Recommend this!

If you’re a fan of big buy-in tournaments and high-stakes poker, then you’ll love the schedule for the 2011 World Series of Poker (WSOP), which was released this week. Plus, there are plenty of events for poker players who are on a much more limited bankroll. Let’s take a look at the 2011 WSOP schedule.

Fifty-eight bracelet events will comprise this year’s WSOP, which begins on May 31st and runs through July 19th. The first open gold bracelet awarded will be quite a spectacle, as a brand new $25,000 Heads-Up No Limit Hold’em Championship will play out. The event (#2), which takes place on the WSOP’s opening day, will likely attract the very best players the game has to offer and is capped at 256 runners.

The $50,000 Poker Player’s Championship, which served as the first open gold bracelet event in 2010, moves to the tail end of the 2011 WSOP. The tournament (#55) gets underway on July 2nd and will run for five days. Its players will be battling it out in eight games: Limit Hold’em, Omaha High-Low Split Eight or Better, Seven Card Razz , Seven Card Stud, Seven Card Stud High-Low Split Eight or Better, No Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha, and 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball. November Nine member Michael Mizrachi is its reigning champion.

A brand new $2,500 Ten-Game Six-Handed event (#29) will get underway on June 16th. Four days later, another new addition to the WSOP schedule will occur, a $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Six-Handed tournament (#35).

The $10,000 Main Event will start on July 7th with the first of four starting days. Then, the field will play down to its final nine on July 19th and the group will reconvene on November 5th to determine a winner. You can catch the Main Event final table on ESPN on November 8th. Last year, Jonathan Duhamel became the Main Event’s first Canadian winner ever and booked nearly $9 million.

Hard stop times will be introduced this year. Events will play a maximum of 10 levels on any day in what is being billed as a “player comfort” issue. Here is the complete 2011 WSOP schedule:
