The World Series of Poker is considered to be the biggest and most prestigious poker tournament in the world and poker players from all across the globe mark their calendars to ensure they attend the tournament without fail. The WSOP has made it a practice to release its tournament schedule as early as possible give players as much time as possible to attend.
The WSOP recently released the official dates for the 2015 World Series of Poker which will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Starting on the 27th of May and finishing on the 14th of July, the 46th Annual WSOP will take place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and will end with a $10,000 Main Event.
The WSOP did not publish the entire tournament schedule but made sure it released dates for some of its major tournaments. The top prize for the 2015 WSOP main event will once again be $10 million like last year. Martin Jacobson from Sweden was the 2014 WSOP champion and walked away with the second highest haul in main event history.
Some of the other events featuring on this year’s schedule include the Millionaire Maker which has a $1500 buy-in and a $1 million guarantee prize which will take place on the 5th and 6th of June; the Monster Stack which has a $1500 buy-in and takes place on 12th and 13th of June; the Seniors Championship which takes place on the 19th of June and has a $1000 buy-in; the Ladies Championship which takes place on the 25th of June and has a $10,000 buy-in with a 90% discount offered to ladies; a ONE DROP high roller on 28th June with a $111,111 buy-in and a Little One for ONE DROP that takes place on 30th June and has a buy-in for $1,111.
The Millionaire Maker and the Monster Stack turned out to be a huge success in 2014 and drew a massive amount of players and WSOP officials believe that it could turn out to be even better in 2015. In a statement, WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said
We believe the WSOP is uniquely able to deliver the big event with life-changing money for some and a life-experience for all. We are going to proudly stage the kinds of events which draw players from all around the world while also staying true to our heritage of contesting all variants of poker.
