2017 WSOP Schedule

February 7, 2017

Somehow it slipped my notice that the 2017 WSOP schedule has been out for nearly two weeks now, but I got a good look at it last night and have a solid idea of what I will be aiming for.

For those of you that haven’t seen it yet, you can check out the schedule here.

June 1st: $1500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better (3 day event): This will 100% be my first event. I’m very happy about the timing of it. It allows me to be in Vegas for the start of the series and most of the events I want to play follow shortly afterwards. I had by far my worst performance in this event last year.

June 2nd: THE COLOSSUS III – $565 No Limit Hold Em (6 day event): Best case scenario, I final table the O8 tournament and have to play that event on the 2nd and 3rd, but if I bust out, I have a good 5-6 days before the next event I really want to play and the Colossus is a pretty good way to occupy that time.

June 5th: $1000 Tag Team No Limit Hold Em (3 day event): Very unlikely I will play this event, but could be a fun $500 sweat for my friend Vince and I if we fill up to it.

June 7th: $1500 H.O.R.S.E. (3 day event): This one is an absolute must for me.

June 9th: $565 Pot Limit Omaha (3 day event): Like the Colossus, I’m not really aiming to play this event. My PLO experience is basically zero, so I’d probably just be lighting $565 on fire and even if I did manage to do well, I’d much rather play this next event.

June 10th: $1500 8-Game Mix 6-Handed (3 day event): Another must play event for me.

June 11th: $1500 No Limit Hold Em MILLIONAIRE MAKER (5 day event): The chance for a huge score is appealing, but I’m not making NLHE events a priority over mixed limit events, so most likely I’ll be sitting this one out and focusing on the next one.

June 12th: $1500 Limit Hold Em (3 day event): Can’t miss the $1500 LHE, as limit hold em is easily my best game.

June 23rd: THE GIANT – $365 No Limit Hold Em (3 day event): I think I’m sold on this tournament. The scope of it kind of boggles my mind. There are going to be five day ones, all of which are a week apart, and each player is going to start with 20,000 in chips – more than the Monster Stack – but with 20 minute levels. A $365 turbo full of terrible players that will probably have well over a million allotted for 1st place? Yes please. I can’t imagine fitting The Giant into my first trip, but I can certainly pair it with the Monster Stack during my second visit.

June 25th: $1500 No Limit Hold Em MONSTER STACK (4 day event): Another must play event for me. Been looking forward to playing this one for a while and I don’t see any reason why I won’t finally get to in 2017.

In all likelihood, I will be playing at least five $1500 events and probably the Colossus and Giant as well. I will be selling up to 50-60% for my $1500 events, but will certainly be keeping all my own action for the smaller events. Hit me up with any interest!
