Get Yer Jackets Here…

by , Jul 6, 2008 | 6:03 pm

It was announced at the start of Day 1C that every player who made a final table in any of the events of the 2008 WSOP will receive a special jacket to commemorate the occasion. Not sure what players should do if they’re not here for the main event, but those who are still in Vegas can stop by a table set up in the hallway here at the Rio to get the jackets.

They’re pretty nice, actually. WSOP Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack wouldn’t exactly model it, as it doesn’t go well with a spiffy suit, but he held it up for me.

    In Nolan Dalla’s Day 1c email last night, he mentioned that the final table jackets were last issued in 2003. However, I am 95% certain that I remember seeing them when I covered my first WSOP in 2004. For whatever it’s worth. 🙂

    Oh, and my Main Event field size prediction of “Larger than 2007, Smaller than 2006” seems to have paid off. I wish I had enough confidence in my PokerNews article to set the over-under at 7,000 like I planned. Oh well. http://www.pokernews.com/news/2008/05/eight-questions-2008-wsop.htm

    That was my over/under — 7k.

    BTW, nice link BJ. What are you, a spammer?

    Nah … just backing up my prediction. Without a link showing proof, I could just say that I set the over-under at 6,840. 🙂
