We’re around halfway through the 2019 World Series of Poker, and with over 40 events in the can, players are either enjoying or enduring the middle stretch of the most fabulous festival in poker. We’ll let you decide who falls into which category.
HALLAERT OFFERS SAVAGE TAKE ON STACKING
Kenny Hallaert wasn’t happy with how one player chose to ‘stack’ his chips during a recent WSOP event, but do you agree? Maybe there does need to be a ruling on this.
Another clown here @wsop who doesn't want to stack his chips . Had a similar one earlier with stacks of 5 who literally said he wants to annoy people. We really need a rule for this. pic.twitter.com/CdjErSEo7H

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EARLY WSOP AND MID WSOP
There’s a version of you upon arrival at the Rio in late May and there’s another version at the middle stage of the greatest poker show on Earth.
Beginning of WSOP:
Wow so cool how poker brings all these people from different countries together
End of WSOP:
Player 1: “Raise, vun point two”
Me: “ITS 1200 U DICKHEAD”

DROP IT LIKE ITS HOT
Who says poker can’t be more like a game of roulette? When the cards are hot, you’re hot, people.
Idea for poker tables to have a digital display of the last 100 board cards (like Roulette tables) so we can keep track of what cards are hot.
