And while naturally the Main Event - along with the rest of the No-Limit Hold'em events - draws the most press, there are plenty of other outstanding tournaments this summer very worthy of your attention.
In fact, some of the best drama - and the best poker - undeniably unfolds in the less-publicized, more-old-school events.
Here's a quick look at five notable non-Hold'em tournaments at this year's Freddy Deeb.
Top contenders: David Singer; Justin Bonomo; Andy Bloch.
2) $5,000 2-7 Triple-Draw Lowball w/Rebuys, June 9. Who doesn't like playing bizarro Draw poker - and with rebuys? How can you resist?
This is another pro favorite. 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball is a draw game where the player with the lowest hand at showdown is awarded the pot. The only tournament with no exposed hole cards makes this a fun one to break up the monotony of getting your aces cracked.
3) $5,000 World Championship Omaha High, June 29. Hold'em with more cards - how can you go wrong? This tournament is bound to draw huge numbers this year.
With Omaha quickly becoming the most-played game at high stakes online you can guarantee this tournament will be filled with wily veterans and brash young online pros alike.
4) $10,000 Seven-Card Stud World Championship, June 7. The Main Event is the granddaddy of all Hold'em tournaments; likewise, the Seven-Card Stud World Championship is the granddaddy of all Stud tournaments.
The field of this event will be a lot smaller than its Hold'em counterpart, though, and you can look forward to seeing virtually all of the game's older pros in the field. Ted Forrest, for example, feels this is his best game.
5) $5,000 World Championship Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low Split Eight-or-Better, June 17. The E. in H.O.R.S.E., Stud Eight-or-Better is a Stud variant where the pot is split up between the best high hand and the best low hand.
Now this won't be the biggest field; in fact it will likely be the smallest. Don't let small numbers fool you. Seven-Card Stud is a tough game, and the hi/lo split adds another layer to this already complex onion.
Top contenders: Who even knows? This game is weird. David Sklansky?
