2006 World Series of Poker News

Some interesting and I think, really GOOD news coing out of the World Series of Poker people from Harrah's ( Owners of the WSOP ).

There will be a H.O.R.S.E. event added to the 2006 WSOP, with a projected $50K buy-in! Thats pretty steep, and done so presumably to keep any but the best from competing in the event. (My personal opinion, is that you will see more of this type of Buy-In in the future, ESPECIALLY in the main event. It is getting to thei point were it is unmanagable, and the higher stake buy in will weed out some of that.)

ANYWAYS... this move is a direct response to player requests, and leads into the NEXT good move on Harrah's part! FORMATION OF A PLAYER COMMITTEE to advise the WSOP management. This is a one year assignment, and there are six professionals involved. Those pro's are: Former World Champions Chris "Jesus" Ferguson and Scotty Nguyen joining Jennifer Harman, Howard Lederer, Robert Williamson III and Daniel Negreanu. Thats a pretty powerful commitee!

I'm picking up a lot of hints and scuttlebut about the formation of some sort of players group.....
