Tweet Relief: World Series of Freezing?
Poker players at the World Series of Poker are used to facing their share of issues trying to win a bracelet. This summer one of the big ones seems to be the cold.
Las Vegas in the summer is often unbearably hot. Brutally hot days where it can be tough just to walk across the parking lot into the Rio but the temperature inside ranges between ice chest and meat locker.
Poker players, media members, fans, and even some poker staff have taken issue with the sub-70 standard and the situation is heating up.
Daniel Negreanu is the latest to take his complaints to Twitter about the conditions at the WSOP and his thoughts on correcting it.
He has even taken the time to bring a thermometer to his table to check the temperature. Even Nolan Dalla has something to say about the issue.
Here's what the Twittersphere has to say:
In 2013 every major casino should be able to control the temp. Rio fails miserably its constantly 68 degrees and someone should be fired— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) June 24, 2013
It's a constant complaint among poker customers and its simply never addressed adequately. It boils down to awful customer care and service.— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) June 24, 2013
I play in poker tournaments all over the globe and nowhere is worse than the WSOP events at Rio. Something's gotta give already geez.— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) June 24, 2013
I've joked about it, made light of it, but this is too much already. Who is responsible for the AC at the Rio? Lets have a talk with him!— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) June 24, 2013
I actually had to skip tournaments due to the cold. Picked up a cold.. Not fun— Kathy Liebert (@pokerkat) June 24, 2013
There's a reason why Canadians are winning all the bracelets: they're more acclimated to the weather. - @jesswelman on air conditioning— Bryan Devonshire (@devopoker) June 22, 2013
@RealKidPoker it was set to 72, but appears somewhat adjusted it. Perhaps they thought it was funny. It's been moved back to 72. Sorry guys.— Jack Effel (@WSOPTD) June 24, 2013
