Schedule Released for 2015 WSOP - First-Ever Online Bracelet and 68 Events

Share this

Caesars Entertainment just released the official schedule of events for the 2015 Annual World Series of Poker. This summer's massive poker festival will mark the 46th running of the world's largest poker extravaganza on the planet. All the fun and excitement start on Wednesday, May 27th at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

The schedule has a number of brand new events with a variety of buy-ins. The number of events has grown to a record 68 bracelet events that will all pave the way to the $10,000 Main Event!

The $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em Championship Main Event is going to have a different payout schedule than last's year's $10,000,000 guarantee to the champion as reported by us last week. The top 1,000 finishers in the event will take home cash if a minimum of 5,000 players register for the event.

Sunday, July 5th, is the day the Main Event kicks off with three Day 1 flights and the final table of nine players is expected to be reached on Tuesday, July 14th. The Main Event final table — The November Nine — will return to Las Vegas in November and ESPN and ESPN2 will carry live coverage as in previous years.

The 11 new events on the packed schedule:

  • Event #5: $565 Colossus No-Limit Hold’em (May 29-June 2)
  • Event #6: $1,000 Hyper No-Limit Hold’em (May 31-June 1)
  • Event #42: $1,500 Extended Play No-Limit Hold’em (June 20-23)
  • Event #43: $1,000 Super Seniors No-Limit Hold’em (June 21-23)
  • Event #53: $5,000 Turbo No-Limit Hold’em (June 26-28)
  • Event #55: $1,500 DraftKings 50/50 No-Limit Hold’em (June 27-29)
  • Event #60: $25,000 High Roller 8-handed PL Omaha (June 29-July 2)
  • Event #62: $1,500 Bounty No-Limit Hold’em (July 1-3)
  • Event #64: $1,000 Online No-Limit Hold’em (July 2-3)
  • Event #65: $777 Lucky 7’s No-Limit Hold’em (July 3-5)
  • Event #67: $10,000 Dealer’s Choice (July 3-5)

Event #5 (the $565 Colossus) will pack a $5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool and with the reasonable buy-in, it should easily bring the largest field the WSOP has even seen. And what's not to love about Event #65 (the $777 Lucky 7’s)? With a buy-in ranging close to the “Colossus” buy-in, the field could be huge and give the winner a big payday along with a gold bracelet.

Event #6 ($1,000 Hyper NLHE) and Event #53 ($5,000 Turbo NLHE) are set to play down and complete within two days. On the other side of the coin, Event #42 ($1,500 Extended Play NLHE) will feature 90-minute levels creating a slower structure.

This year's schedule has an event for players 65 and up — Event #43, the $1,000 “Super Seniors” NLHE event. The $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em Championship is on the schedule for players aged 50 and above — Event #40, June 19-21. The Ladies No-Limit Hold’em Championship (Event #53, June 26-28) is sticking with the $10,000 buy-in but women get a seat for $1,000.

DraftKings sponsors Event #55, a $1,500 “50/50” where half the field will finish in the money. Event #62, a $1,500 buy-in “Bounty” NLHE event, will see players receiving a $500 bounty for every player they knock out of the tournament. Dealer's Choice is the format for Event #67 which features a $10K buy-in with 19 different variants available as game choices.

There's even a first-ever online tournament, Event #64, a $1,000 buy-in tournament that starts online at on Thursday, July 2nd. The last two players standing will battle it out the following day at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.

Some of the returning events are set to kick off on Fridays which should lend to bigger fields, like the $1,500 “Millionaire Maker” (Event #16, June 5-8) and the $1,500 “Monster Stack” (Event #28, June 12-16).

Also on the schedule are the following favorites: The $50,000 Poker Players Championship (Event #44, June 21-25), the $1,111 Little One for One Drop (Event #61, June 30-July 3, and the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop (Event #58, June 28-29).

“If you’ve never thought about coming to Las Vegas for the WSOP, this is the year,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “Now more than ever, the WSOP has something for everyone and with this schedule we believe the value and the opportunity for player success exists in each and every event we are offering in 2015.”
