The $10,000 buy-in events along with the Main event, always carried out a significant role in the WSOP festivals. The number of entries to this prestigious poker event is not as big as at lower buy-in events, but the most exciting fact about WSOP is that you’ll get some of the most popular poker professionals in the world here.
In a press release, Jack Effelfter, the WSOP Vice President, said about the release of the schedule:
“The Championship Events are always among the most special offered at the WSOP each year. We are proud to be the only tournament series that spreads such an offering and have worked with some of the most distinguished players this off-season to ensure our schedule and the events themselves align well with where poker is in 2020.”
What Is new in WSOP 2020 $10,000 Buy-in Championship?
The most notable change of the schedule is the absence of the $10,000 no-limit hold’em heads-up event. Over the last few years, the event has typically been an 8-game format with no-limit hold’em and a HORSE rotation, pot-limit Omaha and 2-7 triple draw. But this year, the event will keep those tournaments in the mix and a no-limit 2-7 single draw will be added.
