In less than 40 days, the world will once again be treated to one of the most entertaining and treasure-laden competitions in poker: the 2024 World Series of Poker. Enthusiasts are bracing for one of the busiest times of the poker calendar, with the full schedule of live events having been announced following the completion of the 2023 edition.

This year's event, which is planned to take place at the Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas, will feature at least 98 other opportunities for players to win a gold bracelet.

WSOP 2024 is scheduled to kick off on May 28 and will run through to the night of July 17, where the Main Event, pitting 4 of the best players thus far, will be played to determine this year's winner.

To ensure that this year's event attracts a larger crowd than ever before, organizers have set the lowest buy-in at $300 and a maximum of $250,000. This means that whether you're on a balling budget or a high roller, the WSOP 2024 promises to accommodate all. For more updates, read ahead to learn about the latest developments in the upcoming 2024 World Series Of Poker.

About The WSOP Tournament

The World Series of Poker, part of Ceasers Entertainment Digital operations, is considered the world's most prestigious and richest gaming event. To date, the tournament has awarded over $4 billion in prize money and gold bracelets, which is considered the sport's highest accolade.

The tournament runs back to 1970 and is thus considered the world's longest-running poker tournament. If you want to have a shot at any variation of poker you can think of, then this is an event you wouldn’t want to miss.

Last year's tournament saw 214,641 players compete for glory and treasure. These players came from over 114 different countries and won more than $403 million awarded in prize money.

To grow the popularity of its events, WSOP has forged partnerships with a host of digital media, corporate, and broadcasting sponsorships. The event gained international stature with the launch of WSOP Europe, WSOP Asia-Pacific, The Paradise International Circuit Series, and The Atlantis Paradise Island editions, which debuted in 2007, 2013, 2015, and 2023, respectively.

As we draw closer to May, we expect the 2024 WSOP tournament to attract thousands of poker enthusiasts from around the globe. We anticipate this year's prize pool exceeding the $300 million with a mix of classic poker formats alongside innovative novel tournament structures.

We also have reasons to believe that this year's final table event, the Main Event, will feature No-Limit Hold’em as the tournament decider. You can read more about previous tournament winners, bracelet holders, and circuit ring record holders on Casinojungle.ca.

Latest Additions

WSOP organizers wish to spice things up this year with a few fun wrinkles and theme variations among the upcoming 99 events. For instance, the first-ever WSOP edition of Mystery Bounty will be available for Pot Limit Omaha players. Additionally, the 2023 Five-card Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo debutant, which has a buy-in of $500, will this year get a $10,000 Championship event.

Away from the PLO, this year will also witness another debutant, a half No Limit Hold’em, half Pot Limit Omaha “Double Board Bomb Pot” tournament. In this brand new format, each game's first hand will force an oversized ante. Another new entrant will be a six-handed 8-Game Mix tournament worth $10,000.

Besides these new updates, WSOP 2024 will feature a bunch of freshly branded No Limit Hold’em events, with a notable inclusion being a $5,000 buy-in Seniors High Roller. This event has been selectively introduced in this new year's tournament to cater to the needs of the experienced poker masters.

The new additions and rebranded formats being introduced into this year's WSOP tournament are guaranteed to make a marked difference.

The Main Event

The WSOP 2024 Main Event has a challenge to beat — in fact, two. First, registration for the main event should surpass the 10,043 entrants recorded in last year's event. Second, the payout of $12 million still stands as the highest ever, now recorded in two editions. Poker players are anticipating this year's main event to register a payout of $15 million, so it's fair to say that WSOP has some serious milestones to accomplish.

The 2024 Main Event kicks off on Wednesday, July 3. On Day 1A, at noon, players will start with 60K chips and play five levels, each slated to last 2 hours. Days 1B, 1C, and 1D will follow suit on Thursday, July 4th, Friday, July 5th, and Saturday, July 6th, respectively.

Registration will remain open for the Main Event even as it progresses to Day 2ABCC, and those eliminated will have a chance to re-enter the competition until July 8th.

On the 14th of July, the final table is expected to be reached with nine players, who should play down to four on the 16th. The final showdown of the WSOP Main Event, featuring four players, is expected to take place on the 17th. The winner of the WSOP 2024 championship will emerge as the last man standing when the four remaining players play it all out, thus marking the end of this year's championship.

Conclusion

The WSOP 2024 is here. After the entertaining showdown of the 2023 edition, everyone is anticipating a breathtaking and record-breaking WSOP 2024. This year's event is poised to be unforgettable, with a host of new formats and rebranded themes making their debut this year. For poker enthusiasts all over the world, all roads lead to Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas for this year's WSOP tournament, with lots of mullah and other prizes up for grabs.
