WSOP Warm Up

WSOP Warm Up 0001

This year's WSOP festival starts and ends a little earlier than last year. Maybe that will ensure the baking temperatures of 115 degrees Fahrenheit in early August 2006 won't return during the climax of the Series this time around. Whatever the weather, the poker will certainly be hot.

There is so much more to the World Series of Poker than the $10,000 Main Event. For those with the time, and maybe a little spare cash from your poker accounts, here is the programme in full with starting dates. There is plenty here from which you can create an itinerary for a Vegas trip. Most tournaments are in the $1,000 - $2,500 buy-in range (£500 - £1,250; or €750 - €1,850). Apart from the Main Event, most tournaments are two and three days in length:
