The well-known Danish pro Theo Jorgensen announced yesterday that he would no longer participate in any event of the World Series of Poker Europe in Berlin. Jorgensen has used his official Facebook page to explain the reasons that led him to leave, even though he had paid the hotel for the duration of the event.
“A very short trip to Berlin. Decided to go home days before planned even though the hotel was paid.
Personally I feel the dude who made the decision to have WSOPE in Berlin should get fired.
Wire transfers are not possible so everyone has to travel with loads of cash. That alone should be enough to get the dude fired in my point of view.
Pros cant advertise so has to cover my Pokerstars patch and gets offered a “Spielbank Berlin” I can cover it with. They dont have a blank patch. Only option is a Spielbank Berlin patch. You would think that was a joke but nope.
Ohhh yeah and then they pumped up the rake now that the fishes were in town so the decided to rake double up in the small games (30€) of whats normal and then they were beeing nice to the highstakes cashgames where they only raked 50% more than normal. Atleast the water was free of charge then … no wait. A bottle of Evian was 10€.”
