NYC transit strike means boom for poker

NEW YORK, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- It was no coincidence that record numbers of people played online Texas Hold'em poker on the same day New York City's transit system was shut down by a strike.

Marty Wallace, chief operating officer for DoylesRoom.com, told the Chicago Tribune the site usually has 3,000 to 3,500 people playing during business hours, but Tuesday, the count jumped as high as 6,500 players.

"At first we didn't know what was going on with the flood of players we were getting from New York City," he said.

BetOnSports.com's poker room also experienced a "30-35 percent increase in both free-play and real-money games, and it was a clear connection to the New York transit strike," said spokesman Kevin Smith.

Some 7 million people normally use New York buses and subways each weekday. The strike entered its second day on Wednesday.

WSOP Announces Foreign Satellites

One of the great innovations that Benny Binion brought to tournament poker, other than the World Series of Poker itself, was the opportunity for players to earn their way into the greatest event in poker through smaller buy in tournaments called satellites. Traditionally, they have been held in Las Vegas (first at the Horseshoe and now carried on to the Rio by Harrah's) around the time of the WSOP starting. Over the past few years, this has changed and will face another change starting this year as well.

Online satellites have been one of the most popular ways that the World Series has expanded the field. Those first online entries came in 2003, which brought over 800 players to the felt, a record at that time. In 2004, it tripled the field to over 2500 players and, in 2005, set the record at an astounding 5619 players. What hasn't been seen, though, is satellites in brick and mortar casinos that players can earn their way into the Main Event through.

The Tournament Poker Shift To No-Limit Hold 'Em

With the announcement last week of the schedule of events for the 2006 World Series of Poker, there has been a maelstrom of protest from pretty much everyone. Of the forty four events that make up the 2006 schedule, over half are No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em events, with games such as Omaha, Seven Card, Razz and others reduced to second class citizen status, battling for the other twenty or so slots. This hasn't set well with many players and has brought a tremendous amount of criticism upon Harrah's, who set the schedule for the 37th renewal of the World Series.
