The 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Circuit series is currently underway.
This time players around are competing in the Silver Legacy Circuit Series which is taking place on WSOP.com. The series got underway on March 19 and will run through March 30, with 12 gold rings up for grabs and more than $1.3 million in guarantees on offer.
The series opened with Event #1: $75,000 GTD NLH BIG $500 Kick-Off which attracted a total of 293 players (including 114 rebuys).
The event awarded $136,831 in total prize money, with Jared “darrensrabbi” Jaffee walking away with the top prize of $27,229.36. Jaffe’s latest victory has earned him his third WSOP Circuit ring.
The event’s winner, Jaffe, is an accomplished poker pro with nearly $5 million in live tournament earnings. He has one WSOP gold bracelet under his name which he won back in 2014, and also owns a WPT title.
He captured his first ring by winning the Main Event at the WSOP Circuit Bicycle Casino in 2017. His second ring came just less than a month ago, when he took down the opening event of the WSOP.com Planet Hollywood Circuit. This was a special event for Jaffe as it gave him his third WSOP Circuit ring and caused the online poker community to remember his darrensrabbi ID.
Prominent Pros Fall Short of Reaching the Final Table
Some of poker’s well-known pros took part in the event, and many of them managed to take home some cash though they failed to reach the final table, such as popular female pro Krista “Pollux” Gifford ($11th, $2,134.56), two-time WSOP bracelet winner and poker commentator Tony “Panoramic” Dunst (17th, $1,258.84) and two-time WSOP Global Casino champ Ryan “GoFeltaFish” Eriquezzo (21st, $957.81),
Last year’s WSOP.com Player of the Year Yong “LUCKySPEW1” Kwon (22nd) and Poker Hall of Famer Daniel “DNegs‘ Negreanu (27th) also earned $957.81 for their efforts, while Mid-States Poker Tour title holder Landon “ActionDealer” Tice finished $36th for $793.61.
The WSOP Silver Legacy Online Circuit continues on WSOP.com, culminating in the $525 buy-in, $300K GTD Main Event which will take place on March 28. A $1,000 buy-in High Roller 6-Max will also run on the final day of the series, March 30.
The next WSOP Online Circuit event on the schedule will be the Spring Online Super Circuit which will take place from April 10-27.
