WSOP, World Series of Poker, Starts May 30, 2018

The WSOP, World Series of Poker, starts today May 30, 202018. There will be 78 poker events including 9 new events add to the roster. Over $200 million will be on tables this year. Only the creme de la crop of over 100,000 players will be fortunate to take home any of the cash, though. Poker pros and wannabees are bracing with edge of their seat action for the next crop of big winners. History is made every year with these new winners and seasoned champs. I’m wondering if Phil Ivey will appear here. He’s been laying low from the highly promoted tournaments lately.
Popular events like the Colossuss, the Millionaire Maker tournament, Monster Stack and Crazy Eights will come back. As noted above, there are nine new tournaments this year. Some of the tournaments will start after the Main Event including the Big One for One Drop, the $10,000 six max, the $50,000 high roller tourney and the $1,500 NLH with 15,000 starting chips and 30 minute levels. This year’s tournament concludes July14.
Most tournaments start at either 11 am or 15:00. Weekend tournaments are 10 am or 17:00.
Bracelet events will use the Big Blind Ante format. This format of playing has the big blind putting up the ante for the entire table. It’s hope this format speeds up the game. But there are detractors who feel a small stacked player who might be forced to go all-in at their turn with a poor hand. They would rather not put up the entire table’s ante and their stack into and lose. This is the first year of this and it will be interesting to see if it makes it to next year’s WSOP. Eight of the bracelet tournaments will use this method.
Two Daily Deepstack tourneys and several of the Mega Satellites as well as the weekend high roller events will use this new format.
