The World Series of Poker (WSOP) always creates a buzz in the poker world, and after a long wait, the 2021 WSOP Main Event is finally here. Starting on Thursday, November 4th at 11 a.m. PT, this event marks the beginning of two weeks of thrilling poker action.

Last year's Main Event had to adapt to the pandemic and was played online, but this year the tournament returns to its usual format. If you've forgotten the ins and outs of the Main Event, don't worry. PokerNews has compiled all the information you need to know about this eagerly anticipated tournament.

2021 WSOP Main Event Schedule

With the US government easing travel restrictions from November 8th, players from all over the world can fly to the United States to participate in the Main Event. To accommodate this, two additional starting flights, Day 1E and Day 1F, have been added, and the late registration period has been extended.

Day 1E and Day 1F will take place on November 8th and November 9th, respectively. On November 9th, Day 2 will begin for players who successfully navigated their way through Day 1A, 1B, and 1D. On November 10th, the survivors from 1C, 1E, and 1F will combine for their Day 2.

2021 WSOP Main Event Streaming

If you're unable to attend the Main Event in person but still want to catch all the action, you can watch it exclusively on PokerGO. President of PokerGO, Mori Eskandani, said, "PokerGO is proud to present the 2021 World Series of Poker live streaming schedule, featuring 36 days of live broadcasts, including comprehensive coverage of the WSOP Main Event from start to finish."

PokerGO will provide thirteen consecutive days of live streaming, allowing you to stay connected with the tournament.

2021 WSOP Main Event Structure

The Main Event's structure has received universal praise from the poker community. A deep starting stack of 60,000 chips and two-hour levels give players ample opportunity to showcase their skills. Unlike last year, this year's Main Event will operate under freezeout rules, meaning players cannot re-enter if they are eliminated.

Each Day 1 flight and Days 2-4 will comprise five levels of play. The schedule for the fifth and sixth day is yet to be confirmed, but players who make it that far can expect to play 5-6 levels. Day 7 will conclude when only 9 players remain, Day 8 will narrow the field down to the final four, and Day 9 will determine the 2021 Main Event Champion.

Late registration will be open until the end of Level 7, allowing players to bypass Day 1 and start their WSOP Main Event adventure on either of the Day 2 flights. For those who choose this option, the blinds for Level 7 are 500/1,000/1,000, and for Level 8, they are 600/1,200/1,200. This will provide players with a starting stack in the 50-60 big blind range.

Live Satellites to the 2021 WSOP Main Event

As is customary, the WSOP will run satellites to the Main Event. These satellites will take place from November 3rd to November 8th at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

Will There Be Any Controversy?

Controversy is never far from the WSOP Main Event. Previous years have provided memorable moments, including disqualifications and dramatic eliminations of notable players. The Main Event is known for its exciting and sometimes unpredictable gameplay.

What Former Main Event Champions Are in Vegas?

Former WSOP Main Event champions often return to the tournament, and this year is no exception. Defending champion Damian Salas is expected to participate, along with other recent champions such as Hossein Ensan, Qui Nguyen, Joe McKeehen, Martin Jacobson, and Ryan Riess. Some iconic champions, like Phil Hellmuth, Joe Hachem, Greg Raymer, and Robert Varkonyi, have also been spotted at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

When Is the Money Bubble Expected and What Will the Main Event Prize Pool Be?

According to WSOP.com, the money bubble is expected to burst early on Day 4, in Level 17. The size of the Main Event prize pool depends on the number of entries. With the excitement surrounding this year's event and the additional starting flights, we could witness the largest WSOP Main Event ever. The record from 2006, with 8,773 total entries and an $82,512,162 prize pool, may be surpassed.

Stay tuned for updates and follow all the WSOP action to see who will be crowned the 2021 Main Event Champion.
