WSOP-Style 2024

No Prizes, No Cash, Just Fun

With the exception of the May 28th and July 5th events, there will be no prizes.

Overview

The WSOP-Style Series is a set of free tournaments one per day, from May 28th through July 17th. Those are the days the World Series of Poker are being held in Las Vegas, Nevada and the World Series of Poker provides the inspiration for this series.

This series is not even remotely affiliated with the World Series of Poker.

This series does, however, use modified versions of the World Series of Poker tournament structures for each of the daily tournaments, with the exception of July 5th (see below). All of the craftpoker.com WSOP-Style tournaments are played in one day, with five minute breaks every hour. Each starts at 5:05 pm Pacific time (8:05 pm Eastern).

Late registration varies per tournament, but is always available for at least thirty-five minutes after the tournament starts.

Many tournaments allow one or more re-entries.

All are welcome

All events in this series are open to the public.

No Early Start on Weekend

Unlike 2022 and 2023, when the weekend tournaments started two hours earlier than the weekday tournaments, all WSOP-Style Series tournaments in 2024 start at the same time (5:05 pm Pacific).

Round Duration

All levels will be five minutes long.

There will be a five minute break that will start after each table has completed a hand at 55 minutes past the hour or later. That means the last table to finish a hand at 55 minutes past the hour or later will get exactly a five minute breaks and all other tables will be paused while waiting for that table to finish a hand.

Leaderboard

There is a "WSOPS 2024 Leaderboard" entry in the Leaderboard menu available in the lobby. By default, only players with a net Fun Money win show up on leaderboards, but if you've played and have a net loss, you can see your entry by having the shift key held down when you select an entry from the Leaderboard menu.

July 5th

Since July 5th has no World Series of Poker tournament play, July 5th is a BARGE inspired structure, "SAM_6", a four game mix of:

"Sam_6" was the nickname of David Lawful, a generous member of BARGE. He liked to play odd games, although he was a formidable opponent in all and a BARGE main event winner (2013).
