Bust a Champion, Win a Main Event Seat

Most players who bust a Main Event champion are happy enough walking away with a story, but players who do so in the first event of the series will win a $10,000 Main Event seat of their own.

The new event, the Champions Reunion No-Limit Hold'em Freezeout (8-Handed), will kick off the summer and offers free entry to all living Main Event champions. That means anyone who puts up the $5,000 buy-in will have a chance to play with the likes of Phil Hellmuth, Johnny Chan, Tom McEvoy, Scotty Nguyen, Jamie Gold, Koray Aldemir, Espen Jorstad, Hossein Ensan, Damian Salas and reigning championDaniel Weinman.

A PokerNews Championship & Daily DeepStack Promotions

Those of us at PokerNews couldn't be more excited for the PokerNews DeepStack Championship, a $600 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em event that will get underway on June 25.

In addition to being part of the first-ever PokerNews-sponsored bracelet event. PokerNews will provide coverage of the $200, $250 and $400 Daily Deepstacks, which will give players a chance to climb up weekly leaderboards that will award seats to the PokerNews DeepStack Championship to the weekly top ten point earners.

Celebrate Independence Day With A Bracelet

What better way to celebrate Independence Day in the Nevada desert than by winning a bracelet? The Independence Day Celebration No-Limit Hold'em event gives players a chance to do so at the price of $800.

The three-day event gets underway on July 3 and will feature two starting flights with one re-entry allowed per flight.

How to Decide What WSOP Event to Play

$3,000 Mid-Stakes Championship

Everyone wants a shot to win a poker championship, but not all players are able to put up a $10,000 or $25,000 buy-in. Thankfully, the Mid-Stakes Championship No-Limit Hold'em gives grinders the opportunity to win a championship title for $3,000.

The Mid-Stakes Championship gets underway on July 11, giving players who bust out of the Main Event another chance at reaching poker glory.

Four-Card Mystery Bounty

The WSOP made a splash a few years ago when they tried out the Mystery Bounty format, which became an instant hit and produced million-dollar bounty winners including Matt Glantz, Patrick Liang and Shant Marashlian. Now, Omaha players can get in on the Mystery Bounty fun with the $1,000 buy-in Mystery Bounty Pot-Limit Omaha event on July 9.

First Big O Championship

Players who prefer five cards should look into the Big O Championship (Five Card PLO Hi-Lo 8 or Better), a $10,000 buy-in event that will produce the first-ever WSOP Big O champion.

The first WSOP Big O event took place last summer with Event #41: $1,500 Big O. It was a resounding success with 1,458 players and a prize pool of nearly $2 million as Scott Abrams won the inaugural event for $315,203.

Double Board Bomb Pot Bracelet Event

Another event making its debut at the 2024 WSOP may prove to be one of the most interesting of the entire summer. The $1,500 buy-in Mixed No-Limit Hold'em; Pot-Limit Omaha Double Board Bomb Pot event will put players, dealers and poker reporters to the test as they keep track of two different boards in the Hold'em-Omaha hybrid.

The first-of-its-kind eight-handed event draws influence from cash game bomb pots where each player puts in a set amount and sees a flop made popular by poker streams. It will no doubt be an exciting event as it gets underway on June 15.
