Min-cash Lesser Than The Buy-in At WSOP? Error Or Solution?


Often you must have seen in poker tournaments that the min-cash offered is always higher than the buy-in amount of that event. It is either marginally higher or in some cases even double or more. But have you come across a situation where the min-cash was lesser than the buy-in? It is very rare or rather impossible that this happens.

But such a rare incident recently happened at a tournament. And it wasn’t just any other tournament, it was a World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet event. Four-time WSOP bracelet winner Jeremy Ausmus took to Twitter to share this one-of-a-kind incident. “What’s up with these WSOP bracelet event payouts today. Buy-in 3,200 min-cash 2,300🤔” (sic) he wrote. 

Have a look at his tweet:

The tweet attracted mixed reactions from Twitter users. One user by the name Andrew Barber wrote, “It actually solves some bubble problems. I think it’s a clever solution.” To this Ausmus replied “Ya I’ve considered this also, it would really help bubbles.  But most players complained a lot when they paid more of field and smaller mincash.  Don’t think that’s what many people want.”

Some users lauded the move calling it a ‘great to avoid bubble’ and ‘nicely done.’

 

 

Some users also called it ‘old school’ and ‘horrible.’

One user also pointed out that paying 36 players out of 93 entries also sounded unbelievable. 

We wonder if it was an error or a deliberate move by WSOP to give the top finishers more value. Let us know what you think.
