WSOP Announces 17 New Events For 2020

Headlining those new freezeout occasions is the $1,500 secret bounty no-limit hold ’em.

The mystery bounty operates nearly the same to a routine bounty competition, yet there is a tiny twist. While every player in the field will have a $100 bounty on their head, an arbitrarily picked 100 players will have bounties worth far more.

Players are motivated to register as early as feasible for the heads-up event as the area will certainly be topped at 64 players and will certainly happen on the initial Sunday of the series.

One more new cost point in play for the upcoming summer is the $250,000 buy-in extremely money player no-limit hold ’em. It will be the greatest buy-in on the routine and one of the bigger buy-ins in the history of the WSOP behind only the seven-figure buy-in for the Big One For One Drop in 2012, 2014 as well as 2018.

The super money player will kickoff on June 27, yet there were a few various other high-stakes events revealed Thursday. There is a $25,000 no-limit hold ’em 8-handed occasion near the start of the series on May 29 and also a $50,000 pot-limit Omaha money player set up for July 7.
