2011 WSOP Schedule and Dates Announced

We'll get to see the likes of Sara Underwood (and others) at the WSOP beginning May 31, 2011.

It was announced today that the 2011 World Series of Poker (WSOP) will take place from Tuesday, May 31, 2011 through Tuesday, July 19, 2011.

The first tournament begins the day after Memorial Day and the 2011 WSOP Main Event will begin on Thursday, July 7th (with four scheduled Day 1’s).

Ending any speculation to the contrary, the WSOP will once again be held in the Convention Center of the Rio.

Also announced is a new provision where play will be stopped after 10 levels have been completed for every tournament.

The full tourney scheduled will be released in January.

    As is now customary, the WSOP Main Event will be the final tournament of the annual WSOP, with its conclusion slated for Tuesday, July 19, after reaching the final table of nine players.

    Is this the end of the November Nine?

    Actually, as I pointed out, the words “November Nine” were never used. This could be a hint of the end of that concept.
