World Series of Poker Update
Jack Effel, Director of Poker Operations at Harrah's, has relinquished his duties as Director of the WSOP Circuit events to long-time tournament floor person Janice Sexton. A wise move if this means keeping Jack in the corporate office to oversee the Harrah's poker operations leading up to the big show in June. The increasing schedule of road events keep the Circuit Director away from Las Vegas and the day to day preparations for the Big Event coming this summer. Jack was doing double or triple duty lately with his titles of: Director of Poker Operations for Harrah's; Tournament Director for the WSOP Circuit events and WSOP Tournament Director 2007. This moves seems to be a recognition from Harrah's that the WSOP TD needs to be focused on the biggest event in poker. Good luck, Jack.
