World Series of Poker Releases Full Schedule: 99 Bracelet Events and New Games Added to Schedule

Last year’s World Series of Poker (WSOP) was one of the most successful in the Series’ long and exciting history, as it broke a number of long-standing records, including the one for Main Event attendance.

Now, WSOP has released the full schedule for the 55th edition of the festival, which features a total of 99 bracelet events, with buyins ranging from just a few hundred dollars to $250,000 and the most extensive range of games found in any tournament festival in the world.

The 55th Annual World Series of Poker will kick off on May 28 and will run well into the summer, with July 17 the final day of the festival.

The Main Event, which is typically the most anticipated tournament of the year, will start on July 3 and will run for two full weeks, creating plenty of exciting TV poker content and offering a new chance to break records and make history.

The Series returns to the Las Vegas Strip this year, with Caesars Entertainment-owned Paris and Horseshoe properties once again acting as host venues, and 100 new poker tables added to the tournament area to ensure the Series can fit more players than ever before.

Record-Breaking Number of Bracelet Events

The 55th edition of WSOP has broken records before it’s even begun, as the festival will offer more WSOP bracelet events than any in the history.

A total of 99 gold bracelets will be awarded in Las Vegas this summer, creating more opportunity than ever before for double and triple champions, and allowing tournament grinders the best shot yet at adding at least one piece of 2024 WSOP memorabilia to their trophy cabinets.

As is usually the case, WSOP has amended the existing schedule with a handful of new events. This time around, there will be a dozen events on the schedule that have never been played before, including the first appearance of Double Board Bomb Pots at the Series.

Some other exciting new events will include the $500 WSOP Kick-Off event, the $10,000 Big O Championship, $10,000 Eight Game 6-Max Championship, and the $3,000 Mid-Stakes Championship.

For the first time in a long time, the Tournament of Champions which is typically played during the Series will not be on the calendar during the summer, while a $5,000 Champions Reunion event will be played to kick-off the summer instead of the casino employees event.

Pokerfuse reports that the most popular low stakes WSOP events such as the Gladiator, Millionaire Maker, and Colossus will all return, along with all the Championship and High Roller events we are used to seeing throughout the Series.

Champions Reunion Offers a Chance at Main Event Freeroll

The WSOP is always full of surprises and this year’s Champions Reunion event will be quite a big one, as it offers a chance for all players to earn a free Main Event entry.

The event will feature a $5,000 buyin and a freezeout structure, so rare in today’s poker world. All previous Main Event champions will get to play the event for free, which means we can expect to see most of them in attendance on the first day of the Series.

Everyone else will be free to enter the event for $5,000 and have a chance to earn a free $10,000 Main Event seat by eliminating any of the previous WSOP Main Event champions.

The popular Main Event Maynia will be back on the schedule as well, offering tons of opportunities to win Main Event seats for a fraction of the price, while once again creating a real chance at a new Main Event attendance record in 2024.
