The World Series of Poker is set to unveil a world first at this year’s WSOP events in North Carolina.
Not only will it be the first time that a WSOP event has been held in North Carolina, but it will also be the first WSOP tournament held entirely on PokerPro automated tables.
The PokerPro table is about the same size as a traditional table, however there is no seat for the dealer. The hands are dealt electronically and the community cards are displayed on a large screen in the centre of the table.
Each player has a screen in front of them that displays their hole cards, their chips, and buttons that correspond to the actions a player may want to make throughout the course of a hand.
When the cards are initially dealt, they will appear face down on the players screen. When a player cups their hand over the screen the hole cards will be revealed, and when the player removes their hands from the screen the cards will again appear face down.
Players who have made their way into live poker via playing online will find these tables a breeze to operate. However there is still some resistance coming from traditional poker circles with fair play the biggest worry for older players.
Players on the PokerPro automated tables will have to get used to the fact that there are no chips to rake in after a good win. Also, players won’t be able to play with their chips during a hand. Although anyone who has heard the deafening rattle of thousands of poker chips being rattled around may welcome this.
While not having a dealer at a poker table may sound like sacrilege to some, it does have its benefits. First of all players shouldn’t worry about acting out of turn or putting the wrong amount of chips in the pot as all this is governed by the automated tables. All screens feature a ‘confirm’ button, meaning there is no excuse to accidently move all your chips in. Moreover, all side pots are calculated in seconds and evenly re-distributed. Also, in some casino’s it is customary to tip the dealer when you take a pot. That will be a thing of the past with the PokerPro automated tables.
Harrah’s Cherokee Casino will play host to the first WSOP tournament staged on automated tables. Entry to the tournament is $1075, with the winner receiving a seat to the 2011 WSOP Main Event plus $2000 spending money in addition to the cash prize.

Full Tilt Poker has already started its many World Series of Poker 2011 promotions and satellite tournaments. Read on to find out how you can win your seat in the Main Event!
Join Full Tilt Poker now and you can claim a 100% match bonus on your first deposit of up to $600.
Don’t want to pay much for your 2011 WSOP Main Event seat? Well, you could win a seat for as little as a buck in the $1 Main Event Seat promo. These are $1 satellite tournaments starting at 13:30 ET every Sunday until 26 June, and they will each award at least three $12,000 prize packages into the WSOP Main Event.

All of these tourneys will cost the winner just $1 + 10c for entry on regular Sunday, or $2 + 20c on the last Sunday of the month!
If the insanity of $1 tourneys is too much for you, then you can start your way on the step satellites for just $3.30 in the Steps to the Main Event. There are 7 steps all up, with the buy-in roughly tripling for each tournament up the ladder – unless you have won a ticket to a higher ranked tournament on the previous step. The Step 7 entry is $2,100 and the winner of this tourney gets a $12,000 Main Event prize package. You can start at any level, though obviously building your way up for the bottom gives you the best value.
