And this is from the aria booking site. I assume other hotels do something similar. Where is the confusion?

Re: 2018 WSOP

Kevmath just tweeted a link to an article from cdc gaming reports in which Ty Stewart of the WSOP briefly mentions the possibility of moving from the Rio to another location such as the new Caesars Convention space mentioned earlier.

Hopefully Iíve posted the link above correctly and everyone can read the article.

He says itís an option but itíd be a huge undertaking. Doesnít sound like theyíre seriously considering it. However, I bet if they offer them a sweet deal since itíll be a brand new venue and they want to get the word out, they might take it.

It sure would be nice to be in a new place with new chairs. Rio chairs are in dire need of rehabilitation.

They might be new, but they would still be the crappy convention chairs.

I'm not sure what the WSOP stands to gain with such a move at this point. Are they looking to expand?

But I agree it would be nice... primarily because it will be on the strip (parking notwithstanding). I don't play as many events at the WSOP as I used to, but when there was a free shuttle, I always used to head over there half a dozen times or so just to watch or check out the scene. But now it costs about $20 to make the trip back and forth, so it certainly isn't worth it. Being on the strip would greatly increase the walk-up traffic. I'm sure the vendors and eateries would love that.
