Big Changes Planned for this Year's WSOP

Thursday, 15 May 2014

The organisers promised that this year's World Series of Poker (WSOP) would be bigger and better than ever and during a recent conference call they outlined exactly how they are looking to make this happen.

Talking to members of the public and introducing a number of innovations, the likes of Ty Stewart explained that their main aim this summer is to inject some "fun" back into proceedings.

On top of providing top quality poker, the Rio will host a number of extracurricular activities, including Frisbee catching dogs, indoor blimps and a zip-line inside the Rio. Moreover, there will be a new range of food options such as the award winning Hash House A Go Go.

On top of the entertainment being provided for players, the actual poker room inside the Rio has undergone a transformation which means players will be sit on new chairs and rub their feet on comfortable carpets.

Additionally, the organisers have increased the number of cashiers' desks in order to reduce waiting time for prospective players and the late registration times for players in the Main Event will last for 6 hours.

For anyone who isn't able to make it to Las Vegas this year, there will be 32 tournaments streamed online which means you can watch all the action as it unfolds from the comfort of your laptop.
