WOO HOO. It’s that time of year again. The 2010 WSOP starts Friday, May 28 and runs until Saturday, July 17th when the Main Event will play down to the November Nine.
2010 WSOP will be held at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. This year’s WSOP playing surface will cover 120,000 square feet of space and include 377 tables.
I can’t wait to watch the live action that will be streamed (looking for that schedule and will post it), and follow the live blogs at bluffmagazine.com, pokerati.com, and more.
Having been spoiled by the timely updates and announcements from Jeffrey Pollack the former WSOP Commissioner (who retired from the post at the end of the 2009 WSOP), I have been searching for whom in the WSOP I might follow this year. You would think WSOP Communications Director Seth Palansky would be a good choice. Turns out Seth’s not much of a communicator – at least not online. Huh? What are we suppose to read the newspaper? Maybe he’s practicing up, so, here’s his online social media accounts in case he comes up to speed in a couple of weeks. Seth Palansky on Twitter: @WSOPRGUY; Seth Palansky on Facebook; Seth Palansky on LinkedIn. Maybe Seth will read this and provide us with the social media accounts of this year’s point person. Seth?
Okay, so back to the WSOP… The 2010 WSOP action will pause for 4 months, then resume with the final table of the 10K Main Event being played by the November Nine November 6 – 9, 2010. Presuming that the 2010 ME final table schedule follows that of the 2009 ME final table, the November Nine will begin play around noon on Saturday, November 6 and play down – whatever time it takes – to the final two. Reaching the final two will probably happen sometime on Sunday the 7th. The final two will rest and resume play at 10:00 pm on Monday, November 8, when play is expected to continue until and be completed on Tuesday, November 9.
Need to check out some links above, but, need to go right now. Will update later.
