Pokercast 485 - Pre Holiday WSOP 2018 Schedule preview & Stars $25K No Limit Championship

Episode #485 - December 19th, 2017

Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - On this episode of the Pokercast: The schedule for the 2018 WSOP has been officially released, we talk about the new events and other stories. To begin Terrence is drawing ever closer to the baby due date and Adam nearly gave up on his weight bet. In the news: The WSOP schedule has new and exciting events to offer in 2018, we talk about all of them! Also Stars promotes a new $25k championship tournament which could have a path to victory for non-high rollers, plus a bad beat for the winner of a huge bad beat jackpot in Reno this week. We’ve also got your mail on deck which contains quite a few pet peeves as well as examining the question: How do some of the big name pros really perceive themselves?

Re: Pokercast 485 - Pre Holiday WSOP 2018 Schedule preview & Stars $25K No Limit Championship

perhaps the WSOP have put the One Drop after the Main for the following reasons:

-Some people who usually only come to town for a short period of time for high rollers will play the Main as a warm up
-Perhaps if the One Drop doesn't fill then a John Hesp type might play his rush after final tabling the Main
-Perhaps they know that the One Drop will overshadow the Main and so they're expecting people to tune into PokerGo for the Main and stick around for the One Drop and then they've got you hooked on poker

I don't think someone who sees a headline about a huge first prize in poker is either instantly pay to play the main or subscribe to PokerGo and so why bother ordering tournaments for this type of person?

^I also figured it has to do with television. If I'm reading the schedule correctly, the Big One will immediately follow the Main final table (i.e. the very next day). So the stage, the camera crew, production, etc. will all be in place.

Of course, this is predicated on ESPN televising the One Drop, which might be an incorrect assumption on my part. I haven't checked that part of it.

Am I losing my mind or was that Ryan Laplante hand discussed on an earlier podcast?

Adam: Curious about your diet and if you've laid it out before and I just missed it. Would surely like to give it a try and revisit 180
