WSOP Reveals 2020 Summer Championship Event Dates

WSOP Reveals 2020 Summer Championship Event Dates

Every few weeks, the World Series of Poker executives release another set of tournaments for the WSOP 2020 summer schedule. Just last week, another 16 events were added to the growing schedule, completing the championship portion of it.

WSOP 2020 now has more than 30 tournaments on the schedule, complete with times and dates, buy-ins and starting chip stacks, levels and reentry options.

Updates are coming very regularly now. The initial announcement revealed the core dates of the summer series in early December, with another 12 tournaments announced barely a week later.

Little more than one week into 2020, the WSOP revealed the next set of tournaments – 15 championship events with $10,000 buy-ins and one requiring $50,000.

A Variety of Championships

There will actually be a total of 17 championship events at the 2020 WSOP, including the WSOP Main Event, which is always played with No Limit Texas Hold’em. But as history has it, poker champions don’t always play that variation, so more options must be on the table, so to speak.

This year, there will be 24 poker variations included in these championship events. The extra games come from mixed game events like the Poker Players Championship.

Let’s look at the list of championship events only for WSOP 2020:

–June 3: $10K Omaha Hi-Lo 8-or-Better (freezeout)

–June 6: $10K Seven-Card Stud (freezeout)

–June 8: $10K Short Deck Hold’em (one reentry allowed)

–July 1-3: $10K NLHE Main Event (freezeout)

–July 2: $10K WSOP Online NLHE (freezeout)

The Poker Players Championship had been a mix of eight games, but this year will open it to nine games. The new addition to the list is No Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw.

The WSOP also announced that there will be a dedicated leaderboard to track points in only the championship events listed above. Players will earn points, similarly to the Player of the Year leaderboard. At the end, there will be “prizes up for grabs for the winner.”
