The Suite Blog >> World Series of Poker Schedule Amended

February 20, 2008 - Considering the fact that the World Series of Poker won't go down for another several months, WSOP organizers have decided to revise the current tournament schedule. Albeit the the changes are minor, you can still bet that thousands of poker players and hopeful WSOP participants have already marked their calendars.

Another reason why the schedule change is newsworthy is because of the fact that it applies to the $50,000 World Champion H.O.R.S.E event. Widely considered to be one of the most elite poker tournaments in the World (largely because of the scope of poker games and skills that H.O.R.S.E tournaments require of players), the WSOP $50K H.O.R.S.E. tournament is sort of akin to the Super Bowl or Academy Awards.

Maybe I'm exaggerating just a bit. Being a football, movie and poker fan (okay, yes I'm exaggerating), the professional poker circuit still has a ways to go to reach the popularity of movies and football. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that the WSOP Championship is the premier poker tournament of the year.

As for the changes to the H.O.R.S.E. tournament, instead of taking place at 12 Noon on Sunday, June 22, the tourny will now go down on Wednesday, June 25 at 5 p.m. Something more of a primetime slot perhaps? Taking the Sunday Noon slot will now be the $2,500 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball contest. The full tournament will run from May 30 through July 16 this year, and will hand out fifty-five different bracelets. That's a lot of poker events. And so are the buy-ins (relatively speaking). They range from $1,000 to $50,000, with the main tournament buy-in at $10K.

So the question remains: Does this change affect any scheduled satellite tournaments at participating online poker rooms? Not that I know of. There are always some late satellites taking place, but you can bet that WSOP will lock the schedule very soon (if they haven't already) and online satellites will take place as usual. If your poker room doesn't have a WSOP satellite schedule, you are missing out my friend. There are plenty of good rooms out there that will cover your buy-in. Get to playing!
