Tentative 2010 WSOP Schedule Released Removed

Seth Palansky Discusses Plans for 2010 WSOP

by , Nov 18, 2009 | 6:44 am

Posts on 2+2 earlier this morning mentioned a tentative 2010 WSOP schedule, but for those who take a look at it will note there’s still some work to be done.

For example, the first event on the list is dated May 10th, but it’s event #21 – $1,500 7 Card Stud. Also of note is that almost every tournament except the Main Event is a 2-day event. This doesn’t make much sense since most tournaments have been three-day events in recent years. Another notable change is that the “World Championship” of HORSE now has a $10,000 buy-in. There is however a $50,000 “Player’s Championship” on the schedule. So take the schedule with several grains of salt, and expect a corrected schedule in the very near future.

In related news, WSOP spokesman Seth Palansky talks with the Las Vegas Sun about what’s expected for next year’s WSOP. Among the newsworthy items, there will be no poker played on July 4, and expect more $1,000 buyin events (there’s six on the unofficial schedule).

UPDATE: The schedule has been taken offline for now.

    First event dated May 10th…that’s quite a bit earlier than the WSOP has started the last couple of years. Interesting, in a not-especially-interesting kinda way.

    First day is 5/28. Casino employees at noon.

    Can you say “The October Nine”, I knew you could.

  4. Seth

    Ignore all the information you are finding on the schedule, dates, etc. Just testing templates and layout stuff…boring tech stuff. We will be sure to alert everyone when the WSOP 2010 Schedule is official and ready to go.

    “bracelets are nice, but they’re giving away more than 50 a year. They’re pretty much demeaned at this point. You can win a $1,000 crapshoot and get a bracelet.” – Steve Zolotow

  7. Kevin Mathers

    Wasn’t that Zolotow quote from around the time when they announced they were getting rid of rebuys last year? They say they don’t want events where someone can “buy” a bracelet, then they have 40k and 50k events.

  8. Fifth Street Journal

    He was discussing buyin levels, like whether the $40K should return, with CardPlayer.
