The 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) schedule is finally complete, featuring a total of 101 bracelet events, 87 taking place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and 14 to be won online at WSOP.com.
The schedule was finalized last week following the addition of the final eight -bracelet events, to be played in no-limit hold-em and mixed games format within the $2,500 – $5,000 buy-in range.
Events have been released in batches, with the WSOP also introducing new changes, such as hosting more freezeout events and launching new leaderboards across different buy-in levels, apart from the Player of the Year race. A brand-new $250,000 buy-in Super High Roller, the largest buy-in tournament in WSOP history, is also set to debut this year.
With just less than three months to go before the festival officially kicks off, it’s about time you start arranging your summer schedule, and while the ongoing coronavirus outbreak has become a cause for concern to many, WSOP officials are assuring everyone that the schedule remains intact, and there are currently no plans to cancel the event.
Improved Registration Structure
With each passing year, the WSOP has remained committed to improving the entire festival experience for players and fans. This year, officials are setting their eyes on how to better deal with congestion at the venue, resulting from the influx of players from all over the world, especially now that the number of bracelet events have been increased from 89 last year to 101 this year.
To enable players to get in their seats much faster and make the best of their summer poker holiday in Vegas, there will be separate rooms intended for in-person registration and payout claiming. The WSOP will also make it a point to better inform players and guests about registration requirements, to avoid any difficulties at the time of registration.
One of the required documents upon signing up for events is a physical Caesars Rewards card which players can get in the Rotunda of the Rio convention center. To get yourself a Caesars Rewards card, you need to present a valid ID with your picture. If you have a passport or a state-issued driver’s license, you may present it to obtain the card.
Players can also register online to avoid long lines. The online/mobile registration option can be done in two ways. First, you may set up an account with BravoPokerLive.com and pay using a credit card. You will need to pay additional fees, but if you want to avoid long queues and start your favorite events early, it is a great option.
Another option for online registration is through a funded WSOP Tournament Account which was launched last year. You only need to set up an account at the cage and after that, you can now register online and print your seat card at designated kiosks in the convention center in less than a minute. If you normally play more than two WSOP events each year, then this option is great for you. It’s the method actually being used by Daniel Negreanu in registering for events.
Online registration is expected to open in April.
