WSOP schedule makers added several new events to the slate starting with the Series opener, the $5,000 Champions Reunion No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout. It should be loaded with Main Event champs since they get into the event for free. And all eyes will be on them, and not because they own the big ring — each champ will carry a bounty of a an entry into the Main Event on their backs.

“We’re proud to be Las Vegas’s original Main Event,” said Ty Stewart, SVP & Executive Director of the WSOP, in a press release. “Records are made to be broken, so our motto this year is bigger and better.

With our best schedule ever and more than 100 additional poker tables, we look forward to welcoming legends, first-timers and everyone in between. If you’re a poker player, there is simply no experience on earth like the World Series of Poker.”

New additions and old favorites

Several new events have been added to the 2024 schedule.

Seniors High Roller No-Limit Hold’em

Players ages 50 and older will have the option to play in a $5,000 new “high roller event,” a three-day contest that starts June 26.

Independence Day Celebration No-Limit Hold’em

A special three-day event to celebrate Independence Day will start July 3, with a second flight taking place on July 4. The WSOP missed an opportunity to have the event cost $1,776, but went with $800.

PokerNews Deep Stack Championship No-Limit Hold’em  

PokerNews, the PokerStars-owned site which provides chip counts and tournament summaries throughout the Series as its official media outlet, will sponsor the $600 deep stack championship on June 25.

Players can get into this tournament for free by playing and running deep in the daily $200, $250, or $400 deep stack tournaments running from May 28 to June 24.

The top 10 point earners each week will get complimentary seats into the $600 PokerNews Deep Stack Championship.

Special Evening $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em during Main Event

As Flight 1D of the Main Event occurs on Saturday, July 6, there will be a $1,000 buy-in Hold’em event at 7:00 p.m. that night for those who got bounced late.

$3,000 Mid-Stakes Championship No-Limit Hold’em

Also held during the Main Event for players who busted out of the big one but wanted to remain a part of the high-stakes action, this new four-day event begins on July 11 with a $3,000 buy-in.

Schedule again loaded with Championships

The slate of big buy-in events with “championship” in their titles begins May 30, with the $25,000 Heads-up Championship, which has a 64 player max.

There’s a total of 27 championship events this year, including the $10,000 Omaha HiLo 8 or Better Championship on June 1, the $10,000 Dealers Choice Championship on June 3, the Seven Card Stud Championship on June 15, the Razz Championship on June 19, and the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, a mixed-game event where the winner get their name on trophy named in Poker Hall of Fame inductee Chip Reese’s honor on June 23.

High Rollers have many opportunities

With nearly a dozen high roller events with buy-ins ranging from $25,000 to the Series most expensive event, the $250,000 Super High Roller contest, the WSOP will surely attract the whales and those who hunt them. These nose-bleeders kick on with the $25,000 High Roller Six Handed No-Limit Hold’em on June 6, with the Super High Roller Event taking place on June 21.

A $100,000 High Roller also takes place on June 18.

Satellites to all the events, including these high rollers, will take place during the Series, alongside a full slate of daily deep stack events. Players can get into these five-figure buy-in events for as little as $120.
