The Schedule for the 2013 World Series Of Poker (WSOP) has been announced.
I, along with many other Poker Players have been expecting the announcement for some time, and finally Caesars Entertainment and official WSOP came forward on February 15th to put us out of our misery.
The 44th annual WSOP is going to run from May 29th through to July 15th, 2013.
With three months until the event kicks off, we have plenty of time to improve our play and ready ourselves for the challenge!
The event starts on May 29th, and is going to consist of 62 events, with a lot of focus no doubt being put on the $10,000 Championship Event. According to the news article on wsop.com, the “November Nine” is to go ahead again, starting on July 15th, and then will be played on November 4th and 5th.
The event I personally am most looking forward to is the Millionaire Maker, or ‘Event #6’ that starts on June 1st. I think it’s going to attract a lot of media attention and get a lot of players interested, as the winner receives a guaranteed $1 million regardless of how many people enter the event.
Of course, the famous Casino Employees Event is going ahead this year, and is going to commence on May 29th, the day it all kicks off.
Sadly. after the success of 2012’s “Big One For One Drop” event, it has been confirmed that it won’t be making an appearance this year, although after talking to people on Twitter and through various news articles online, it is heavily speculated that it will be returning in 2014. This year though, there will be two smaller versions, the “One Drop High Roller” and the “Little One For One Drop” which will apparently feature a $111,111 and $1,111 buy-in respectively.
A different tournament that is said not to be appearing in this year’s WSOP, but could possibly make an appearance in the future, is the Open Face Chinese Poker, not much has been mentioned about it online, but i will be keeping an eye out and updating as more news is released, in the mean time, read the How To Play guide of Open Face Chinese Poker at CardPlayer.com
