World Series of Poker landing on Planet Hollywood?

Friday, 5 February 2010

Last time a rumour flew around regarding the World Series of Poker, it was when speculation grew that the final table would be delayed to co-operate with TV broadcasts. “Nah,” everyone thought. “That’ll never happen.”

The fact that it has happened – and will likely continue to – lends a bit more weight to the whispers that emerged from Cake Poker that the World Series of Poker 2011 might not take place in the Rio. Planet Hollywood is being touted as the new venue.

Many players complain that the Rio, which can comfortably hold a tournament of that magnitude, is too far from the Strip. Planet Hollywood is by contrast right in the heart of Las Vegas.

Harrah’s are allegedly in talks to purchase Planet Hollywood, lending further credence to the speculation. However, most people are suggesting the 2010 WSOP will be at the Rio – seeing as how it could be the last one there, let’s hope all the stops are pulled out.
