Life Ban from WSOP
Posted on June 1, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
Many things are allowed on friendly poker tables, fewer to official poker tournaments but something that nowhere in the world is allowed is stealing the chips of your fellow poker player. This is what happened on the WSOP $1,000 NLHE event at Saturday night at Rio hotel in Las Vegas. During the third level of the event many players watched a 50 years old man escorted outside the hotel by Harrah’s security stuff.
Jack Effel WSOP tournament director explained that the specific player was playing a poker hand with someone else during the announcement of the 20 minutes break. As soon as the break was announced the players that were on the table but not participating to the hand left the poker table. The two remaining players played the hand and the winner was the ‘offender’. The card dealer gave him the pot and the man started to pick up his chips. However, he used his body to hide his side player chips out of the dealer’s eye line and using his second hand pushed some chips towards his stack.
The security camera was able to detect the event and a few minutes later the man received a visit from Harrah’s security stuff. Jack Effel concluded with the statement that the player will disqualify for life from all the WSOP events.
So far, World Series of Poker is a great success. On the official WSOP page was a post with comments of some famous and veteran WSOP players who express their opinions regarding the WSOP 2010. The players were delighted as they describe the event as a spectacle similar to Grand Canyon. The poker room in the Rio Hotel features 9.300 square meters of action, 378 poker tables, 1000 dealers, thousand spectators and the ability to host over 3,760 active poker players per day.
For all those who would like to play on the WSOP there is still plenty of time as the last event is scheduled for July 5 – it is the famous $10,000 Buy-in No limit Texas Holdem event. Please note that many poker rooms online offer the opportunity to win a WSOP full sponsored package in order to live the greatest poker event of the planet.
