The World Series of Poker will crown its 2011 Champion on Tuesday night, but before that fateful moment there will be plenty of activities and festivities taking place. Chief amongst the scheduled events will be the 2011 Poker Hall of Fame inductions of Barry Greenstein and Linda Johnson, which will precede the seating of the final three players –Ben Lamb, Martin Staszko, and Pius Heinz—in the Penn & Teller Theater, as they look to claim the 2011 WSOP Main Event title.

Here is a complete itinerary for Tuesday’s happenings at the WSOP:
