WSOP Announces 85 Online Bracelet Events For July-September Festival
This summer is not going to be a washout for World Series of Poker (WSOP) players and fans as they can now look forward to more than two months of online action, with the announcement of 85 online bracelet events!
Over the weekend, players were finally offered a glimpse of the schedule on WSOP.com, which was leaked on Twitter by South Korean poker star Joseph Cheong.
Everything was made official on June 8 when WSOP organizers issued a press release.
According to the presser, WSOP.com will play host to 31 bracelet events, while a further 54 will take place on GGPoker.
2020 WSOP Online Bracelet Schedule
The initial schedule covers the 31 events on WSOP.com, scheduled for the whole month of July. Each day throughout the month, one bracelet event will take place, though it currently remains unclear whether each event will be a one-day affair or will extend to Day 2.
The events will be played in two main formats, No-Limit Hold’em and Omaha. The schedule also includes traditional live events such as the Monster Stack, Senior’s Event, and the Big 50. The online festival culminates in the $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em Championship on July 31, and also features an Online Bracelet Series Leaderboard, awarding extra prizes on top of the highly-coveted gold bracelet.
WSOP.com will also run plenty of satellites for players with limited bankroll. Price starts at $1. The online bracelet events running on WSOP.com are only exclusive for players based in Nevada or New Jersey, which means those in Delaware are not allowed to take part.
All of the events will take place at 3:00 pm daily, with buy-ins starting at $400. Players can choose from a variety of structures and formats, such as Turbo, Super Turbo, Deepstack, Turbo Deepstack, Freezeout, 6-Max, and 8-Max.
Other key highlights include two High Roller events, both having an entry fee of $1,500 and $3,200.
GGPoker To Host 54 Online Bracelet Events
WSOP’s newest online partner GGPoker will host an additional 54 bracelet events, running from July 19 through to September 6. The official schedule for these events are yet to be finalized, but initial details mean that there will be an overlap with the online festival on WSOP.com. But the WSOP assured everyone that the GGPoker line-up will accommodate a wide range of players.
Ty Stewart, WSOP executive director, said they are looking forward to a more exciting and stronger partnership with GGPoker. Both brands recently joined forces in the massively successful WSOP Super Circuit Online Series in May.
