Concerns about WSOP.com username privacy resolved
There is some concern about the use of WSOP usernames that may expose a player’s true identity. This can happen either from a live appearance at the final table at Rio for Event #64 or through the Player of the Year race. Any player whose username is made public knowledge through either scenario will be permitted to change his or her online alias once the contest is completed.
