The day the @wsop comes out with its schedule is like Christmas morning for me.— Eric Crain (@EricCrain) February 14, 2013
Love what the @wsop did with the Ladies' event this year. Excellent creativity to keep out douche bag guys unless they wanna spend 10x buyin— Dan O'Brien (@DanOBrienPoker) February 14, 2013
Bravo @wsop addressing the issue of "men" playing ladies events by making it a $10k and giving ladies a $9k discount! Very clever!— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) February 14, 2013
Nevada explicitly carved out of its anti-discrimination law "differential pricing" based on gender. #WSOP smart to use it.— whodoes (@whodoesblog) February 14, 2013
I think I would actually pay $10K to get into the Senior's Event. #WSOP— Shane Schleger (@ShaneSchleger) February 14, 2013
Hahaha brilliant. WSOP made the ladies event a $10k buy-in, but Ladies get in for $1k. Cue the transgender related debacle.— Eric Baldwin (@basebaldy) February 14, 2013

Notable omissions from wsop 2013 schedule. Limit shootout gone. Only one stud high event. Plo/nl heads up gone. Horse 10k gone.— Allen Kessler (@AllenKessler) February 15, 2013
In the ten minutes I spent looking at @wsop schedule, I went from wanting to play a ton, to playing the fewest events I've ever played.— Joshua Arieh (@golferjosh) February 15, 2013
