Bigger Stacks and Added Value featured in All 2019 WSOP Structures

Tags: 2019 WSOP, Allen Kessler, Seth Palansky.
Posted on Monday, March 04, 2019 by "T".

This year's World Series of Poker is the celebration of their 50th anniversary, and they have formulated a poker festival jam-packed with the usual favorites as well as many additions such as nine online bracelet events, more affordable buy-in tournaments, and there's even a Short Deck Championship.

Oh, and there's one more thing for this year's WSOP, they have added more value which means more chips!

Last week, the WSOP revealed on their site the structure sheet for all 89 events set for 2019, and it's noticeable that they kept their promise of increased value per event.

WSOP Vice President of Corporate Communications Seth Palansky said, "We are confident players will find the structures the best value they have ever seen at the WSOP. Jack Effel and his team wanted to make sure that these weren't smoke and mirror changes like a lot of places do. Jack made sure that all the changes resulted in deeper play at all stages of the tournament. This gives everyone more comfort in Day 1 of the tournament as well as room to play as the tournament progresses at key later stages."

Allen ‘Chainsaw' Kessler was asked by WSOP personnel regarding his opinion on the changes made for the 2019 WSOP and he called the structures "excellent" overall, commending them for "more chips and more play throughout". The hard-to-please tournament structure critic said, "Limit mixed players get last years' structures or better but have more starting chips, which makes late reg a much better value. The smaller no-limits are way more competitive this year with deeper starting stacks and more play throughout."

What makes 2019 WSOP different from the other years is there's more smaller no-limit events, which means lower-limit and recreational players can join more events this time. These smaller events can also be attractive to many seasoned pros who love a great bargain. Let's look at the starting stacks for each price point compared to last year.

Even though most of the events set for this year's WSOP have been improved for deeper play in response to popular demand, it is understandable that not everyone can spend time playing poker tournaments that go on for four days or more. WSOP seriously took note of this by adding more fast-structured events to cater to those in the player field searching for a gold bracelet the quick way.

Palansky said, "The Super Turbo Bounty events were real popular and we do have a segment of players who have shorter time to play poker, thus those folks will find several offerings that allow them to compete for a bracelet. The whole Deepstack bracelet series is another example of this too. These still offer tremendous value - better than anything else in the marketplace - but with the pace to complete in 2/3 days."

Indeed, the 2019 WSOP is set to attract a wide variety of poker players. Palansky said, "Like everything at the WSOP, we offer something for everyone and we are sure there are several events that everyone can find and enjoy and get a great experience competing in. There is no doubt that anyone who comes to Las Vegas this summer will find the best value for their buck and the biggest prize pools up for grabs at the 50th Annual World Series of Poker at the Rio."

Kessler even said, "To be honest, I can't see any mixed or no-limit player leaving the Rio this year."

It must be a fantastic experience to play in one of these tournaments and i envy everyone playing. A friend of mine went over there a few years ago and he has always said that it was the greatest experience of his life

And they are right about it. Not everyone can handle a tournament going on
for four days in a row. And its not about stamina.
Its mostly mental, being able to keep your head straight, after so many hours
of play, including breaks, interruptions, etc.

Bigger stacks and more value must be a good thing, to give everyone a big and better chance. Something was always going to be done t celebrate fifty years and this looks like it is it. Good luck to everyone who plays in the WSOP. I hope that one day I will be there with you to go head to head at those WSOP tables.

A 50-year anniversary it's worth celebrating as is normal. 50 years of history and an addition of 9 bracelet events is pretty good. It's hard to offer some extra prizes for this celebration but never do not say never. Last year the WSOP was successful if i remember well. This year i think it will be the same. Smile

fiftieth anniversary It is of course very cool ... and of course there are some changes ... and changes this year when online tournaments are included. And these are really good changes ... new opportunities for online players appear ... not everyone can afford myself playing offline for various reasons ... now the geography of poker is expanding

Of course, there are a lot of people who want to lose in such super tournaments .... and therefore get the opportunity to play in something like that, of course, at the dream level ....But still, this is a good chance for those people who for some reason cannot come to the live tournament .... And I think there are quite a lot of such people.

I think it is good situation to see that organizers listen to players wants and this year more options give to players, structure to have more chips when start tournament is very good, I like to play tournaments where many chips at start, also online bracelet events and for some players it is good to have super turbo events

its good that they give more chips for same value,but we will see would this be better or worser for players,especially for player with lower bankrolls!this years will show everything about it!if time blinds stay same and with more chips,it will be better for everybody!

Overall poker-economy is fluctuates too much compared to real life economy, still many more could only dream playing in one of these.

for lot of people who play poker regulary,especially on WSOP main event,this amount isnt big and they can afford every of this tournaments!I think that this will bring more players to this years WSOP and with more players prize pool will be bigger!
 Nightkid3/17/2019 1:57:29 PM GMT
