    Will WSOP be cancelled?

    Some poker pro's Facebook was full of players betting on this. Not sure how they're posting up but I think the odds moved. Are any sportsbooks out there offering this bet?

    Has to be.

    Thousands flying in from all over the country and world and sitting arm to arm and swapping around between tables.

    I played a tourney last week with about 700 people and it felt uncomfortable thinking about how the virus could spread in that room.

    1000% this event is cancelled. There is actually no question about it.

    I'd say 100% it will be cancelled at this point. I believe a few guys initially got 25-1 and then later around 10-1 that it would be cancelled. Now it seems like a mortal lock.

    Seems pretty certain that given what else is being cancelled that this will be too.

    But least some of these folks are smart in betting on this - they are getting their gambling addiction satisfied ahead of time since they almost certainly won't be able to at the poker + other casino game tables in Vegas!

    Hopefully the super degenerates that are betting on it are picking that it will be cancelled. Otherwise when it is, they could lose their bet + also not have a chance to martingale to try to win it back at this summer!

    It's probably a good time to start playing some online poker again.

    For sure, but still not so easy/not a ton of great options from US unfortunately.

    Not that it matters to me personally - my days of playing extensive online poker are far behind me, just use SBR poker to get my poker fix! But yes, definitely will be interesting to see if that catches fire due to the circumstances and what the climate will look like once this whole mess is behind us (assuming that ever happens )

    definitely getting canceled and then RIO will be closed and go out of business. WSOP and Penn/Teller keep them afloat

    People are getting scared again bc rioting is not dominating the news and we can get back to COVID-19 scare tactics again.

    We were going to take my girlfriend’s son for his 21st mid-March when all this started.

    We talked about doing it later this summer but obvIously he/we wouldn’t get a good Vegas experience the way everything is now.

    Thinking maybe Christmas break??

    Everything so unpredictable hard to plan anything long-term.
