The World Series of Poker has announced the return of the WSOP Online 2021 domestic series featuring 33 gold bracelet events taking place from July 1 through August 1 on WSOP.com.
“Poker deserves a big finish to 2021 and we’re looking to heat things up this summer,” said Ty Stewart, Executive Director for the WSOP. “We expect to offer great value tournaments as well as comprehensive satellites to qualify for Las Vegas in the fall.”
The WSOP Online 2021 series offers events with buy-ins ranging from $333 up to through the $7,777 No Limit Lucky 7’s High Roller on July 25. While the Main Event of the series is the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em Championship which will be held on July 31, it’s the final tournament of the series, the $500 NLHE Grande Finale, that boasts a $1 million guarantee, the largest ever guarantee offered on WSOP.com.
The WSOP, known for its creative branding of its tournaments, has broken down the online schedule into a variety of themed weeks.
Premiere Week gets things started with the $500 NLHE Big 500 Kick Off on July 1st and also features the time-tested tournaments “Lucky Sevens” $777 NLHE (July 7) and “Crazy Eights” $888 NLHE Event (July 8).
That’s followed by Micro Madness, which features a string of four NLHE gold bracelet events with a buy-in of $500 or less. PLO Week is next up in which three of the four featured Pot Limit Omaha events will play out.
Finally, Championship Week rolls out the first-ever $1,000 Online PLO Championship (July 26) as well as the $3,200 High Roller Championship (July 27), and the aforementioned $1,000 No Limit Hold’em Championship.
Currently, players located in Nevada and New Jersey will be eligible to register and compete. And as in previous WSOP Online events, players do not need to be residents of those states, they simply need to be geo-located located in its borders to take part.
With regards to any speculation that WSOP.com may go live in one of the other U.S. states that have more recently legalized and regulated online poker, such as Pennsylvania or Michigan, the WSOP.com stated that “news about availability of WSOP.com in additional states will be released pending regulatory approval.”
Additionally, players outside of the U.S. should be looking forward to an announcement of an international WSOP Online event, similar to that which took place on GGPoker in 2020.
The live, in-person 2021 World Series of Poker is currently scheduled to take place from September 30 through November 23 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas with a complete schedule that has yet to be announced.
