The schedule has finally been revealed for the 2024 World Series of Poker. The 55th annual WSOP will run from 28 May to 17 July, with 99 gold bracelets to be awarded in person at the Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas.

This year’s festival will kick off with a new tournament: the $5,000 buy-in Champions Reunion No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout. Previous champions of the WSOP main event will be given a free entry, and contenders who knock out a former World Champion will be awarded a seat into the 2024 WSOP main event.

This year’s main event is set to run from 3-17 July, with four starting flights on offer and late registration open through Level 7, or around 4:40 p.m. on the two Day 2 flights held on 7 and 8 July.

The 2023 WSOP main event was the largest in poker history, with 10,043 entries creating a $93,399,900 prize pool. Georgia’s Daniel Weinman home the largest main event payout ever for the win, walking away with $12,100,000 and his second career gold bracelet.

“We’re proud to be Las Vegas’ original main event,” said Ty Stewart, SVP and executive director of the WSOP in the press release accompanying the schedule announcement.

“Records are made to be broken, so our motto this year is bigger and better. With our best schedule ever and more than 100 additional poker tables, we look forward to welcoming legends, first-timers, and everyone in between. If you’re a poker player, there is simply no experience on earth like the World Series of Poker.”

As Stewart mentioned, this year’s series will feature an increased amount of tables available for use. There will be nearly 700 tables in action in 2024, allowing for even more records to be broken.

The WSOP release of the main live schedule did not yet reveal any information about the online bracelet events that might be offered in 2024.

There are several new events on offer this time around, in addition to the Champions Reunion No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout.

Among the most exciting are the new $5,000 buy-in seniors high roller (event no. 65) that kicks off on 26 June, the first-ever $1,5000 buy-in no-limit hold’em and pot-limit Omaha double board bomb pot tournament beginning 15 June, and the PokerNews $600 deep stack championship on 25 June.

Daily deep stack players can win their way into that event if they finish inside the top 10 in a points race for those $200, $250, and $400 buy-in events held from 28 May through 24 June.

This year will also feature an Independence Day Celebration. The new three-day $800 buy-in no-limit hold’em event kicks off on Wednesday, 3 July, with the second starting flight falling on the Fourth of July.
