A few days ago, WSOP was announcing details of  the  Main Event, BIG 50 and Senior’s Event.

Other popular key events like the Millionaire Maker, Monster Stack, Double Stack, Tag Team, Colossus, Crazy Eights, Mini Main Event, Little One for One Drop and The Closer also have now their respective dates on the 2020 WSOP calendar.

2019 Best Sellers are back

Along with the previously announced tournaments (BIG 50, Seniors & Main Event), the 12 that were presented now proved to be the most popular events of the WSOP.

The 2019 WSOP notably featured huge field sizes in these signature events: The Main Event (8,569), Big 50 (28,371), Deepstack No-Limit Hold’em (6,150), Millionaire Maker (8,809), Double Stack (6,214), Monster Stack (6,035), Crazy Eights (10,185), Seniors Championship (5,916), Colossus (13,109), Deepstack Championship (6,140), Mini Main Event (5,521) and Little One for One Drop (6,248) for a combined astounding 111,267 entries.

A total of 187,298 players entered the 2019 WSOP, creating a $293,183,345 prize pool.

To accommodate the expected number of participants, WSOP will set up over 500 poker tables across 200,000 square-feet of ballroom space.

Schedule for other popular events namely the Heads-up Championship and The Poker Players Championship are yet to be released and a full schedule is expected to be announced in early 2020.

More events to be announced

Instead of disclosing the entirety of the schedule, WSOP has been doing partial announcements to effectively market their events.

“While we are still putting together the 2020 WSOP schedule in its entirety, we have cemented the key No-Limit Hold’em events that anchor it all,” said WSOP Vice President Jack Effel.

“We hope this announcement right before the holidays can help you lock in travel plans so you can join us at the Rio in Las Vegas for the 51st running of the WSOP. We will continue to fill out the rest of the schedule and provide updates as we progress.”

Pre- registration won’t open until all events have been determined and approved by regulators.

All of the announced events were all previously held in last years’ WSOP and all the scheduled dates are subject to change.
