Caesars Entertainment announced Wednesday the 53rd World Series of Poker (WSOP) daily event schedule for 2022. Following a 17-year run at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, the WSOP is moving to the Las Vegas Strip for the first time at Bally’s, which is in the process of being rebranded as Horseshoe, and Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and will feature the WSOP’s inaugural Master of Ceremonies, Vince Vaughn. 

Doors will open Tuesday, March 31, with the event concluding on Wednesday, July 20. The WSOP Main Event, the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship, will be held July 3 to 16 at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas. This move allows the event to gain capacity, with more than 200,000 square feet and 600 poker tables. 

Moreover, after being held in the fall last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year players will not have to wear masks, in accordance with current health guidelines. Vaccine proof will no longer be required.

WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said in a statement: “We’re ready to welcome players from all over the world to our housewarming party at Bally’s, soon-to-be Horseshoe, and Paris. The schedule is jam-packed with first-class events, and we expect this to be the biggest and most anticipated WSOP yet”. 

The WSOP schedule attempts to widen its offer for all types and skill levels of poker players. Buy-ins range from $400 to $250,000. While No-Limit Hold’em is the most popular game, tournaments are offered in everything from Seven-card Stud to 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball to Dealer’s Choice, in which players can choose from a list of 20 poker variants. 

Highlights from the schedule include:  

  • The Housewarming, June 2-7, a $500 No-Limit Hold’em event with a $ million guaranteed prize pool, set for the first weekend of the series. 

  • Super High Roller No-limit Hold’em (June 23-25), the biggest buy-in event of the series at $250,000

  • Million Dollar Bounty (July 2-6), a $1,000 No-limit Hold’em event, in which players will draw for a random prize for every player they eliminate, starting on Day 2 of the tournament. One bounty will be worth $1 million.

  • Tournament of Champions (July 18-20), a free No-limit Hold’em event with a $1 million prize pool limited to players who win bracelets at this year’s WSOP or on the WSOP Circuit season. (The WSOP awards trophy bracelets for tournament victories)

The event will be broadcasted on CBS Sports Network, with at least 15 hours of Main Event coverage. Daily event coverage will be streamed throughout the series on the subscription video service PokerGO.

When booking early, entrants of the WSOP bracelet event can enjoy reduced hotel room rates at Bally’s and Paris, as well as all Caesars Entertainment resorts in Las Vegas.  

The WSOP also said the WSOP Europe will be held again at King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, from October 12 to November 2. The tournament will include 15 gold bracelet events, including 10,000 euro buy-in Europe Main Event and a 50,000 euros High Roller event.
