WSOP Poker App Tournaments

At the time of writing WSOP Poker's multi-table tournaments (MTTs) attract around 50-150 runners, or up to ~800 in the site's freerolls. Sit & Gos take a while to fill.

Player traffic should grow as WSOP slowly opens up to more US states.

Tournament Types

Mostly NLH with some PLO, the most common MTT formats at WSOP Poker include:

  • WSOP Poker Tournament FormatsHeads Up (SNGs)
  • Shorthanded (6-Max)
  • Full Ring
  • Freezeout
  • Rebuy/Add-on
  • Deep Stack
  • Turbo
  • SuperTurbo

Other types include:

  • Knockout - each player has a bounty on their head
  • ShowMe! - the winning hand is revealed at every showdown
  • All In - players are all in every hand
  • Private - e.g. $200 HU SNGs restricted to Diamond Loyalty Level players or higher
  • Teams - rare novelty format where players bet on a sports event, and half the prizepool is shared by players who pick the winning team

Payout Structure

Each WSOP Poker tournament lobby has a link to show the full prize structure for a given number of entrants.

For example a 60 person tournament would see the final 9 players finishing in the money.

Pot Limit Omaha

As you can see from the images above PLO tournaments are rare, however a few do run:

'Fixed Limit' is a filter in the WSOP Poker tournament lobby, as is Stud, however these games rarely seem to be available for MTT or SNG players.
