by Lou on January 10, 2007


Harrah’s announced the schedule for the 38th 2007 World Series of Poker, which is set for June 1 through July 17, 2007, at the Rio Hotel & Casino – and televised by ESPN. There will be 55 bracelet events with buy-ins up to $50,000.

New additions to the schedule include a $2,500 HORSE event, a $5,000 Mixed Hold’Em Events, and a $5,000 Heads-up No-Limit Hold’Em World Championship.

In a press release issued today, Harrah’s noted that in addition to an expanded schedule, the 2007 World Series of Poker will offer players more space, with up to 300 tables available for tournament and live-game play. The additional tables will enable tournament officials to reduce the start days for the WSOP Main Event to three. Players entering the WSOP Main Event will be permitted to choose their start dates as long as seats are available on the selected dates.

The Rio will also host the annual Gaming Life Expo July 5-8 to showcase a broad array of gaming and poker products, memorabilia, books and clothing. In 2006, more than 100,000 people visited the Expo.
