WSOP “Town Meeting” to Discuss Playing Cards of the Future

by Lou on June 6, 2007

Today, the World Series of Poker and the United States Playing Card Company will host three “Town Hall” meetings – at 11 am, 1 pm, and 4 pm in the “Brasilia 5” ballroom.
USPC President and CEO Jason Lockwood and Brand Manager Rob Clendening will present their plans for the playing card of the future and will welcome player comments.

“I invite any poker player or any fan of poker to come and join us at one of our three meetings on Wednesday,” said Lockwood. “I know players want to have a say in the future of this great game and we value their input.” All media and poker players are invited to attend and provide feedback.

Whatever shape the playing card of the future takes, I hope they will test the cards out to make sure they are suitable for game situations before foisting them on the poker-playing public, as was done with the “poker-peek” cards. I expect they will. After all, if they can’t learn from the recent fiasco, they never will.
