2010 WSOP Schedule Released

WSOP, 2009-12-21, by Ozone

Harrah's recently released the schedule for the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP). Fifty-seven bracelets will be awarded at next year's series including one for the brand-new $50,000 buy-in "Player's Championship". This event will rotate between eight different poker variants and replaces the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event on the schedule.

In addition to the five H.O.R.S.E. variants, the Player's Championship will feature pot-limit Omaha, no-limit hold'em and 2-7 triple draw lowball. The final table of this event will be played entirely using no-limit hold'em rules.

The Player's Championship will mark the start of the series on May 28th. Also new to this year's schedule are six $1,000 buy-in no-limit hold'em events. Harrah's likely added these events after seeing the popularity of last year's "Stimulus Special" which drew over 6,000 participants.

Another interesting addition to the schedule is a $25,000 buy-in six-handed no-limit hold'em event that will start on June 30th.

The Main Event will feature four starting days the first of which will be held on Monday, July 5th. On July 17th, Main event participants will play down to a field of nine and return on November 6th to complete the tournament.
