WSOP Payouts revised....

The World Series of Poker has revised it's payout structure for the upcoming 2007 event. MOST players will now recieve a larger percentage of the payout, for finishing in the money, HOWEVER, those that finish nearer the top, will see LESS percentage than in the past.

Here is the example that the WSOP gave on their website:

"For example, the 2006 Main Event would have paid $22,266 for 873rd through 775th places, up from $14,605 or $15,512. Places 82 through 73 would have paid $126,173, up from $66,010. First place would have paid $10,028,715, down from $12 million, while second place would have been worth $5,442,769, compared with $6,105,900"

This is a double-edged sword issue. It will reward those making the money, but those that make the final table will recieve less than in the past. I'm sure top players will bitch about this one, as the structure has ALWAYS been top heavy.

There are also rumored to be extensive rule changes... I'll post those when they are announced on the WSOP site.....
