This just in …

Saturday was not the last HORSE mega-sat. Two more have been added. Just now. Suspect it’s a simple matter of WSOP supply meeting demand?

From the WSOP newswire …

Attention Poker Media & Players,

The Rio Poker Team has added 2 special H.O.R.S.E. Mega Satellites to the schedule.

Monday, June 23 & Tuesday, June 24 at 5:00 PM in the Satellite Room at the RIO Convention Center, poker enthusiasts can vie for a seat in the $50,000 WSOP H.O.R.S.E. that begins on Wednesday in the Amazon Room.

For just a $2,250 entry fee, poker players can win their way into the largest buy-in tournament in the country, the World Championship $50,000 H.O.R.S.E.

Details on tournament structure can be found here:

I’m really starting to think the main event is going to be pretty huge this year — bigger than last year, just shy of 2006. But perhaps HORSE might be smaller? If so, gives a pretty firm indication of life at the top of the poker pyramid these days. Either way, I think we were just sayin’ something about everybody wanting in … keyword, of course, being wanting, as opposed to actually buying.

    I would think that numbers may be a little low if they’re running additional satellites. Any idea on how many have registered so far?

    No, but we’ll see what we can find out. The people who know aren’t usually very forthcoming with forward-looking numbers … but enough people know … so …
