WSOP 2013 Full Schedule Released
Although beginning and end of the World Series had been known for months already, organizers of the finally released the official WOSP 2013 calendar giving players from all over the planet a chance to start making their own plans and booking their flights to Las Vegas.
The World Series of Poker this year put up for grabs 62 bracelets in events varying from the 'minor' $1.000 tourneys to the super $10K Main Event that will hit the casino floor on July the 6th.
Ladies Event now opened men, Big One disappears.
The first tournament to open the 2013 edition of the World Series of Poker – right after the usual employees-only very first event taking place on May 29th – will be the event #2, a $5.000 No Limit Hold'em starting with its shuffle up and deal at 5pm (local time) on Wednesday, May 29th.
The first “real” $1.000 tournament, however, will be the Event # 3 starting right on the next day: a Single Re-Entry No Limit Hold'em tournament, in which players eliminated during the course of the Day 1A will be allowed to re-enroll during the following Day 1B .
The first change, however, will be noticeable already on Saturday, June 1st with Event # 6, the so-called “The Millionaire Maker”.
Although, seen the $1.5K buy-in, the Millionaire Maker might sound just like any other ordinary NLHE Single mode Re-Entry tournament, what makes this event a very specific one is the fact that its winner will go home with a guaranteed first prize of 1 million Dollars.
You read that right: 1,000,000 bucks. No less than that.
On the “M.I.A.” side we have to say that the WSOP 2013 will not see the the name of the Big One for One Drop on anyone’s plans, as the comeback of Esfandiari’s biggest shot is scheduled for 2014,
Yet, Event # 47 will still bring some charity into the WSOP circus, as the $ 111.111 One Drop High Roller will donate 3% of the fe organization promoted by Guy Laliberté.
Something similar to Event # 58, the Little One for One Drop: $ 1,111 buy-in, 111 of which will go to the One Drop.
2013 will also see the inclusion of a $5K Open Face Chinese Poker (without a bracelet for the winner though) and a Ladies Event finally open to men.
