December 29, 2010

World Series of Poker fans and participants can now make summer 2011 plans, as the WSOP 2011 dates have been announced. For those whose vacation plans revolve around the series, the 42nd annual WSOP will begin the day after Memorial Day, Tuesday, May 31, 2011 and will run for the 50 days following through Tuesday, July 19, 2011.

Once again the series will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in the Convention Center where the WSOP has called home since 2005. The Main Event will start on Thursday, July 7, 2011 featuring four starting days through July 10th.

The Main Event will play out to nine players and then halt play until November when the final nine players, otherwise known as the November Nine, will commence play until a single champion is determined. One definitive change for the 2011 series will be hard stop times. Players must bag and tag their chips after the maximum of 10 levels of play per day.

The complete schedule for the series including individual events, dates, times, and buy-ins will be announced in January, so tournament goers can start planning out their 2011 poker budget and saving up for their favorite WSOP events.
