The WSOP Champions Wall
Downtown at Binion's there is a wall with the pictures of the World Series of Poker Main Event Champions on it. I have some news about that wall and a great story about it too.
First, the news. They have moved the wall. OK, they didn't really move the wall but they did move the pictures. Binions is undergoing a major facelift; they are trying to bring the Grand Old Dame back from some seedier days. Part of this renovation was opening a brand new sports book right in the poker room and since you cannot have cell phones in a sports book, they installed two little walls to block the view from the poker tables into the sports books. Now what do you do with a big blank wall in the most famous poker Poker room in the world?
Yep, you move the Wall of Champions to it. So now a lot more folks are getting up close and personal with all of the WSOP Champs from Johnny Moss to Joe Hachem. No, there will not be a Jamie Gold photo going up anytime soon. The 2006 Champ was the first winner of the coveted bracelet to win this title somewhere other than Binions and there are no plans to add any more photos to the wall or at least not until the owner of the WSOP and the owner of Binions are at some point in the future the same once again.
