WSOP 2013 schedule

Caesars Interactive Entertainment have recently revealed the schedule for the 2013 World Series of Poker (WSOP). The biggest annual poker festival in the world will begin on the 29th of May at Rio Hotel and Casino in Vegas.

62 bracelet events have been scheduled for the 44th WSOP and as always, the crown of the series is the $10,000 buy-in WSOP Main Event, which starts on the 7th of July.

Event #6 is a $1,500 buy-in NL Hold’em with a single re-entry. This tournament is also called Millionaire Maker because thanks to a slightly altered payout structure the winner of event #6 can turn $1,500 into a cool million-dollar payday.

We will also see many tournaments which over the years have evolved into real WSOP trademarks. Considered to be one of the toughest tournaments in the world, the $50,000 Poker Players Championship will return, as will the Seniors Event and the scandalous Ladies Event.

The scandal around the Ladies Event is usually created by men, who refuse to stay away from the tournament so appropriately named Ladies Event. Each year the organizers are forced to explain that the law does not allow them to keep men away from women’s events. This year however, they have come up with a cool gimmick to keep the men away. The buy-in for the tournament is $10,000, but the ladies are given a discount of 90%, so for them the buy-in is $1,000, which has been buy-in price for many years now.

WSOP Tournament Director, Jack Effel, said:

Bring your bankroll, whatever it is, and come have the time of your life. We think this is the most diverse schedule we’ve ever had and we’ll be ready for an all-time turn-out at the 44th annual WSOP.

A new tournament that promises to become popular is the $1,111 buy-in Little One for ONE DROP event, which allows players to make unlimited re-buys during the first two days of the tournament. $111 from each buy-in will be donated to the ONE DROP foundation, which uses the money to provide clean water for people who need it the most.

The $10,000 Main Event will end the series and this year, the championship tournament will have three starting days with July 7th being the first one. On July 15th, the final table should be reached and the play will be paused for four months. The final nine will return to Las Vegas on November 4th to determine who will be crowned the new champion.

Last year, a total of 74,766 players turned up for the 61 bracelet events. The total prize pool of the tournaments was a staggering $222 million! This year, the organizers anticipate an even larger number of participants and to accommodate all the players, the number of poker tables was increased. In addition to bracelet events, satellite MTT and Sit & Go tournaments will be running parallel to the WSOP events.
