2009 WSOP Sellout

Whomever wins the 2009 World Series of Poker main event will be guaranteed at least $8 million.  This news follows after Daly 1d resulted in a sell out and many hundreds being SHUT OUT. 

From Pokerati.com:

"About 500 players have been shut out of the main event - which interestingly enough makes the semi-arbitrary difference between being bigger or smaller than last year - and the suits are discussing how to handle the situation ... if anything beyond, ‘hey, sorry'."

The shut out resulted in fewer players than last year, 6,494, compared to 6,844 in 2008.

There were also accusations of favoritism and plenty of conflicting reports as well.

From @TaoPauly Twitter page:

"Commissioner Pollack will address the disgruntled players at the Poker Palooza at 2:30pm.

"Correction... Antonius is in the field according to ESPN. Lindgren at feature table. Eastgate at secondary table.

"Lots of conflicting reports of favoritism. Sully Erna got in now & players in the Diamond Registration line were told to return at 3pm."
