Dates for WSOP's H.O.R.S.E Event Changed

The New Event is Moved Back in the Schedule


The dates for the $50,000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E event scheduled for this year's World Series of Poker have been changed.

Previously scheduled to begin July 25, the three-day H.O.R.S.E. tournament will now take place July 12-14. The two-day $5,000 buy-in 2-7 draw lowball tournament originally scheduled to begin July 12 will now be held July 25-26.

The events were switched to accommodate TV coverage.

The H.O.R.S.E event is the most expensive buy-in event ever offered by the WSOP. The mixed game was added after players complained that the series was dominated by no-limit hold'em. The game rotates between no-limit Texas hold'em, Omaha, razz, seven-card stud, and seven-card stud eight-or-better
