Final Table #67: WSOP 2010 Preview


Today on my Final Table poker show, Dennis Phillips and I previewed the 2010 World Series Of Poker, which starts in just over 2 weeks.

We were joined by Jack Effel, WSOP Tournament Director, who explained some of the changes in events and venues, how they'll spread out entries for the Main Event to avoid last year's last-minute crush, and how you can register online in advance to ensure you don't get left out of the tournaments you want to play.

We also discussed Dennis' play against Eli Elezra in the "NBC National Heads-Up Championship" that aired Sunday, what we've heard about PokerStars' new high-stakes TV show "The Big Game" (which debuts on Fox next month), and the controversy about players wearing sunglasses in both live and televised poker games, including some recent remarks on the subject by Daniel Negreanu and Tom Dwan.
