The 2020 World Series of Poker has officially been postponed. The 51st running of the WSOP, set to begin Tuesday, May 26 from the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas is officially being postponed as a result of the public health emergency involving COVID-19. It is now targeted for the fall of 2020, with exact dates and events to be determined.

“We are committed to running the World Series of Poker this year but need additional time to proceed on our traditional scale while prioritizing guest and staff well-being,” said Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the World Series of Poker. “In the interim, official WSOP competitions are expected to be played online this summer, and we will soon announce details of an expanded series of tournaments to be played on WSOP.com and through partnership with international operators, which will allow players to chase WSOP glory from their homes.”

The 2020 WSOP schedule will be revisited as a result of the postponement, and changes are anticipated. When this year’s edition does run, it will include poker’s world championship, the $10,000 buy-in Main Event championship, the richest prize pool on the poker calendar each year. Once details for the revised 2020 WSOP are finalized, plans will be communicated.

The next live event on the WSOP calendar, remains the Global Casino Championship, is still scheduled for August 11-13, 2020 at Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina. This is an invitation-only event, open to those who have qualified. WSOP Europe, hosted at King’s Resort in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, remains on the calendar for the Fall 2020.

All announced dates, times and events are subject to change.

2020 has seen many special events either postponed or canceled in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The British Open golf tournament, the New York City and Boston Marathons, and Wimbledon were all canceled this year while other events such as the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League and Major League Baseball saw significant delays to the start and/or completion of their seasons. Thus, it isn’t unnatural that this has extended to the world of poker, also.

In the poker world, Caesars Entertainment and officials at the Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino held out hope as long as possible that there would be a 2020 World Series of Poker held. In April, however, they succumbed to the fact of the coronavirus-19 outbreak and “postponed” the 2020 WSOP (by this point, it can be safely assumed that “postponement” is now a full cancelation). They quickly put together a massive online event that covered two online poker sites and, in the tournaments on GGPoker, reserved packages from the winner’s prize money for them to attend the 2020 World Series of Poker Europe.
There’s only one problem with that – has or will the 2020 WSOP Europe be canceled?

King’s Casino is Closed

The first clue as to possible problems with something happening as to a 2020 WSOP Europe is in the host casino itself. King’s Casino in Rozvadov came back after a long shutdown in the summer and had been open for business. A recent trip to their website, however, has a large banner on it that states the casino is “closed for business” until November 3. An email to King’s Casino stated that “the casino (is) currently closed, we don’t have any certain update now” as to the potential of a 2020 WSOP Europe.

The news isn’t particularly good on the other two portions that would make the decision on this case, either. Czech Republic government officials recently put the country further into a lockdown to curb the spread of COVID in the country and on the European continent. Czech Republic Health Minister Roman Prymula has stated that the Czech health care system is highly stressed now, with hospitals running out of beds. Reuters quotes Prymula as saying “The measures, while quite robust and burdensome for the population, are absolutely necessary.”

The shutdowns in Czech Republic are expected to stay in place “at least” until November 3.

Wsop Europe 2020 Dates

The other entity involved in this is Caesars and the WSOP itself. A look at their website shows that any reference to a “2020 World Series of Poker Europe” has been scrubbed from the page. The page itself has not been updated since September 14, when A. J. Kelsall won the WSOP Global Casino Championship, held not in a casino but on WSOP.com.

Poker News Daily has reached out to Caesars and WSOP officials regarding the 2020 WSOP Europe, but there has been no reply from anyone regarding if there will be a 2020 WSOP Europe. It must be thought, however, that it would be basically impossible for not only the WSOP but also Kings’ Casino to whip up a two- or three-week live tournament at this late a date.

Online Financially Successful, But…

Wsop Main Event 2020

The move online with the 2020 online WSOP was viewed as a mixed bag by many in the poker world. While Caesars and the WSOP were able to pull off 31 events on their WSOP.com platform and another 54 on GGPoker that offered prize pools of almost $150 million, many were quick to point out that it was online poker, not the same as the live game. There were also the restrictions that both WSOP.com and GGPoker had; WSOP.com restricted players to REQUIRING them to be inside either Nevada or New Jersey to play online, while GGPoker was not open to U. S. residents.

There is also the question of the money removed from the bracelet winners on GGPoker for their prospective trip to Rozvadov for the 2020 WSOP Europe. There was $12,000 from a winner’s purse to guarantee them a seat at the 2020 WSOP Europe Main Event (the Main Event buy-in plus travel expenses). If there is not a WSOP Europe held, will that roll into 2021 when (if?) they play? Or will the players have the option of receiving the money back?

Caesars and the WSOP – and, with their property shut down, King’s Casino also is pulled into the morass – are perhaps delaying an announcement regarding the schedule, especially with how the system in Czech Republic is so fluid. And, with COVID-19 now looking as if it will stretch into 2021 without a vaccine or solid treatment in sight, it is possible that the virus will influence 2021’s international tournament poker schedule. Hopefully WSOP officials will have a firm statement on this subject soon and Poker News Daily will keep you updated.
