2012 World Series of Poker Dates Set

by | Published: Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

WSOP staff announced today that the 44th annual World Series of Poker will begin on Wednesday May 29th, 2013 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

While the complete schedule was not released but WSOP revealed that around sixty gold bracelets will be awarded and the annual tournaments reserved for seniors, ladies and casino employees will return.

The event will run for forty-nine consecutive days and will feature satellites, cash games and daily deep stack tournaments as well as the prestigious bracelet events.

In 2013 tournament buy-ins will start as low as $75 while cash games will run concurrently, twenty-four hours a day, over the entire event.

The main event of the World Series of Poker – the $10,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Main Event championship – is slated to run over ten consecutive days and will commence on the 7th of July.

The Main Event will once again feature three starting flights one each on July 7th, July 8th and July 9th.

World Series of Poker officials are hoping that the 2013 event will attract even more players than this year’s event.

“The 2012 WSOP attracted 74,766 participants in a total of 61 events, generating a prize pool of more than $222 million – the largest prize pool in the WSOP’s 43-year history. Participants in WSOP events hailed from 101 countries in 2012,” WSOP said in a statement.

The $1 million buy-in Big One For One Drop tournament will not return in 2013 with a “Little One For One Drop” being held in its place.

The “Little One For One Drop” will be an $1111 unlimited re-entry bracelet event where a percentage of every entry will go to the One Drop charity.

The $1 million buy-in Big One For One Drop tournament is slated to return to the World Series of Poker schedule in 2014.
