Mixed event raises the bar for WSOP participants
In an attempt to make the 2008 WSOP that much more interesting, eight different $10k buy-in World Championship events have been added to the world's most famous poker bonanza. None should be more challenging than the mixed event that starts at 5 p.m. today.
Getting to the top of the mixed event will be tough. First, players need to have enough bank to bang in the $10k test of all-skills poker.
Second, they need to be confident they can beat top pro players in eight different variations of the game, including Triple-Draw 2-7 Lowball, Limit Hold'em, Omaha Eight-or-Better, Razz, Seven Card Stud, Stud Eight-or-Better, No-Limit Hold'em and Pot-Limit Omaha.
Third, they need the facility to seamlessly bounce between strategies because the game changes every eight hands.
It is the first time that the $10,000 World Championship Mixed Event will be held during the Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em
