Table Of Contents
Poker players already knew the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) would return to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas later this year after a 26-month absence, but details on the schedule remained unknown for months.
The WSOP 2021 dates had already been confirmed, with the Series running from September 30 – November 23, but now poker players can start to get excited with the release of the official 2021 WSOP schedule.
The schedule features 88 gold bracelet events with buy-ins ranging from $400 to $250,000. Online and in-person registration for events open in August, but here are a few highlights:
- a $500 buy-in, $5,000,000 GTD “The Reunion” on Opening Weekend
- a $25K Heads-Up Championship
- a $50K PLO event
- a $250,000 Super High Roller, the largest non-charity event buy-in in WSOP history
- and a special Poker Hall of Fame Bounty tournament
“Make no mistake, the 2021 WSOP will be the real deal and we’re preparing for a full house. Throughout the storied history of the WSOP, this year will be particularly memorable and we’re preparing for a poker reunion all players can celebrate,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “We’re beyond thrilled to offer a complete schedule of can’t-miss events including all our flagships and the variety players deserve.”
“We could not be more excited to welcome everyone back to Las Vegas and the Rio,” said WSOP Vice President and Tournament Director, Jack Effel. “The entire WSOP team is hard at work to ensure players have the absolute best experience possible.”
