World Series Of Poker Ready To Wrap Up 2005 Main Event
Huh? In their ongoing attempt to drag out each World Series of Poker as long as possible, officials have announced that in the next week, all of the paper work will be completed from the 2005 WSOP. That also means the final bracelets will be given out live on ESPN.
The network and the WSOP have worked hand in hand for the past several years to ensure that no fan would be able to watch any of the exciting action live. In order to accommodate ESPN, the WSOP has moved the final table of the main event back by four months.
The delay in the process of completing the WSOP actually began back in 2001. Organizers felt that they needed to keep the brand name out in the public for as long as possible, so they started handing out bracelets from late events six months from the end of the tournaments.
The paper work from the WSOP can be completed in two days, according to one employee that wished to remain anonymous. If that occurred, however, that would end the WSOP for that year, so officials have delayed the signing of the final results papers by five year for each event. That means that the paper work from 2005 has just been completed.
Starting in 2014, the paper work will take even longer to process. With the main event in 2009 not ending until November, it may take six year and not five to sign the final document because many of the staff members are off in late November and do not return until December.
If you are confused by all of this, don't worry, you are not alone. We here at Craps Online are still trying to figure out why nine players have to wait four months to complete the main event. Only when that is figured out, can anyone begin to understand anything else that the WSOP does.
