New tournaments highlight 2010 World Series of Poker schedule

WSOPThere are quite a few changes in store for anyone checking out the 2010 WSOP schedule: The tournament series will still feature 57 tournaments, but there seems to be a new emphasis on lower buy-in, and larger buy-in events.

* The $50k HORSE tournament has been replaced with the $50k Players Championship –an 8-game mix featuring a final table of strictly No Limit Holdem—which will put the event with the largest buy-in back into ESPN’s TV schedule. The HORSE tournament is now one of the $10k Championship Events.

* A $25k 6-Max No Limit Holdem event has been added in an effort to cash in on the short-handed trend that is sweeping the high-stakes online poker games.

* Last year’s $1,000 tournament was such a success that the 2010 schedule boasts six of these events –one will be held each week for five weeks, and the final $1,000 tournament will be held on July 2nd—all of the $1k events will be No Limit Holdem.
