The 2006 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Schedule

The 2006 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Schedule 0001

The first full field event of the 2006 World Series of Poker is less than two weeks away. Even though the schedule has been announced for months, a few things have changed over the past couple months, and I am continually surprised at how many questions we get about the events coming up at the WSOP. All events are three days long, unless otherwise noted. All events start at noon, unless otherwise noted.

Second Chance Events

In case you haven't played enough poker after 40 consecutive days, the "second chance" events begin after all players have completed day two of the main event, and many of these events will have fields of maybe 500 or so players, and they are official bracelet events, so it is a nice way to have a shot at a bracelet. All second chance tournaments start at 10 am.
