Hot on the heels of the $25,000 H.O.R.S.E. final table, the second multi-game mixed event of the 2021 World Series of Poker kicks off today with Event #7: $1,500 Dealer’s Choice.

Mixed game players will be put to the test of potentially 20 different games, running the gamut from No-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha, H.O.R.S.E., and 8-game rotation games, to more exotic games like Big O, Badeucey, Badacey, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Regular, Pot-Limit Triple Draw, and more.

Players will begin the day with 25,000 chips and play 15 40-minute levels. There will be 15-minute breaks after every three levels, and registration will be open until the end of level nine (approximately 9:45 pm local time). Players who bust before then will have the option of one re-entry.

The 2019 event saw 470 entrants take a shot at mixed game glory, with Scott Clements coming out on top to claim $144,957 and the coveted gold bracelet.
