Harrah’s/WSOP VP Ty Stewart was on Poker2Nite this week to discuss the 2010 World Series of Poker (which is just six weeks away…crazy).
What didn’t make the air though was some breakingish news about the 2010 WSOP.
On the bracelet ceremonies:
“We’re going to do it bigger and better. In the new big space we have, we have a proper stage … instead of a temporary thing that was amongst the players and peers. It’s going to be done really big with a proper PA system, with proper lighting. It’s going to be a big focus of the World Series more than ever…Many folks will be awarding bracelets…We hope to have the honor of Jack Binion award some of the bracelets, [and] former champions.”
On if there will there ever be an online WSOP bracelet event:
“I think it will be huge, and … at some point we need to do it…Our issue right now is we have to have open fields. A bracelet is all about anybody having equal opportunity and right now we can’t get that equal opportunity even in a dot net with some of the state by state regulations…Over time we hope to have it.”
