Next year’s World Series of Poker is set to take place from May 25th to July 15th, and the organizers of the tournament have already confirmed a number of events. So, if you’re planning on heading to Nevada to take part, you have ample time to sort out your travel plans.
The WSOP wants to ensure that players have enough time to plan out their schedules in the upcoming tournament. So, the organization has laid out the schedule for the most important events. A statement from the WSOP reads:
“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 will continue to fill out the rest of the schedule and provide updates as we progress.”
The first WSOP events to be announced are as follows:

There really is a great mix of events for players to enjoy. Buy-ins range from $500 up to $10,000, so players with a wide variety of bankrolls will be able to take part. The high roller event has yet to be confirmed still but, based on previous years’ tournaments, the buy-in is likely to range from $50,000 to $100,000 and will certainly attract plenty of big-name players.
WSOP satellites have also been announced. You’ll be able to take part in a $215 main event satellite every Sunday, and there are many smaller feeder events that are available for players as well.
More events will be announced soon, but we probably won’t hear anything else for the rest of the year. We’ll be listening out for more WSOP Las Vegas event dates at the beginning of 2020.
