Las Vegas was affected by earthquake

WSOP 2019 earthquake​The other day, the game was stopped in all the WSOP 2019 tournaments due to an earthquake. Over the past two days, California has been shaken twice. This time, the seismic events of magnitude 7.1 on the Richter scale hit even Las Vegas, which is part of the neighboring state of Nevada.

While dealer was slowly dealing cards to the players at the table, the whole room suddenly began to shake. Chandeliers and lamps began to swing, and some poker players started leaving the room right during the game.

Such an event caused panic among people and the tournament officials decided to stop the game for dinner break. American actress and a girlfriend of Phil Laak - Jennifer Tilly who also took part in the tournament during the earthquake, reported about it on her Twitter page:

The first earthquake occured a couple of days prior to the second one. Poker professional Faraz Jaka managed to photograph one of the tables in the "game room" where Phil Ivey played. The picture shows that this table got broken:
