2022 WSOP Schedule Released. All you need to know about World Series Of Poker

WSOP Schedule Released

The biggest Poker Carnival in the world, the World Series of Poker, is back again this year. After weeks of speculation and rumors, the official word from WSOP is out and the schedule has been released with the tournament starting from May 31 to July 20 on the Las Vegas strip. Another exciting news about this year’s event is that there won’t be any Coronavirus interference and players don’t need to provide proof for vaccination.

Last year’s WSOP was very sloppy and a bit different due to the Corona strike in America and the change in the format of the games. But this year, it has returned to its old format with the tournament coming at the old summer slot. Although there is a change of venue this time around from Rio All-Suite Hotel Casino to WSOP’s original home.

WSOP 2022 Full Schedule 

The tournament will kick off on 31st May with in-person registration, tournaments, satellites, and cash games. The first two bracelet events will have the same usual $100,000 high roller bounty right out of the gates and $500 casino Employees No-Limit Hold’em event.

Tournament of Champions 

With the return of the old method and slot, the most exciting and all-time favorite “The Tournament of Champions” will return and is set to take place on July 18-20. The Tournament of Champions will be the final event of the 53rd Summer Poker festival.

The prize pool of this event will be $1 Million. The tournament of Champions took place last time way back in 2010 but with a bigger prize pool and hype, the Tournament of Champions is touted to be the biggest attraction of the 53rd Annual Summer Poker Festival.

Last time Huck Seed won Tournament of Champions in 2010 and took $500,000 home but this time, the prize money is doubled and a wait of 12 years makes Tournament of Champions even more special.

Broadcasting, Vaccination, Ambassador, etc.

The 2022 World Series of Poker is set to return to its old method and this time around there are no exceptions due to Coronavirus. Firstly players don’t need to be vaccinated in order to participate in tournaments and face masks are not compulsory as well.

Hollywood Actor Vince Vaughn will be the face of the event and serve as Master of Ceremonies. Interestingly he himself would participate in some WSOP events which definitely is going to make big headlines. 

Unfortunately for players with a change in venue, there won’t be big parking stations and people will have a hard time finding the right station. Although there are many commercial parking stations near Horseshoe where players can park their vehicles.

Day 1 coverage will start from Paris’ convention center where most of day 1 events are set to take place. Fortunately, the Bally’s and Paris convention center spaces are interconnected so players will not have many problems in shifting the stations.

Like old times, PokerGo and CBS Sports Network have Broadcasting rights for this year’s World Series of Poker. 18 Bracelet event final tables will be live-streamed on PokerGo and whole 15-hour coverage will be provided. Although the official Broadcasting schedule is yet to be announced.
