WSOB Waiting game

Posted

This is the week. Many players are anxiously eyeing the telephone this week hoping for a phone call from GSN’s World Series of Blackjack. The 2006 season of the TV show is set to start filming in less than two weeks, and there are still seats to be filled.

While official numbers haven’t been released by GSN, it appears that of the 40 player seats in the televised event, only 20 to 30 of them have been filled by satellite qualifiers. That leaves between 10 and 20 seats to be assigned by GSN. To that end, many players have been submitting their tournament credentials to the producers, hoping for a freeroll and a shot at the $500,000 first place prize.

After submitting the initial information, many players were asked to provide a short video of themselves. In the last few days, some potential participants have gotten follow-up phone calls asking additional questions. I expect the decisions to be made by the end of this week.

That phone call is worth a cool $25,000 in expected value. Ring, ring.
