WSOP 2020 FAQs

What is the World Series of Poker?

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is a series of poker tournaments held annually in Las Vegas and, since 2004, sponsored by Caesars Entertainment. It dates its origins to 1970, when Benny Binion invited seven of the best-known poker players to the Horseshoe Casino for a single tournament, with a set start and stop time, and a winner determined by a secret ballot of the seven players.

When is the 2020 World Series of Poker?

The 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) will be the 51st edition of the event. Originally scheduled to begin on May 26 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In June, the WSOP introduced the 2020 World Series of Poker Online, a series of 85 online tournaments, 31 on WSOP.com and 54 on GGPoker. The series started on July 1 and concluded in September.
