World Series Final Table Delay - Its Now Official

After rumors for some considerable time it now looks like a 'done deal' - the World Series of Poker 2008 final table delay is confirmed.

The main event this year will run as normal in early july, once down to 9 players there will be a break until November the 9th - when the final table will be televised live.

Here is a link to USA Today's Article on the subject (will open in a new window)

What do you think of the delay to the final table of the world series main event? Good for the game? bad? Irrelevant to your day-to-day existance??

There is an 8-page detailed look at the Best World Series Satellites over at SNG Planet - we'll see you in November!

Cheers, Mark

I absolutely hate it!!!!! It changes the whole tournament. Part of winning this tournament is surviving the grueling 10-14 days of poker play.

I think I could go on for hours on this one.

So many unanswered questions... What happens to the interest on all of that money? Are people allowed to use alternates, and if so under what circumstances? (e.g. What if I'm in the Army reserves and get called to Iraq?)
