What We See from Players Taking Issue with New Modiano Decks at WSOP

It’s normal when one or some players say “I don’t like my cards”. It just sounds like a rounder running bad and whining about it. However, when some top players said “I don’t like the cards. I will take issue with the decks”, it’s really an event.Now many players are taking issue with new Modiano decks at WSOP.

The WSOP brought in a new Modiano card manufacturer to supply decks for the 2015 WSOP. It’s said to be an Italian company, which makes 100 percent plastic playing cards constructed with its own proprietary platinum acetate. The company's website claims that they are superior to competitors like Copag and Fournier, even in "every aspect worthy of merit." However, many of players are taking issue with that claim after two weeks into the 2015 WSOP schedule.

They have pointed several problems with the cards.
First, the cards are too too thin and they are easily marked. It’s said that in the deuce-to-seven the other night, every three to four hands people were noticing marked cards, and they eventually just gave up, so they were essentially playing with marked cards.
Second, they manufactured the cards in a wrong way. The clubs and spades are similar in shape. A spade is usually pointy and has a rough edge. These ones are rounded, so it's very difficult to tell them apart, especially for those who don't have great eyesight. And it’s very difficult to distinguish between a king, queen and a jack.

As a matter of fact, we couldn’t tell which cards are better or superior just by one aspect. As for marked cards, both plastic cards and paper ones can be marked well with invisible marks. For this event, we can tell that marked cards are common used in poker games, even in the WSOP. People who have prepared for it can win or defend himself from losing, and those who do nothing can only give up or lose money.

A Guy Running Hot Through 18 Levels of Hyper Hold’em

This is a picture of two players in the WSOP of 2015. The young guy on the left has an appreciation for playing something a little different with the $1,000 Hyper turbo event at the WSOP, and he enjoyed a big run to build a stack big enough to make him one of the chip leaders on the money bubble. 

He came into the 2015 World Series of Poker on a wave of momentum, having won SCOOP Player of the Series after winning three High-level events, making four High-level final tables and five final tables overall. After missing in the first couple of events he played at the 2015 WSOP, Mercier built up one of the bigger stacks through the first 15 levels of the $1,000 Hyper Hold’em event. 

With levels of just 20 minutes, they were already nearing the money bubble when BLUFF caught up with Mercier on the third break of the day. In the picture, we can see that both the players are focusing on the cards. People may say that’s normal and so it is. 

But do you see something orange in the ear of the guy on the right? Is it possible that this guy wear a mini earpiece to listen info of the cards or the game? And about the young guy again, is he wearing infrared contact lenses to see some invisible marks on the marked cards? To be honest, I don’t know and you don’t know either. But nothing is impossible, right?
