78 events, 13 taking place after the Main Event and a lot of new events for modest budgets and High Rollers alike.

Following a leaked early draft last week the official 2018 WSOP schedule was released last night, which mostly matched the leaked schedule with a few differences.

The 2018 World Series of Poker takes place between May 29 and July 17 with 78 bracelet events. The Main Event takes place between July 2 to July 14. 

The most notable change this year is that 13 bracelet events take place after the Main Event, rather than that being the culmination of the series. This includes a $1,500 event called 'The Closer' with a $1 million guarantee and the final event in the series is the returning $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop.

New additions to the schedule include:

  • $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty No Limit Hold’em
  • $100,000 High Roller No Limit Hold’em
  • $365 PLO GIANT
  • $1,000 DOUBLE STACK No Limit Hold’em
  • $565 ONLINE Pot Limit Omaha 6-Handed
  • $1,500 BOUNTY Pot Limit Omaha
  • $50,000 High Roller No Limit Hold’em

Once again there will be no November Nine and the series will be broadcast on ESPN and streamed on PokerGO. 

As always poker legend and former November Niner Kenny Hallaert has started his infamous WSOP spreadsheet and you can see the full schedule, which will soon include events from other venues in Vegas at the same time, right there.

    How do they track bounties in a live tournament?

    Players are usually given a special bounty chip that looks like a card protector and when they are eliminated, the dealer gives it to the player that bust them, which they can cash at the poker desk
