When is the world series of poker main event
The first World Series of Poker Main Event was held in 1970 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Currently there are two poker tournaments that make up the WSOP, The WSOP Main Event and the WSOP Doyle Brunson Five Million Dollar Grand Prize. The WSOp Main Event and the WSOP EPT Million Dollar Challenge are two of the other flagship events the World Series of Poker holds.The WSOP Main Event is, by far, the most popular and lucrative poker tournament on the planet. Only the top 60 players make it to this event, which consists of a series of one-day preliminary events leading to a single nine-day tournament held at Las Vegas’s Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.The winner receives $50,000 and a bracelet, while second place gets $40,000 and a bracelet. Third through fifth place each collect $30,000 and a bracelet. There is no buy-in for the main event and all players must qualify for it by winning one of over 6,000 preliminary tournaments that begin at various venues around the world in December.
Is there a WSOP Main Event this year?
No, there is no WSOP Main Event this year.The 2017 WSOP will have a combined event of the Event #44: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha H.O.R.S.E. and Event #53 $1,500 No Limit Hold’em tournament. All players who finished in the money in either of these events will receive a seat into the main event later this summer at The Rio 2016 Casino Hotel & Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. This will mark just the second time in five years that you will be able to buy into the main event directly.The WSOP Main Event field has been limited to 2,000 entrants since 2011 and due to the popularity of poker this is one of the most sought after seats to buy into because normally it can sell out months before the main event begins.
