Next Dream Team Poker Event Set For WSOP
May 19, 2022

The good people of Dream Team Poker, the folks behind the recent highly successful team-based poker tournament at Caesar's Palace, have announced their next scheduled event, this time at the RIO during the 40th anniversary of the World Series of Poker.

Reminiscent of an exhibition event at the Olympics, this $500 + $60 buy-in ($1,680 per team) open event will be held July 12-13, during the last few days of the WSOP Main Event and is sure to attract large numbers of both pro and amateur teams (the first 300 of which will receive personalized jerseys much like the one pictured).

"After seeing the terrific response to the recent Dream Team Poker tournaments in Las Vegas, we thought a team-based event would be a fun addition to the end of the WSOP," said Jeffrey Pollack, WSOP Commissioner. "The Dream Team Poker event is one of the many new elements added in 2009 that will help make this summer a memorable one for all WSOP players and fans."

The last Dream Team Poker event attracted 148 teams, many of which held top pros like Phil Hellmuth, Mike Matusow, Jamie Gold, Justin Bonomo, Maria Ho, Tiffany Michele and a PokerRoad team consisting of Joe Sebok, Jeff Madsen and Court "The Hick" Harrington.  That event easily sold out during the relatively slow poker month of March, so when you consider this next event will be held during poker's biggest month, during the game's most prestigious event, at a time when most players will still be hanging around but already busted from the last bracelet event of the Series, let's just say it may be a good idea to pre-register early.
