WSOP Lammers

There seems to be some confusion about lammers.

A lammer is simply a seat in the WSOP. It is historically a small, clay token that is blue and black. In the old days it read: Binion’s WSOP $500 Seat.

Today a lot of venues pay out seats in certificates, cards, via the main cage or even by digital means online. Yet old timers like me still use the term lammer, which is completely synonymous with seat.

So when I say I was playing in a league which played for WSOP lammers, I was stating that the league provided 100k in free WSOP seats.
