Pot-Limit? How New Vegas Marijuana Laws Might Affect WSOP 2021

Dapatkan promo member baru Pengeluaran HK 2020 – 2021.

Las Vegas marijuana

Attention all ‘high’ rollers!

This year’s World Series of Poker may have its fair share of changes, including both vaccine and mask mandates, but another huge change is coming to the city this fall.

From October, new marijuana legislation will come into effect allowing the recreational use of cannabis in new consumption lounges. These lounges were given the green light back in June, and will go into effect from October 1.

Nevada Marijuana Law

Cannabis became legal for recreational use in January 2017, with licensed sales beginning later that year. Anyone over the age of 21 may buy one ounce of marijuana or 3.5 grams of concentrate at one time, the same amount an individual is legally allowed to possess at any given time, at state-licensed dispensaries.

However, with marijuana illegal under federal law, it wasn’t possible to consume marijuana products in public or in any of the city’s hotels.

However, that all changed earlier this year after Governor Steve Sisolak signed a bill allowing the operation of consumption lounges. These lounges will allow adults to purchase and consume cannabis products.

“Lounges create a space where cannabis products can be consumed legally,” said Layke Martin, executive director of the Nevada Dispensary Association. “We have many retailers that have been wanting to add lounges to their properties for a while.”

These alcohol-free venues will be able to obtain one of two types of marijuana business license, one which allows existing retail shops to add consumption lounges to the same property, and a second where lounges can be created for single-use products.

How WSOP 2021 May Be Affected

There is a certain overlap between poker players and weed usage, which was evident by the excitement from players such as Josh Arieh and Bryan Micon when recreational marijuana was legalized in Nevada.

However, before players heading to this year’s World Series of Poker get excited about lighting up at the Rio, the new law states that these cannabis consumption lounges must not be in or within 1,500 feet of a casino.

Cannabis products are also not permitted inside casinos and hotels, nor are they allowed to be consumed in hotel rooms.

Sheldon Adelson and Marijuana

Sheldon Adelson

Throughout his life, the late casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson donated millions of dollars trying to stop marijuana legalization. According to Forbes, Adelson spent nearly $6.4 million in 2016 trying to stop legalization in Massachusetts, Arizona, Florida and Nevada.

His attempts to curtail marijuana legislation had been dubbed a “passion project” by Las Vegas Sands Senior Vice President Andy Abboud.

The Washington Post reported that Adelson’s own son died from a drug overdose in 2005, with opioid treatment centres in both Israel and Las Vegas established by his charitable foundation.

However, there is no suggestion that the death of Adelson in January 2021 had anything to do with the passing of this new bill.

“I’ll always remember our friend’s mom asked us who we thought was going to win. There were about 50 players left in the TV coverage and Ivey and Farha were the popular answers. I said, ‘I don’t know, I’ve got a good feeling about that guy Moneymaker.’ She gave me a look at the time that I thought meant she thought I was stupid. I had no idea at the time that these shows were prerecorded and she already knew that he had gone on to win!”

Maria Shriver, Maria Ho, Lena Evans to Host Women’s Charity Poker Event October 1

Lena Evans

Former California First Lady Maria Shriver will host a charity poker tournament October 1 at Jamul Casino in San Diego with a 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event seat up for grabs. She’ll be joined by Poker League of Nations founder Lena Evans and poker great Maria Ho in helping to raise money for the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement (WAM).

Shriver, the founder of the charity, isn’t a poker player so she’ll stick to hosting duties for this event. Previously married to iconic actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, the philanthropist has become one of today’s most internationally recognized Alzheimer’s advocates. The mission of raising money for Alzheimer’s research is near and dear to her heart. Her father, Sargent Shriver, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, a disease that still has no cure, in 2003.

In a few weeks, she’ll join forces with the poker community to raise money for a great cause. Actually, two great causes. One being, and this is the main purpose of the evening, to benefit Shriver’s charity. The other to send someone to Las Vegas to compete in the prestigious WSOP Main Event.

Details on the Charity Poker Tournament

maria shriver charity poker

Jamul Casino, site of the RunGood Poker Series, will play host to the October 1 charity poker tournament. The buy-in for the event is $250 for those who register early online and $280 at the casino.

The winner receives a seat into the WSOP Main Event, which begins November 4, but there are some other valuable prizes up for grabs. Each final table participant will take home some Suited Poker Gear merchandise. Other prizes include a one-week stay in a beautiful Costa Rica home and private poker lessons from Phil Hellmuth, Chris Moneymaker, Antonio Esfandiari, Maria Ho, and Greg Raymer.

“A close relative of mine had Alzheimer’s for 14 years, and it was tough for all concerned,” Hellmuth told PokerNews. “It’s my pleasure to be a part of raising money to help eradicate this nasty disease. From a science perspective: it seems like we may be able to eradicate more diseases than anyone in my generation could have imagined. We just need money, we have the moxie!”

Phil Hellmuth

Daniel Negreanu’s “Slump” Officially Over, Poker HOF’er Wins Poker Masters $10K NLH

Jackpot hari ini Result Sidney 2020 – 2021.

daniel negreanu poker masters

Daniel Negreanu went eight years without winning a live poker tournament, a stat that is still hard to believe. After Sunday’s win in Poker Masters Event #5: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em for $178,200, he now has two victories since June. And he just might have an old rival — Doug Polk — to thank for the recent success.

On June 11, Polk posted a video on his YouTube channel about the length of time it had been since Negreanu won a poker tournament. One month later, “Kid Poker” scooped a $50,000 buy-in PokerGO Cup event for $700,000 and would eventually be crowned the overall series champion.

Fast forward exactly two months later to Sunday afternoon at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas, and the GGPoker ambassador is back in the winner’s circle. Negreanu beat out a field of 66 entrants to win his first ever Poker Masters event.

He earned 179 points for his second cash of the high roller series, giving him 281 overall, putting him atop the leaderboard in the race for the Purple Jacket. But there are still seven events remaining, so it’s still way too early for his fans to get too excited.

Polk’s video likely had no impact on Negreanu finally getting over the hump to win a couple of tournaments. But it’s still an odd coincidence either way.

2021 Poker Masters Event #5 Final Table Results

Place Player County Points Prize
1st Daniel Negreanu Canada 181 $178,200
2nd Nick Petrangelo United States 132 $133,000
3rd Vikenty Shegal United States 86 $66,000
4th Jake Daniels United States 66 $69,000
5th Jeffrey Trudeau United States 53 $52,800

Rough Hand Ends Petrangelo’s Run

During heads up play, with both players relatively close in chips — Negreanu slightly out in front — one pseudo-cooler hand propelled the Poker Hall of Famer to victory.

Nick Petrangelo raised on the button to 180,000 with {a-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and his opponent three-bet to 600,000 with {a-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} and the raise was called. The flop came out {q-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{j-Hearts} and Negreanu wasn’t about to play small ball. He bet out 725,000 and got a call. The turn was the {4-Hearts} and both players interestingly checked.

On the river, which was the {4-Spades}, Negreanu went big, betting out 1.8 million. Petrangelo made the call to find out the bad news and admitted the check on the turn was a tricky but strong play by his opponent. The hand left him with just 760,000, less than 10 big blinds.

Moments later, “DNegs” picked up {a-Spades}{a-Clubs} on the button and limped. Petrangelo took the bait and shoved all-in with {q-Spades}{10-Spades}. The board came out clean for Negreanu — {4-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{k-Clubs} — and that was all she wrote.

Negreanu, the champion, took home $178,200 for his impressive performance and the runner-up received $133,000. The PokerGO Studio also played host to Day 1 (of two) of Event #6: 10,000 8-Game. Registration was still open at the time of publishing but 30 players had entered.

Straight Flush on the River Keys Adam Hendrix to $10K PLO Poker Masters Title

Promo menarik pada undian Data SGP 2020 – 2021.

adam hendrix poker masters

Adam Hendrix won Poker Masters Event #3: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha for $186,300, beating out a field of 69 entrants. But he momentarily thought he lost a crucial all-in during heads-up play against Matthew Wantman before claiming victory.

The 2021 Poker Masters has now crowned three of 12 champions. Shannon Shorr won a blind all-in pot to ship the first title of the series on Wednesday. Sean Perry celebrated Rosh Hashana with a big win the following day.

No-limit hold’em was the game played during the first two tournaments at the Poker Masters. On Friday, the focus shifted over to, as Joey Ingram likes to say, the “great game of pot-limit Omaha.” Six players returned from Thursday’s Day 1 session to compete at the final table. Here’s a look at how it played out along with the series points accumulated:

2021 Poker Masters Event #3 Final Table Results

Place Player County Points Prize
1st Adam Hendrix United States 186 $186,300
2nd Matthew Wantman United States 138 $138,000
3rd Jake Daniels United States 90 $89,700
4th Brent Roberts United States 69 $69,000
5th Jake Schindler United States 55 $55,200
6th Chris Brewer United States 41 $41,400

Hand of the Series?

adam hendrix poker masters

Pot-limit Omaha, given that players are dealt two extra hole cards, brings out more monster hands than no-limit hold’em. But that doesn’t take away from the wildness of an all-in river card during heads-up play on Friday.

The scenario was this: Wantman had 5,475,000 in chips when the hand began and Hendrix had 3,150,000. The board ran out to the turn reading {10-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{j-Spades}. Both players had gotten all the money in the pot with the tournament on the line for Hendrix. The hands:

Wantman: {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Hendrix: {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

Both were chasing a flush, Wantman had two pair and also a gut shot straight draw to go with it (although his straight draw couldn’t win). The river turned over the {9-Hearts}, giving Wantman the ace-high flush. He briefly began celebrating while Hendrix dropped his head in disappointment. And then the both players realized that river card actually gave Hendrix a straight flush and he doubled into a huge chip lead.

Wantman would get some chips back over the next 15 minutes but could never catch back up. Hendrix, who surpassed the $2 million mark in live tournament cashes, earned $186,300 and his first Poker Masters title. The runner-up received $138,000 and now has $2.7 million in cashes during his career.

Event #4: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em also kicked off at the PokerGO Studio on Friday with 73 entrants. When Day 1 play concluded, only six remained with Brekstyn Schutten holding the chip lead. The final table on the PokerGO app will begin at 4 p.m. ET. Each remaining player is guaranteed at least $43,800 and the winner will take home $189,800.

Remember, Poker Masters will air daily through September 19, but is only available to PokerGO subscribers. If you’re not currently subscribed, you can get a monthly subscription for $14.99, a three-month plan for $29.99, and an annual subscription for $99.99.

Face Masks Will NOT Be Required at 2021 WSOP – But There Are Exceptions

Jackpot hari ini Result Sidney 2020 – 2021.

Amazon Room WSOP Rio

The WSOP answered one major question that’s been on the minds of poker fans the past week: will players be required to wear face masks now that vaccines are mandatory?

On Tuesday, the confusion was clarified with an update to the 2021 WSOP FAQs, which stated that players can take the masks off while seated at a poker table.

Last week, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak (D) announced a mask exception rule that permits fully vaccinated venues to operate without patrons wearing face masks. Consistent with Sisolak’s Directive 50 mandate, the no mask policy only applies to when players are seated at a poker table.

According to the FAQs, Players must still wear masks when:

  • walking around on break
  • being moved to another table
  • in the Rio hallways
  • any time they step away from their poker table for any reason while indoors

WSOP 2021 Vaccine Rule

Last week, the WSOP informed the poker community that all players are required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19. That caused an uproar among the anti-vax segment. Many poker fans, including high roller stars spoke out against the mandate and said they won’t be attending the 2021 World Series of Poker, which begins September 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The WSOP then updated the policy and also disclosed that dealers won’t be required to prove vaccination status, although Caesars Entertainment strongly encourages all employees to get vaccinated.

For those who are vaccinated, the best way to do that is to download the Clear Health Pass app. The verification process, which PokerNews teaches in a September 1 article, only takes about five minutes and doesn’t cost a penny.

As it stands, face masks remain required in all Nevada businesses. That includes restaurants, casinos, poker rooms, stores, and more. But Sisolak’s Directive 50 policy does make one exception, which includes the WSOP.

“This policy expansion gives an option for convention organizers to choose between requiring masks indoors for all attendees, regardless of vaccination status, or ensuring that all attendees are vaccinated, in which case fully-vaccinated attendees can remove their masks,” Directive 50 reads.
