News: The WSOP dates announced
The WSOPE and an online bracelet series have also been confirmed to take place either side of a reunion in Las Vegas from September.
No this wasn’t an April Fool’s joke, yesterday the World Series of Poker dates were confirmed.
The series returns to the Rio between September 30 to November 23.
The full schedule has not been announced but it begins with a charity event for healthcare workers, a $25,000 HORSE tournament and a $5 million guaranteed event called ‘The Reunion’.
The Main Event takes place between November 4 and November 17.
No further details about that festival yet, but two further festivals have been confirmed. An online WSOP festival has once again been scheduled for the summer, but it has not been confirmed if that will be open to international players at GGPoker again. Details will be released on April 15.
The World Series of Poker Europe also returns in Rozvadov at King’s Casino between November 18 and December 8. It is expected to feature 15 bracelet events including the €10,000 Main Event.
As expected, all of this is subject to change and to whatever the current COVID safety protocols are in place at the time. The world will be a long way forward with vaccinations by the time the first live bracelet event takes place but realistically there will still be travel restrictions and social distancing impacting aspects of the series this year.
Will the WSOP be able to host visitors from the rest of the world by the time it starts? Let us know in the comments:
