What’s New in the WSOP 2009?

Saturday, May 30th, 2009 | Tournaments | No Comments

Among the online poker rooms it’s business as usual, meaning that myriad WSOP-related promotions are popping up months ahead of the actual events, and there are literally hundreds of ways to qualify online.  Actually at least one poker site has offered WSOP packages since September last year, which is interesting considering that the official schedule was released little over a month ago.

Harrah’s has announced a handful of new additions and changes to the 2009 iteration of the World Series of Poker. The much debated delay of the Main Event final table that was introduced last year returns again, however.

New Events

There are 57 bracelet events in 2009 – two more than last year. One notable addition is a $1,000 No-limit Holdem “Stimulus Package” tournament, which is expected to entice a huge playing field and be the biggest event ever besides the Main Event. Another addition for 2009 only is a $40,000 No-Limit Holdem tournament to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the World Series of Poker.

Other than that the usual “World Championship” events in all different poker variations return. The No-Limit Holdem Main Event comes with several day 1’s and 2’s again, and will run between July 3 and 15.

No Re-Buys

Another highly noteworthy change this year is that there will be no re-buy events. The reason for this was that many participants felt that re-buy events provided too much of an advantage to professional players who have little to no limitation on the number of times they can re-enter the tournaments by re-buying.

Registration and Satellites

The buy-in to the Main Event is the usual $10,000, but there are plenty of other events for those on a tighter budget. 35 out of the 57 tournaments have a buy-in of $2,500 or less, so combined with the removal of re-buy tournaments this should be one of the most amateur-friendly WSOPs to date.

As usual there are also lots and lots of online satellites to all of the different events. Read more about the WSOP 2009 and specific online satellite offerings at learn-texas-hodem.com.
