Stop Time Protest

Every tournament always provides some drama at one point or another, and in the case of Event #4, it was no exception as nearly every player voiced their opinion on the matter at hand.

With the WSOP enforcing a hard stop time of ten levels throughout the entire WSOP excluding the Main Event, the Tournament Director on duty has just informed the players that regardless of when the final table is made, they will be forced to play out the full ten levels under WSOP rules.

Recently however many of the WSOP events have been altered in the schedule from three-day to four-day events, and Event #4 was one of them.

Although many of the players are upset of having to play through, it is our understanding that the change from the three-day to four-day format didn't occur until this event had started, so therefore when players signed up to participate in Event #4, they knew that it was originally a three-day event.

Allen Bari has asked for WSOP Tournament Director Jack Effel to be contacted to further explain the situation to the players, but we at PokerNews believe that their requests of pausing at a final nine will be in vain.
