Time To Set The Rules

13 May 2012

It is noted that the 2012 edition of the WSOP ® is just around the corner. Not a day goes by without we become aware of any new information that revolves around it, as we seen a couple of days ago regarding "The Big One for ONE DROP" with ESPN's plans for their broadcasts.

Well, this time the novelty is related to verbal behavior that players must follow this year, which will interest to all those that will move to Las Vegas to participate in any of the WSOP events.

In contrast to what happened last year, where the players involved in a hand, could not cross word with intent to extract information from its rival, this measure has been repealed and is now totally opposed to the rule from last year. It seems that many players pressure on this rule, especially from Daniel Negreanu, have taken effect.

Specifically, the rule now says that players are now allowed, in specific cases even encouraged, to talk while playing. In addition, they may celebrate hands won without any problems, always with due respect, obviously.

The announcement came from the mouth of tournament director for the past six years, Jack Effel, during the annual conference normally held WSOP ®:


"The poker room is not a church. Must be able to speak at a poker room. We just have to set the tone, and make this return to the poker tables. "


According to Effel, this new standard will have players find most attractive tournaments, and in turn the audience to follow the series on television, perceive a more pleasant feeling of tables:


"Going back to see what the verbal strategy is at a poker table with this rule. We have rewritten the rule book, indicating that we want players to hold their hands, that if, without going crazy. "


This "remastered" rule is in effect on the 61 events of 2012 series.
