How Will the New Payout Strategy Affect the Game Play on the 7th Day of the 2015 WSOP Main Event Poker Game?

From 27 down to 9

Each player that makes it to the main event final table of the 2015 WSOP is guaranteed the minimum of $1 million; this will ensure that the final table bubble is pressure packed with excitement.

Ever since the establishment of the “November Nine” arrangement at the Poker Main Event of the 2008 World Series, the last day of playing during July — the one on which the competition plays down to the official final table — has always been an particularly stimulating day to track the action within the Amazon Room at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.

Within the last three years this particular day has been the 7th day of the event, as well as it was in 2008.  Although in 2009 thru 2011, it was the 8th day that was spectacular, pressure packed and the one that everyone followed. These days began with 27 players on all but one occurrence that was in 2011 when there were only 22 players that were gathered around three tables. This year the same will occur for the 27 players that remain out of the 6,420 players who entered into the 2015 WSOP Main Event.

However, there’s a big distinction looming today, when you compare it to the other final days in July in the November 9-era of the WSOP Main Event, one that will certainly have an effect on the tactic engaged by the enduring players and also potentially the speed of the game as well.

The payouts is what I am referring to, which this years appear to be a bit different up top thanks in part to the WSOP’s judgment to make certain that all 9 of the players who make the final table will receive at the minimum $1 million. The verdict to abandon the $10 million agreement for first (which was used last year) as well as to pay the top 1,000 players has also affected the payouts for the top 27.
