This Week in Gambling: The WSOP Main Event is set for December

18 November 2020

The World Series of Poker will not let coronavirus win. They have scheduled the 2020 WSOP Main Event, and this year's tourney will be different than any in history. We also have sports betting news and a Las Vegas casino reopening and grand opening.

Yes, there will be a 2020 WSOP Main Event. To pull it off the Main Event will be played as an online-live hybrid both domestically and internationally. The $10,000 tourney will take place on WSOP website for players in either New Jersey or Nevada and play down to a final table of nine. GGPoker will play host to international players and also play down to a final table of nine. Each site will offer a separate tournament with the exact same structure.

The final tables of each tournament will then play out live. The 2020 World Series of Poker Main will play to a winner at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Monday, 28 December, while GGPoker finalists will play to a winner at King's Casino in the Czech Republic on Tuesday, 15 December. The winner of each tournament will then battle it out in a special Heads-Up Finale with the victor taking home an added $1,000,000, a bracelet (the only one to be awarded), and the title of 2020 WSOP Main Event champ. That match will take place at the Rio on Wednesday, 30 December.
