The World Series of Poker Las Vegas continues to be one of the biggest high-profile events in the poker world, and next year’s event is sure to see as much action as ever. This week, the dates for the 2020 WSOP Las Vegas have been announced with important details about the thrilling Main Event.

It has been revealed that next year’s World Series of Poker will take place from May 26th to July 15th at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. Players will be able to compete in the Main Event from July 1st to July 14th.

As has been the case in recent history, the buy-in for the WSOP 2020 Main Event will be $10,000. Players will be able to take part in three starting flights from July 1st to July 3rd, and there will be two Day 2s. All surviving players from Days 1A and 1B will compete again on July 4th on Day 2AB. Players from Day 1C who make it through will play again on Day 2C on July 5th.

All of the fields will then compete together starting from July 6th. This is where the action is sure to pick up, as things get more competitive among players who want to make the final table – which is anticipated to start on July 10th.

If $10,000 is a bit too high-stakes for your bankroll, you’ll be pleased to know that there will be a wide range of satellites events both online and in person. Last year, satellite events started at just a few dollars, and players were able to make their way from a small buy-in all the way to the WSOP Main.

Looking Back at the WSOP 2019

Last year’s World Series of Poker celebrated 50 years of the prestigious event with a whopping 90 tournaments. It was a huge event where over 150,000 players from around the world showed up to compete.

The 2019 WSOP Main Event was won by Hossein Ensan, who took home an impressive $10 million. He ended up in a heads-up battle against Dario Sammartino, who took home a $6 million second-place prize.

In the Main Event, 8,569 players competed in total. This generated a prize pool worth over $80 million, making for a very exciting event for both players and spectators.

We’re sure to see the same thrills in the upcoming WSOP Las Vegas, and we’re very excited to hear more about the events that will be taking place.
