2013 World Series Of Poker Schedule Released
Some of you may be asking, When does WSOP 2013 start? Well we have the answers right here:
The schedule for the 2013 World Series Of Poker (WSOP) has been announced as being similar to that of the 2012 schedule.
Starting on Wednesday 29th May, the traditional first tournament – the Casino Employees No Limit Hold ‘Em Event is also likely to start on the same day.
WSOP 2013 will run for a total of 49 consecutive days, ending with the elimination of the 10th place finish of the $10,000 No-Limit Hold ‘Em Main Event on July 16th 2013, and therefore setting up the final table.
Expected to continue the new tradition, it is thought that the Main Event will be delayed until the ‘November Nine‘ reunite in the Autumn.
The Main Event will last over a week, starting on Sunday 7th July. As of yet, the day by day schedule is still not 100% known, however it is expected to be very similar to that of 2012’s.
The 2013 World Series Of Poker will be approximately 60 events (61 in 2012), including the Ladies and Seniors Events.
A press release by WSOP said that the weekends would be favoured for No Limit Hold ‘Em events, probably as this is the most convenient time for people to get to The Rio to take part. This year (2012), there were 17 different NL Hold ‘Em events that started on a weekend.
One of the 17 events was The Big One for One Drop, the $1 million buy in event in which one ninth of the buy in went straight to charity. This event will not appear in 2013, but is said to be returning for the 2014 WSOP.
A WSOP record breaking amount was created in the 2012 World Series Of Poker, $222 million was the prize pool created by the 74,766 poker players registering for the event.
