The 47th Annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) started on schedule at their usual location, the world renowned Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Action started May 31, 2016 with Live Action in the Green Section of the Pavilion room, Single Table Satellites, and Daily Deep Stacks then immediately followed on June 1 with Mega Satellites and the official beginning of Event #1: $565 Casino Employees’ No-Limit Hold’em.
June 2 brought back Event #2A: $565 Colossus II No-Limit Hold’em with a total of six starting flights with a sweet million dollars guaranteed to the winner and a guaranteed prize pool of $7 million. And the Colossus will continue through to Flights #2B, 2C, 2D, 2E, and culminate with Flight #2F on Saturday, June 4.
But not to get ahead of myself, for now I will just tell you that this year’s World Series of Poker promises to be as exciting as last years, if not more. After all, this year features a total of 69 events with buy-ins as low as $565 and all the way up to $111,111.
According to a tweet by Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) “You guys will LOVE the changes and how they affect play in the tourneys. Way more play when it matters most in the middle and late stages.”
As always, there will be lots of money, and gold bracelets won during a total of 50 consecutive days of poker action. And the Main Event will ultimately get down to the Final 9 players who will return October 30 and battle it out for the highly coveted World Series of Poker Championship Bracelet.
Hope to see ya’ll there at the Final Table.
