Jeffrey Pollack Resigns as WSOP Commissioner

WSOP, 2009-11-13, by Ozone

After five years as commissioner of the World Series of Poker, Jeffrey Pollack announced today on his Twitter feed that he was resigning from his position with Harrah's. "It's bittersweet, but I'm leaving with just great memories and a really nice sense of it being a great run. More than anything else, I'm just appreciative of the opportunity to have been part of the WSOP," Pollack told the Associated Press.

Since taking the role of WSOP Commissioner in 2005, Pollack has helped grow the series in its new location at the Rio after moving away from Binion's Horseshoe. He has previously held positions with the NBA and NASCAR and is half-brothers with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman.

A spokesman for Harrah's said they have no intention at this time of replacing Pollack's role as Commissioner.
