World Series of Poker News

by Luckbox

NASCAR, meet WSOP.

Starting this year, it sounds like you'll be able to wear 32 different patches during the World Series of Poker if your heart desires. Harrah's has significantly reduced the restrictions when it comes to personal advertising. Here's what you can and can't wear:

CAN (it's a short list)

  • Multiple logos

    CAN'T

  • Logos larger than 12 square inches
  • Logos for a DOT COM gaming site that conducts business with United States residents
  • Logos for habit-forming drugs, tobacco or handguns
  • Logos for any liquor product other than Milwaukee's Best Light or other Miller product
  • Logos for lotteries or illegal gaming businesses
  • Obscene, defamatory or libelous material
  • Logos for any pornographic products

    Also, any logo for a DOT NET website must contain a clear and visible DOT NET suffix that is at least the same size as the site name.

    I'm still trying to figure out if online gaming sites that accept U.S. customers will be permitted to advertise their DOT NET sites. That would, of course, apply to sites like PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and Ultimate Bet.

    Regarding third-party registrations, the rules state this:

    Third-party registrations for players are not permitted unless submitted by Official WSOP sponsors; Official WSOP promotions or product licensees, or civic, charitable, business, casino and other land-based entities officially licensed to conduct satellite tournaments for the 2007 WSOP. No third-party registrations will be accepted from online gaming sites conducting business with U.S. residents.

    Does this rule make it harder for PokerStars and Full Tilt to buy their players into the World Series of Poker? I guess we'll have to wait and see.
