Well during this Pandemic it's no secret that all industries have been suffering as discussed in the past blog. The issue at hand in the poker world is the fact that All casinos and event halls are closed so, Poker Tours are shut down also right? Wrong!
The W.S.O.P(World Series Of Poker) is having a online poker championship awarding 18 ring events with Millions up for grabs!
Schedule- 2020 Online WSOP Schedule
This would be a great way to make up for not being able to travel to the Championship in Las Vegas this summer however, only 3 of the 50 states in the U.S.A allow online poker (Cali, New Jersey, Nevada) since the Black Friday. The only hope for Pro, Semi-Pro, and Poker players as a whole to participate is to get with the PPA (Poker Players Alliance) and they will put you in touch with your State's governor to sign the petition already started in most states.
For those who may not know Black Friday was the fall of the online poker industry, when the guy called Boy Wonder, who set it all up, got snitched on and accused of stealing $100 Million, by the people who paid him to do it and then he Snitched as well and won that telling battle cause he was released hours early and indictments shortly after stung his accusers and the whole online Poker, world most especially the United States.

Recovering from Covid-19
The Music, Comedy, and Poker industries have really taken a hard hit from this Pandemic. With all three having events that regularly range in the thousands, not being able to attend these events have affected several professionals in these fields. According to Poker News.com and the P.N.Blog, the W.S.O.P , still hasn’t made an announcement or decided what will come of this years International Championship. Poker experts are predicting that touring could pick back up in the Fall however, nothing is Final or has been officially announced from the W.S.O.P. This is hitting American players the most being that since the Black Friday online Poker indictments in April 2010 only New Jersey, Nevada, and California have been the only states to amend and allow online poker.
The Comedy and Music Industries are all adapting and using social media as a form of self -promotion for their fanbase. Comedians have been interacting with fans more and are making more online viral videos. Musicians have been challenging their colleagues and doing different activities with their fans to show support during this Pandemic. With things opening back up with limitations , I will stay updated on this because I am anxious to start working on a strategy myself for my company and team. I will keep you updated on any info I can find. Live Nation announced it would start concerts in 2021 and they will be announcing new strategies and restrictions to their events. Thanks for your time
