Ever since the World Series of Poker 2020 was announced, officials have been making regular updates on new events that are going to take place in a few months. The 2020 edition of the WSOP will start on May 26 and last all the way through until July 15.
The host venue will, once again, be the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, which is located in the heart of Nevada — the city of Las Vegas.
At the moment, a total of 79 events have been announced, with the majority of them being live. However, WSOP will also include several online events.
Most of these competitions are divided into series, such as the Freezeout Series, $10,000 Championship Events, Value Menu, and High Rollers.
Officials recently announced the completion of another series of events, which are simply called $1,500 events, since that is the amount players have to pay to take part in any of them. This type of event has been part of basically every WSOP tournament since 1977, and their popularity has been increasing ever since.
In 2019, they saw a total of 3,332 entrants on average who managed to create prize pools that averaged at $4,49 million. The average first prize for event winners last year was $642,173.
The new list of $1,500 events was announced on Feb. 5, so make sure to take your pen and paper and write down some of them, as they might be just right for you. Needless to say, it is expected that these events attract more people than ever before.
