The WSOP released a full schedule of events for its 2021 WSOP tournament which is set to take place once again at the Rio in Las Vegas, Nevada from Sep 30 to Nov 23.
The WSOP confirmed the dates earlier but this week came out with a full schedule of events to enable poker players from around the world to make plans for which events they want to play.
The live poker scene is slowly returning to action in Las Vegas after being wiped out due to the covid-19 pandemic.

Some of the new events that players can look forward to include the ‘The Reunion’ which starts on Oct 1 and has a $500 buy-in and a guaranteed prize pool of $5 million, the Heads Up No-Limit Hold’em Championship which used to have a $10,000 buy-in now has a $25,000 buy-in and a cap of 64 players; the Poker Hall of Fame (PHoF) Bounty which starts on Nov 17 and pays tribute to living members of the PHoF.
The PHoF event is open to everyone and has a buy-in of $1979 but members of the PHoF will be able to freeroll into the tournament. Some of the other new events include the Deuce to Seven Single Draw NL Returns on Oct 31 and the Nosebleed PLO on Nov 19.
Popular WSOP events such as the Colossus, Millionaire Maker, The Closer, Double Stack and Monster Stack will also feature in the 2021 WSOP schedule.
