2011 Event 7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold’em Championship

The 2011 World Series of Poker’s main tournament for pot-limit hold’em is Event 7. This $10,000-buyin event is considered the world championship of pot-limit hold’em. It begins on Friday, June 3, at 5 p.m. local time. As this field will be smaller than all of the no-limit events, it may be the best chance to get a hold’em bracelet for those familiar with the pot-limit variety of hold’em poker.
This is a four-day event, making a bit slower in structure than the lower-buyin events spread throughout the series (most of the $1500 events last 3 days even if they have over 3000 players).
