$1 Million Buy-In Event @ WSOP?

#1
Starting in 2012...

"Within 24 hours of the announcement of the event... Laliberte was the first to commit and was quickly followed by Mirage Resorts CEO Bobby Baldwin.

Others that have publicly committed... are Treasure Island owner Phil Ruffin and a host of pro poker superstars including Doyle Brunson, Daniel Negreanu, Johnny Chan, Andy Beal, Patrik Antonius, Gus Hansen, Tony Guoga with many more likely to compete."

ESPN better (and I am 99% sure they will) show this in their WSOP coverage

LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this idea - should be awesome to watch/follow. I sense they'll get at least 20 and probably 30+ to do this one - especially the First Year. if they do this every year it might decline but first year will see plenty

This is nothing more than a take off of "High Stakes Poker", where guys bought in for a Million dollars. They all have sponsors, so this is not a big deal.

It's the only way they can have a game where an amateur doesn't win every tournment.

Just because they have a million dollar buy in doesn't maen they are the best players.

Nothing wrong with that...

Are they still doing that $50K Horse event? I believe it was the late Chip Reese who won the first year... ESPN did a good job covering it.

Hey, I've got it! 10 of us bring 100k to KR's garage and play. The winner gets the million to go with. Once our man gets there whatever he wins - he gets 50% and the other 9 of us split up the other 50%!
