2009 WSOP Tournament Schedule

by AintLuck.com Poker Team

Hot off the presses, the World Series of Poker has just announced it’s full lineup for 2009 tournaments.  One major change sure to be the buzz of the poker world is the announcement that the Main Event, formerly a $10,000 buy in event will now be $40,000 to buy in.  It is the hopes of tournament directors and poker pros alike, that this change will bring in fewer players and allow a top professional to reclaim the top spot.

Number of Events at the 2009 WSOP

Also, there will be 57 events at the 2009 WSOP, up from last year’s 52 and all rebuy events have been removed from the lineup this time around.  There are now 10 different $10,000 buy in events, up from last year’s number of 8.  Also up from last year is the number of $2500 or less buyins, now totaling 39 up from last year’s 37.

Just as last year, the final table will again be held in November, from November 7th through the 10th and will conclude at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
