Someone think of a tagline for the thread...


World Series of Poker 2021: September 30th - November 22nd

What is it?

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is the biggest and most "prestious" tournament series in Poker. Begun in 1970 as a series of Cash Games by Benny Binion at the Horseshoe Casino, (it took on its freezeout structure the next year), it has grown into a series of 40+ events spanning over the period of 2 months. While it has expanded with its European tournament series, The main World Series of Poker tournaments are normally held in Las Vegas during the summer. Obviously with COVID-19 the events last year were held online, this year they've decided there will be live events starting October 1st (there were also 33 tournaments played online but that ended on Sept 12th).

Where is it being held?

Rio Hotel and Casino. This is the last year of the contract between the WSOP and the Rio Hotel and Casino and there are rumors it may move to Bally's next year. This Facebook Post by the Valley National 8-Ball League Association mentions that their contract with Bally's was canceled due to the WSOP moving to Bally's next year.

VNEA Begins New Chapter At The Westgate Las Vegas!
VNEAís long-term contract with Ballyís Hotel & Casino was suddenly canceled by Ballyís as a result of the World Series Of Poker (WSOP) moving from Rio to the Ballyís/Paris properties in 2022 and beyond.

COVID-19

You will need full proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to attend the event. There is no exception. You cannot use a negative COVID test to enter. In the State of Nevada if you have an event that requires proof of vaccination the event does not require masks. However, since masks requirements are still required within the casino you still need a mask for:

* Walking around during breaks
* When being moved to another table (I'm assuming this is between hall ways but I'm guessing they'll make you put it on regardless of where you're moved?)
* In the Rio Hallways
* Anytime you are not near the poker table while you're indoors.

Lots of poker players complaining about these rules because they're a bunch of anti-vaxxers. Or FREEEEDOM people.

Events

There will be 88 bracelet events. I originally posted the full list but it made this OP really long so if you want to see it check it out here:

https://www.wsop.com/tournaments/

Unique Events

quote:

Event #4 "The Reunion" needs 10,000 people to play over the 3 first days to make the $5,000,000 guarantee.
Event #20 Flip & Go NLHE: First hand everyone is all-in. They get 3 cards and they pick 2. (So kinda like a Pineapple All-in Bomb Pot). Whoever wins the table makes it into the money and the rest of the tournament is played like a regular NLHE event
Event #79 Poker HoF Bounty tournament: Anyone who is in the Poker HoF plays for free, everyone else pays $1979. If you knock one of the HoF players out you get a dollar amount equal to the year they were inducted into the HoF.
Event #82 $250K Super High Roller NLHE event. (Pretty sure this is the largest NLHE event that isn't OneDrop)
Event #87 $100K High Roller NLHE event
Event #85 $50K High Roller NLHE event
Event #84 $50K High Roller PLO Event (Largest WSOP PLO event)
There's also a $25K HORSE event that's larger than the "Championship" HORSE event but it's not called a High Roller event. Additionally every game that's part of the 8-game format will have individual $10K Championship events.

Too rich for my blood

There are additional poker tournaments going on for those with less robust bankrolls
$300-$1600 Deepstack Championship @ The Venetian, Sep 27-Nov 28
$120-$600 Grand Poker Series 2021 @ The Golden Nugget Sept 28-Nov 23
$400-$3500 Wynn Fall Classic @ Wynn Casino Sep 30-Nov 21
$150-$1000 The Orleans Fall Poker Series @ The Orleans Casino Oct 1-Nov 5 (also anybody who makes a final table will be eligible for a freeroll Nov 3)

I don't know yet if I can go to Vegas.. I have a vacation planned at the end of October so if I do end up going it'll probably be at the end of the series in November.

Never been to WSOP before. Itís on my bucket list, but this year itís definitely not in the cards for me.

Hope to see some goons or formers goons take down a few bracelets.

Glad to see that this is starting back up. I went out to the WSOP twice, and while I never made much money there (except at the cheapo tournaments at like the Orleans), it was a fantastic experience-- kind of like seeing the Superbowl, except nobody's stopping you from getting out on the field yourself.

"So I was playing COD yesterday, and some flankenstein came up from behind and shot me."

I am flying out tomorrow and will be playing multiple events.

The first event is the event #8 the NLHE deepstack. I might play event #13 NLHE freezeout. I will also play the millionaire maker I think thatís event 17 but there is 2 starting days a 17a and a 17b and Iíll probably start the second day so I can have a day of rest.

Thatís all I have for now Iím sure I will play more as the series progresses snd I get drunker. We are staying in Vegas for 2 months.

I'm subscribed to Negreanu's youtube channel so I've been seeing some of his updates. Does anyone know if any other players are doing the same thing? It'd be interesting to watch

Are you I.N.R.I 's alt account?

I got knocked out of the freezeout yesterday and I did not make the money.

Millionaire maker is next but I am going to wait until Saturday to see if I want to play that one. That's day 1-b and should give me an idea of how many people will be in it.

Made the money in the millionaire maker. Short stacked and I am at loving tough table. Gonna need a miracle to last the rest of the day.

Forgot to add I sat at the same table as Mark Seif and got to talk to him about OJ. Which was surreal. I bluffed him out of a pot when I checked shoved on the river. Thatís my wsop highlight so far.

Yes! So I made the money in the millionaire maker and eeked out a small profit. I started getting a little worn down and actually feeling a little sick. So I took a few days off to get my body right and I feel a million times better. Iím gonna play in event #39 PLO 8 handed that starts. tomorrow. If that doesnít go well I might jump into the RAZZ event that starts on the 21st. I have always wanted to play on a RAZZ tourney.

It's like a misery factory; I like when it comes up in mixed games or whatever, but I can't imagine playing like a 3 day event of it.

I am out of the omaha 8 or better event. poo poo was wild and I was in way over my head.


There is a small chance I might play in this 10k HORSE I have a couple of friends willing to buy my action so I am currently debating if I should. If I chicken out and don't enter that I am for sure playing RAZZ tomorrow. If only they had a badugi event I could play in.
