World Series Of Poker Release 2020 Tournament Schedule

The World Series of Poker today announced its Championship tournaments to be played this summer in the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

It seems there are a few headlines to be enjoyed in the festival dates flurry. Two in particular are the introduction of a new variant, No Limit Hold’em 2-7 Single Draw, into the lucrative and popular $50,000-entry Poker Players Championship.

Whether that will have a huge effect on a field that prides itself on thriving in mixed games is a matter that will only be played out in June, but watching what happens when the cards are in the air for that event will be interesting.

Elsewhere, the $10,000 Heads-Up Championship Game is one conspicuous omission. Fondly enjoyed by many fans, playes attendance in recent years hasn’t been spectacular and it seems the WSOP has shelved it –at least for now.

The 2020 World Series of Poker has not changed the buy-ins for the events, which remained at $10,000 apart from the Poker Players Championship ($50,000), with 17 separate Championship events announced. Overall, its is known there are 32 of the events scheduled to take place in the summertime at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. The Las Vegas poker festival, popular all over the world, is going into its 51st season, and a year of golden anniversary.

What should be quite important is the possibility that players participating in the $10,000-entry WSOP Main Event, the world’s largest live poker tournament, may well be hoping the Rio WiFi holds while in practise, with the $10,000-entry WSOP online event taking place on July 2nd.

WSOP vice president Jack Effel told excited fans about his Series expectations in a statement.

“The Championship Events are always among the most special offered at the WSOP each year. We are proud to be the only tournament series who spreads such an offering and have worked with some of the games most distinguished players this off-season to ensure our schedule and the events themselves align well with where poker is in 2020.”

As well as the traditional Player of the Year race, this year will also see a leaderboard of the Year’s’ Championship Events Only,’ one for the top rollers to be selected for the bragging rights. For over 187,000 entries last year seeing the 90 WSOP events that took place in Las Vegas (or online) raise not much less than $300 million in prize money, it is expected that the 2020 WSOP will be bigger than ever and will run from May 26th to July 15th.
