Steve Morrow, former World Series Of Poker (WSOP) Tournament Director and PokerStars' first Poker Room Manager, has re-opened his poker-themed online auction site, ThePokerAttic.com. The site has been re-opened with a single item up for auction - Poker Attic, LLC, a registered Delaware LLC.
— Steve Morrow, a former World Series Of Poker (WSOP) Tournament Director and PokerStars' first Poker Room Manager, has once again re-opened his poker-themed online auction site, ThePokerAttic.com. The auction site was originally phase one of the Poker Attic Project. Future plans included an online poker site and a social media platform.
The auction site has been re-opened with a single item up for auction - Poker Attic, LLC, a registered Delaware LLC. The proposed sale of Poker Attic, LLC, includes the following:
1) ThePokerAttic.com, the auction site. This domain name could continue to be used as an online auction site, a memorabilia auction/retail site, a poker school, or as any type of lead-generating website.
2) PokerAttic.com, the planned online poker site. The appeal of this name for an online poker site is self evident.
3) PokerAttic.net, the planned social media site. This domain could also be used as a play-money site to generate new players for the real-money site.
The auction itself is mostly symbolic, the software needs updating and may not function perfectly. Any purchase agreement will be handled through escrow. All auction and/or business inquiries should be sent to Steve Morrow at admin @ thepokerattic.com or pokerattic @ gmail.com.
About Poker Attic, LLC
Poker Attic is a Delaware LLC currently consisting of ThePokerAttic.com, the poker-themed online auction site, PokerAttic.com, the future online poker site, and PokerAttic.net, the future social media platform.
The Poker Attic Project was birthed in early 2006, just months before President George W Bush was forced to sign the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIGEA) into law. The UIGEA ended the promise of the Poker Attic Project before it got off the ground.
Now, with the pending addition of Pennsylvania to the list of states offering legal online poker, the already shared liquidity pools of Delaware, New Jersey, and Nevada, and the proposed legislation in several other states, the future of legal online poker in the US looks bright at last.
The Poker Attic Project is once again viable for a visionary with the desire, energy, and financial resources to enter the world of online poker.
About Steve Morrow:
As a Poker Tournament Director, Morrow left his mark. At the 1997 'Queen's Classic' at the 4 Queens in Las Vegas, Morrow introduced one of the very first flattened payout schedules, reducing the standard 40% 1st place payout to 27.5% - 30% and paying more total tables. The change was met with considerable opposition by many top players, but was eventually adopted by most if not all major tournaments.
Only weeks later, in response, the WSOP adjusted their payout schedules in the same direction.
At that same tournament Morrow also made it abundantly clear that his stated intention to end dealer and player abuse by rogue wild west players was not just lip service. When Morrow had a former WSOP Main Event Champion permanently barred for physical dealer abuse, he again met with opposition, but the penalty was upheld, and the end of tolerated abuse was then inevitable.
At the 2nd Rio Carnivale of Poker in 1999, Morrow directed the first $ Million tournament ever held outside of the WSOP, and twice directed the largest ever $500 buy-in poker tournament.
In February of 2002, PokerStars contracted Morrow to be their first poker room manager. Morrow had already been hired to Co-Direct the 2002 World Series Of Poker. As PokerStars' poker room manager, Morrow directed the World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) in 2002 and 2003.
This is believed to be the only instance of any person directing the largest land-based poker tournament as well as the largest online poker tournament.
In 19 months, Steve Morrow managed PokerStars from a near-startup to the 2nd-largest site in the industry. Morrow personally developed PokerStars' customer support from an outsourced embarrassment to widely acknowledged best-in-industry status.
