Breaking News – Jeffrey Pollack Announced as New WSOP Commish, Player Advisory Council Formed, $50,000 H.O.R.S.E Added

Thanks to ESPN’s Poker Club for this one:

Jeffrey Pollack, has been announced as commisioner of the World Series of Poker.

Along with Pollack’s appointment, Chris ‚ÄúJesus‚Äù Ferguson, Scotty Nguyen, Jennifer Harman, Howard Lederer, Daniel Negreanu, and Robert Williamson III will form a player advisory council to work with Harrah‚Äôs executives and enhance the overall WSOP experience for players. This is clearly a move to silence some of the player criticism that the WSOP has turned into the World Series of Hold’em.

And on that note, a $50,000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E event has been added to the 2006 WSOP docket. This is the first time an event with a larger buy-in than the $10,000 Main Event will take place at the WSOP.
