The WSOP has announced its 2017 schedule, which will run from May 30th to July 17th before taking a break until the November Nine return to the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas to decide its Main Event champion.
Each year, the world’s most popular tournament series grows in stature, and this year is no exception with a record 74 bracelet events being offered with buy-ins ranging from $333 to $111,111 for the High Roller for One Drop. Commenting on the format, WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart explained:
“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.. Plus, for the serious and high-stakes player, we remain committed to having the most diverse schedule of events of any tournament in the world.”
Included amongst the 8 new events to be featured at this year’s WSOP is the $365 “The Giant” No-Limit Hold’em; the $2,620 “The Marathon”; the $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty; as well as a $2,500 Mixed Big Bag Event. Meanwhile, a total of 3 online braceleted events will be offered to those players with accounts located in Nevada, with buy-ins options of $333, $1,000 and $3,333.
Starting February 1st, satellites will be available for both live and online events, with straightforward registrations opening in March.
The 2017 WSOP will also see a return of many of its most popular tournaments, such as the $565 Colossus, which this year features a guaranteed prize pool of $8 million; the $50,000 Players Championship; and the $888 Crazy Eights event which awards its ultimate winner an $888,888 first place prize.
Finally, most of the action will primarily be centred around the Pavilion, Brasilia, Miranda and Amazon rooms, with bracelet events beginning at 11am restarting the next day at 12 noon, and those with 3pm starts resuming at 2pm the following day. In addition, the casino’s registration windows will be accepting credit card payments of up to $10,000 compared to a maximum of $1,500 in 2016.
