Written By: Maya Michaels | February 18, 2013 | Posted In Poker News

Caesars Entertainment, the one responsible for the yearly World Series of Poker (WSOP) tournament series Corporation, has publicised that the 44th edition of the land-based behemoth is scheduled to occur for 18 days starting on May 29.

The WSOP goes back to 1970 and this 2013’s edition from the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas will be featuring 62 bracelet activities, one more than the past year, and be solely shown on ESPN.

Executive Director for the WSOP, Ty Stewart, said “Dreams are dealt each year at the WSOP,”

“From the opening weekend where we will make yet another millionaire to the main event, which awards the largest single prize in the world, the WSOP is an annual affirmation about the strength and global appeal of the game.”

Among the focus of this year’s WSOP will be a $1,500 buy-in no-limit hold‘em event scheduled to occur on June 1 with the winner leaving with a cash prize of $1 million and this event is referred to as the Millionaire Maker.

The 44th annual WSOP is to end with its $10,000 buy-in no-limit hold‘em major affair starting on July 6. Similar to this past year, this game will temporarily stop on July 15 when the final 9 players have been identified with play planned to continue in November.

Tournament Director for the WSOP, Jack Effel, said “Bring your bankroll, whatever it is, and come have the time of your life,”

“We think this is the most diverse schedule we’ve ever had and we’ll be ready for an all-time turn-out at the 44th annual WSOP.”

A statement from the WSOP read “The 2013 WSOP marks the 44th running of the game’s most prestigious annual tournament,”

“In 2012, the WSOP generated 74,766 entries, [which was] the second-most ever, from 101 different nations. Players competed for more than $222 million in prize money, [which was] the most ever, as a total of 61 championship gold bracelets, globally recognised as the game’s top prize, were awarded.”
