2011 World Series of Poker Line Up

January 28, 2011

The official 2011 WSOP schedule has been announced, and the series will commence on May 31st and run through July 19th. Jack Link’s Beef Jerky will be the presenting sponsor again, and the venue will once again be the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino located in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. ESPN will have exclusive press rights, and there will be a total of 58 WSOP bracelets to be won—that’s one more gold bracelet than last year.

The opening event will take place at 5:00 p.m. on May 31, 2011 and will feature a new event—the $25K NLH event will be a heads up championship open to a max 256 player field.

The opening weekend also includes a $1K NLH event that is expected to see at least 6,000 players, as is typical of past tournaments. Following weekends in June will also offer low buy-in events popular among the general weekend tournament-goers.

The Main Event will feature the $10K NLH Championship to start on the 7th of July at noon and reach the final players on Tuesday, July 19th. At this time, play will be suspended until Tuesday, November 5th.

Jack Effel, WSOP Tournament Director for the sixth year in a row, says, “Something for everyone is the best way to describe the 2011 World Series of Poker schedule. It’s staggering to think that last year alone the WSOP hosted nine of the 17 largest tournaments in poker history. We had 44 events produce more than a $1 million prize pool, so we can’t wait to get at it again and offer players at all levels the best poker action on the planet.”

2011 WSOP Pre-registration will be available at the Main Cage in the Rio Casino and online at wsop.com starting February 7th.
