Speelschema WSOP bekend! Grotere stack Main, meer spelers ITM!

Eindelijk is het volledige speelschema van de 47e World Series of Poker bekend! Er staan 69 braceletevents op het programma van 31 mei t/m 18 juli. Verder is een hoop veranderd wat betreft starttijden, startstack (Main Event met 50.000 in chips!), meer spelers in het geld en nog veel meer! We praten je helemaal bij in dit artikel!

We trappen af met de algemene veranderingen die de organisatie heeft doorgevoerd. Zo is het aantal betaalde plekken in toernooien opgevoerd van 10% van het aantal deelnemers naar 15%, dus veel meer spelers gaan dit jaar in de prijzen vallen (het Holland Casino voerde overigens onlangs een soortgelijke wijziging door). Door deze wijziging zal het geld eerder bereikt worden, vaak al op de eerste speeldag van een toernooi. Verder beginnen toernooien iets vroeger (11u en 15u) en hebben nu bijna alle events een startstack die vijf keer de buy-in is. Het Main Event begin je met 50.000 in chips, terwijl dat vorig jaar nog 30.000 was.

  • Revamping the Places Paid in events, to increase payouts to 15% of the field – up 50% from the previous 10% standard. (Majority of events)
  • In the Money Earlier – With payouts increasing to 15% of the field, we expect to reach the money earlier in events, including many on Day 1!
  • New Start Times – Check your start times closely. We have moved the majority of events to 11am and 3pm starts – up one hour from previous. But there are several 10am events still, so please review your events carefully.
  • Five Times Starting Chips – All $10,000 buy-in events this year will get 50,000 starting chips – including the Main Event – up 66% from previous years and now in line with all other events getting at least five times buy-in in chips.
  • Structure Tweaks – We have provided structure sheets for each event on the schedule page. Please review (and even download) as some events have been tweaked in an effort to aid events meeting scheduled duration. 

Verder valt op dat het Main Event niet meer het laatste toernooi is, maar dat de $1.111 Little One for One Drop van start gaat gedurende de Dagen 2 en Dag 3 van het Main Event. Het Main Event start op zaterdag 9 juli (1A), zondag 10 juli (1B) en maandag 11 juli (1C). Via Dag 2AB (12 juli) en 2C (13 juli) is de samensmelting van de resterende spelers op Dag 3 (14 juli). De laatste speeldag van het Main Event voor de November Nine is op maandag 18 juli. De november Nine is dit jaar van 30 oktober t/m 1 november (zondag – maandag – dinsdag).

“By paying 50% more entrants and reaching the money earlier, we anticipate the 2016 WSOP to be the most rewarding yet,” zei WSOP toernooidirecteur Jack Effel (foto rechts): “Our schedule this year really runs the gamut for all levels of poker enthusiasts, so we hope you will peruse the events and make your plans to join us this summer at the Rio.”

Opvallende afwezige is $1 miljoen Big One for One Drop. Deze staat niet op het schema met bracelet events, maar dat wil niet zeggen dat het toernooi niet wordt gehouden. “It will indeed take place in 2016 in grand fashion; however, it won’t be in Las Vegas as part of the summer schedule.  More details on the Big One for ONE DROP will be announced soon”, meldde het persbericht.
