WSOP 2021: All You Need to Know

After a one-year hiatus due to COVID-19 pandemic, WSOP 2021 is back in Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas! It was announced on April 1 that series will begin on September 30 and play will conclude on November 23, instead of the usual summer series as we’ve been used so far.

Schedule has been released on Tuesday, June 15 with 88 gold brecelets events with $10,000 Main Event running from November 4 through November 17 with four starting days. You can check the full schedule at the bottom of this article or download it here (pdf) on your computer/mobile.

GGNetwork (Betkings, GGPoker, Natural8, 2bet4win) already confirmed Main Event satellites for international players. WSOP.com is running satellites for Main Event until June 30.

Opening weekend of 2021 WSOP will include a special charity event to benefit frontline health workers, a $25,000 H.O.R.S.E. and a $5 million GTD No-Limit Hold’em event “The Reunion” with $500 buy-in. Each Friday and Saturday the series will host one flagship event including “Millionair Maker”, “Monster Stack”, “Colossus” and more. There will be more freezout tournaments this year with every popular buy-in level from $500 to $5,000.

$50,000 Poker Players’ Championship will be a nine-game mix once again and there will be a special Poker Hall of Fame Bounty event, where all living members of Poker Hall of Fame are invited to freeroll. This event will be open to all players. Each participating Hall of Famer will have a bounty corresponding to the year they were inducted into poker’s most exclusive club. 

For the first time in two decades, a network other than ESPN will be the home of the World Series of Poker. CBS announced that they had reached a multi-year deal with PokerGO for the exclusive WSOP TV rights. The network will broadcast 15 hours of WSOP Main Event and additional 36 hours of other bracelet events.

If you’re worried about the announcing team breaking up, don’t be.
