Early draft of WSOP schedule accidentally leaked

It appears that an early draft of the 2018 World Series of Poker schedule made its way online, with some interesting new events expected.

With 2017 drawing to a close it will soon be time to turn our attention to poker in 2018, and yesterday poker fans were briefly given a glimpse of what the biggest festival of the year will look like (by accident).

An incomplete preliminary schedule for the 2018 WSOP briefly appeared online this week, before being removed again. Members of the ClubPoker forum were able to screen shot the schedule before that happened. 

Thus far the big changes seem to be the inclusion of several Super Turbo events, both a $50,000 and $100,000 Super High Roller in addition to the $1 million Big One for One Drop and a curiously titled '$1,000/$2,000/$3,000 Boost Your Stack' event.

There are 77 events in total, 12 of which are scheduled after the Main Event, which currently has a start date of July 2nd. Of those 12 events the aforementioned Big One for One Drop appears to be the final one. 

Right now the schedule does not have a $10,000 Six Max Championship, which would almost certainly suggest that if this is a legitimate leak, it is probably a first draft and not a final one, because it is such a popular event.

Take it with a pinch of salt, it may not even be legitimate, although WSOP Twitter manager KevMath said it was an unofficial schedule which was subject to change and the Hendon Mob have already updated their tournament listings with it. You can see the screenshots below, courtesy of Club Poker:
