Well, the headline above says it all.
What do you do when your leading sponsors have been busted by the U.S. feds?
Obviously, the World Series of Poker officials have a problem.
The WSOP is on the search for new interested sponsors.
Current WSOP partners are longtime sponsor Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, and new sponsorships Dearfoam Slippers and GoDaddy.com.
The GoDaddy logo will appear on all televised WSOP tables this year.
GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons says their Internet loving fans are happy about the partnership, though there were some issues pertaining to specific Gaming Control Board rules and regulations.
No doubt, the usual host of big online poker site advertisements are not present this year.
Most of the focus now is on the action, though the issue of Internet poker advertising crossing over into the WSOP may come up again prior to the Main Event.
We hope the feds come to their senses and stop prosecuting online gambling sites.
