All the events featured in the 48th annual WSOP program have been announced on http://www.wsop.com/tournaments/. The tournament, which will be held between May 30 – July 17 at the Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, promises unprecedented diversity of games and large prize pools.
The highlight of the upcoming WSOP are the 74 gold bracelet events which will accept buy-ins ranging from $333 to $111,111. What is more, players will enjoy 8 entirely new events, among which a $10,000 tag team no-limit hold’em, a $333 WSOP.com online no-limit hold’em with a $333,333 guaranteed prize pool, and a $10,000 pot-limit Omaha eight-or-better championship.
Just like last year, the majority of events are scheduled to start at 11:00AM and 3:00PM. An important change concerns the approval of credit cards as a legitimate form of payment at live registration windows in 2017.
In WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart’s words, “This 2017 schedule reflects our continuing goal to broaden poker’s appeal and encourage first-timers and recreational players to come experience the WSOP for themselves. With the new $365 buy-in Giant anchoring Friday nights, alongside a tent pole event awarding millions every weekend, we believe we have the offering to be well worth the trip.”
