Last month, it was announced that the next Las Vegas World Series of Poker would take place in June and July 2020. Only 12 actual event dates were released and now the tournament’s organizers have provided a little bit more information – this time, concerning high rollers.
The WSOP has announced all of the events with a $10,000 buy-in or more. These are considered the “Championship Events”, which normally attract high rollers and the best pros in the world.

These types of events draw in players who are eager to prove themselves in the poker world, as well as those who are looking to land a big payday. That’s why there are Championship events for just about every kind of poker.
Most poker tournaments are centred around No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha Games. However, this variety of events allows players who excel in different variants to shine. So, at this year’s WSOP Las Vegas, you’ll be able to compete for big sucks whether you’re interested in Draw, Omaha, Hold’em, Short Deck or Stud poker. There are even Razz and Dealers’ Choice games, so it seems like all bases are covered.
“We are proud to be the only tournament series who spreads such an offering and have worked with some of the games most distinguished players this off-season to ensure our schedule and the events themselves align well with where poker is in 2020″– Jack Effel, WSOP Vice President.
Now, nearly 30 WSOP Las Vegas events have been announced. There will likely be plenty more event dates released in the coming week, and we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as they are made public.
