Venue Leaders Section

Posted on October 11, 2014

Hello all! It's your friendly neighborhood webmaster speaking!

A few months ago I added a 'Venue Leaders' section to the site. The link is filed under 'More' in the main navigation.

Well, I just realized that this page was massively out of date (still showing result for June). So I wanted to take this opportunity to make sure that this section exits and that it is now up to date!

So, if you think you are in the running for a venue leader coin, check this page out and it will provide a quick summary of all venues.

WSOP Season 6 Standings Now Available!!!

Posted on October 9, 2014

ATTENTION PLAYERS!

To those of you loyal players who aim to reach the yearly tournament every season, the new standings have now been added to the top of the Standings menu!

We are now halfway through the season, so go take a look and see whare you stand! You have plenty of time to stop being such a slacker and make up the points needed to be qualified for the yearly tournament!!!

What's up is that your TD has not entered their points yet. Next time you go play, remind them that they need to put in their points!!! It literally takes about 5 minutes max to enter each game. They gotta stop being so lazy and do what they need to do.

Office, Sneaky Petes, and Acapulco points aren't updated. I have at least 3000 more ....what's up?

I need to know where you were at that is not how it's suppose to work sounds like your td did not give them to you moment you reached $5 or $10. Please let me know location you were at so I can fix the problem.

It seems that you are trying to promote increased spending with the host venues which is very good. However, waiting until after the break to hand out the bonus chips, for food/beverage purchases, may cause many to wait and place their orders until then because if they bust out before the break they do not receive the bonus chips for spending. Still others will not spend anything unless it appears they will make it to the break. You might want to consider giving out the chips when the player submits their tab to the TD during play. Again this will get folks spending and not waiting to spend.

It includes food as well as beverages!


reply posted on 2014-09-01 15:04:02

when you use the term "from the bar", does this mean beverages......or alcoholic beverages.......and/or does it include food?

Top 32 from each area... what about venue winners for the season? Do they receive anything? What about adding them to the 10k?
