I’ve been involved in the poker industry for quite some time. But I’ve never gone to the World Series of Poker, either as a player or a member of the media.
So, I was in Las Vegas this past weekend, and decided to stop by the Rio just to see what the WSOP looks like — sans all the poker players — since I’m likely not to be there yet again this year.
And, before I start, I should say I got kicked out, as well (not in a mean manner, more like, “you’re not supposed to be back here.” I was kindly asked to leave the area). I guess it’s not terribly surprising. I didn’t call ahead as a member of a media. But there also wasn’t anything really telling members of the public not to go inside. There were a few stanchions with openings, but no signs declaring the WSOP area off limits.
Anyway, the grand takeaway? It’s not that exciting. There are a lot of tables. And signs. But it was still cool just to see what it looks like in person.
The stuff that is actually of interest:
Here’s some pictures, if you’re curious. Good luck to everyone who is playing. And maybe I’ll see some of you there when they are actually playing poker, some day.
