  1. After a pandemic-induced longer-than-usual wait, the World Series of Poker released their complete 2021 schedule last week allowing poker players to begin making their plans to be in Las Vegas for the fall. A grand total of 88 bracelets are up for grabs at the Rio Hotel & Casino between September 30 and November 23. In this edition of 5 Things, PocketFives Editor in Chief Lance Bradley takes a look at the schedule and what it might mean for poker's most prestigious event in 2021. #1 - A Pitchfork-Free Zone In years past, the WSOP schedule was released in pieces, usually with groups of ev
  2. In the final days of 2020, former World Series of Poker Main Event champion Huckleberry Seed became the 60th person inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame. Seed, a four-time WSOP bracelet winner including the 1996 WSOP Main Event, is undoubtedly a worthy recipient of what should be considered poker’s highest honor. The mission of the Poker of Fame should be to celebrate the game itself while recognizing the players and people who have shined brightest and helped elevate the game during their careers. That being said, the current system responsible for nominating and enshrining people into the
  3. After a vote by the 30 of the 31 living members of the Poker Hall of Fame, 1996 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion Huckleberry Seed has been named as the sole member of the Poker Hall of Fame Class of 2020. “Hearing the news that I am being inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame this year brought back memories of my early poker days, walking into Binion’s Horseshoe, about to start a poker session, admiring all the Poker Hall of Famers on the wall,” Seed said. “It feels good to be included with all the poker legends that I once idolized and competed against over the year. Thank you, eve
  4. When World Series of Poker officials announced in mid-April that the 2020 WSOP was being postponed due to the uncertainty over the coronavirus pandemic, they promised that players would be playing for "WSOP glory from their homes" this summer. That promise was met last week when the WSOP announced a total of 85 online bracelet events with 31 set for WSOP.com for players in Nevada and New Jersey, and another 54 for players outside of the United States to be battled for on GGPoker.com. The response from some of the poker community wasn't all that positive with a large number of complaints fo
  5. Over the past week, comments from WPT host Mike Sexton about the value of a WSOP bracelethave drawn the attention of the poker world. That attention grew even more significant when the Executive Director of the WSOP, Ty Stewart (pictured), replied to some of Sexton's arguments. Soon after Sexton's thoughts on the current state of the WSOP were published, Stewart stepped up. "Despite this forum being a PartyPoker blog, we (the WSOP) would never question your motivations to want what is best for the industry and the WSOP," Stewart started. He then responded to Sexton's thoughts with an extend
  6. On Tuesday, just two weeks away from the start of the 2014 World Series of Poker, WSOP officials held a conference call to preview the event and field questions from reporters. PocketFives was on the call and learned that we'll see Frisbee dogs before the "Shuffle up and deal" command at some point this summer. Who doesn't like Frisbee dogs? Answer: Everyone loves Frisbee dogs. 2014 marks the tenth consecutive year the WSOP has been held at the Rio after moving from Binion's in Downtown Las Vegas. WSOP Vice President Ty Stewart started the call by saying, "We hope to make summer in Vegas th

  12. Mike Matusow will not face any discipline from the World Series of Poker after he threatened to assault another player following his elimination from Event #5 ($1,000 NLHE Freezeout) of the 2020 WSOP Online on Sunday night. Matusow, a four-time bracelet winner, was eliminated after playing just two hands of the online tournament and began berating the player who won a key-hand against him leading to his eventual elimination. "We take prevention of abusive behavior at WSOP tournaments or on the WSOP.COM platform extremely seriously. We have a number of preventive measures online including
  13. After having to postpone the 2020 World Series of Poker due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, WSOP officials promised poker players they would soon have a solution so that would "allow players to chase WSOP glory from their homes."

  15. Facing several years of declining World Series of Poker Main Event participation, the tournament's organizers sought a new marketing strategy that would create a splash and attract new faces. Their solution, implemented last year, was to bump the first place prize up to a massive $10 million and entice new players with the promise of an eight-figure payday. The approach seemed to work and after all was said and done, the 2014 Main Event saw its first increase in numbers in years. But not everyone is a fan of the new top-heavy structure; six-time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu has argued
  16. [caption width="640"] The 2016 World Series of Poker is less than two weeks away.[/caption] In a little under two weeks the halls of the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas will transform into a seven week long summer camp for poker players when the 2016 World Series of Poker kicks off.

  19. Last week, PocketFives published an article about players on the World Poker Tour voting 80-20 in favor of a shot clockfor decisions. The overwhelmingly slanted vote resulted in WPT ambassador Mike Sexton remarking, "I'm guessing/hoping you'll see some type of 'shot clock' incorporated by the WPT for Season XIII." The momentum for a shot clock has now spilled over to the World Series of Poker, whose Circuit may experiment with it this year. WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart told PocketFives in an exclusive statement when asked about the prospects of a clock coming to the series, "We are
