The 2010 WSOP Starts Today at the RIO Las Vegas USA
Posted on May 28, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
Poker players from all over the world are arriving to Las Vegas as the 2010 World Series of Poker kick off today at famous Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino of Harrah’s. Last year, almost 61 000 players from 115 different countries competed in the largest poker tournaments and WSOP officials expect even greater attendance this year. “Pre-registration is already increased this year,” Said Tai Stewart, vice president of the WSOP.”We expect that the total turnout will be breaking all records from past years”. To accommodate such a huge field, the tournament officials said that the shared area has increased to 377 Tables. This year, players will compete for gold bracelets in 57 events. The $ 10,000 buy-in NL Hold’em Championship or simply this year’s Main Event WSOP is scheduled for July 5th and will run until July 17th when the final table of nine players will pick out itself.
The “nine finalists” will return in November to duel for the coveted title. The action starts today with the $500 Casino Employees no limit hold’em event and the $50,000 Poker Player’s Championship.
The Poker Player’s Championship replaced the old high-limit HORSE event, and is really a true test of all skills a poker player might have. The format includes eight different games: Limit Hold’em, Omaha Hi-Lo Split, Seven Card Razz, Seven Card Stud, Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Split, No Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha and 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball. The first of several $ 1,000 No Limit Hold’em events will take place tomorrow, Saturday and are expected to attract nearly 4000 participants. The $ 1,000 No Limit Hold’em events have become popular in the World Series events alongside the main event and therefore added several program this year.
Players will have the opportunity n ‘fight to a $1,000 No Limit event every weekend of the tournament. On June 27 the WSOP will present the World Series’ Tournament of Champions an equivalent all-star game. Overall 27 players will participate in the $ 1 million freeroll Tournament of Champions; amongst them three former winners of the Tournament of Champions: Annie Duke, Mike Matusow and Mike Sexton. The rest of the field is to be determined by public voting on the site of the World Series, at wsop.com. Until recently more than 300,000 votes were registered, with Phil Ivey taking unsurprisingly most. The vote is open until June 15, with 20 top votes to take seats for this event.
Finally the WSOP officials said they did not intend to change the venue of the World Series, at least for the coming year, despite rumors circulating in recent weeks about a possible sale of the Rio by Harrah’s Entertainment. The Caesars Palace, which is owned by Harrah’s had been mentioned as a possible future alternative location for the World Series.
