Why aren't there more elephants in poker? I think Stars should have some Elephants-Only tournaments to attract a larger crowd. I've only seen a handful of elephants in my short poker career, so I think there's a lot of potential out there. Most people are waiting for a woman to win the WSOPME. I want to see an elephant win it. Thoughts?

It's about time Stars invited elephants to play. It's a completely unexplored market.

It's a nice idea but I would be concerned about one of those rogue elephants joining up.

You wouldn't want a rogue elephant going on tilt when other players started taunting them about their big ears.

So as long as pokerstars made sure any elephant applicants were properly vetted first, I would like to see them play.

This won't do much for the poker economy. These elephants are just playing for peanuts,
Pokerstars should rather concentrate their promotional efforts on tuna, as these are massive fish!

I think that's a good idea, but elephant poker hasn't been tested yet. I think we should see it as an investment to let elephants in now, because it's only a matter of time before the lion abdicates and an elephant will be the new king of the jungle, and if it plays poker, others will follow.

I hear that elephants don't need to use HUDs, because they can remember every hand they ever played.

If elephants were welcomed into the games, do you have any idea on ways to exploit them?

Just make sure you have the nuts. The goods. The best. The junk in the trunk.
