2007 WSOP to Begin on June 1; Not That They'll Be Accepting Online Qualifiers Even If You Wanted to Play

Wsop_5Earlier today Harrah's announced that the 2007 World Series of Poker will begin on June 1. The Main Event will start on July 17th.

The earlier start date is to accomodate ESPN, so its airing of poker's World Series (set for the summer) wouldn't take a ratings hit from baseball's World Series.

Says the WSOP's colorful Commish Jeffrey Pollack:

The 2006 World Series of Poker was the best yet, but 2007 will be even better....As a first step, weve moved the start date up and now were developing an expanded and well-rounded schedule of events for 2007 that will appeal to both professionals and amateurs.

However, all of this may not matter to you, since the 2007 likely won't be accepting online qualifiers anyway (here's comes Debbie Downer...)
