Twenty-Five $1,500 Buy-In Events Included On 2020 WSOP Schedule

0
A total of 25 $1,500 buy-in tournaments are included on the 2020 World Series of Poker schedule.

On Wednesday, the World Series of Poker added another 19 events to the official 2020 WSOP summer schedule, all of which will be offered at a price point of $1,500.

“We have found the $1,500 price point to be the sweet spot in poker, perfectly balancing affordability, field size, and prize pool to offer great value for participating players,” said Jack Eiffel, WSOP Vice President. “As we continue to cater our offerings to find something for everyone, the $1,500 buy-ins remain a core staple of the WSOP.”

In total, the World Series of Poker will be offering 25 gold bracelet tournaments at the $1,500 price point.

The $1,500 buy-in will encompass 18 different disciplines, 12 of which will have just a single entry, embracing the WSOP’s “concerted effort” to offer players more freezeout tournaments. For the remaining 13 events, players are afforded no more than a single re-entry per flight. All events will start with a minimum of 25,000 in chips, which aims to provide value for the player but means something different to each tournament depending on its structure.

In addition to offering a wide variety of $1,500 events this year, the WSOP is giving the price point its own dedicated leaderboard. Players dedicated to grinding out the slate of $1,500 events will earn points for every cash and, unlike some of the previous years’ WSOP POY awards, there will be “prizes up for grabs for the winner.” More information on the $1,500 leaderboard, as well as the overall 2020 WSOP Player of the Year award, will be announced prior to the start of the 2020 summer series.

Many of the WSOP’s marquee events can be found as a part of the $1,500 series of events, including the Millionaire Maker, Monster Stack, and Closer, all of which had been previously announced.

Also part of the series is the buzz-worthy Mystery Bounty tournament, in which a single bounty may be worth as much as $250,000. Also, the Fifty Stack, a No Limit Hold’em tournament with 50,000 in starting chips and 30-minute levels.

New to the 2020 schedule are three different bounty tournaments including the return of the popular No Limit Hold’em Super Turbo Bounty ($500 bounties with 20-minute levels), as well as both a No Limit Hold’em and a Pot-Limit Omaha bounty tournament.

Mixed games are well represented at the $1,500 buy-in as well with Omaha, Seven Card Stud, and 2-7 variants being represented, as well as H.O.R.S.E, the Dealer’s Choice, and Eight Game Mix all returning to the schedule.

The 2020 WSOP is set to take place from May 26 through July 15 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
