If you know anything about the staff of Spinettis Gaming Supplies, the discussion of poker is a common thing around the store environment. Some of our company have actually played in WSOP events and other competitive poker tournaments. We always enjoy the fact that players during the tournament schedule come into our store and buy a lot of different things that are poker and non-poker related. We look forward to seeing some of the WSOP competitors again this year.
Looking through the Internet, this is what we found out about this year’s events that are taking place from May 29th to July 17, 2018.
One: The World Series of Poker Main Event will be broadcast in its entirety on ESPN and Poker Central. Also, expect the Big One for One Drop tournament to get the same media coverage treatment.
Two: The Big Blind Ante is going to be in play this year. The big blind ante will pay the ante for the entire table in some of this year’s tournament offerings.
Three: There are 78 events this year including someone online tournaments on WSOP.com. Of course, you need to be in Nevada to play those, but if you are more into the online poker route, there are some options for you this year.
Four: Speaking of The Big One Drop, it is the first time the charity poker tournament will be played since 2014. Millions of dollars are raised for the One Drop Foundation which focuses on water initiatives.
Five: For players who are looking to save money on transportation this year, many are telling newbies coming to Vegas for the first time that Uber and Lyft are the best way to get around town.
What we love about the World Series of Poker is after the tournament is over, we get the used tournament decks and final table decks from the tournament to sell to fans of poker. You can see below the ones that were used at last year’s 2017 events.
