WSOP Event #8: Mixed Championship

Posted by pmpoker on May 22, 2008

Poker Shrink notes this 10K buy-in event on the WSOP schedule.

I was looking over the schedules for all the tournaments in Las Vegas this summer and I came across an event I had overlooked when the World Series schedule first came out. On June 4th, World Championship Mixed Event appears on the WSOP schedule. A ten thousand dollar buy-in event, this one has missed a lot of media coverage, which it will definitely get when it is played over the three days (6/4-6/6). Unlike the Mixed Hold’em events which are No Limit and Limit Hold’em or the H.O.R.S.E. events made up of five events: Limit Hold’em, Omaha8, Razz, Stud and Stud8; the World Championship Mixed Event is made up of eight different poker games.

There will be two Mixed Hold’em tournaments this summer ($5,000 and $1,500) and three H.O.R.S.E. events ($3,000, $1,500 and $50,000) but only one $10,000 Mixed Event with all eight games.

Games in order for the Mixed Event will be:

Triple Draw Deuce to Seven Lowball
Limit Hold’em
Omaha 8 or better
Seven Card Stud
Stud 8 or better
No Limit Hold’em
Pot Limit Omaha

The game changes every eight hands. Levels are 60 minutes. There are three different blind structures for each level to accomodate the different games.

Basically, it’s HORSE + Triple draw + NLHE + PLO. Sounds interesting.

  3. Hey, it’s a year since you posted. No review for this year’s World Series?

  4. Daniel Negreanu is truly my favorite poker player. I just adore how he is capable of revealing the other gamers playing cards 😀 It is so hilarious to observe the faces of his opponents, when he tells them their precise hand.

  5. The Stubborn three. Why can’t Pa get the budget passed? Come on
