2009 WSOP Will Feature More Chips, Better Structure

WSOP, 2009-03-10, by Ozone

The 2009 WSOP will feature an unprecedented structure for its events. Tournament director Jack Effel announced that players will receive 3x the buy-in as a starting stack for all events. In recent years, the starting stack has been just 2x the buy-in, and not long ago, it simply matched the buy-in.

Additionally, levels have been added to most events to give more playing time deeper in the tournament. For example, $1,500 buy-in events will now have a 75-150 level and a 1,200-2,400 level.

The structure for the Main Event remains the same, but players will receive 30,000 starting chips this year.

To get in on the 2009 WSOP action, head over to 888 Poker where satellites to the Main Event are running around the clock.
