World Series of Poker 2013 Schedule Released

By , Rakeback.com Poker News Editor

With the 2013 World Series of Poker roughly 3 and a half months away, the official schedule of events has finally been released. The series will take place between May 29th and July 15th at the Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.

In total, 62 WSOP bracelets will be awarded this summer, and soon you'll be able to qualify online.

A few of the most noteworthy points about the schedule are:

1 - Two events will benefit the ONE DROP charity. One is a High Roller costing $111,111 to enter, and the other is much more reachable for average players at $1,111.

2 - The Ladies Only event, frequently controversial because of the number of men that typically enter, has created a barrier to entry for men. It would be illegal to exclude men entirely, BUT the WSOP has found a loophole - the event now costs $10,000 for men to enter, and $1,000 for women.

3 - A "Millionaire Maker" tournament with a $1,500 buy-in will take place on June 1st and will guarantee a $1 million first-place prize.

4 - Event #34 is a $1,000 turbo tournament, the first turbo bracelet event ever.

5 - A non-bracelet $5,000 buy-in Open Face Chinese tournament will take place. Tournament directors will watch the event to determine if it will award a bracelet in future years.

Here's the entire schedule:
