    **** Official 2021 WSOP Thread ****

    I feel like we need a thread on this forum. No one reads the other side half the time.

    A HUGE game changing announcement today from WSOP:

    So players still must be vaccinated but now there is no longer a requirement to wear a mask for 12-14 hours in a row at the tables. I have to imagine this will drastically change many peoples plans.

    I personally will be in town the first week of October and hopefully first week of November. Couple Reunion billets and probably the $1500 O8 the first week. Maybe the $600 deep stack on 4th if not still in the others. Some off site casinos have good series going at the same time for the lower stakes guy. I might check out some at The Golden Nugget and The Orleans as well.

    Anyone planning on being in town for WSOP? Druff still want to foot race me?
    It's hilarious that we as a society think everyone can be a dr, a lawyer, an engineer. Some people are just fucking stupid. Why can't we just accept that?

    Iím playing the $1500 O/8 and the $1500 limit holdíem during the first week. Bit the bullet and got a room at the Rio. Paying $1075 for 8 nights. Iím Diamond Plus, so your rates may vary.

    Maybe Iíll see you at the 08.

    Iím Diamond also. I donít stay at the Rio though. I prefer to get away from it all honestly. I think this trip is Ballyís.

    I would've played the O8, but I'm going to skip the beginning of the series (and perhaps the whole thing) this year because of Delta and whatnot.

    I haven't decided about the middle and end of the series yet.

    The O8 is a great event, actually. Just play solid and you should do well, provided you don't get bad beat repeatedly, which of course can happen very easily at O8. All of the $1500 Omaha events at the WSOP have fairly soft fields, at least in the early-middle goings before the fish mostly get eliminated.

    Does anyone know if cash games at WSOP will fall under the vaccination rule? And if so how will they possibly enforce that?

    Not sure as the WSOP brass are not sure.

    IMO knowing their M.O.
    you will see the rules and protocols change daily dependent on what is the Most profitable situation for WSOP....

    I am wondering if there will even be cash games.

    I am hearing they are short on dealers. The closure of the normal Rio poker room (which I always thought was weird to be operating during WSOP, when WSOP itself had cash games, and this room was clear on the other side of the large property) was supposedly because they need the dealers for WSOP. (However, the room is also not reopening after WSOP.)

    It is possible that, in order to play cash, you will need to have your TR card swiped at a podium, and it will say if you are vaccinated or not. Just a guess, though. That is, assuming there's cash games at all.

    LOL

    "Came back from break. Guy sits down at the wrong table and is in the utg seat. Action is on him. He raises. And then of course someone pointed out that that he is at the wrong table. So craziness ensues.

    Of course floor gets called over for a ruling. First floor rules that this man gets to play the hand out with someone else’s chips and all different stacks because it’s significant action. And then any chips he won or lost will be taken or added to his stack at his actual table. Obviously, wtf. We ask for a second ruling. Same thing. So we ask for a third. And finally the third floor man overturns it and says his hand his dead.

    What a shit show."

    Amazing that this was even in question.

    100% they need to back out the entire hand, no matter what happened (unless the guy just folded UTG, then it broke out the same as if the seat were still empty).
