The World Series of Poker Online bracelet events captured the attention of the poker world this weekend but they were by no means the only opportunity for U.S.-based players to take down a big-time tournament.

For starters, WSOP.com is running the WSOP.com Online Championships right alongside of the 2020 WSOP. The Online Championships is a month-long series with $6 million in total prize money guaranteed and this weekend the series featured three six-figure prize pools.

One of the biggest tournaments of the weekend was the WSOP.com OC #21 ($200,000 Sunday Special Edition) which saw 613 players (384 rebuys) post the $320 buy-in and shatter the guarantee to the tune of a $299,100 prize pool. 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event final tablist Aram ‘X69Podheiser’ Zobian took home the win, adding $43,907.88 to his bankroll. ‘bbqnub1’ finished as the runner-up, earning $32,512.17 while Jason ‘Gunner_Q10’ Gunn shot up to third and walked away with $23,928.

Uke ’ooopsmybad’ Dauti took down the $100 buy-in WSOP.com OC#20 ($100,000 Player Appreciation) for a $30,411.99 score. Mike ‘SammyTwizz’ Azzaro captured second place for an $18,750.99 score while ‘betfoldwin’ wrapped up in third place for $13,496.40.

The third six-figure prize pool of the day was in the WSOP.com OC #22 ($75,000 Sunday 55). The $75,000 guarantee turned into a $120,500 prize pool as 687 players (1,365 rebuys + 358 add-ons) fired in the $55 buy-in event. Stuart ‘studog’ Gold outlasted the field and banked $28,317.50 with the victory. ‘edypzed’ grabbed $15,062.50 for finishing in second and Francis ‘Specialfx’ Romano grabbed the bronze and $9,881 for their efforts.

While WSOP.com was cranking up the prize pools, PokerStars was slashing the buy-ins on their Pennsylvania and New Jersey Sunday Majors to lure in large fields.

The PokerStars PA Half Price Sunday Special saw 2,172 entries sieze the opportunity to pay just $50 to take a shot at a five-figure payday. ‘Savant76’ scored the win and took home the $14,730 first-place prize. ‘cowboydollars’ has a few extra bucks thanks to his $10,499.09 score as the runner-up. ‘DaveyJoneLocker’ wrapped up in third place and earned $7,484.12.

The PokerStars PA Half Price Sunday High Roller saw a huge boost in attendance this week with 509 players firing the $125 tournament. That’s up from 149 players who played last week with the regular High Roller buy-in of $250. ‘JonCaron215’ took home the bulk of the $58,026 prize pool by claiming the $10,267.58 first-place prize. ‘flipper12x’ finished in second place and took home $7,153.83. And ‘johnnyboat46’ stood on the final step of the podium, earning $4,984.60 for third.

In New Jersey, there was a three-way chop in the $100 PokerStars NJ Half Price Sunday Special. Even though ‘zhatka’ was the official winner, earning $6,556.65 it was runner-up ‘HustlersTavern’ who locked up the biggest payday of the tournament, logging off with $7,499.44. Finally, ‘Vote Kanye’ was the third party in the deal, securing $6,841.14 for third place.

‘MyCousinVinny5’ grabbed the gold in the $215 buy-in partypoker NJ Sunday $35K Gtd for $10,280. He was followed by ‘chomeking’, who earned $6,769.38 as the runner-up and ‘Whosyourdoddy’ who fell in third place which was good for $4,883.
