It will be great if we had some kind of Poker Alliance group that would contribution to both parties more that Sheldon "Jabba the Hutt" Adelson.

You may want to brush up on your understanding of what various political parties stand for. The Libertarian Party favors limited government involvement in most spheres of life, and not just laissez-faire economic policy. Libertarians believe in freedom in all aspects of life, which would include the freedom to play online poker if one so chooses.

Republicans very well may be responsible for the abolition of online poker, but I'm not aligning with Republicans, sir. Republicans are known as being positioned on the right, which is hypocritical because being on the right means less government and regulation. They may be on the right regarding economic decisions, but they are not right-aligned when it comes to dictating who can marry who, who can have an abortion, etc.

Sheldon is 86 years old - just give it a little time. The problem will work itself out. Nature does have its advantages.

Re: 2020 WSOP Schedule

2020 WSOP has officially been canceled. There will be NO live 2020 WSOP. With rising rates of Covid across more than 30 states, it is expected all live tournament series will be canceled across all states in the great union.

Gosh, here it is November 4th and no communique from WSOP. I would say I was right that it was canceled and never had a chance of going.

The banning of online poker was tacked onto a port security bill by the GOP for homeland defense that had to pass. So dems were voting on the port security bill not the banning of online poker. The GOP is 100% to blame for the death of online poker.

They could have voted "present", and let the republicans gloat in victory. But they didn't.

Haha, this doesn't count. It's still only open to Nevada and New Jersey players since it starts out online on WSOP.com or GGPoker abroad.

And only a Main Event does NOT make a WSOP Summer live series, or Fall series..

Re: 2020 WSOP Schedule

Well the regular WSOP is only open to Las Vegas Rio casino players. This is open to all of Nevada and all of NJ. Also you said "There will be NO live 2020 WSOP"

This is live poker being played in 2020 at the WSOP at Rio casino.

Re: 2020 WSOP Schedule

It wouldn't be open to me. I tried to get "certified" once when I was staying at the Gold Coast. Their software kept identifying me at being somewhere in California. I was on the phone with their tech support for over half an hour and we couldn't make it work.

Newt Gingrich orchestrated this if I'm not mistaken so probably best to give blame to the individual rather than a party. I think he also cheated on his wife while she was undergoing treatment for cancer so all around great guy.

Newt left office in 1999. I think that was before even Paradise Poker, much less the online ban.

Does WSOP.com often have $10K buy-in tourneys? I'm as terrified of $10K computer glitches as I am $10K bad beats. I'd never risk playing from a place near the border and triggering the location-verifier.

Re: 2020 WSOP Schedule

If you're not aware, Gold Coast is literally across the street from the Rio, where the WSOP is held. So, at least 40 miles from California.

As for 10k's online, it might be the first time, just so they can call it the Main Event. I might be wrong though, I haven't really played online since PokerStars.
