This story was published more than 2 years ago.

After being canceled in 2020, the World Series of Poker is returning to Sin City later this year, as the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino will be running different events, including the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event.

The WSOP is set to have its first event on September 30th and will run through November 23rd at the Las Vegas resort and casino. The Main Event will begin on November 4th and run through the 17th. There will also be other events including games like Omaha, with different buy-ins and prizes.

It's not known whether or not players will flock to the tournament like they did in 2019, when more than 8,000 customers showed up. Those interested in attending can book rooms at Caesars' properties located around the Strip. Registration can be done online and will open sometime in August.

Commenting on the return WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said, "Make no mistake, the 2021 WSOP will be the real deal and we're preparing for a full house. Throughout the storied history of the WSOP, this year will be particularly memorable and we're preparing for a poker reunion all players can celebrate. We're beyond thrilled to offer a complete schedule of can't-miss events including all our flagships and the variety players deserve."
