Poker Commentator Norman Chad Calls Out WSOP for Unfair Competition Practices
One of the most famous people in the field of commentary on poker events, Norman Chad, published a provocative message on his Twitter, in which he accused the organizers of the WSOP of unfair competition and attempts to sabotage the WPT World Championship.
Most of the commenters on this post did not share Chad's opinion and believed that he was too involved and was looking for an excuse for the WPT World Championship not being able to cover the stated guarantee of $40,000,000. But also in the comments there were people who consider it the least strange that the WSOP Paradise was announced on the same dates as the WPT festival.
Norman also made fun of the organizers of the WPT series in another tweet. According to his message, it can be understood that during the main tournaments in the halls of the Wynn casino it was too cold. And he proposed to slightly reduce the guaranteed prize fund and spend this money on heaters to create a more comfortable atmosphere for the players.
Whether the two series have really moved to a new level of competition, we will be able to see next year. However, it can definitely be said already that the WPT festival is demonstrating active development and is becoming a real contender for the World Series.
