World Series of Poker, aka WSOP, has today announced a new daily event schedule for the months ahead, in what will be the 53rd series for one of the most prestigious poker tournaments, currently owned by Caesars Entertainment.
The famous poker series is moving to the Las Vegas strip for the very first time in its history and will be hosted at the current Bally’s premises, which will soon be revamped and rebranded as Horseshoe, along with Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.
Executives of WSOP have spoke about the exciting events to come this year in what will be a historic time for the longest running poker series.
Players are expected to be welcomed from all over the world to the famous Bally’s venue and according to reports, the schedule is ‘jam packed’ with first class events in what is expected to be the most anticipated series yet.
On the day that PokerStars announced the return of its European Poker Tour, WSOP has released its schedule for the coming months, including the Main Event – a $10k No-Limit Hold’em World Championship – which will kick off around the 4th July holiday period, commencing on Sunday 3rd July, whereby the deep-stack tournament will play through the Final Table on 15th and 16th July 2022.
Reportedly, this year’s World Series of Poker will feature a variety of high quality poker tournaments with prices ranging from $400 through to $250k and the opening weekend, aka The Housewarming, will feature a massive $5 million guaranteed prize pool and is expected to attract around 13k entrants.
