During the 2008 World Series of Poker there were a lot of poker players who were using Twitter while playing in a tournament.
As of this year it will no longer be allowed to use Twitter or any other blogging tools for that matter as a new rule has been implemented this year.
This is the rule that was implemented to stop players from Twittering while sitting at the poker tables:
"all cell phones and other voice-enabled and 'ringing' electronic devices must be silenced during tournament play. A player who wants to use a cell phone must be at least one table length away from their assigned table or be subject to penalty."
According to rule number 88 players are however still allowed to use MP3 players such as iPods etc:
"players are allowed to use approved electronic devices (iPods, MP3 and other music players or noise reduction headsets during tournament play until they have reached the money in any tournament, so long as the approved electronic devices can not access the Internet, send or receive SMS text and are not equipped with any type of communication device."
Is it good or bad that the people behind WSOP banned the use of Twitter at this years WSOP? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
