Summer 2024: Poker Beyond Las Vegas

The 55th edition of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) will run from May 28 to July 17, 2024, at the Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas on the Las Vegas strip. The series boasts a full schedule of 99 bracelet events, satellites, cash games, and the Deep Stack Series. The Main Event will begin on July 3, with four starting flights running until July 6, with the Main Event Final table scheduled for July 16 and 17. With online satellites available on ClubGG,, and GGPoker, there are plenty of opportunities to qualify outside of Las Vegas for the Main Event. Like years past, many Las Vegas properties are hosting series during the same time frame, complementing the WSOP, making Las Vegas the hub for poker this June and July.

For players not able to make the trip to Las Vegas this year or who want to experience a summer without the WSOP or on US soil, there are many series taking place during the same time. They may not be as rich as the WSOP, but they are a great series nonetheless.
