Poker tourney: Change is in the cards

Apr 10, 2001 11:05 AM

The 32nd Annual World Series of Poker at Binion’s will break from tradition in several ways this year.

The WSOP’s championship event, the Texas Hold’em (no limit with a $10,000 buy-in), will be worth $2 million to the winner, and will run five days in duration instead of four, beginning May 14.

Also, the final table will seat nine players instead of six. These are just some of the changes. For the complete story, plus a behind the scenes look at staging the tournament, see Casino Hot Topics World Series raises pot to $2 million.

Satellite tournaments will run April 16-19.
