Again, not saying that to persuade someone to use Clear or not. I guess it’s better to not make it even easier for people to get your data. But at the same time, it certainly isn’t difficult. As far as privacy is now concerned, we’re all screwed.
I agree with your general point except… your data is not readily available to most people. It is only available to those who are willing to put in some effort or pay some price and/or break the law. But things are obviously going more in that direction. I just don’t see the sense in helping that along unless there’s a good reason.

Re: 2021 WSOP

What Doc said. We all have to decide on our personal acceptable level of risk.

Trying to equate the Equifax breach to Clear isn't good analysis, though. A hurricane just hit the gulf, so I should be worried about hurricanes here in Colorado?

Reminds me of my neighbor. Has a couple of shepards to guard the house. Guns. Was telling us recently he's set mirrors and pictures in specific places so he can see reflections of the intruders when they come.

Except nothing of note has ever happened in this neighborhood. Also, he doesn't have **** worth coming after.

Sure, he's ready if there is an invasion, but it must be exhausting to cnostantly be on high alert against the one-in-a-million shot.

You are right on the mark.

I have heard school system were broken in to and/or school systems were hacked.

I have heard of hospital and doctors offices were broken in to and/or their system hacked.

I have heard Banks , Credit Card processing co, Big Financial brokerage companies were hacked.

And many more places where we American have given our whole life stories willingly or unwillingly for whole our lives.

I am not advocating for WSOP or CLEAR but we live in horrible time and have accept risk and go with it..

What services you can reject to use ? Or who can says they are not using any of above services ? Why in the name of principle we are fighting one thing.

What will all the people do who are opposed to clear or any similar system is only way for WSOP to verify validity of your vaccination ? Will not play WSOP and come back from Las Vegas because they don’t want share their information?

This is not directed to anyone here but I have seen people suggesting to use dangerous home remedies and denying seriousness of COVID-19, jumping out ahead of whole country and getting vaccination for them , for their families and for their partners in crime in the name of National Security!

This isn’t apples and oranges. It’s apples and apples. The chances of being hit by a hurricane in Colorado are several orders of magnitude less than the gulf.

You don’t have to accept the risk. Clear is not mandatory. And I don’t know what I would do if it were. Probably play Venetian/Wynn only.

Re: 2021 WSOP

*Sigh*. Of course, the hurricane isn't a perfect analogy, but neither is "Equifax was hacked, so Clear will be too".

Absolutely zero evidence of any correlation or causation there.

To try to steer this back on the WSOP track, my suspicion is that CET will try to set up devices to scan Clear QR codes for WSOP validation, but mess up the tech.

I didn’t really say one will cause the other or is correlated to the other. I said if one can happen the other can happen. I don’t see any reason to believe it can’t.

And yes, I don’t think this will be logistical smooth sailing, regardless of how the WSOP implements the mandate.

Re: 2021 WSOP

I bit the bullet and signed up for clear health pass. Tried to do it on a PC, and it requires you to pay. To do it for free, you have to do it on a mobile device. So anyway, it scanned my driver's license, my face, and my vax card, and now it has a QR code (or something like that) that is specifically listed as a WSOP registration pass. I already forgot, but I must have clicked a link from the WSOP site to download it...

Re: 2021 WSOP

Hello, can someone help with Bravo Registration questions. I'm coming in next week and will be playing in the $600 NL Deepstack on Monday, 10/04. The rest of the week I'll likely be playing the morning satellite and/or the dailies and possibly sit and goes or cash. At any rate, with regards to Bravo. I guess my question is would that be something I can use to register for the morning satellites or dailies (at the last minute)....

Meaning, I don't want to register for a morning satty in case I sleep in and miss it. And, suppose i decide to play the 4:00 daily at 3:30 (after busting out of the 1:00 daily let's say.

Can I use Bravo to register for these at the last minute and get a seat assignment via a Kiosk or do I really need to just wait in line and register at the time of event?

Same question for the "Tournament Account"?

Thanks in advance!

The one time validation when you first get there isn’t that bad. Do it that one time and it’s out of the way. Then continue to register/pay online and print slips at the kiosks while saving yourself tons of time.
Thanks, appreciate it.

Re: 2021 WSOP

You can prebuy daily/sng tournies and just get a refund on unused ones.

Lets say all u want to do is play the $165 sng’s for the day. You can buy 15x $165 tickets and use them for any $165 sng. Any unused tickets you can get a refund or just use for the next day.

Re: 2021 WSOP

are there any Omaha 8 or better tournaments that are fixed limit? Have there ever been? A friend says he played in one a few years ago and that 1,500 event
Starting Oct 1st is fixed. I told him I did not think so.

Re: 2021 WSOP

Looking forward to this one. Hopefully a good turnout. Curious how the level of play will change with 40 min levels day 1 instead of the usual 1 hour. At least we are starting with more chips this year. Pretty ambitious to play down to 5 players at end of day 2. I feel like in years past there were about 30 or so who made it to day 3.

Staying at an AirBNB for the first time (which I look forward to cooking my own food instead of overpaying for fast food like usual)

Any recommendations on best grocery delivery service out there between UberEats Groceries, Instacart, etc.? I usually use Amazon Fresh/Whole Foods

R u talking about Reunion ?

1,First day Levels will be 30 Minutes.

2, IMO The structure is faster than previous year . Don’t be surprised if we reach to 5 players earlier then end of the 2nd day.

Re: 2021 WSOP

Per bravo, Rio has no cash games running now (noon Monday).
Curious if cash running during WSOP this year ?
Guess we’ll find out in 3 days.

Smiths is fairly close to you and per their website has delivery - Decent Grocery store on my few visits - but I just stock my hotel fridge personally when I hit town and have zero experience with delivery service.

Re: 2021 WSOP

Smiths uses instacart. Just go to Instacart site make an account and then can choose where to shop, Smiths is on there and they have Boars Head deli meat, Walmart delivery does not unfortunately.

I don't know if any of them will deliver to a hotel room tho. Better check with them 1st.
