William Hill Poker WHOP-ped by Massive Overlay
William Hill Poker was hit for a $23,225 overlay in the final of their William Hill Online Poker (WHOP) Championship on Saturday, after only 765 players entered the online poker site´s $50,000 guaranteed event.
Even though the event was delayed by a week to encourage more players to qualify for the valuable tournament, the entry fell a long way short of the 1429 players required for William Hill Poker to break even.
Bad News for Hills – Good News for Snuff
The overlay was excellent news for “Snuff666”, who conquered the event for an $11,000 payday. Had William Hill Poker not have been so generous with their offer, “Snuff666” would only have collected $5,888 for a tournament of this size. Other major beneficiaries in the event were second placed “JordiCZE” ($6,000 instead of $3,212) as well as “sniffdonkey” ($4,000 instead of $2,141) who finished third.
What Does This Mean for iPOPS?
With the forthcoming $1 million iPOPS Series about to start, William Hill Poker and the other skins on the iPoker network might be scratching their heads about how to encourage more players to get involved in the tournament series. The four tournament series, which starts in three weeks time and culminates with a Main Event final table played live in Prague, could also face a massive overlay if the disinterest in events such as these continues. Hills might be able to swallow a $23,225 overlay as a one-off, but will not be happy should the same scenario occur in a series with twenty times the value to players!
