July 25, 2013
In June a record 160+ TDs from 26 countries attended Poker TDA Summit VI at the fabulous Venetian Las Vegas. These dedicated professionals volunteered time, money, and energy to make their votes count on matters of vital importance to our industry. Thanks to their efforts, the 2013 TDA Rules are in final review and scheduled for release the week of August 5th.
If you attended TDA Summit VI, we would greatly appreciate your sending in any comments or reflections on the event, along with any photos (and description of same) to: TDAGroup@PokerTDA.com.
Summit VI was made possible by our gracious hosts at the Venetian Las Vegas. Thanks are due everyone at the Venetian, especially to Kathy Raymond (Director of Poker Operations) and Tommy LaRosa (Tournament Director). Kathy and Tommy made sure the event ran like clockwork and contributed much to the debate during the proceedings.
The generous support of Genesis Gaming and the Global Poker Index (GPI) was also key to the success of Summit VI. Check out all the features of Genesis Bravo Poker and Bravo Poker Live and learn how these cutting-edge systems can help you attract and retain customers! The Global Poker Index is rapidly becoming one of the world’s most important player ranking systems and poker information portals. Visit the GPI website to learn more! Complete video archives of the Summit are available here courtesy of professional poker videographer Rob Perelman.
Lastly, a standing ovation is due our three new extraordinary TDA Board members: Jack Effel, Tab Duchateau, and Neil Johnson. Jack, Neil, and Tab bring years of global tournament experience to enrich the Association. Their leadership at Summit VI confirms the trust that over 2000 TDA members had in unanimously nominating them to the Board!
On behalf of the entire Association, thank you for your attendance at TDA Summit VI. We look forward to hearing from you soon, and will notify you when the 2013 TDA Rules are released.
