LAS VEGAS–A possibly reliable source (a WSOP assistant tourney director) tells me that there are plans to lower the buy-ins to World Series of Poker Circuit main events to $5,000. The idea behind it is supposedly to draw more people while still maintianing a super-sizable prize pool; and to keep the $10k WSOP main event semi-unique and prestigious.

    That’s more of a fact, Circuit ME buyins are 5k, with the winner getting a 10k WSOP ME seat. It’s been reported on Card Player and many other sources.

    says: for the press release.

    Maybe I have the numbers wrong.
