In the last few months, World Series of Poker (WSOP) has done a really good job in building up anticipation for the world’s most sought after poker series of the year. 2020 is the year for WSOP’s 51st series as they enter the second half of the century in their history and once again thousands of players will make their way down from all over the world to the RIO All Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas this summer!
Being the biggest tournament in poker history, WSOP organisers are increasingly under pressure every year to deliver something bigger, better, more innovative and something unexpected. This year, the WSOP team kept announcing small details and updates on the schedule on a regular basis which kept the poker community buzzing and excited about the official line-up.
A Total Of 101 Bracelet Events
The WSOP 2020 Schedule consists of a total of 101 Bracelet events, of which 87 are live events and 14 will be played online. All of these tournaments will be played out between 26th May and 15th July.
A press release from WSOP reads, “while the event schedule is now finalized, several notable enhancements are coming to the 2020 WSOP which will be detailed in the coming months. The first area of improvement involves the registration process.”
One of the main changes is supposed to be the change in the location of registration and payout booths. Players that are used to the old locations are advised to reorient themselves to go to buy-in or cash out their winnings. The WSOP also advises players to register for their WSOP Tournament Accounts online and also to make use of the registration kiosks which were introduced last year and regularly featured on Daniel Negreanu’s blogs while he was grinding many of the events last year.
“The WSOP Tournament Account is a no-brainer for anyone who plays more than a couple WSOP events annually,” said Negreanu. “Literally I went to the registration cage once to set it up, then utilized the self-serve kiosks the rest of the summer to register for any event I wanted to play. I was in and out of the kiosk in less than a minute and on my way to my seat.”
