2012 WSOP Dates Announced
Poker’s biggest summer event has just unveiled the 2012 schedule!
This year’s WSOP will feature 61 events, including the much-discussed $1 million Big One for One Drop Charity event. The $10,000 Champions events are back as well. There are several new preliminary events as well, including the first-ever WSOP re-entry event. On Saturday, June 2nd, the $1,500 buy-in No Limit Hold’em event with re-entries will get underway. If players bust on Saturday, they can re-enter Day 1B action on Sunday.
Other new and notable events include a $3,000 Heads-Up event that will include both No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha. New forms of No Limit Hold’em will get some time in the spotlight too with a $1,500 Ante Only event and a $2,500 four-handed No Limit Hold’em event.
The biggest news on the Main Event front is a new, shortened schedule which removed three days from the marathon schedule and will run from July 7th-16th. Thanks to the addition of 92 tables and the use of the Brasilia ballroom, the WSOP will now house 420 tables.
There will be no day off between Days 2 and 3 this year, and the Day 3 action will get underway on July 12th. The Main Event action will continue over the next five days as the field plays down to the final table. Once the final nine are set, there will once again be a break before the play down to a champion.
To accommodate the 2012 US Elections The final table will now play out one week earlier than the usual November 9 final table.
SunPoker will soon start running tournaments to secure seats to Main Events at the 2012 WSOP so get yourself ready as we prepare satellites and VIP packages for the summers largest event.
Now that the WSOP has released the dates, our team has set the wheels in motion to start planning a variety of events and packages for the 2012 Summer Tournaments!
