Live WSOP Festivals To Take Place in Las Vegas and Rozvadov In 2021
The 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) will run from September 30 to November 23 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. An online series, catering to both domestic and international players, will also get underway in July 2021.

While the full schedule of the live WSOP this fall is still being finalized, it is expected to include a charity event for frontline health workers. It will run during the opening weekend, alongside a $5 million-guaranteed “The Reunion” no-limit hold-em event, as well as a $25,000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. tournament.
The series will be headlined by the $10,000 Main Event, which will take place from November 4-14, featuring four Day 1s running from November 4-7.
Those keen on taking part in the upcoming series can now book a room at any Caesars Entertainment-owned resorts in Las Vegas, including the Rio. Caesars Rewards members can make reservations for as low as $60.

WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said they are looking forward to returning to the live felts and continue to deliver memorable experiences to the poker community. The WSOP team are hopeful that travel restrictions will not be as tight by the fall, though they also emphasized the need to follow minimum safety guidelines and protocols to protect everyone from the threat of COVID-19. They must also first obtain the necessary regulatory approvals for the events to proceed.
