WSOP Week 2
The second week of action in the 2023 WSOP features tournaments in Razz, Badugi and Eight Game Mix.

The WSOP action could hardly have started faster in Las Vegas, with gold bracelets already won at the Horseshoe and Paris casinos in the 54th annual World Series of Poker. We’ve seen Ronnie Day win the 2023 WSOP Tournament of Champions, Alexandre Vuilleumier triumph over Chance Kornuth to grab his first bracelet and Chad Eveslage win the second WSOP title of his career in stunning fashion.

What will we see at the felt in Las Vegas this coming week? Which tournaments are coming to a conclusion and which new events are kicking off? Let’s load up those tournament tickets and fire!

Who Could Win Gold in Continuing Events?

With four live events still running at the time of going to press, there is all to play for in a handful of very different tournaments. Event #3, the $1,000-entry Mystery Millions saw both Shant Marashlian and Patrick Liang win the pair of million-dollar bounties on Day 2, but there is still a bracelet and million-dollar top prize to be won on Day 3 of the event, with Dan Shak and Chris ‘Big Huni’ Hunichen remaining in the hunt.

In the $10,000-entry Dealer’s Choice Championship, a.k.a. Event #10, Chad Eveslage leads the field hoping to make it a double after he won the similar Event #5, also costing $10k to play in Dealer’s Choice. With John Hennigan, Ari Engel and Paul Volpe all still in contention, it won’t be easy for Eveslage to make it a double this series inside the first dozen events.

In Event #11, the $600 Deepstack event, Phil Hellmuth is still in with a chance of winning his 17th bracelet. With the record already, the Poker Brat can look to go seven clear of Phil Ivey, Johnny Chan and the late, great Doyle Brunson at the top of that list of bracelet winners. He’ll start Day 2 of that event 96th from 340 runners, who were whittled down from 6,085 entries. Finally, in Event #12, the $5,000 Freezeout event, Josh Arieh, Artem Metaldi and Michale Gagliano all have big stacks in an event where Ben Heath is also in a great position to make a deep run.

Gladiators Ready for War

Monday sees two mixed game events kick off in Las Vegas, with the $600 buy-in PLO Deepstack event taking place along with the $10,000-entry Seven Card Stud Championship. Having won the most recent Seven Card Stud bracelet event, last night’s Event #9, surely the champion Nick Schulman will be in it to win it?

Tuesday sees a six-max $1,500 NLHE event kick off, along with a $25,000 eight-max high roller, which is sure to be attended by the best in the business. There is also an Omaha Hi-Lo event which costs $1,500 to play and an online event in NLHE, the ultra Deepstack. Last night, Shaun Deeb came second in the third Online bracelet event, so the standard has never been higher online.

Wednesday welcomes gladiators to the arena, with the WSOP’s ‘Gladiators of Poker’ event kicking off with Flight 1A. That costs just $300 to play – the WSOP’s lowest price-point in history – and with Day 1 flights continuing throughout the week, it could rival the 18,000 players who ponied up the $1,000 to play Event #3’s ‘Mystery Millions’ event, albeit without the bounty element this time.

Badugi and Razz on the Cards

There are some different varieties of poker taking place all week over the next seven days. The $1,500-entry Badugi Event #20 begins on Wednesday at 2pm local time – perhaps early for the typical Badugi player! Another big mixed game event starts on Thursday as players sit down in the $10,000-entry Limit Hold’em Championship, which will take place across three presumably fairly long days.

On Friday, 2pm is also the start time for Razz players to get their poker fix in their favorite format. That event costs $1,500 to play and lasts three days too, one day shorter than Saturday’s Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better event, which is a much more expensive $10,000 to take on. Sandwiched between two lower-price NLHE events – one live, one online – is Sunday’s $1,500-entry Eight Game Mix Event #27. That event, like many others this Series, lasts three days from start to finish. Call it the approach, the fairway and the green… and ending with the most green is the aim.

Good luck if you’re taking to the felt at any of this week’s WSOP events.

Here’s a detailed look at all the events to come in the seven days ahead.
