The Executive Director for the World Series Of Poker (WSOP), Ty Stewart, has recently asked players for their opinions on this year’s Las Vegas extravaganza.
Few would argue that the 2013 incarnation of the WSOP wasn’t a success. Indeed, with records broken and millionaires made the reaction from those involved has been largely positive.However, while things went well this time around, the team behind the scenes are keen to implement some improvements ahead of next year’s edition, it 45th.With this in mind, Stewart sent out an open question via Twitter yesterday asking players and spectators to name the ‘#1 improvement that could be made for 2014 WSOP’.The tweet soon attracted a number of responses from the likes of Mickey Petersen, Dan O’Brien and Daniel Alaei who all asked for more $10,000 events to be added to the schedule.On top of this, Bryan Devonshire also asked Stewart to ensure that in 2014 some provisions were made to ‘clean the tables’ and that he needs to employ ‘more cocktail servers with better attitudes’.Stewart subsequently promised to work on introducing more high buy-in events and also answered calls that a live stream of WSOP events be reintroduced, stating that money has been spent this year to ensure that this happens in 2014.
