WSOP 2024
The 2024 World Series of Poker is here

The 2024 World Series of Poker is finally here, starting on Tuesday and running for more than a month and a half in Las Vegas. The WSOP is hosted on the Strip at both Horseshoe and Paris, just like it was last year and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.

Tuesday's activities include the customary $500 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold'em first-day tournament and the $5,000 Champions Reunion No-Limit Hold'em Freezeout (8-Handed).

The first event ought to be enjoyable. With one exception, the brand-new event is a standard $5,000 freezeout (whoa, that's a real freezeout!). A complimentary entry into this summer's Main Event is awarded to the person who eliminates a previous WSOP Main Event winner.

Things will be considerably busy tomorrow when they are in their second days and two more tournaments start. Those tournaments are scheduled to run three and two days, respectively. They are Event #4: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better (8-Handed) and Event #3: $500 WSOP Kickoff No-Limit Hold'em Freezeout.

On the recently established WSOP Online platform, participants in Nevada, New Jersey, and Michigan can participate in 30 online bracelet events in addition to the 99 live bracelet events.

On July 3, the first of four starting flights—one every day for four days—takes place during the 2024 WSOP Main Event. There are four flights on Day 2, but Day 2A, 2B, and 2C will operate on July 7 and Day 2D, which is always the largest, will operate alone on July 8. Following that, on Day 3, the field combines, and the competition continues until July 17 with only one day break before the final table.

Recall that this year's regulations have altered for players aiming to climb the WSOP Player of the Year leaderboard by grinding. Playing as many tournaments as you can to earn as many cashes as you can in the hopes of earning enough points is no longer the goal.

WSOP believes that quality now outweighs quantity. Players can still compete in dozens of events to win the POY trophy, of course, but the leaderboard standings are now based solely on a player's top ten point performances. The most important thing to remember is that only one of those outcomes can come from an online event.
