We have several exciting changes coming to WSOP.com NV and NJ that we wanted to share with you. Below is a list of some of the upcoming changes to look for.

WSOP.com Nevada

  • Addition of Super Turbo SnGs (HU up to $10, 6 + 9 handed up to $25)
  • SnG HU blind limits reduced from 10 minutes to 8 minutes
  • 9 Handed SnG blind limits reduced from 10 minutes to 8 minutes
  • SnG 6-Handed payouts changed from 70%-30% to 65%-35% for 1st and 2nd
  • $15K Sunday Guarantee being bumped to $20K Guaranteed

WSOP.com New Jersey

  • Addition of Super Turbo SnGs (HU up to $10, 6 + 9 handed up to $25)
  • SnG HU blind limits reduced from 10 minutes to 8 minutes
  • 9 Handed SnG blind limits reduced from 10 minutes to 8 minutes
  • SnG 6-Handed payouts changed from 70%-30% to 65%-35% for 1st and 2nd

Changes in NV should take effect Aug 1 (except for $15K -> $20K change which will happen on the 2nd). In NJ we anticipate the Super Turbos to go into effect on Aug 5th and other STT modifications to happen on Aug 11th, pending all regulatory approvals.

Additionally, although we don't have a date set for either NV or NJ yet, we will be removing all $2/$4 and $3/$6 NLH games and replacing them with $2.5/$5. Min buy-in 40BB and Max buy-in 100BB.

If you have any questions, please post them below in the comments.

IMHO each stake plays differently. Changing it might benefit the higher stakes players more. #NoChangePlease

I don't see how it helps the players. If the current stake I play in was raised, I might lose more then I do now.
