It is never too early to prepare for a tournament of the same magnitude as the World Series of poker, with poker professionals and amateurs anxiously waiting for the official dates. Everyone knows that the tournament starts somewhere at the end of May and concludes in early July, but some events are more important than the other. The highroller competitions, the charitable tournaments and the main event were the ones that players were particularly interested in.
Now that the complete schedule has been revealed for WSOP 2015, prospective players should only boost their bankrolls and make sure they don’t have a conflicting schedule. Obviously, the competition will be once again organized by the famous Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino which has been the host for the tournament in the last decade. The main event will set players back $10,000 but last year the winner took home $10 million, so it was obviously a smart investment.
It all begins on May 27 and the last hand will be dealt on July 14, but the winner of the main event will be decided in November. Jamie gold remains the biggest winner so far, with $12 million to his name, but over the last couple of years there were some who came pretty close in terms of money won. There will be a few new tournaments introduced in 2015 and the Colossus is the one that will appeal mostly to beginners and those who hope to get rich without breaking the bank.
It has a guaranteed prize pool of $5 million, which is a lot of money by any standards and players will only have to buy in for $565. More key dates will be announced as the competition draws near, but meanwhile the most important six tournaments have been set in stone:
|Millionaire Maker||June 5/6||$1,500 ($1 million guaranteed to winner)|
|Monster Stack||June 12/13||$1,500|
|Seniors Championship||June 19||$1,000|
|Ladies Championship||June 25||$10,000 (90% discount for ladies)|
|ONE DROP High Roller||June 28||$111,111|
|Little One for ONE DROP||June 30||$1,111|
