Lou Krieger On Poker: WSOP 2011

World Series of Poker Announces 2011 Schedule. The 2011 World Series of Poker schedule has been released and is available at


Fifty-eight events comprise this year’s WSOP, with Event No. 58, the $10,000 buy-in, thirteen-day main event, set for July 7.


Eight other, $10,000 buy-in championship events are also on tap during the WSOP.


Event No. 55 is the Poker Player’s Championship, a $50,000 buy-in event that will begin July 2 and run for five days. Event No. 2, which has tended to be a unique high buy-in event each year, is in keeping with tradition. This year the second event is a $25,000 buy-in, heads-up, no-limit hold’em tournament that’s limited to 256 players.


This year’s WSOP contains loads of $1,000 and $1,500 buy-in events and will likely to fill the Rio with players looking to turn a reasonably priced tournament into a major payday. These events are also likely to drain the card rooms in California of players during each weekend of the WSOP and create a feeding frenzy of players in Las Vegas. It will benefit not only the Rio, but every casino with a poker room and tournament schedule that covers the period from Memorial Day to mid-July.


In addition to the main event, the other $10,000 buy-in tournaments are:


Event 7, Friday, June 3: Pot-Limit Hold’em


Event 11, Monday, June 6: Omaha/8


Event 16, Thursday, June 9: Deuce-to-Seven Lowball, no-limit


Event 21, Sunday, June 12: 7-Card Stud


Event 27, Wednesday, June 15: Limit Hold’Em


Event 33, Saturday June 18: 7-Stud/8


Event 37, Tuesday, June 21: HORSE


Event 42, Friday, June 24: Pot-Limit Omaha


Event 46, Monday, June 27: No-Limit Hold’Em—six handed


For players on a budget, there are six $1,000 buy-in events along with 20 events priced at $1,500.


If this isn’t enough for you, every day from May 30 - July 16 features a $235 buy-in, deep stack, no-limit event that begins at 2 p.m. A similar, $185 buy-in event starts daily at 6 p.m., with a $135 buy-in event nightly at 10 p.m. These are not bracelet events.


Mega $330 buy-in satellites are run daily at 4 p.m. with $550 buy-in sats commencing at 8 p.m. Most, but not all of these, are no-limit hold’em.


New Book Available Soon. I’ve gotten a lot of email about the second edition of the book Mark Tenner and I wrote about Omaha/8. The good news is it’s going to the printer as we speak, and should be available in about six weeks or so. Because we added so much new material, we retitled it, and it will be named Mastering Omaha/8 Poker.


If you’re interested in an autographed copy, keep reading my column—or tune in to my radio show, Keep Flopping Aces, which webcasts Thursdays at 9 p.m. Eastern Time (6 p.m. Pacific) on, and I’ll let you know how to get an autographed copy a bit closer to publication.


If you listen live you can call in and chat with me or my guests, or make use of the show’s chat room feature and type your questions which we’ll answer on air. But even if you can’t listen live, shows are archived at the Rounder’s Radio web site, and available for on-demand listening.
