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.

WSOP: No $40k NLH, No Champions Invitational in 2010

by , Sep 2, 2009 | 4:13 pm


“Next year, you’re not going to have a Champions Invitational. You’re not going to have a $40K for the 40th-annual event,” said [WSOP Communications Director Seth] Palansky. “Both events probably come back 10 years from now, when we’re celebrating 50 years. We announced them and intended them as one-off specials.”

First off, I’m not sure I really understand the meaning of “one-off”. Have heard it bandied around for the past year and have even used it myself, but the above quote doesn’t fit in with my definition.

Secondly, wasn’t there talk — perhaps on Gary Wise’s radio show? — about there being a $41k next year, $42k the year following that, $43k, $44k … basically an event growing each year in accordance with an attached Super Bowl number?

Scrapping the Champions Invitational also seems an interesting move. I won’t miss it, to be sure, but interesting that they’ve apparently just decided to nix it all together instead of giving it a second made-for-TV go and trying to scrap it.

With these being two of the four televised events this year, ESPN clearly had to have some say in the matter.
