The Muck: What Does the Poker Community Like and Dislike About the 2024 WSOP Schedule?

The eagerly anticipated 2024 World Series of Poker (WSOP) schedule released last week, and the most prominent reaction to it on social media has been positive thanks in large part to some of the new exciting tournaments.

Here at PokerNews we're stoked to introduce the first ever $600 PokerNews Deepstack Championship No-Limit Hold'em WSOP event, which kicks off June 25 at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas. But we aren't the only ones who are intrigued.

In this edition of The Muck, we dive into the poker community's reaction to the schedule. What do they like about it? What do they dislike about it? Most importantly, is Allen Kessler satisfied? Let's find out!

Poker Community Sounds Off on 2024 WSOP Schedule

The schedule release went over well with most poker fans, including the top pros. Many praised the WSOP for adding some unique new events such as a double board bomb pot tournament, a first at the World Series of Poker. Here are some of the takes we found on X.

Here's how we know the schedule is a good one Kessler didn't complain much. In fact, his main complaint was that the WSOP stopped at 99 bracelet events, but the "Chainsaw" argues that "100 has such a nice ring to it." Maybe next year, Allen.

"I may actually be skipping WSOP this year. Last year was brutal. Just too damn big now. Too many people. Too chaotic. Breaking tables having a 20 minute hike to the other room. 3 hour payout lines. Gets less enjoyable each year," wrote @EquityTommy.

Although the above tweet wasn't exactly positive, that opinion was not shared by the majority. Chance Kornuth, a three-time bracelet winner, broke down his thoughts on the schedule in a brief X video.

Bart Hanson tweeted his excitement for the $1,500 double board bomb pot event, but offered a bit of criticism: "I just wish they wouldn't have bastardized it with Hold'em." The Crush Live Poker founder prefers pot-limit Omaha only in that event.

"WSOP schedule looks great IMO. A bunch of $2k-3k events, and adding an event with bomb pots is great. Next step - an event that's entirely composed of NL bomb pots. No preflop play whatsoever. I personally would love that," tweeted Matt Hunt, a poker pro and member of the Only Friends podcast crew.

"I wake up from a nap with the best news of the WSOP daily schedule including a event #41: $1,500 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha Double Board Bomb Pot. #WSOP did not disappoint!" wrote @MaliaAMeans.

Dylan Weisman referred to the 2024 WSOP schedule as "straight fire," and said he's "stoked" for what's going to be a "busy summer" for him chasing his second bracelet.

The overall take on the schedule was that there are plenty of events for players at all levels.
