The 2021 WSOP can happen this in Las Vegas, Kevin “Kevmath” Mathers reported on Twitter, but the World Series of Poker won’t confirm it, nor will they deny the poker information guru’s claims year. But Ty Stewart says regardless of what the WSOP wants to happen, they must follow state and local guidelines.
Last year’s summer poker extravaganza was replaced with an Online Bracelet Series split between WSOP.com and GGPoker. The poker sites hosted separate Main Events with the final tables played live in Las Vegas and Rozvadov, Czech Republic at the end of the year. The winners — Joseph Hebert and Damian Salas — then came across for a heads-up match during the Rio to look for the 2020 globe champ. Salas defeated Hebert and won the bracelet.
The coronavirus continues to be a problem that is major the world. But cases have dropped significantly and a vaccine may become available to soon whoever wishes it. Therefore, a 2021 WSOP in vegas has become much more likely, but one administrator told CardsChat Information there’s nothing official only at that true point.

Mathers, however, said the summer event is going to happen. He claimed on Twitter him the series will run this year.

“Spoke with a high-ranking WSOP executive last night To answer two frequently asked questions*: A LIVE edition of the WSOP will happen in 2021 The dates of the live WSOP will NOT be during the usual timeframe (late May-mid July),” Mathers tweeted.
“Kevmath” has inside info on poker and the WSOP. He’s worked as the social media czar for the WSOP’s Twitter account the past few years and is a member that is respected of poker news. But did the gun be jumped by him here?
“Not sure who Kevmath spoke with, but a little early for us to make any comment that is official” Stewart told CardsChat News. The executive director for the World Series of Poker, said the fate of the 2021 WSOP hinges on state and local government guidelines, along with the vaccine rollout.
“Everyone is trying to predict when broad vaccination will occur, and many feel comfortable that is toward the back half of the year“If there is a pending announcement, we’ll try to make sure it’s comprehensive.”
