It is a very exciting time for poker players who can now start sharpening their poker skills after the recent announcement of the longest-running, richest, and the most prestigious poker series in the world, the annual World Series of Poker. The poker series which has been in existence for nearly half a century unveiled its 49th series schedule for the summer of 2018 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. While there are several additions and changes to the 2018 WSOP, the online poker segment will be an eye-catching series of events that will feature four bracelet events hosted by the WSOP website. This is a clear indication that internet gambling is on the verge of a revolution especially because of the fact that there is a lot of optimism that the interstate online poker liquidity agreement could be passed before the 2018 series comes to an end in the summer.
“With today’s announcement, we hope there is enough time to adjust your holiday wish list,” said Jack Effel, WSOP Tournament Director. “We feel very good about the multitude of offerings on the 2018 World Series of Poker schedule and look forward to welcoming everyone to the Rio in Las Vegas this summer.”
The WSOP tournament series is set to begin on May 29th and come to an end on the 17th of July with the series being kicked off by the satellites, cash games and tournament registration on May 29th. Many of the fan-favorite poker events have been retained in the schedule and they included the $1,500 Millionaire Maker that is scheduled for the 9th of June, $565 Colossus on June 2nd, $888 Crazy Eights for June 30th, the $50,00 Poker Players Championship for June 15th and not forgetting the $2,620 Marathon of June 11th. These aside, poker players will also be treated to a number of new and exciting World Series of Poker events including the $100,000 HIGH ROLLER No-Limit Hold’em, the $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty NL Hold ’em, the $50,000 HIGH ROLLER No-Limit Hold’em and the $1,500 THE CLOSER No-Limit Hold’em among many others.
Also, for the very first time since 2014, poker enthusiasts will see the return of the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop which is the most expensive and perhaps the most exciting poker tournament to enter in the history of American poker. The mind-boggling event that is tailored for bankroll giants kicks off a day after the Main Event is concluded on June 14th.
