Patrik Antonius attack on the World Series of Poker

Patrik Antonius, the Finnish Full Tilt Pro, doesn't think think much of World Series of Poker. He thinks that the WSOP bracelets are bullshit because there are 100 WSOP events every year and because everyone has one. The bracelets are shit quality, false and probably not worth more than $50, according to Patrik.

"The WSOP crew wants to rob the players. They don't really care about them and it's ridiculous. They have moved the tournament to the summer time in Las Vegas when no one wants to be there. They are just doing it so hotels and restaurants will be filled up. I personally think I will stop playing the WSOP in the future."

He continues...

"No one wants to be in Vegas during the summer, anywhere else than there. Its a period when people want to have vacation and be with their families, but instead one has to be in Vegas for a shitty bracelet", says Patrik Antonius in a video interview.

Ohh yer cause the great prize at the end is the bracelet...not the millions of $ to be won..yer can wait to win a bracelet.
57 events PA on your high horse, the events are split as in 2,3.4 etc NL games as more PPL are you not see that...or should they run 1 big game that lasts a year.
Put ya dummy in..

think he has a point that its not the right time to play poker and bracelet quality doesnt match upto the reputation of wsop , but still its wsop and its fame and money for the winner
 wesleyj16/09/2010 20:00:45 GMT
LOL...gotta love Patrik Antonius Big Smile
 uppps16/09/2010 21:56:08 GMT
yeah me to hes a sick human Smile
 kinogomes17/09/2010 08:41:58 GMT
I think he is right, look at him, he is millionaire, he doesnt need the money from WSOP, he only wants reputation cause the money he already have it. He lives in Monaco so close to some of the best beachs in the world. In Summer he could change different places everyweeks, cause he have loads of money for that.

Imagine, 1 week in Phucket, after another in Bangkok, 1 in Singapur, 1 in Bali, 1 in Sidney, 1 in saint tropez, 1 in ALLGARVE and the list goes on. He could do that, but instead of having nice summer trips he have to go to Vegas a very sick place where he cant rest only fuck the money.

Yes Patrick your so right, 1 week in Bali is worthing more 1 year in Vegas.
