WSOP Revises Payment Schedule

“We are increasing the return of players who can reach the money after hours or days of grueling competition,” said Howard Greenbaum, vice president of gaming at Hara Entertainment Inc. (NYSE: HET). “Our goal is to make sure the money is circulated among more people in the poker community.”

The final payoff schedule for each event depends on the number of final contestants, but you can see the difference between the actual payoff for the main event in 2006 and what was under the new payoff schedule. Overall, 846 players would have made much more money last year than they had collected in 2006, in some cases more than twice as much. But the top 27 players would have received a smaller amount.

For example, the 2006 main event would have paid $22,266 from No. 873 to No. 775 from $14,605 or $15,512. The 82nd to 73rd places would have paid $66,010 to $126,173. No. 1 would have paid $10,028,715, down from $12 million, and No. 2 would have been worth $5,442,769 compared to $6,105,900.

“We discussed the concept with the poker operations team and members of the WSOP Player Advisory Committee and agreed that the spread of wealth was the right thing to do,” Greenbaum said. “The new schedule is designed to increase rewards for players who have made money but are not in the final rankings.”

The new payment schedule is posted on and represents payment rates for different number of players for different games. 사설 토토사이트
