World Series of Poker

p_41247_1_gallerybigI would really love to go to Las Vegas this summer! A while ago the schedule for World Series of Poker 2016 was released and this year the tournament series will include even more poker events! The tournament will take place at Rio All-Suit Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas as usual between 31st of May and 18th of July. The final table in Main Event will be played in October/November and what joy it must to be one of the nine that will take their seats…. This year I’ve read that Main Event will have more starting chips than before. All $10 000 events will have 50 000 in starting chips.

Another great thing about this year’s tournaments is that more places will be paid. The payout will increase to 15% of the field, before it was 10 %.

I read this about the changes at

– Revamping the Places Paid in events – to increase payouts to 15% of the field.
– In the Money Earlier – With payouts increasing to 15% of the field, wsop expect to reach the money earlier in events.
– New Start Times – The majority of events have been to 11am and 3pm starts – up one hour from previous.
– Five Times Starting Chips – All $10,000 buy-in events this year will get 50,000 starting chips – including the Main Event
– Structure Tweaks – WSOP have provided structure sheets for each event on the schedule page.
