The Poker Player's Championship
The Poker Player's Championship is a $50,000 buy-in event at the World Series of Poker (WSOP). Added in the 2010, it replaced the former $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. World Championship as the highest-stakes mixed-games event. Up until the 2012 World Series of Poker, it was the highest-buy-in poker tournament featured at the WSOP. Unlike the previous five-game rotation of H.O.R.S.E. and the eight-game rotation that followed, The Poker Player's Championship became a 10-game mix in 2015, containing limit 2–7 triple draw lowball, limit Texas hold'em, limit Omaha/8B, limit razz, limit seven-card stud, limit seven card stud/8B, no-limit Texas hold'em with antes, pot-limit Omaha, badugi, and 2–7 no-limit draw lowball. The final table was played out exclusively in no-limit Texas hold'em in 2010 and 2011 to appeal to television viewers. Since then the event has not televised and played out in a mixed-game format for its duration.
The winner of the tournament receives the Chip Reese trophy for one year.
