I hope they get it sorted out next week.
Is the registration still over in the same cage as the SNG satellites?
What time did you get in line to register? Trying to gauge how early I need to be there.

I cannot wait until the WSOP gets their act together and allows some sort of kiosk registration. If every single airline at every single airport can pull it off, I don't see why 1 casino cannot.
They won't do that because they have this "thing" about needing to verify that the person registering is the person that's going to play. Which I don't understand at all. This is one of the WSOP's stupider foibles. As long as the person that shows up to play is the person that's registered, I don't see the big deal. Other tournaments allow it.
Someday, you'll be able to register online and transfer money out of your bank account directly to pay for it just like you pay bills online. I guess it still takes overnight for the bank to process the transaction. There's no technological reason that payments can't be made to post in real-time, but banks are going to take awhile to catch up to the 21st century.
