It was just last week that the World Series of Poker organizers announced their dates for the upcoming Las Vegas event next summer, and now we have confirmation of 12 of the events. The final schedule has yet to be confirmed, but these are the important WSOP events that players should be aware of so far just in case they want to start planning their travels.
“While we are still putting together the 2020 WSOP schedule in its entirety, we have cemented the key no-limit hold’em events that anchor it all. We hope this announcement right before the holidays can help you lock in travel plans. We will continue to fill out the rest of the schedule and provide updates as we progress.”

With four events that have no re-entries, Daniel Negreanu is sure to be pleased. The player has recently spoken out about rebuys in poker tournaments, so it’s great to see the WSOP offering what seems to be a fair balance between freezeouts and re-entry events.
How Many More Events Will There Be?
Last year, there were 90 events, and we’re not sure yet if the WSOP aims to top this. 2019 was the 50th anniversary of the tournament, so it was the kind of event where the WSOP would want to make a big deal and offer a huge number of competitions. So, it would be great if there would be 50 or more events this year – but, it’s understandable if that isn’t entirely feasible.
We’re going to be looking out for more WSOP event announcements, but there probably won’t be any more before 2020 begins at the Rio All Suites in Las Vegas. Next year’s tournament is surely going to be thrilling.
