WSOP 2011 – Notable Events


The WSOP is an almost 2-month long affair, featuring countless side events and elbow-rubbing opportunities with poker’s elite. Everyone who’s anyone in poker and who does not boycott his sponsor for some reason is there. Still, some events stand out from among the bunch, either through the traditional poker values they represent or through the sheer awesomeness brought about by the size of their buy-ins and prize-pools.
The Grudge Match events which pit renowned poker personalities against one another in re-enactments of historic WSOP confrontations are definitely among the highlights of this year’s series. Because they’re not open to the public though, one can’t really call them side events. The first outstanding side event of the 2011 Series is beyond doubt the $25k NL Holdem Heads-up Event. Anyone who can afford to shell out $25k on a single event buy-in has got to be someone in poker. Events like this usually turn into a red-carpet defilation of poker celebrities and this one will be no exception.

To make a long story short: all the Championship events are quite outstanding. They all feature massive buy-ins ($10k), they all draw select fields and they all end up in epic battles for the title. Each and every single player who walks away with a bracelet from one of these events can rest assured that he’s beaten the poker world’s cream to it.
Event #7, which takes place on Jun 3, is one such event. Players will match skills in PL Holdem for the title.
Events #11, #16 and #21 are Championship events too, together with a whole bunch of other ones coming further down the WSOP line. The $50k Players’ Championship event is one of the biggest buy-in tournaments of the Series. It gets going on July 2 and it will doubtlessly only feature top-level competition. If one isn’t interested in railbirding the large buy-in events but rather in playing, he’s likely to find the $1k NL Holdem events (like event #8 and #20) much more interesting.
Every single WSOP 2011 side event has something special to offer. Some folks will like the cheap ones, with large starting field and large prize-pools. High rollers and avid railbirds will go for the Championship events instead. The bottom line: every event that awards a gold bracelet as its top prize is worth your while, whether you only like to watch the action or you aim to take part in it…
