WSOP 2015 Schedule Announced

The World Series of Poker 2015 schedule has been announced and while it doesn’t provide all the details yet, it is still giving a good outline towards what we can expect of the world’s most played and respected tournament series.

The tournament series will include events throughout seven weeks of play and start on May 27th and continue for 49 days until July 14th, where the main event final table has been found – Who will continue their play in November as part of the “November Nine” final table.

While most tournaments are still not announced, the WSOP organizers has provided some information about the schedule, including the fact that the $10,000 WSOP Main Event will once again have a $10,000,000 first prize and that they have created a $565 buy-in tournament with a massive $5,000,000 prize pool guaranteed.

“We believe the WSOP is uniquely able to deliver the big event with life-changing money for some and a life-experience for all,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “We are going to proudly stage the kinds of events which draw players from all around the world while also staying true to our heritage of contesting all variants of poker.”

“Load up the entire gang – the home game, the spouse, whomever you know that enjoys the game,” said Stewart.  “The Colossus is going to feature a historic prize pool at this buy-in level and it can only happen at the World Series of Poker.”
