Almost WSOP Time Again

Online Poker Site Review » WSOP » 2011 WSOP » Almost WSOP Time Again


 

The 2011 WSOP will begin on Tuesday May 31. It will be an interesting year for the WSOP with the state of online poker and all.

2011 WSOP Schedule

The big questions to be answered include:
Will the number of entrants be effected by black Friday?
Will the many online poker associated pros be on hand?
Which ones?
Will anyone be arrested, related to online poker?

Now, I for one think the tournament will go off without a hitch. I believe the number of players will be solid, but down a bit from last year. And I think many pros will be at the events, but perhaps a few will feel inclined to sit out.

This year is going to be including unprecedented live coverage, just in time to replace all the canceled poker shows.
