2008 World Series of Poker Schedule Released

2008 World Series of Poker Schedule Released 0001

It seems as soon as the first Christmas is over you find yourself looking towards the next one. Poker has a very similar concept. As 2008 approaches we are already looking towards next years World Series of Poker as Harrah's have now released their full schedule for the event.

The biggest change to the schedule is clearly the addition of more 'Championship' $10,000 events, reminding us that poker is more than just No Limit Hold'em. The event starts with the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold'em Championship. A week later a $10,000 Mixed Event Championship begins, as well as a $10,000 Stud, Heads Up NLHE, Limit Hold'em, PLO and Omaha Hi/lo. We also see the welcome return of the $50,000 HORSE event and of course the $10,000 Main Event.

There are 55 events in total in this packed schedule, including eight $1,500 No Limit events, which traditionally attract the most entrants after the main event. This year there will be separate starting days for some of these events to accommodate demand. Registration for the next WSOP starts on the 28th of May, this soft opening is to avoid some of the hectic scenes seen this year with players trying to register for some of the bigger events.
