  • The schedule will be headlined by the $5,000 Main Event, with WSOP marquee events also expected to return

With the Online Bracelet Series ending last month we can now look forward to the international leg of the 2023 WSOP Online Bracelet Series will kick off on August 20 on GGPoker.

There is no official announcement yet from the operator but sources say the series will span 44 days, concluding on October 2. It will run simultaneously with the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) hosted by rival site PokerStars.

2023 WSOP Online Bracelet Series

Neither GGPoker nor the WSOP has released details regarding the upcoming series, but we can get a picture of what the festival would look like based on previous editions. Players will likely be on the hunt for gold bracelets across 33 events for six long weeks, from August 20 to October 2, with entry fees expected to range from $100 to $10,000.

As usual, the series will be headlined by the WSOP Main Event which will likely retain its $5,000 buy-in. The guarantee could reach $25 million, up from $20 million in 2022. WSOP marquee events such as COLOSSUS, MILLIONAIRE MAKER and Closer, are also expected to make a comeback.

There’s a high possibility that GGPoker will also run a separate online bracelet series on its Ontario platform.

GGPoker Online Bracelet Series Past Editions – Key Stats

The online bracelet series was created in 2020 as people were under home quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That time, the live series was cancelled and organizers decided to come up with an online version to allow players to still compete for gold bracelets. It’s also during that time that the GGPoker-WSOP partnership was born, with the former becoming the official host of the online series.

The inaugural series, which featured 54 events, was a massive success with almost $150 million in total prizes paid out after attracting 239,754 entries. The $5,000 WSOP Online Main Event earned a Guinness World Record for being the largest tournament in online poker history, creating $27.5 million in total prize pool, smashing its $25 million guarantee.

The 2021 edition was another successful series, awarding over $90 million across 33 online bracelet events. It drew 127,979 entrants. The online bracelet series returned for a third edition in 2022 and was scheduled almost a month after the live festival. It once again featured 33 events and ended up awarding $86,472,093 in total prize money after attracting 131,184 entries.
