OPEN 30 Card Protector
Event Schedule
Badge w/Lanyard

Access to all Cash Tournaments

Book Rooms

BOOK YOUR ROOM

NOTICE: Room Booking at our Special Rate will end on Tuesday, Oct 3rd!

Nothing gives you the full experience of OPEN 30 like staying on-site! The Orleans Casino is an amazing venue - and with all tournaments taking place in the Poker Room, it's just a quick few minutes from your room to the action.

 

In years past, several players tried to "save a few bucks" by staying at a cheaper hotel. But what they spent on cabs, Uber fares, and travel time (plus missing out on so much of the event), things just didn't add up. Stay on-site, have more fun, and SAVE!

Click the Book Your Room button below and enter this code when prompted: WTEK23C

Special Notice: We will not be offering Moonshiners Upgrades for this event. However, we will have GREAT drink specials available while you're playing at the tables!

Qualification Lists

QUALIFIED PLAYER LISTS

ATTENTION! This is the last event that pandemic-era and previous season "Carryovers" are available. We've combined all qualifications into the four lists below for easier reference.

To keep things simple, ALL PLAYERS should start with the FINALS lists below. Check to see if your name is listed - if it is, you do not need to look any further!

If you do not see a Finals qualification, then proceed to the Semifinal lists. Remember, you will get cage tickets for the best event you're qualified for. Thanks all!

OTHER NOTES

-- You must have a valid and unexpired ID in order to get your B-Connected Card, which is required to participate in all tournaments at The Orleans Casino.

-- All buy-ins are listed with entry and casino fees included. Any add-ons that may be available are separate from this price and are 100% optional (but highly recommended as this money goes directly to the dealers!).

-- Unlimited re-entry is available for the first 4 levels of all tournaments EXCEPT for National Championship and National TOC events. Breaks are scheduled every 4 levels.

-- All poker-related decisions made by the Tournament Director and related Orleans staff are final. WTP does not interfere or get involved in those decisions. Please observe all house rules and those announced prior to each event.

ADDITIONAL TOURNAMENT and EVENT STRUCTURES WILL BE POSTED SOON. STAY TUNED!

FREQUENTLY ASKED Q's

Note: Don't forget that Daylight Savings Time ends during the OPEN!

 

OPEN 30 runs from Saturday, November 4th until Thursday, November 9th. Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 5th at 2am Vegas time. That means when the clock strikes 2am, it will actually be 1am. Make sure you factor this into your plans!

 

Is the OPEN similar to the World League Poker Championships? Where is the WLPC?!?

 

The World Tavern Poker OPEN is the same event structurally as the WLPC. We decided that moving forward, it was important to reintroduce the OPEN brand to our Vegas event. But don't worry - the WLPC Main Event (and the title of World Champion to the winner) is still happening, and we expect players from many of the top leagues from around the US, Canada, and maybe even Great Britain to attend!

 

When will Registration be open?

 

Registration will open starting at 10am on Saturday. Registration will open between 9am and 10am each day thereafter, and run to around 4-5pm on most days.

 

Will I need a Players Card to play in tournaments at The Orleans?

 

Yes! You can get your 'B-Connected' Players Card after going through Registration. You will be directed to where to go to get your card if you don't already have one.

 

Does purchasing an Access Pass include my buy-ins for the cash tournaments?

 

No, it does not. Purchasing an Access Pass gives you access to the cash tournaments during the series. Buy-ins for tournaments are separate and must be paid by the player to enter.

 

Why are there resort fees if I book through The Orleans?

 

Resort fees are the norm at every property of note. However, it's still worthwhile to stay on-site! Our special rates are hard to beat, and you simply can't beat the convenience (saves money, time, and energy) of staying on-site. Plus, resort fees at The Orleans include room Wi-Fi, access to a Fitness Center, in-room coffee, and more.

 

Will there be tickets to the Medieval-Themed Main Party for sale during the OPEN?

 

In very limited quantities and likely only for a brief time. This is why we highly recommend purchasing a Party & Poker Access Pass prior to the event to get the full OPEN experience!

GREAT POKER. GREAT PARTIES.

GREAT PEOPLE!
