The 2017 World Series of Poker was the 48th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP). It took place from May 30-July 17 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.[1] There was a record 74 bracelet events including the third edition of the $565 Colossus tournament and the $10,000 No Limit Hold'em Main Event, which began on July 8.

The Main Event was streamed live on ESPN2 and Poker Central beginning on July 8 and ran throughout the tournament. For the first time since 2007, the Main Event concluded in July; for the previous nine years, once the final table was set the Main Event was stopped with the nine remaining players returning to the Rio in November to battle it out for the bracelet.[2]

New events[edit]

  • Event 19: $365 The Giant No Limit Hold'em - The event will feature five starting flights spread out over five weeks, with remaining players returning for Day 2 on July 8. A player who survived one flight can choose to abandon their stack and re-enter into another flight. The money will be reached during each flight, giving a player the opportunity to cash multiple times in the event.
  • Event 23: $2,620 The Marathon No Limit Hold'em - Players will begin with 26,200 chips and play 100-minute levels.
  • Three WSOP.com Online Events - There will be three events offered exclusively on WSOP.com with buy-ins of $333, $1,000, and $3,333.
