    As far as I know, there isn't one. I'm guessing they won't put one in place until the whole sale of Caesars to El Dorado is finalized.

    Also, I think Bill didn't really do very much besides sit in his office and hide out from customer service issues, so he probably isn't missed. As you've seen, WSOP seems to be functioning the same way without him.

    Any reason for them not to just keep the identity of whoever's running WSOP online unknown?

    It might be a joint effort, or someone just taking on the extra work for the time being.

    BUMP

    Danielle Barille appears to be the new manager of WSOP.com, according to a press release about the WSOP Online Bracelet events in 2020:

    “We believe the 2020 offering of online gold bracelet events features our best schedule yet,” said WSOP.com’s Director of Online Poker Danielle Barille. “This year we offer a consistent schedule of Sunday events every week of the WSOP, plus a special selection of eight events from June 28 to July 5 to coincide with the biggest week of the live WSOP when most players are in town to play.”
    I don't know much about Danielle. Here is her Twitter: https://twitter.com/YeeGone

    Here is her picture:




    I tweeted to her and asked her to confirm that she's taken over Bill's position, but haven't received a response yet.

    Here's Danielle's Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/danielle-barille-87a88499



    Caesars Interactive Entertainment Inc.
    6 years 10 months

    - Senior Manager, Product and Operations
    Oct 2014 – Present

    - Manager, Business Operations
    Jan 2014 – Oct 2014

    - Business Operations Analyst
    May 2013 – Dec 2013



    PokerNews
    Business Operations Manager

    So she was at Pokernews, then Caesars Interactive Entertainment pretty much from the beginning of wsop.com. She appears to be fairly young -- likely in her 30s.

    They have made some small horrible changes to promotions but everything else seems status quo

    Seems like she has little social media presence. She hasn't tweeted in over a month.

    Yeah, everything does seem pretty status quo over at wsop.com. It almost seems as if they're complacent for now muddling along as a failsite, hoping to maybe make money in the future if bigger states join online poker legalization. They've made no effort (to my knowledge) to get into PA, which makes me think that it's not exciting to them unless some really big players like California enter the market. They do have a casino in PA, so I would think licensing wouldn't have been an issue.

    jesus Christ I didn't know that...that's just unfucking real and shows how much of a mong corporation the evil empire is...if stars went into PA gonna guess that it didn't require that much extra to get a site up and running like some crazy regulations that NJ didn't have...

    I doubt that they need to run dedicated support or something like that in state so there is exactly zero reason for them not to have an online presence in PA...I cant imagine in a state as big as PA that the licensing fee even as steep as it is would be a deterrent...plus the more states you add the more you get out of your fixed costs like support, game security, etc...

    fucking morons, each and fucking every one of them...

    We’re just going to ignore how hot she is in that picture. I’d get in those sugar walls in a heart beat.

    Rini took to Twitter for the first time in months to call out "some American scum".

    Nope.

    Seems she barely uses Twitter, and when she does, she just quickly posts a WSOP.com promo and doesn't interact with anyone.

    The lack of leadership there has been astounding.
