The 2017 World Series of Poker kicks off in one week at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas with 74 bracelet events. The big news thus far has been the decision to retire the "November Nine" concept and play out the $10,000 Main Event final table from beginning to end in July. We have a week-by-week breakdown of the 2017 schedule, so you can get a better grasp of what's going down this summer in Sin City.


The 2017 World Series of Poker officially begins at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas on Wednesday May 31 and concludes on July 22 with the Main Event Championship final table playing down to a champion. Yup, no mas November Nine! We will crown a champion in July. You can also win a bracelet for bargain-basement prices! There will be events as low as $333 and $365. You can use credit cards at the cage this year, so you can only imagine how many desperate donks will buy into those events. Seriously... you need to go to Vegas this summer for some serious fishing and donk hunting. Don't even play in any events...instead play cash games at the Rio or around time. Tons of fish, dead money, and weekend tourist dough.

The Main Event begins with three Day 1s starting on... There will be three flights of Day 2 played out over two days. The entire field will come together for Day 3. They will play down to a final table on... After a two-day break, the final table officially begins on Thursday, July 19, lasting three days. They will play from 9 to 6 on the first day. On Friday, July 20, they will play from 6 to 3. Saturday, July 21 is the conclusion of the championship.

This year's scheduled added eight new events... $2,620 The Marathon, $365 The Giant, $2,500 Mixed Big Bet, $10,000 PLO Hi-Lo Split 8 or Better, $1,000 NL Super Turbo Bounty. Also, two online events at were added... $333 NL and $3,333 High Roller That's not a typo! The $333 buy-in event is the lowest/cheapest buy-in in the history of the WSOP. Oh, the times have changed!

Of course, the schedule is jam packed with weekend warrior events and more donkaments than you can shake a stick at. Some of the money-printing events include the return of Colossus III and the Milly Maker. Plus, this year the suits added branded events called The Giant and The Marathon... which will most likely stick around in the future.

And let's not forget the One Drop. The highballa $111,111 One Drop returns, along with the bougie $1,111 Little One for One Drop.
