Poker Around the World


WSOP Conference Call – Changes Announced

The World Series of Poker held an hour-long conference call on Tuesday detailing the 2012 WSOP,

On the agenda was answering questions from the poker media on a variety of topics the newly announced WSOP APAC in Australia, the new events on the 2012 schedule, Rule Changes and Q&A session with the poker media.

We wont bore you with those details instead we’ve highlighted some of the rule changes directed towards you the player.

No Talking About Your Hand Rule

Players will now be allowed to say anything about their hand that they want, provided it meets two criterions: #1 the player who is talking cannot be capable of reopening the action and #2, the player must not expose their hand to the other players.

The change is an attempt to bring back the verbal strategy of the game, as well as to liven up the atmosphere, as it was explained, “the poker room is not a church.”

Excessive Celebration

The WSOP also announced an easing of the excessive celebration rule. Players will now be able to be a bit more vocal in celebrating victories, within reason. What precisely will be allowed and what will earn a player a penalty will be at the discretion of the WSOP staff.


There will be some type of recognition for the passing of poker legend Amarillo Slim, but there are no plans for a formal tribute at this time.

The $50k Players Championship will be played as a HORSE tournament through the final

A change to the comps system will see players receive Rewards Points instead of Food Vouchers. The Rewards Points received will be based on the tournament fee paid –while lower buy-in tournaments will see the reward decrease from a $10 food voucher to under $10 worth of Rewards Points (which can be used to purchase anything from food to sneakers), the WSOP is expanding these rewards to events ranging from satellites to WSOP Circuit events. As it was explained, “it’s a superior currency and there is more opportunity to earn points.”

Message from the CEO

They say March Madness but we say MAY Madness!

Between all the SNG Races, the WSOP Events and iPOPs II Live coming our way, May is shaping out to be one very exciting month at SunPoker!
