World Series of Poker
57 gold bracelets are up for grabs, as the 41st annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) tournament in Las Vegas gets ready to crown a new international poker champion. This year’s WSOP, held in the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino, will join poker players worldwide to compete for the holy grail of poker: the WSOP bracelet.
Events will take place within 51 days between May 27th and July 17th. The no frills poker events will all look forward to the final $10,000 no-limit Texas hold ‘em Main Event between November 6th November 9th. With nine final players, the “Nine in November” table is likely to hold several familiar faces such as xyz.
Apart from the headlining names is the addition of several new tournaments that are catching the eye of many. One of the more anticipated past events, the $50,000 Players Championships, has been replaced by the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. tournament. This new event will hold the same $50,000 buy-in and will add no-limit hold ‘em, pot-limit Omaha, and limit 2–7 triple draw to the five H.O.R.S.E. games. It will wrap up with a no-limit hold’em final table, and as in the Players Championship the famed Chip Reese Memorial Trophy will be awarded to the victor.
Complementing this top tier event will be a $25,000 six-handed no-limit Texas hold ‘em four day tournament which will take place in the final leg of the WSOP; it is promised to draw many well know players. The 2009 $40,000 no-limit hold ‘em tournament has been removed from the 2010 schedule, as a result the largest full-table no-limit hold ‘em event will take place this year.
All bracelet events are now open for play. Hurry up before the designated seats are sold or before the third level of play begins (roughly two hours after start time). Visit online through www.wsop.com. There is more than five months to go so register to the World Series of Poker today.
