2011 WSOP Schedule Released

by Lou on January 25, 2011

The 2011 World Series of Poker schedule has been released and is available at http://www.wsop.com/tournaments/.

Fifty-eight events comprise this year’s WSOP, with Event No. 58, a $10,000 buy-in, thirteen-day main event, set for July 7.

Eight other, $10,000 buy-in championship events are also on tap during the WSOP.

Event No. 55 is the Poker Player’s Championship, a $50,000 buy-in event that will begin July 2 and run for five days.  Event No. 2, which has tended to be a unique high buy-in event each year, is in keeping with tradition. This year the second event is a $25,000 buy-in, heads-up, no-limit hold’em tournament that’s limited to 256 players.

This year’s WSOP contains loads of $1,000 and $1,500 buy-in events will be likely to fill the Rio with players looking to turn a reasonably priced tournament into a major payday.  These events are also likely to drain the card rooms in California of players during each weekend of the WSOP and create a feeding frenzy of players in Las Vegas.  It will benefit or not only the Rio, but every casino with a poker room and tournament schedule that covers Memorial Day to mid-July.
