The WSOP* will run from May 27 to July 14. In addition to a $10 Million Guarantee First Prize of the Main Event, the other piece of big news is that the powers-that-be are doing their part to cultivate player interest in mixed games by offering a comprehensive series of mixed game events, with a "low-limit" flight ($1500 buy-in) paired with a "high-limit" flight ($10,000 buy-in) for a wide variety of non-Hold'em poker variants!
Given that this is the first year this mixed games schedule is being offered, the player fields are not expected to be huge... but this could be a bracelet hunter's dream!
Check out our mixed games live tournament calendar, which has been updated to include entries for these bracelet events, and will be updated in the future to include other mixed game tournaments to be offered this summer as the schedules from other venues become available.
