The 2016 WSOP will be the 47th Annual World Series of Poker. It will kick off this as it has in years past with the Casino Employees 2-day, no limit hold’em tournament, June 1, 2016.
This year’s schedule highlights onsite and online satellite tournaments starting May 31, 2016 and continuing through July. See the official 2016 WSOP schedule for those dates and times.
Poker Tournament Registration
Registration for 2016 WSOP tournaments are now being accepted. Registrations are being processed via Bravo Poker Live. Depending on the method used to pay, requirements change. Good news for credit card users, once you go through the online verification process, you will be able to use the WSOP Fast Track Kiosks. From the WSOP website:
•Wire-transfer (requires registration at least 14 days prior to event’s start date)
•Cashier’s Check (requires registration at least 14 days prior to event’s start date)
•Credit Card – for buy-ins $1500 and under only (requires registration at least 72 hours prior for first time use) ◦Once a credit card has been verified for WSOP 2016, this same card can be used for online registration until the end of late registration for that event. Once a participant has gone through the complete online registration and verification process, they will then be able to continue to register and pay for events online if they properly fund those transactions and can then utilize the “WSOP Fast Track Kiosks” to print seat cards and receipts.
