World Series of Poker 2014 - Interviews?

The World Series of Poker
Las Vegas, 2014
July 4th, Independence Day

It's been an interesting year, so far, and the Main Event starts TOMORROW, July 5th, 2014.

The BigOne for OneDrop, won by Daniel Colman, after defeating Daniel Negreanu heads-up, declined interviews.  Excellent blogs and posts on both sides of this issue, and both sides are right.  Who is more right?  That is for YOU to decide.

Daniel Colman:

It's been 4 years since I first "live-tweeted" the Main Event, but with potential media jobs available at later events, I may do it again this year, so they know I'm experienced..


I will start blogging the link outposts again, as much will be going on, but only those links I think you would find interesting, and so you have them all in one place.

There supposedly will not be any livestreams since ESPN will be broadcasting, as far as I know at this point, but if any pop up, I will certainly post them here on my blog and Tweet them out.  Follow @PokerParadox if you want JUST my poker tweets, as a convenience.

Until next post, I wouldn't be a Wookie if i didn't say,
"MayThe4thBeWithYou!"
