The 44th Annual WSOP gets underway on May 29 with the first event of a total of 62 tournaments. Event 1 is the $500 Casino Employees NLHE that runs for two days. And beginning later that afternoon is Event 2, a $5,000 8-handed NLHE event that will play out over four days. The first $1K NLHE event of the series begins on May 30, and May 31 offers a $1,500 NLHE 6-Handed tournament and $2,500 Omaha/Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better event. Both of those are scheduled for three days. That leads to a heavy list of tournaments for the month of June, all a part of the excitement of the WSOP at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
