2018 WSOP Schedule Released

The 2018 World Series of Poker (WSOP) schedule was released Tuesday, unveiling a slate that will run May 29th through July 17th. There will be 78 gold bracelet events, an increase of four from this year. $ 10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Championship, best known as the Main Event, will begin Monday, July 2nd with the first of three starting flights. Like this year, when the tournament gets to Day 3 with a merged field (there will be multiple Day 2 flights, as usual), it will continue to run every day until its conclusion without a break. In previous years, the tournament paused when the nine-handed final table was determined, reconvening in November with the “November Nine.” This year was the first time in a decade that the November Nine format was discarded.

2017-2018 WSOP International Circuit Schedule Released

As if the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event hasn’t been big enough news for the past week, the WSOP recently gave players outside of the United States something to look forward to, releasing the schedule for the 2017-2018 WSOP International Circuit. The schedule consists of thirteen events, though the WSOP says that more stops are expected to be added for the part of the slate that will take place in 2018. The first stop will kick off shortly after the WSOP Main Event ends, August 2-8 in Iguazu, Argentina.

2016-2017 World Series of Poker Circuit Schedule Released

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) released the schedule for the thirteenth season of the World Series of Poker Circuit Tuesday, a schedule which features 22 tour stops in the United States plus six more international stops. The centerpiece of the schedule appears to be Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina. The WSOP Circuit season begins August 4, 2016 at Harrah’s Cherokee and concludes there, as well, with the WSOP Global Casino Championship. The dates have yet to be determined for the Championship. AND THEN…in the middle of the schedule – spanning the end of November and beginning of December – is a third date at Harrah’s Cherokee (well, technically second, as the Championship is the third date). Two new tour stops have made the schedule: Potawatomi Hotel & Casino in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in February 2017 and Hard Rock Tulsa in March 2017. IP in Biloxi, Mississippi isn’t quite a “new”

APPT Macau Millions and Macau Poker Cup 24 Schedules Released

We are in a bit of a holiday lull right now when it comes to major live poker tournaments (though that doesn’t differ much from the lull most people are in at this time of year – how long does each work day this week feel?), but once the calendar page turns, it is off to the races once again. One of the first live poker tours that will step to the plate is the PokerStars Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT). Today, PokerStars released the schedules for the first and third stops on the tour: the Macau Millions and the Macau Poker Cup 24. The Macau Millions kicks off Friday, January 8th with the first of nine events and will run through January 18th. The Main Event, which begins Thursday, January 14th, has a HK $ 3,000 buy-in (approximately USD $ 387) and a HK $ 3,000,000 (USD $ 387,093)
