The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has recently released the key dates for their upcoming online events, including the 2021 WSOP Online Bracelet Series, WSOP Super Circuit Online Series, as well as online satellites for the WSOP Las Vegas Main Event.
The 2021 WSOP Online Bracelet Series will kick off on WSOP.com on July 1. The domestic leg of the festival will run for a month, until August 1, featuring 33 bracelet events open to players in Nevada and New Jersey.
Among the biggest winners of last year’s series on WSOP.com was Nahrain “2Rivers” Tamero who took down the $1,000 NLH Championship for $310,832.
The international portion of the series takes place on GGPoker from August 1 – September 12 and will also award 33 bracelets. The 2020 edition was a record-breaking event, with the Online Main Event on GGPoker generating the largest prize pool for a single tournament in online poker history. It ended up awarding an astonishing $27,559,500 in total prize pool, and the biggest winner was Stoyan Madanzhiev who walked away with the top prize of $3,904,685.
The full details of the 2021 WSOP Online schedule, including the tournament buy-ins and guarantees have yet to be announced, but WSOP Director Gregory Chochon already hinted at a “robust” online schedule, raising the bar even higher than last year.
WSOP Super Circuit Online Series
The WSOP Super Circuit Online Series runs on GGPoker from May 1-20, 2021. Players will compete for 20 WSOP Circuit rings and a whopping $100 million guarantee! The schedule features the biggest WSOP Circuit Main Event ever, which comes with a $5 million guaranteed prize pool. It will take place from May 23-30 and has an entry fee of $525.
For the first time ever, the WSOP will award two additional Circuit rings via the Cash Game Rings. This promotion involves two cash game leaderboards, in poker games such as No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha, and the top 9 finishers in each leaderboard will get the chance to compete for T$2,600 in top prize plus a WSOPC Ring.
Las Vegas Main Event Satellites
The live WSOP festival is set to return to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas this fall and it will once again be headlined by the $10,300 Main Event which will get underway on November 4.
Officials have already released the dates for the online satellites – they will run from August 1 – October 1 and will be hosted by both the WSOP.com and GGPoker.
More details will be released soon.
