WSOP Puts Nine High Roller Events on 2020 Schedule

WSOP Puts Nine High Roller Events on 2020 Schedule

This week’s additions to the upcoming World Series of Poker schedule consist of high-stakes buy-ins, typically referred to as High Roller tournaments. These require $25K or higher buy-ins.

The additions to the 2020 WSOP so far have been many. Last week’s announcement pertained to a variety of events, including Freezeout No Limit Hold’em events with buy-ins of more than $1K and a mystery bounty tournament.

This week, the bigger buy-in events are seen to be scattered throughout the multiple weeks of the series. Some of these were already announced, such as the $50K Poker Players Championship and the $250K Super High Roller. However, a few new ones are now official – four of them to be exact.

That brings the total of tournaments on the 2020 summer schedule thus far to 61.
