from Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun, The B.C. Lottery Corp. is paying Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo’s $10,000 entry fee into next week’s World Series of Poker main event in Las Vegas….
As part of that contract, the lottery corporation confirmed Thursday that Luongo represents its Playnow.com poker and casino games website at a number of gaming events, including the World Series of Poker main event….
The final table is normally played in early November — with the final table players commonly referred to as the November Nine — but to avoid a conflict with the U.S. presidential election this year’s final table is scheduled for Oct. 28. The final two players will go head to head on Oct. 30.
No word on what Luongo would do if he happened to make it to that final table as it will be played during the NHL regular season.
