34 $5,000.00 H.O.R.S.E
35 $5,000.00 Limit Hold'em
36 $10,000.00 No Limit Hold'em Main Event
The schedule consists of the following:

10 NLH
6 LH
4 PLH
3 Stud
3 Stud 8
4 Omaha 8
3 PLO
3 HORSE
1 Razz
2 Draw
2 special
2 heads up

There may be one event that you are curious about, the heads up events. Here is what I propose:

A $25,000 buy in no limit hold'em heads up tournament for bracelet winners ONLY. It would likely be a three day event, playing two matches the first day, two matches the second day, and two matches on the final day (based on a 64 player field). If it were a 128 player field, 3 matches would be played on day two.

On that same very day, we'd hold another heads up no limit hold'em tournament with a $5000 buy in. In this event, ONLY those who have NOT won a WSOP bracelet may enter!

Obviously because of the buy in the structure for the $25,000 event should have more play, so here is what I propose:

$5000 Heads Up: 60 minute levels 5000 in chips
50-100
100-200
150-300
200-400
300-600

Getting to level five would be a marathon match. If you were to play for four hours and still have no winner, obviously the blinds would now be a major factor but the thing has to end sometime!

$25,000 Heads Up: 25,000 in chips 60 minute levels
100-200
150-300
200-400
300-600
400-800
500-1000
600-1200
800-1600
1000-2000

If a match were to be a marathon, reaching level 9, the blinds would surely come into play and end it then since the average stack would have just 12.5 big bets by then. Level 9 would only come into play in the most extreme cases IMO.

Also of note, there are NO duplicate events and there shouldn't be. With this schedule, being the "2006 $2000 NLH champion" will be more meaningful since there aren't four others just like you! There is not one good reason to have more than one of the exact same event.

Anyway, that's basically what I've been up to after finishing 36th in the pot limit hold'em today. I'll be doing a video blog later and talking about some of my ideas. You can also discuss them in the forums where I frequent on a regular basis.
