E is Eight or better stud.
But get this. The buy in $50,000! Biggest in WSOP history.
You got to wonder if the winner of this event might truly be considered the World Champ, even if it isn't a main event. Looks like it might be the ticket for the old pros like Cloutier and Brunson and guys like Negreanu that are all around players.
At $50K per head they could have 1/5 the players of the main event but the same prize pool. And with fewer players they probably won't pay as deep so those who do finish in the money could do really well. I'll be interested to see who enters this tournament and whether online sites offer sattelites or more Horse tournaments.
