On Wednesday, the 2013 World Series of Poker kicked off at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas and yesterday we posted our very first update on Event #1 and #2. WSOP posted 33 things to know about the 44th Annual WSOP on its website the other day. We have narrowed it down to the 10 things that we consider to be the most important.
1. This year's WSOP runs from May 29th thru July 15th. The November Nine will play down to a new World Champion November 4th and 5th.
2. This year features 62 bracelet events, one more than offered last year. The bracelets are once again furnished by Jason of Beverly Hills.
Day 4 of EPT London will kick off in a few hours time and there are only 32 players remaining. The plan for Day 4 is to play down to 16 players, who tomorrow will continue the road leading up to the final table (Day 5).
Believe it or not but already a player has reached the Supernova status on PokerStars! The race to reach 100,000 VPP was between "AWice" and "MouldyOnions". The two registered for almost every single high-stakes hyper turbo sit-and-go when the clock ticked over to 2013, and it was a even race from start to finish.
It feels like it was yesterday that I wrote a similar news item, like this one, but for 2011. I guess it's true what they say, time flies when you are in good company, and if there's one thing us at the BankrollMob administration is, then it's being in good company, with thanks to our almost 500,000 members!

On behalf of the entire crew here at BRM headquarters, I would like to wish you all and your families a very Happy New Year - and be careful out there if you play with fireworks!
