Las Vegas is BACK, and the WSOP is here to prove it.
The flagship poker tournament had a wilted, online/live hybrid tournament in 2020 where a fraction of the usual players battled for a much smaller prize pool. This year, it's a return to business as usual with nine-handed tables and no occupancy limits.
The 2021 WSOP will run from September 30 to November 23 at the Rio.
“Make no mistake, the 2021 WSOP will be the real deal and we’re preparing for a full house. Throughout the storied history of the WSOP, this year will be particularly memorable and we’re preparing for a poker reunion all players can celebrate,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “We’re beyond thrilled to offer a complete schedule of can’t-miss events including all our flagships and the variety players deserve.”
Let's talk about the real draw of the WSOP- the $10,000 Main Event. This year's Main Event might be the biggest ever, as poker players are eager to get back to the felt. There will be four starting flights:
- Day 1A - Thursday, Nov. 4
- Day 1B -Friday, Nov. 5
- Day 1C- Saturday, Nov. 6
- Day 1D- Sunday, Nov. 7
Bracelet hunters have 88 events they can enter this year. Here are a few highlights:
- Oct. 5: $25,000 Heads Up No-Limit Hold’em Championship
- Oct. 27-28: $1,000 Seniors Doubles Up
- Nov. 19: $50,000 Pot-limit Omaha
