The World Series of Poker (WSOP) released their official schedule for the 2021 WSOP which takes place from 30 Sep to 22 Nov, 2021 at the Rio in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The WSOP confirmed that there will be 88 bracelet events but no online bracelet events. The schedule includes a nice mix of traditional poker events and some new ones.
The WSOP live poker tournament generally starts in May every year and ends up in July with the final table taking place in November. However, the WSOP had to cancel the usual schedule in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 threat.
The WSOP decided to reschedule the live poker tournament towards the end of the year as the Rio and event organizers are expected to be better prepared to pull off such a massive poker tournament with COVID-19 still lurking around. The WSOP released its schedule well in advance to enable poker players in America and around the world to plan accordingly as the WSOP attracts players from all over the world.
A poll was recently carried out on Twitter to see if poker players like the 2021 WSOP schedule or they hated it. The Twitter poll was posted by Kevin Mathers who has just over 36,000 followers on the social media platform.

The poll results showed that 54.7 percent of all voters were happy with the 2021 WSOP schedule, 41.6 percent voted Meh which is chat language for don’t really care or not interested and only 3.7 percent said they hated the summer schedule. The fact that the majority of voters loved the schedule does not come as a surprise as the WSOP has done a good job in putting together a nice blend of low stakes, mid-stakes and high stakes poker events.
