For the purposes of this article, we’re going to bring you through all the biggest live events.

Our pick of the biggest poker events 2020

This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it should give you a guideline of what are the biggest poker events 2020 for you to look out for. That means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to keep up with the biggest names in poker as they battle it out against each other.

Aussie Millions Championship

One of Australia’s biggest poker events 2020 is actually taking place right now. But if you haven’t been paying attention to the Aussie Millions Championship action, don’t fret because the Main Event is starting tomorrow, 17 January. And to us, that’s the clear highlight of the poker festival.

It should have an estimated prize pool of approximately $1,800,000, which means it’ll be a serious fight at the final table. Last year’s winner Bryn Kenney hails from the US and it remains to be seen just who or what nationality will end up taking the big prize this year…

World Series of Poker

The World Series of Poker, also known as the WSOP, is big news every year. It’s arguably the most important event in the whole poker calendar. This year it’s taking place in the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas from 26 May until 15 July.

It’s the 51st WSOP and we’re hoping that even though we’ve just past the half centenary, the WSOP organisers still have a good few tricks up their sleeve for an interesting line up of events.

Most people zero in on the $10,000 Main Event Championship first and foremost and this year it’s running from 1-14 July. So if you want to watch the action play out live and are able to tune in, you should know that ESPN and ESPN 2 are broadcasting the action from the final table between 12 and 14 July.

World Poker Tour

One of the best known poker brands around, the World Poker Tour is a televised set of competitive poker tournaments with serious prize money behind it.

The great thing about the World Poker Tour is that it truly is global. So that means, as long as you have the bank balance and talent to back yourself up, you could enter in a city close to you. Of course, many of the people who take part travel to be in the WPT. Professional poker players take these things very seriously after all.
