2012 WSOP Schedule Released

0

The schedule for the 2012 World Series of Poker was released by Caesars Entertainment and included some surprises. The series will award an all-time record of 61 bracelets and the delayed final table that has come to be known over the past 3 years as the November Nine final will now be played in October, so will they call it the October Nine?. The reason for the change to October is so that the televised WSOP doesn’t conflict with the U.S. presidential election on November 6.

The schedule will include a full 61 bracelet events, which is the biggest number in the 32 years of the WSOP’s existence. The WSOP events will still be played at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas even though there has been recent talk about a venue change.

Some new events on the schedule include a $5,000 Mix-Max NLHE event, a $3,000 Heads-Up NLHE/PLO event, a $2,500 four-handed NLHE event, and a $1,500 Ante Only tournament with no blinds.

The BIG ONE for ONE DROP event has also been added to the schedule. This event features a massive $1 million buy-in, with 11.1% of the prize pool going to Guy Laliberté’s One Drop Foundation charity. Several big name pros are already confirmed to be playing this record-breaking tournament.

This year’s World Series will also be the longest ever, beginning on May 27 and running through to July 16, which will also be the last Day 7 of the Main Event.

You can view the full schedule below.
