2024 World Series of Poker releases daily event schedule

16 February 2024

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The richest, most prestigious and longest-running poker series – the World Series of Poker – today announced its full daily event schedule for the 2024 World Series of Poker, following the success of the record-breaking tournament in 2023. The 55th edition of the series heads back to the Las Vegas Strip at Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas.

The 2024 series will run from 28 May to 17 July 2024, offering nearly 700 tables, many new events and, of course, the highly coveted WSOP Main Event Bracelet. The Main Event will begin on 3 July, with four starting flights running until 6 July. Late registration will be available on 7-8 July through Level 7 or around 4:40 p.m. on Day 2 of each day.

The Main Event Final Table will occur 16-17 July at Horseshoe Las Vegas. Last year’s Main Event drew a record 10,043 entrants and crowned Daniel Weinman as its champion. Hailing from Atlanta, Ga., Weinman became the first American to win the WSOP Main Event since 2018 taking home $12.1 million, the largest Main Event first-prize payout in series history.

Weinman and many former WSOP Main Event champions will kick off the 2024 series with an all-new event, the Champions Reunion No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout. Serving as Event #1 on this year’s schedule, the contest features a $5,000 buy-in and an exciting twist, allowing players who knock out a former Main Event champion to receive an automatic entry into the 2024 WSOP Main Event as a bounty. All living Main Event champions will be given a free entry to play in the event.

“We’re proud to be Las Vegas’s original Main Event,” said Ty Stewart, SVP & Executive Director of the WSOP. “Records are made to be broken, so our motto this year is bigger and better. With our best schedule ever and more than 100 additional poker tables, we look forward to welcoming legends, first-timers and everyone in between. If you’re a poker player, there is simply no experience on earth like the World Series of Poker.”

The opening week for the 55th edition of the WSOP contains more action-packed events, with the Champions Freezeout and Event #3 WSOP Kickoff No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout.

Other new and noteworthy series highlights include:

Seniors High Roller No-Limit Hold'em – Event #65: For the first time, players ages 50 and up can participate in an exclusive new high roller event with the Seniors High Roller No-Limit Hold'em tournament. Featuring a $5,000 buy-in and 50,000 starting stack, the three-day event begins on Wednesday, 26 June.

Mixed No-Limit Hold'em; Pot-Limit Omaha Double Board Bomb Pot (8 Handed) – Event #41: Beginning on Saturday, 15 June, this first-of-its-kind event will take place over three days. The buy-in for this event will be $1,500 with a starting stack of 25,000.

PokerNews Deep Stack Championship No-Limit Hold'em – Event #62: PokerNews will sponsor the $600 deep stack championship on 25 June as well as offering special promotions to put the spotlight on the low-stakes grinders. In addition to editorial coverage, for four weeks from 28 May - 24 June, players who participate in the daily $200, $250, or $400 deep stack tournaments at the WSOP will earn points and climb leaderboards. The top 10 point earners each week will get complimentary seats into the $600 PokerNews Deep Stack Championship.

Independence Day Celebration No-Limit Hold'em – Event #80: Celebrate Independence Day with a new three-day event at the WSOP. Flight A begins on Wednesday, 3 July, and Flight B will begin on Thursday, 4 July. Both flights contain $800 buy-ins and a starting stack of 40,000.

$1,000 No-Limit Hold’em During Main Event – Event #82: As Flight 1D of the Main Event occurs on Saturday, 6 July, there will be a $1,000 buy-in Hold’em event at 7:00 p.m. that night. The two-day event will contain a starting stack of 20,000.

$3,000 Mid-Stakes Championship No-Limit Hold’em – Event #89: For players who bust out of the Main Event but want to remain a part of the high-stakes action, this new four-day event begins on July 11 with a $3,000 buy-in and a starting stack of 40,000.

Poker fans from around the world can enjoy the sights and sounds of the Las Vegas Strip while reveling in the history linked to Horseshoe Las Vegas. Horseshoe owns a special place in the legacy of the World Series of Poker, as the first-ever WSOP was held at Horseshoe in downtown Las Vegas in 1970. Last summer, the WSOP unveiled the Hall of Fame Poker Room at Horseshoe Las Vegas, featuring 20 poker tables with non-stop action 24/7 and a permanent Poker Hall of Fame exhibit that pays tribute to the sport's legends and history. The 2023 inductee to the Poker Hall of Fame was long-time poker great Brian Rast. The 2024 inductee will be announced this summer.

The WSOP Final Table, TV set and staging will again reside inside Horseshoe Las Vegas, and the main cage will be located at Paris Las Vegas. The two buildings are connected and share a parking garage, which can be accessed from Paris Drive. In addition to the new Versailles Tower featuring redesigned luxury guestrooms, Paris Las Vegas has become a mecca for foodies with the recent openings of several dining destinations led by restaurateurs and world-famous chefs, such as Nobu, Bobby’s Burgers by Bobby Flay, The Bedford by Martha Stewart and Vanderpump à Paris.

Weekend marquee events will have adjusted starting flights during the 2024 WSOP. The events will now have either three starting flights Friday through Sunday or four starting flights Thursday through Sunday. This change results in popular events such as Monster Stack, Millionaire Maker, and Colossus now having three starting flights. Additionally, Mega Satellites will now be played as “Landmark Mega Satellites,” where participants will accumulate a certain amount of chips (e.g., 10x starting stack) to win a seat in the respective event.

Daily Deep Stack tournaments will run every day from 28 May to 16 July, with buy-ins ranging from $200 to $400. In addition, Daily Landmark Mega Satellites will happen from 28 May to 15 July with buy-ins starting at $135 and topping off at $25,000.

Part of the record-breaking success of 2023 was due to international and domestic online satellites on GGPoker and WSOP.COM. GGPoker, the world’s leading online poker room, will again offer exclusive satellites to the 2024 WSOP.

“Last year, 774 players made the GGPoker Road to Vegas, cashing for over $5 Million in Main Event prizes,” said Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker Global Ambassador and six-time WSOP bracelet winner. “This summer, we aim to send 1,000 players to their WSOP Dream.”

Popular WSOP.COM Online Bracelet events return to action with domestic daily satellite qualifiers with Main Event satellites offered for as little as $1. In 2023, WSOP.COM qualified more than 450 players into the $10,000 Main Event with plans to exceed that figure this year. Also, in 2024 during each night of the series, WSOP.COM will host a guaranteed seat mega satellite for the next day’s bracelet event. Details on the date and location for the WSOP Circuit season-ending Tournament of Champions will be announced by 15 March.

Main Event Maynia, the WSOP’s official guaranteed seat-qualifier series, returns in 2024, providing another way to qualify for the 2024 WSOP through land-based satellites at official partner casino resorts and card rooms throughout the country and the world. Participating locations include the Horseshoe St. Louis, Grand Victoria Casino Elgin, Harrah’s Cherokee, Horseshoe Tunica, Harrah’s Pompano Beach, Thunder Valley Casino Resort, Turning Stone Resort Casino, Horseshoe Las Vegas, Foxwoods Resort Casino, and Graton Casino and Resort.

PokerGO, the world’s largest poker content company and streaming platform, returns as the official livestream and production partner of the WSOP. Throughout the summer, PokerGO will livestream dozens of WSOP gold bracelet events, including live coverage of the 2024 WSOP Main Event, across PokerGO.com and other platforms. The full WSOP livestream schedule will be released soon and found at pokergo.com/schedule. Additionally, PokerGO will produce new WSOP episodes to air on CBS Sports, the exclusive domestic television home of the WSOP.

When booking early, entrants of the WSOP bracelet events can enjoy reduced hotel room rates at Horseshoe and Paris, as well as all Caesars Entertainment resorts in Las Vegas, by using the special advanced booking code "WSOP24". Rates are based on availability and are subject to change. Please visit our reservations page to view a complete list of rates across all Caesars Entertainment properties.
