2016 World Series of Poker Schedule Released

The 2016 World Series of Poker Schedule has been released and includes a number of changes that are explored below.

    Places Paid:  The majority of bracelet (and Deepstack) events will now payout 15 percent of the field, up 50% from what was WSOP standard.  The minimum payout is expected to be one-and-a-half times the buy-in.

    In the Money Earlier: With payouts increasing, many events are expected to reach the money on Day 1.

    Start Times: Moved up one hour: Most (not all) events are on a new time schedule, with the first event of the day scheduled for 11am and the late events now to begin at 3pm. Deepstacks now at 2pm, 5pm, 7pm & 9pm.

    Five Times Starting Chips: All $10,000 buy-in events, including the Main Event, will now feature 50,000 in starting chips, up 66%.  This means all WSOP events now start with at least five times buy-in amount.

    Structure Tweaks: With some of the above changes, structures have also been modified slightly in an effort to aid events meeting scheduled duration.  Players are encouraged to review structure sheets in advance.  (One example: Instead of a 100-200 level followed by 100-200-25, there will now be just a 100-200-25 level).

    Playing into the money on Day 1 of Colossus: Each of the six starting flights of Colossus II will reach the money and begin processing payouts immediately within the flight versus a traditional hard bubble on Day 2 of a consolidated field.  This will cut any congestion in payouts process significantly and also allow players who cash in a flight or surrendering their stack at the end of the flight, a chance to re-enter another flight and perhaps cash again within the same event.

    Registering for only one flight at a time: In order to better manage, multi-flight, multi-entry events (Colossus, Millionaire Maker, Crazy Eights & Little One for One Drop), players may only register for one flight at a time in advance. If they are eliminated in that flight, they may go to the cage to register for another flight if they choose.

The number of official WSOP gold bracelet events is up one to 69.

There are eight new tournaments this year:

June 5: Event #4 – $1,000 Top Up Turbo No-Limit Hold’em. (2-day event)

June 9: Event #12 – $565 Pot-Limit Omaha with re-entry (cheapest PLO event in WSOP history)

June 15: Event #23 – $2,000 No-Limit Hold’em

June 23: Event #40 – $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball featuring Limit A-5, 2-7, and Badugi.

June 26: Event #45 – $1,500 Mixed No-Limit Hold’em/Pot-Limit Omaha.

June 30: Event #53 – $1,500 Mixed Pot-Limit Omaha-8/Omaha-8/Big O. All three Omahas!

July 1: Event #54 A/B/C/D – $888 Crazy Eights Eight-Handed No-Limit Hold’em – $888,888 guaranteed for 1st.
