WSOP 2022 Schedule Announced With 88 Bracelet Events

The World Series of Poker has announced the official schedule for 2022. As you might know, after being hosted at Rio Hotel and Suit for 17 years straight, the WSOP will move to a new location for the 53rd iteration of the series.

Two venues will host players in Las Vegas this year. These will be Paris Casino and the Bally’s, which is currently in the process of rebranding and will take up the name Horseshoe to honor the legendary Las Vegas casino where it all started.

World Series at the Heart of the Strip

For the first time, the legendary poker series will be moving into the very heart of Sin City as both venues are located on the fabled Las Vegas strip.

This should help create even more buzz around the series, although it’s hardly in need of any, being the biggest poker event in the world.

This year, the WSOP is back to its traditional time slot, so the series will kick off on May 31 with the Casino Employees event and roll on from there, wrapping up on July 22.

There are 88 bracelet events on this year’s schedule, so players can look forward to some great action on the felt.

What’s more, the 2022 WSOP has the potential to be the biggest one yet, as new venues combined host over 600 tables.

One piece of information that some players will certainly be happy about is the fact that vaccine mandates are gone. Players won’t need to present the proof of COVID-19 vaccination to be able to participate in any of the events.

WSOP 2022 Highlight Events

Every year, there are a few World Series of Poker tournaments that create the most buzz and attract the biggest crowds. By the looks of things, 2022 will be no different as there are quite a few events poker fans can look forward to:

  • The Millionaire Maker, Colossus, and Monster Stack are back on the docket
  • $1,000,000 Tournament of Champions – a freeroll for all 2022 bracelet and gold ring winners
  • Poker Hall of Fame Bounty with the symbolic buy-in of $1,979

WSOP Online Bracelet Events

Although the WSOP is back to its land-based tradition in full force, players will still get a chance to compete for online poker bracelets as well.

Every Sunday for the duration of the series, there will be one bracelet event taking place. There are also “double bracelet days” scheduled for the summer, taking place on June 5 and on July 10 and 17.

Full WSOP 2022 Schedule

With 88 bracelets up for grabs this summer, Las Vegas promises heaps of great action. While the kickoff is still a few month away, it’s always good to start planning early.

To help with that, we’re bringing you the full schedule of 2022 WSOP events as well.

Getting Ready for the WSOP 2022

Now that you have the important details about the World Series of Poker 2022, we're bringing you some useful tips and advice to make your trip and your stay in Las Vegas more enjoyable.

Flights & Accommodation

The first thing you need to figure out is when you want to go and how long you want to stay. If you’re not from the US, the trip can be quite expensive on its own, so you want to start looking for good deals as soon as possible.

You can get your plane tickets at a discounted price if you book well ahead of time.

So, if you want to go, start looking now and check what’s available for the dates you’re planning. There are some amazing deals out there if you book a few months ahead.

The same goes for accommodation. Once the WSOP 2020 is in town, prices will go up and it will be harder to find a place with a good location. So try to book your place well ahead of time and get that out of your mind.

If you’re traveling with some friends, you should look into renting a house and splitting costs. There are some great places you can get at more than reasonable prices, and if you pull your money together, you’ll get a much better deal than if you were all paying for accommodation on your own.

Plan in advance what you will play

Maybe you want to hit deep stack tournaments, or you feel like you have an edge in turbo structures, or want to get into the smallest possible rake events, you can find it all in the World Series of Poker.

If you want to maximize your EV and choose the most profitable tournaments from the WSOP schedule, you need to research what you are planning to play.

On top of that, during WSOP, other Las Vegas casinos also offer various series, where you can find a lot of smaller tournaments, so it makes sense to check it out as well.

This will help you plan your bankroll and find the best possible games. So instead of trying to play as much as you can, pick your tournaments and play only the good ones!

Early Registration

Even if you’ve never been to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker, you’d likely seen vlogs from some of the popular players during the recent years. In some of those vlogs, you can see that registration lines for certain events can be absolutely mental.

The WSOP will open certain smaller buy-in tournaments for early registration in March/April, and you’ll be able to do it online.

If you already know what events you want to play and want to ensure your seat on a particular day, you should definitely take advantage of the early registration feature.

After all, there is so much to do in Vegas, whether it’s playing poker or just checking out what the city has to offer.

Stay within your bankroll during the WSOP schedule

While playing the WSOP Main Event can be thrilling, you should not jump to this tournament if you do not have sufficient funds and risk a big part of your poker bankroll taking one shot.

However, instead of buying-in directly, you can participate in many satellites during the series and win your seat in the big one. Also, you have an option to sell a part of your shares and still have an unforgettable experience in Las Vegas without breaking the bank.

If none of these helps, do not be harsh on yourself and choose cheaper tournaments. These have much smaller fields and very few professional poker players, so it drastically reduces the variance and gives you a way to build that bankroll.

Learn to rest and keep your energy

Long tournament series, just like the WSOP schedule suggests, require a lot of energy and concentration.

So instead of partying all the time, you should take such a trip seriously and do everything that can help you increase the chance to succeed. To mention a couple of things:

  • Get a good night's sleep – probably one of the most important parts of being able to focus and play long sessions, so make sure to rest before playing.
  • Excercise – that is not a problem in Las Vegas since most hotels have a gym, and even if you don‘t find one, you can easily exercise simply in your room and increase your energy level.
  • Eat healthy food – it is harder to stick to healthy habits while traveling, but when you know that it can make a difference from almost sleeping at the table to making profitable decisions when your opponents are barely keeping eyes open, it should be enough motivation to do that.

Even if that does not look like much at the moment, it will be a huge help in the long run.

Prepare for WSOP schedule

If you are not used to playing in live games, it makes sense to practice and play at least a couple of tournaments in your local casino before visiting the World Series Of Poker.

It is worth brushing up your strategy because you could be up against the top players if you are not particularly lucky with your table draw. Therefore, now it is a good time to join a poker training site and go to 2020 WSOP fully prepared.

Also, you can take advantage of poker software to prepare for the games, so everything is up to you!

Have some fun

Last but not least, enjoy your time in Las Vegas and have fun.

Do not rush playing, do not try to impress others by fancy moves you see on TV or go out of line. You are not here to impress others, so enjoy the moment and play as good as you can.

On top of that, do not forget to visit at least a couple of attractions and actually have some fun to fully enjoy your trip. Resting and taking your mind from the game can help you a lot, especially if you are in for a longer stay.
