Yesterday’s results from the 2016 WSOP

The “Yesterday’s results” header is ready, but obviously on Day 1 of the World Series of Poker we don’t have any content for it yet.

Today’s events at the 2016 WSOP

The opening day of the 2016 WSOP kicked off with the Casino Employee Tournament, a $565 buy-in event open to anyone with even a tangential connection to the casino or poker industry.

Live updates of today’s action can be found here.

Upcoming events at the 2016 WSOP

Day two of the 2016 WSOP will see the open events get underway, as the highly anticipated Colossus II will pack the Rio to the rafters with poker players for the first two flights (A & B) of the event. Flights C & D will take place on Friday, with Flights E & F on Saturday.

Saturday will also see the start of Event #3, the $10k Seven Card Stud Championship.

WSOP News & Notes

- The WSOP’s new social media czar, Kevin Mathers, is having some #hashtagproblems. Mathers is currently taking suggestions on the best way to hashtag WSOP events this year.

- Barstool Sports has the lowdown on the World Series of Poker, and the poker world by and large, for anyone who isn’t fully immersed in the world of poker.

Quick Hitters

- A documentary detailing the life of poker Hall of Famer Daniel Negreanu is now available on Netflix. The movie, titled Kid Poker, first aired in Canada on TSN4 late last year.

You can watch the trailer here:

- The unregulated online poker market in the United states just got a little smaller. According to John Mehaffey, Merge Gaming is no longer accepting new players from the United States across all of the network’s verticals.

- The final table of the $300k buy-in Aria Super High Roller Bowl is set, and the final seven are quite the mix of poker’s old guard and online wizards. The final table includes poker veterans, Phil Hellmuth, Erik Seidel and Dan Shak, as well as young stars Fedor Hoz, Matt Berkey, Bryn Kenney, and chip leader Rainer Kempe.

- The New York Senate Racing, Gaming and Wagering Committee passed a DFS bill this afternoon, but as’s Dustin Gouker explains, the measure doesn’t have anything approaching widespread support.
