WSOP Cash and BraceletThe 41st annual World Series of Poker begins today in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Rio Hotel and Casino. There will be a total of 57 bracelet events that will take place this summer, making it the largest WSOP lineup ever. Cards will be in the air at noon for the casino employees event, although the first star-studded tournament will begin at 5 p.m. PDT today with the $50,000 Players Championship.

The Player’s Championship replaces the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. world championship, which ran from 2006-2009. The other big new development this year was the reintroduction of the WSOP Tournament of Champions. The tournament will feature the biggest names in poker when the 27 competitors take their seats in this televised event on June 27. The final nine will return for the final table on the Fourth of July.

Card Player’s live reporting team will be on the scene at the Rio for the entire summer to bring you live updates, chip counts, results, photos, new stories, and player interviews from the WSOP, and CardPlayer TV will be providing videos daily.

The 2010 WSOP schedule will feature half a dozen $1,000 no-limit hold’em events that will take place primarily on the weekends during the tournament series. This increase in low buy-in events was due to the popularity of the $1,000 no-limit hold’em event that attracted a non main-event record 6,012 players in 2009. Three non open buy-in events will award bracelets — the casino employees event, the ladies event, and the seniors event. The popular Ante Up for Africa charity event is also once again on the schedule and it will take place on July 3.

In addition to the Player’s Championship, other highlights of the 2010 WSOP include a brand new $25,000 six-handed no-limit hold’em event, and ten $10,000 world championship events. The games that will hold a world championship in 2010 include seven-card stud, seven-card stud eight-or-better, no-limit deuce-to-seven lowball, Omaha eight-or-better, limit hold’em, heads-up no-limit hold’em, pot-limit hold’em, H.O.R.S.E., pot-limit Omaha, and the grand daddy of them all, the no-limit hold’em main event.

The main event will begin on July 5 and run until the final nine are set on July 17. The WSOP summer schedule will come to a close when that happens and the world champion will then be decided in November. It’s going to be a summer filled with as much big-time tournament poker as you can handle so be sure to keep up-to-date with all of the tournament action, bracelet winners, and results on CardPlayer.com.
