Many poker fans are eagerly waiting for this year’s edition of the World Series of Poker. This summer, it will be one of the highlights, starting May 31 and finally ending on July 19, 2022.
The event will congregate the best players from different parts of the world to showcase their skills.
The venue for this special is set to be the Horseshoe Hotel (formerly Bally's) and Paris Las Vegas. There is a lot of anticipation for this year’s poker tournament as it will be the event's debut at this venue. In previous years, the games would occur at the Rio Hotel and Casino. For seventeen years, that has been the case, nearly clocking two decades of this legendary event.
The two new venues provide 600 poker tables, ideal for a large tournament such as this. They cover about 150,000 square feet providing ample space for players, officials, and fans of the event. The Las Vegas monorail will ease movement between the two venues and other properties around the area, which is convenient.
The full schedule was released towards the end of February this year. The main event will have four starting flights. There will be 88 bracelet events throughout the tournament, with a detailed list of online events. Vince Vaughn, an avid poker player, and actor will be the master of ceremony.
Other highlights in the schedule include the $400 Colossus and the Tournament of Champions, exclusive to ring and bracelet winners only.
Participants can register in person or online a few weeks before the tournament commences. The required documents for registration are a valid photo ID and your Caesars Rewards Loyalty card.
International players can also apply but must bring additional documents. These include identification and a separate form showing a valid place of stay in the city or a Las Vegas utility bill.
How to Pay
The event’s management allows several modes of payment to give applicants flexibility. You can pay via cash or cards. They also allow cheques and wire transfers. Players can also use Rio gaming or Tournament Buy-in chips as a mode of payment.
It is important to note that players who use card payments will also need valid identification matching the card details they intend to use. Most cards will pass for payment, including Amex, Visa, Discover, and Mastercard.
