July 7th follow up on July 6th’s post: WSOP Main Event Sold Out
While I was sleeping…
About 2:20am EST, Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack (@JeffreyPollack), tweeted two messages in a row:
Part I: A tough + disappointing day for sure. Last thing we want to do is turn people away, but we hit our maximum capacity for the day.
Part II: I’m truly regretful this wasn’t avoided + that we could not accommodate more people for the Main Event.
After reading all the tweets that were posted while I slept, the number of 2009 WSOP Main Event bracelet hopefuls that were shut out appears to be in the 500 – 700 range.
Day One (all four) of the 2009 WSOP Main Event is over. There will be two day 2s; 2A and 2B. Then everyone is together starting day 3 of the Main Event.
