12 Events Confirmed for WSOP Las Vegas

The WSOP is giving poker players around the world ample notice for making travel plans for its Las Vegas tournament next year, having announced 12 events so far.

WSOP Announces First Las Vegas Events

Last week, it was announced that the 2020 World Series of Poker Las Vegas would take place from May 26th to July 15th. Now, the organizers of the tournament have confirmed the first few events that will be taking place. These are considered some of the most important events of the WSOP, so players will be able to begin planning for the tournament already.

“While we are still putting together the 2020 WSOP schedule in its entirety, we have cemented the key no-limit hold’em events that anchor it all. We will continue to fill out the rest of the schedule and provide updates as we progress.”

Many Options for a Variety of Players

By looking at the first 12 events, there seems to be a good mix of buy-ins. From $500 for the Big 50 and the Casino Employees event all the way up to $10,000 for the Main Event where millions are available for the winner, there is a decent choice for players with a wide variety of buy-ins.

Of course, $500 may be a bit too expensive for some players, but there are always loads of satellites available for players to enter online. Last year, there were satellites and feeder events with buy-ins ranging from $1 to $10. So, even players who have small budgets can play their way to the WSOP next year.

There will surely be many more events announced, but this is unlikely to happen until the new year. Until then, these 12 events should give you a good idea of the key dates for the 2020 WSOP just in case you want to start making your travel plans for the new year.
