He worked as a lobbyist on legislation that would permit religious headwear for active military personal in noncombat settings. He was assigned to consult the Major Baseball League during the labor strife in the earlys.

It was the first daily trade publication for the sports industry. Pollack's career with the NBA began when he was hired as a communications consultant for the NBA during its collective bargaining arrangement.

One of his central innovations was to create an immersive experience for viewers at home. His first responsibility with Harrah's was the World Series of Poker. Poker players' first impression of him centered on the Tournament of Champions ToC. The other players objected that three corporate exemptions were granted at the last moment. Pollack was heavily criticized, but addressed the criticism head on and ensured that a similar misstep would never occur.

One of his first actions as the commissioner was to work towards avoiding the criticism of the ToC. Pollack started meeting with a group of professional poker players in a monthly council. Pollack believed that the success of the WSOP was not determined based upon the number of participants every year, but rather upon the players' experiences.

The cash awards were distributed more evenly so that people who went out earlier earned more money, while those who made it to the final table won less. New decks were introduced every day at every table. The training of WSOP dealers was also heavily criticized in past tournaments. In an effort to forestall this criticism, the WSOP began intensive training for dealers as early as March for over dealers. Part of the reason for this additional training was to prevent a repeat of the "extra chips" that materialized during 's main event.

During the main event, the tournament finished with more chips than normal chip upgrading would have led to. Another effort to reduce that risk was the introduction of special chips exclusively for the main event.

The final two days of play were edited down to a two-hour show and broadcast on ESPN. The resulting finalists were given the nickname "The November Nine. The first tournament was held in London and hosted by London Clubs International at three casinos: Pollack is known for his aggressive marketing. Fans have the hope of their favorite team trading for the right player, drafting the right player, winning a game, winning the season, winning the world championship.

He responded, "That is not out of the realm of possibility. As long as they stick to the guidelines, players will be allowed to seek endorsement deals and advertise as they wish. Pollack believed that the strength in the WSOP lies in its tradition and legacy.

Pollack was generally received well by the players, although he did have dissenters. Daniel Negreanu was impressed with his first meeting with Pollack, noting that professional poker is "a unique situation, as with the NBA players are being paid, while the poker players actually put up their own money.

This can be seen most clearly through the extent of support he received when he announced his resignation as commissioner. On November 13, , Pollack announced on his Twitter feed that he was resigning as Commissioner. The World Series of Poker is bigger than ever before.
