"The Real Deal": WSOP Reveals Full Schedule for 2021 Live Series in Las Vegas "The Real Deal": WSOP Reveals Full Schedule for 2021 Live Series in Las Vegas

The World Series of Poker has finally revealed the full schedule for its 2021 series, starting in the later slot of September 30 and running through to November 23.

In total, 88 bracelet events are on the schedule, with many classic and player-favorite formats along with some unique new additions for the year.

“Make no mistake, the 2021 WSOP will be the real deal and we’re preparing for a full house,” said Ty Stewart, the WSOP’s Executive Director.

“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,” he added. “We’re beyond thrilled to offer a complete schedule of can’t-miss events including all our flagships and the variety players deserve.”

Some notable events include the Event #84, Nosebleed PLO, the WSOP’s highest-ever buy-in PLO tournament with a price tag of $50,000. It forms part of the High Roller series scheduled to run after the Main Event, which also includes $50,000, $100,000 and $250,000 buy-in NL Hold’em tournaments.

Another curious addition is the GGPoker-sponsored Flip and Go tournament, structured like the operator’s online poker variant of the same name which debuted in January. As the name would imply, players flip until just one remains at the table, at which point all players have made the money and play continues as normal.

Event #20, the $1000 buy-in FLIP & GO No-Limit Hold’em, will take exactly this format. It will even have the “pineapple” structure of the flip stage, where all players are dealt three hole cards and must discard one. It will be played over two flights.

As is tradition, most tournaments have no guarantee—they hardly need it—but there is one: Event #4, The $500 The Reunion. It has a $5 million guaranteed prize pool. It will need to attract 10,000 players over its three Day 1 flights in order to cover.

Other tournaments highlighted in today’s press release by the WSOP include:

  • Return of Record Breakers: A brand that will encompass WSOP’s “flagship” NL Hold’em tournaments each Friday and Saturday, with the likes of Millionaire Maker, Monster Stack, Double Stack, Colossus and The Closer all making their return.
  • $25,000 Heads Up No-Limit Hold’em Championship: Just 64 players with a new, larger buy-in to up the prestige.
  • “Old School Freezeouts Return”—Every popular buy-in level from $500 through to $5000 will have a freezeout.

“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.”
