TSN Archives: Tracking Ken Griffey Jr.’s meteoric rise from No. 1 pick to MLB star

เคล็ดลับในการรับมือกับจังหวะที่ไม่ดี
February 16, 2021 0 Comments



Few rookies have captured the nation’s attention quite like Ken Griffey Jr., the lefty with the sweet swing, huge smile and incredible all-around talent when he was a 19-year-old kid playing in the majors. Instead of giving you just one Junior Griffey story, we’re going to give you a glimpse at how a weekly publication like TSN covered a phenom like Griffey in the world before social media. 
Every issue of TSN included hundreds of little notes on players and teams, in every sport. There were plenty of features and in-depth stories, of course, but lots of the pages read like a compilation of Twitter-size news bytes. With his dad already a TSN regular, Junior had name recognition and the talent that intoxicated the baseball-loving country. We’ll start with the first mention we could find of Junior and go all the way up to his first (of many) TSN cover — which came out right when he made his MLB debut. And then, for fun, we’ll add one entertaining tidbit from his rookie season. 
TSN ARCHIVES: TSN introduces Joe DiMaggio to America♦♦♦♦♦June 8, 1987The first mention of Ken Griffey’s son in the pages of The Sporting News magazine was actually in the team notes section. In the team notes for the Pirates, written by Bob Hertzel. Scouting director Elmer Gray was responsible for Cincinnati drafting Ken Griffey when he was with the Reds. The Pirates hold the second pick in June’s amateur draft, and Gray could have a hand in the drafting of Ken Griffey Jr.♦♦♦♦♦June 15, 1987On the left side of Page 2, the table of contents, is the first picture of a smiling Ken Griffey Jr., to grace the pages of TSN. Junior’s wearing a Braves uniform and cap; the picture was taken before the draft in the Atlanta dugout, where his dad was playing in 1987. The story of the MLB Draft results — mostly about Griffey Jr. — is on Page 22. Here’s an excerpt, from the article written by Seattle-based contributor Jim Street.Griffey kept the comparisons within the family, saying he saw himself as a copy of his father. “We do basically everything the same,” he said. “We hit, run and throw the same.”But Ken Griffey Sr. disagreed. “To me, he’s got more power than I will ever have. He’s a lot better than I was at the same age.”As a senior at Moeller this season, Griffey batted .478 with seven home runs and 28 RBIs in 24 games. He was 13 for 13 in stolen bases. “I can’t compare him to other players around the country because I haven’t seen them,” said Moeller coach Mike Cameron. “But he’s the finest, ability-wise, I’ve seen in 20 years.”Among the current major leaguers Cameron coached are Barry Larkin and Buddy Bell of the Reds. ♦♦♦♦♦June 22, 1987Longtime TSN staffer Stan Isle wrote a weekly notes column in the magazine for more than a decade, and he led off his column this week talking about Griffey Jr. At age 17, Ken Griffey Jr. signs a $150,000 contract with the Mariners as the No. 1 selection in major league baseball’s amateur draft. Contrast that with the circumstances 18 years ago, when Ken Griffey Sr. — now an Atlanta Braves outfielder in his 15th major league season — signed his first professional contract with Cincinnati. As the elder Griffey recalled, Cincinnati game him “a jock strap, a pair of sanitary hose and a Reds warmup jacket” before dispatching him to Bradenton (Gulf Coast) with a contract that called for $500 a month. He was selected in the 29th round of the 1969 draft, perhaps the 700th player chosen. Young Griffey is a power-hitting outfielder like his father and a heralded product of Cincinnati’s Moeller High School. “He runs like I did when I was chasing his mother,” said the proud father. Griffey has reported to Seattle’s rookie league team at Bellingham (Northwest), where he can look forward to bus trips into Oregon and Idaho. “If he has any problems,” said Ken Sr., “he can give me a call. I’ll call him every day, too, to make sure he’s alright.”♦♦♦♦♦Aug.10, 1987Griffey items, such as this one on Bob McCoy’s “Keeping Score” page, quickly became regulars in pretty much every issue. Ken Griffey Jr., the No. 1 pick in the June free-agent draft, on life with the Seattle Mariners’ farm club in Bellingham, Wash., in his first summer away from his Cincinnati home: “I kept thinking about things I’d be doing back at home, you know, running around the house with my brother, being at the pool, just things like that. I got real down … I didn’t know what to do. All I knew is I wanted to go back.”♦♦♦♦♦Sept. 7, 1987Of course the Mariners entry on the “Around the Minors” page is about Griffey. Bellingham outfielder Ken Griffey Jr., the first player selected in this summer’s draft, was batting .301 on August 25 and was tied for the Northwest League lead in home runs (13). “He started out very, very slowly,” manager Rick Sweet said. “Basically, he was overmatched. But now he’s one of the better hitters in the league.” Sweet predicted that Griffey, 17, would be in the majors by the time he is 21 or 22.♦♦♦♦♦Sept. 21, 1987In the era before social media, the “Voice of the Fan” letters page was a big deal. It was a way to have your opinion broadcast to the entire nation. This fan, Eddie Cannon Jr., of Owensboro, Ky., has an issue with the “phony” NCAA system. The more things change, eh? Eddie’s letter to TSN:I am tired of hearing everyone from congressmen to college coaches wanting to protect the amateur athlete. First of all, they don’t need to be protected from anyone but themselves. They are the ones who accept the money. They want the money. In baseball, the players who want the money sign a minor-league contract and play. The players who cheat are the ones using the college system. They want to refine their athletic skills for the pros and college is the only place for them to do so.It’s funny how everyone made such a big deal when Herschel Walker left Georgia after his junior year, but when Ken Griffey Jr. signed a contract out of high school no one was complaining that he was going to miss out on a college education. What’s really needed is an honest farm system for the NFL and NCAA, not the phony system that now exists in the colleges.♦♦♦♦♦March 21, 1988From Stan Isle’s notes column again. Seriously, TSN was Twitter before Twitter. Think of the RTs this anecdote would have generated.Outfielder Ken Griffey Jr., behind the wheel of the Mercedes he bought after receiving a reported $175,000 signing bonus from the Mariners last summer, drove all around Tempe, Ariz., trying to find the Seattle club’s spring training hotel. In exasperation, Griffey swung into a parking lot and used his auto phone to call Bob Porter, the Mariners’ public relations director. Griffey listened intently, jotted down Porter’s directions and started his engine. He drove about 100 feet before he looked up and realized he had called Porter from the lot at the Mariners’ hotel ♦♦♦♦♦April 25, 1988Senior was playing for the Braves to start the 1988 season, which meant the Braves team notes were a great place for this Junior tidbit:Ken Griffey Jr. had two homers in his first three games with San Bernardino, Seattle’s California League affiliate. His father had only two hits in his first 17 at-bats with the Braves. “I’ve got to get some of those bats Junior is using,” the father said. Griffey, who turned 38 during the first week of the season, still hopes to play at least one game in the majors at the same time as his son. ♦♦♦♦♦May 25, 1988Yep, the Griffey Jr. excitement was real, folks. Ken Griffey Jr. is so popular in San Bernardino (California) that a Ken Griffey Poster Night promotion May 6 was a sellout. On May 17, Griffey and two teammates addressed 2,500 sixth-graders in the “Safe at home, not out on drugs” program. ♦♦♦♦♦July 4, 1988Ugh. Bad news, in the “Around the Minors” page. Outfielder Ken Griffey Jr., the first player selected in last year’s draft, probably will miss the rest of the season because of a stress fracture in a vertebra. He was batting .338 and had 11 homers, 42 RBIs and 32 stolen bases for San Bernardino (California) when he injured himself diving for a ball June 9. ♦♦♦♦♦Aug. 8, 1988More bad news for the Griffey duo. For a couple of months now, pretty much every Braves team note talked about Senior’s struggles and the Braves’ attempts to trade him. Eventually he was released, promoting this note in Moss Klein’s “A.L. Beat” page. 
For Seinfeld fans … the Ken Phelps-for-Jay Buhner (and his rocket for an arm) trade might not have happened if the Yankees had just waited a couple of days to get Ken Griffey.We would have been robbed of a classic sitcom quote. pic.twitter.com/nQ5xvYkQZt
— Ryan Fagan (@ryanfagan) August 6, 2018♦♦♦♦♦Aug. 29, 1988He’s back! The injury wasn’t as bad as first thought. From the Around the Minors page.Ken Griffey Jr., in his first appearance since being sidelined for two months with a stress fracture in a vertebra, went 2 for 4, scored a run, stole a base and had one RBI as Vermont (Eastern) lost to Williamsport, 4-3. ♦♦♦♦♦March 6, 1989Neither Griffey had a great start to spring. In the Reds team note, it was mentioned that Senior was hit in the chin by a ball that glanced off a protective screen near first base. And then this, from the Mariners team note. Ken Griffey Jr. was a first-day casualty when a thrown ball hit his glove and then slammed into his right eye. The eye was swollen shut. ♦♦♦♦♦March 27, 1989Junior is still just 19, but it’s become obvious during the spring that his arrival in the majors will be sooner than later. A short stand-alone story written by Jim Street on Page 28 is headlined “A Father-Son ‘First’ For the Griffeys?” An excerpt:Ken Griffey Jr. is making a serious bid to become the youngest player in the major leagues this season. The Seattle Mariners’ 19-year-old center fielder, drafted No. 1 in the country in 1987 out of Moeller High School in Cincinnati, went to spring training as a non-roster invitee. But after 12 Cactus League games, he was batting .429 (15 for 35) with one home run, two triples, two doubles and a team-high 12 runs batted in. “He can run, he can hit, he can throw and he can make things happen,” said M’s pitching ace Mark Langston. “I don’t care if he’s 19 or whatever, this guy can make the club and help us.” ♦♦♦♦♦

April 10, 1989The Griffeys make the cover of The Sporting News. The cover story, written by Griffey regular Jim Street, is on Page 12. The headline screams “Clock Strikes Griffey Time.” An excerpt … Griffey rushed himself into the picture, and the outlook for the Mariners changed almost overnight. In his spring-training prospectus, (manager Jim) Lefebvre didn’t even mention Griffey’s name among those battling for outfield positions.By the time the Cactus League schedule began, Griffey’s status already was on the rise. And there was no stopping him. Lefebvre had decided to play the youngster almost every game. “I want to take a good look at him,” he said. “We’ll see how it goes.”It went better than anyone expected. Even Griffey. “I didn’t expect to be playing this well,” he said when he was midway through a 15-game hitting streak that was the longest in Mariners’ history for spring training.And when the Cactus League pitching got better, so did Griffey’s hitting. Skeptics were waiting for him to be overmatched, but he went through a three-week stretch in which he never went more than four at-bats without a hit.♦♦♦♦♦April 10, 1989Legendary Dayton sportswriter Hal McCoy was a TSN regular, and he crushed his story on what it was like for Ken Griffey, member of the famed Big Red Machine and now back with the Reds, to become Griffey Senior in the blink of an eye. An excerpt:As a Grapefruit League game was in progress at the Reds’ spring training facility in Plant City, Fla., Griffey and fellow outfielders Paul O’Neill, Eric Davis and Kal Daniels sweated throuhgh 50-yard wind sprints along the outfield warning track. O’Neill, Davis and Daniels completed their work, but Griffey plodded on, perspiration dripping off his chin in the 80-degree heat.When Griffey finished, Davis leaned against a bullpen chain link fence and asked Griffey, “Hey, ol’ man, need some air? If you do, I’ll go to the clubhouse and fetch some.”Griffey walked slowly to the clubhouse and equipment manager Bernie Stows greeted him with, “Hi, Senior.” Griffey feigned anger and Stowe said, “I could have called you senior citizen.”Cincinnati restaurateur Jeff Ruby, who was in the clubhouse, added his comments, saying, “It’s the Other Griffey.”The elder Griffey quickly corrected Ruby, saying, “I’m the Original Griffey.”♦♦♦♦♦May 29, 1989With all of 14 MLB games under his belt, Griffey Jr. rattled off a stretch of eight hits in eight consecutive at-bats (with a couple of walks mixed in), and he batted .625 in the final week of April, his first month in the bigs. That stretch was covered in a short article by Jim Street in the May 15 issue. So, yes, the hype jumped up a notch. Another Street short, titled “Griffey Bars Gobbled Up” told the story.SEATTLE — Demand for the Ken Griffey Jr. Milk Chocolate Bar far exceeds the supply and shows no signs of letting up. “It has gotten out of hand,” said Mike Cramer of Pacific Trading Cards Inc. of Edmonds, Wash., two days after the candy bars became available. “I had no idea the demand would be this phenomenal. We have more orders than we have bars being made.”MORE: 10 times Ken Griffey Jr. invaded pop culture in the ’90sThe 13-ounce candy bars resemble chocolate baseball cards, with wrappers showing the Seattle Mariners’ rookie center fielder at bat. The sale of the 95-cent bars began May 17, but some stores had been sold out before the candy even reached the shelves.“We had been taking phone orders for about two weeks before they actually were available,” one store manager said. “Out first shipments were sold out before they got here.”Cramer said his company was working two shifts and producing about 12,000 bars a day. He initially had planned to test market 2,500.“We weren’t ready for this,” he said. “I swear to God, we have to crank them out like Hershey bars.” 
He said only local orders were being filled and he was not sure if the bars would be available nationally.“I have a large order from Cincinnati (Griffey’s father plays for the Reds), but I don’t know when, or if, I will get them out,” Cramer said. “At some point we may say, ‘We’re done’ and shut it down.“We’ll produce them until we get tired. I’d say we’ll do this another three or four weeks. But the time we’re done with this, we’ll have had our fill of chocolate. The crew is dragging and I am dragging right along with them.”

Super Bowl Streaker Bet $50,000 on Himself but Bovada Won’t Pay Out

ดู WSOP บน PokerNews Twitch ทันที;  Chris Moneymaker ในความคิดเห็น
February 16, 2021 0 Comments


09:1116 FebOnline sportsbook Bovada likely won’t be paying out the largest supposedly winning wager on whether a streaker would disrupt the Super Bowl LV game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the site discovered the streaker was part of a group having placed a large bet on such an event occurring during the game.Yuri Andrade, the 31-year-old Florida man who briefly disrupted the game with his run in a pink leotard and black shorts, announced in an apperance on a Florida radio station Wild 94.1 talk show that he was part of a group that had bet $50,000 that a streaker would appear. Andrade told the show’s audience that his group had locked in the bet at +750, resulting in the high would-be payout.However, Bovada, a grey-market betting site offering services to many US states, quickly learned of Andrade’s admission. The site had already been aware of “suspicious activity” on the prop line, likely the overly large $50,000 wager. As a result, Bovada has already announced it will refund the wagers of all “no” bettors, while also screening for legitimacy all “yes” wagers made before officially grading them.The episode will likely do no publicity favors for Bovada, however, despite the site’s willingness to take a moderate financial hit. Bovada’s lines appear prominently throughout the US’s sports-betting world, on broadcasts and in live and online publications, and as a consequence the site remains under considerable pressure from the US’s growing licensed and regulated markets. At the very least, the event is likely to make Bovada reconsider offering prop bets of this nature, ones that have the potential to disrupt larger sporting events.“Our players have always trusted us to ensure the integrity of all props offered in our sportsbook,”Bovada stated. “We will continue to make sure that any publicity stunts or ill-intended behavior cannot adversely affect the outcome of a player’s wager.”It’s not the first time that streaking has figured into an online gambling story. Nearly 20 years ago, online casino site GoldenPalace.com garnered publicity by investing in all sorts of bizarre activities, including sponsoring serial streaker Mark Roberts’ dashes at events including Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004. Roberts sported a temporary GoldenPalace.com tattoo during his runs, which were just a small part of the site’s bizarre guerilla marketing campaigns.Did you like this article?Tweet

Read MoreMichigan added yet another online gaming option Monday as the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians announced the rollout of its platform.
Matt Wesaw, chairman of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians and CEO of the tribe’s gaming authority, speaks to the media on Aug. 20, 2019, before presenting a check for $127,500 to Beacon Children’s Hospital in South Bend, Ind. On Monday, the tribe announced it received approval from Michigan to launch iGaming and mobile sports betting in that state. (Image: PRNewswire)The Pokagon operates three Four Winds casinos in the southwestern part of Michigan’s lower peninsula. Pala Interactive LLC will serve as the tribe’s online platform provider.“Providing online access from a mobile phone, tablet or personal computer adds an entirely new dimension to the gaming and sports betting experience,” said Frank Freedman, COO of Four Winds Casinos in a statement.The Michigan Gaming Control Board said in a release the Pokagon becomes the 11th licensee to offer both online sports betting and casino gaming. There are a dozen licenses. However, the Lac Vieux Desert Tribe can only offering mobile sports betting at this point.Revenue from gaming operations will help fund education, economic development, and Pokagon needs, MGCB Executive Director Richard Kalm said in the statement.Tribal Leaders Had Considered ExpansionIn its statement, Pokagon Tribal Council Chairman and Pokagon Gaming Authority Matthew Wesaw said the tribe’s leadership had planned for the ability to offer online gaming for some time.COVID-19 has accelerated interest in providing online access and added convenience to customers across a variety of industries and gaming is no different,” he said.The MGCB license enables the Pokagon to offer its online gaming platform to anyone 21 or older physically in Michigan.Online gaming launched only within the last month in Michigan. Yet, with 12 online sports betting applications and 11 iGaming options, the state has already become one of the more lucrative markets in the US.In its first weekend of operation, Jan. 23-25, tracking data from GeoComply indicated that Michigan had more sports betting traffic than any other state offering legal betting. That included New Jersey, which is the largest sports betting market in the US by handle.Indiana Senate OKs Pokagon CompactThe Pokagon is also one step closer to offering Class III gaming in Indiana as well.Last week, the Indiana state Senate voted 36-11 to pass Senate Bill 356. The bill codifies the gaming compact the tribe secured with Indiana officials last month. It is now in the House for its consideration.The Pokagon operate a Class II Four Winds Casino in South Bend near the Michigan state line. The compact, the first in Indiana, enables the casino to offer banked table games, such as blackjack and roulette.It also clears the way for the casino to offer sports betting. That’s a product the Pokagon sought once sports betting became legal in Indiana in September 2019.One thing the bill does not allow is for the casino to offer mobile sports betting across the state. The bill states patrons can wager online only if they are at the casino when they make the wager.

It depends on a fixed number of reels, 6 for this case but on a random number of images for every one (2 to 7 during regular spins). This permits up to 117,649 different ways to win during your regular spins.After a combination forms, cascading reels will trigger, eliminating winning images and adding others in. This can prompt more wins and cascades.Get at least 4 wilds to show up in one spin and the Respins feature triggers.

Standard images include an unlikely picture of an Adventurer, a Cavewoman, three kinds of dinosaurs and the 10 to A Royals. It is a mix of prehistoric and modern at that point, which reminds me of Jurassic Park because you can’t get such a thing elsewhere.ConclusionTyrant King Megaways looks engaging, giving us some new features to try out, along with the ones we already knew and enjoyed. Top wins of 10,000x the stake are not extraordinary in a Megaways slot but rather they look great all things being equal.

Richard Downey explains the power of the US sports betting market

Lakers and Sixers เน้นโควต้า NBA ในวันพุธ
February 16, 2021 0 Comments


No one in the industry can underestimate the old fashioned values of building trust amongst customers. Richard Downey, Senior VP for Connections by the Specialist Works, understands that more than most. He sat down with Calvinayre.com’s Becky Liggero Fontana to share his insights on the U.S. sports betting market.Downey emphasized leveraging relationships from prior careers. “I was publisher of a magazine called Poker Player and I moved from there into the agency. I’ve been able to maintain an involvement in the gaming industry by having clients in the space,” Downey said.Downey is a firm believer that operators still require a that branding plays an integral part in building trust with customers in the highly competitive U.S. sports betting market. “In the gaming sector there is an element of credibility and trustworthiness that exists everywhere, but especially in the U.S. market. Getting access to online gaming in the U.S. market for the past period of time has not been completely legitimated. Gaming is being rebranded as mainstream entertainment and it’s really important that the brands that come through with it do a good job for the customers.”Downey pointed out that new operators have to consider the Vegas perceptions of gaming when it comes to brand marketing and alignment.“For a long time gaming has been synonymous with Las Vegas and therefore it’s completely logical that a lot of the Vegas gaming companies are using their brands to do that job of legitimization and credibility. If a gaming operator is trying to break into the mainstream market in the U.S. then I think having a credible brand behind you, either through brand recognition or through marketing is a good way of making people believe that you know that their gaming environment is a safe one,” he said.In the full interview, Downey gives advice for new operators for developing brand strategy in the U.S. sports betting market.

Wsop app

2 คู่มือเกมสล็อตแมชชีนสำหรับเดือนธันวาคม 2020
February 16, 2021 0 Comments


Hey guys I’m kinda new to poker so I’m still learning a lot every day. The wsop app made it easy to practice so I had fun. The first couple days I had the app, every night I was on a tear, I was getting power hand after powerhand. Straights to flushes and even once a straight flush. I still haven’t gotten a four of a kind or higher yet. My thing is after a few days I started to have a much harder time, I would have a straight after flop and get beaten by a flush from off the river. I understand with time and experience I can better read and predict that flush but after the last two days I’ve started to enjoy the app less and less. It was fun when everyone at the table had similar money, now even when I’m on lower tables it’s just filthy rich players who reraise almost anything starting from the flop all the way to the river. Sure poker is about bullying your opponents at times but it gets ridiculous when people have to fold pre flop even with solid high hards in fear I won’t even make a pair, just to find out I would’ve had a monster had I waited. Maybe I need to practice more or watch more videos to get the fundamentals (any recommendations would be appreciated). But the last two days have been the biggest beats I’ve ever had and it’s discouraging me from continuing to use the app. Sure the game is about skill and luck but it starts to piss me off when over the past two days I’ve gotten beaten on every power hand. I have a bicycle? Someone has high end straight or flush draw. Have 3 of a kind? Someone has four. Even when I had a fullhouse I would get beat. Maybe I need to watch a video on being able to better decipher the board to know when I have the nuts but I can’t find any handy videos. I know it sounds like a whole lotta complaining but it isn’t like it was multiple people beating me, it’s always the filthy rich player who just happens to get lucky off a river or flip card. And said person will continue to get hand after hand bullying the whole table. Sure it’s a online app it can’t be perfect randomization but at what point does this app become ludicrous? Like really what are the chances the same player will have the best high card or a straight flush or higher 6/10 hands or greater? Hell even when I’ve played my best I thought it was suspect, I was getting hand after hand of amazing sets but now it’s almost like I never win unless someone bluffed and I saw it or I use strategy to get others to think I have the better card. That being said I have made bad calls so not all of my loses can’t be deflected but someone of them feel almost rigged as if the game is favoring certain players on the table. I typically play smart and only make small calls and fold on high bets if I don’t have a solid set or at least a potential flush or straight going for me. Hell I’ve even noticed I play better in tournaments where people play a little bit more realistic And I’m more cautious of the sets I bet on but when it comes to outside of the tournament it seems like this game is just a troll, like it wants to piss me off on purpose. Maybe other users of the app have experienced more fair game play but for the past two days I’ve gotten bullied and it only makes me more mad when the rich guy bluffed and I would’ve had a 3 of a kind or four of a kind but I decided to not go all in on some random cards with no flush or straight potential, such as a 2 and a 9 off suite or pocket 3s. Feel free to roast me if I’m sounding stupid, but from my perspective this app is ridiculous at times.

In First Hint of WSOP 2021 Revival, WSOP Launches “Ultimate Poker Champion” Sweepstakes Promo

วีไอพีจะไม่ดึงการพนันออกจากแหล่งเสื่อมโทรม
February 16, 2021 0 Comments

In what is thought to be the first sign that Caesars is planning for a live World Series of Poker festival in 2021, the operator has put on a new free-to-enter sweepstakes promotion, the Ultimate Poker Champion Experience.

Running from February 15 through April 30, 2021, the contest offers anyone in the United States a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of the WSOP Main Event. One lucky person will not only get their entry into the Main Event paid in full, but they will also be treated to an elite experience during their stay. To enter, all you have to do is fill out the form.

With the coronavirus pandemic still causing mass disruption to live events and travel in the United States and around the world, the WSOP has yet to announce any schedule or plan for this year’s series. There is no information around the main event, for which the promotion is centered around.

The Normal Ramp Up to the WSOP

The WSOP is poker’s biggest event of the year. Tens of thousands of players descend on the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas for more than six weeks of poker. Action culminates in the $10,000 Main Event, the most prestigious tournament in the game. The winner is crowned the year’s champion, poker’s highest accolade.

However, last year, due to the coronavirus, the regular World Series of Poker 2020 was canceled for the first time in its 51-year history.

In its place was an online series held half in the United States—on the official WSOP Nevada and WSOP NJ online poker rooms—and half outside the US on global online poker room GGPoker.

In the winter, WSOP and GGPoker joined forces again for a hybrid online-live Main Event where players competed in tournaments online, then met for a live final table. The two winners of these met in a special heads-up match in Las Vegas.

Normally by now, organization and marketing are in full flow. Online satellites are underway on official WSOP sites as well as partners internationally. Schedules are revealed, packages are offered and promotions are spread.

However, nothing has yet been revealed for this year—understandable, given how no one knows how the next few months will unfold. That makes this promotion even more intriguing.

Sweepstakes Package Details

The winner of the sweepstakes promotion will win entry into the $10,000 buy-in 2021 WSOP Main Event.

As noted, normally this is a multi-day tournament held live in the Rio; last year, it was mostly online. What it will be this year is unknown. The implication, however, is that Caesars wants to run this live in Las Vegas, given the other parts of the prize package.

The winner and their guest will be flown to Las Vegas from anywhere in the continental United States. Once in the city, they will be treated to a dinner for two at a Celebrity Chef restaurant, a three night stay in a suite at Caesars Palace, a whisky and cigar night at the hotel’s Montecristo Cigar Bar, and $1,000 in spending money.

The total prize package, including all the extra goodies, is worth $14,000.

Hotel Stay at the Rio, a Hint of the WSOP Finally Moving?

Curiously, the stay is only for a three nights—which would normally not be long enough for a deep run of the WSOP Main Event. Last year, the tournament was spread over two weeks, with three Day 1s and two Day 2s then a Day 3, Day 4, and final table, with breaks gaps in-between.

Also of note, the hotel stay is in Caesars Palace, not the Rio. Whether this suggests an anticipated location move or not remains to be seen. The Rio was sold back in 2019 though Caesars agreed to manage the property for two years.

The 2020 event was scheduled to take place in the Rio, and the live Main event did go ahead in its convention center. However, no announcement has been made for the 2021 series—and with Caesars potentially coming to the end of its management contract, this could well be the first indication that WSOP plans to move it to another Caesars location in Las Vegas.

How to Enter the WSOP Ultimate Poker Champion Sweepstakes Promo

If you are a United States resident, just fill out this form. That’s it! You can read below for more details.

The contest is open to anyone over 21 years of age, with the exception of employees and family of Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Inc or Caesars Entertainment Services, LLC. The offer is only valid in the continental United States and void where prohibited.

Entries are open until midnight on April 30, 2021 and the winner will be randomly chosen on May 6, 2021 from all the entries received prior to the closing date.

In the event that the winner does not meet eligibility requirements, up to 5 alternate draws will be made to choose a winner. If no eligible winner is selected after the maximum 5 alternate draws, the prize will remain unawarded.

Prizes are non-transferable, and not subject to change except at the discretion of the contest Administrator. The Administrator reserves the right to substitute a prize of equal or greater value if the above prizes are not available for any reason, and winners are responsible for all taxes and fees which may be associated with receiving or using the prize. There is no cash equivalent for this prize.

The dates for the prize will be set once the Main Event is scheduled, but the trip must be taken before December 31, 2021. This gives the organizers a wide window to schedule the WSOP 2021 Main Event—whatever form it takes.
