After having to postpone the 2020 World Series of Poker due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, WSOP officials promised poker players they would soon have a solution so that would "allow players to chase WSOP glory from their homes." On Monday, the WSOP took the first step towards fulfilling that promise. The WSOP has announced 31 events for players in the regulated American markets served by WSOP.com and 54 events on GGPoker for players located outside of the United States. Before being postponed, the 2020 WSOP was scheduled to award 101 bracelets including 14 that were going to be played on WSOP.com for players in New Jersey and Nevada. "It wouldn't be summer without WSOP," said Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the WSOP. "While we are thrilled to be reopening our venues and optimistic about future offline events, we couldn't be more excited about deepening our relationship with GGPoker and watching some history unfold online this summer." This marks the first time that players located outside of the United States have been able to compete for a WSOP bracelet online. Players inside Nevada borders first played for a WSOP bracelet in 2015. In 2018, players in New Jersey played in bracelet events alongside their Nevada-based colleagues following the intra-state merger of player pools in New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware. "There's nothing in the world like winning a WSOP bracelet," said Daniel Negreanu, who joined GGPoker as an ambassador earlier this year. "Bringing this experience online will open the door for a new generation of poker players to feel the rush of competing for the game's biggest prize." WSOP.com is currently not available in Pennsylvania. Stewart also indicated that PokerCentral, owner of PokerGO and the official streaming partner of the WSOP, will also be involved in creating content including live streams, highlight packages as well as "virtual bracelet ceremonies" with interviews with each winner. The decision to partner with GGPoker for the WSOP bracelet events just weeks after the conclusion of the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series on the growing online poker site which awarded $6,728,197.80 over 18 ring events and nearly $128 million over 498 events scheduled around those ring events. WSOP.com Online Bracelet Events 2020 The WSOP.com online bracelet events kick-off on July 1 with one event each day through the month of July culminating with the $1,000 buy-in Championship event on Friday, July 31. There are six other events with a $1,000 buy-in as well as a $1,500 and a $3,200 High Roller event. According to a press release, WSOP.com players will also be able to win their share of $100,000 to be awarded to top performers in July's bracelet events. [table id=49 /] GGPoker Online WSOP Bracelet Events 2020 Players who are able to play on GGPoker will begin chasing bracelets on July 19. The event schedule for the WSOP bracelet events on GGPoker has not been announced but the company indicated they plan to "unveil its bracelet schedule on a rolling basis". The final event concludes on September 6. "With over $100M in guarantees during the WSOPC Super Series in May, it's clear that GGPoker and the WSOP make a good pair," said Steve Preiss, GGPoker's head of Poker Operations. "We're excited to create bracelet events that the community will embrace, as well as innovative programming with PokerGO." Buy-ins are expected to be similar to those offered by GGPoker in the WSOP Super Circuit Online where buy-ins ranged from $50 up to $25,000.
After nearly a month of non-stop online poker action, the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series on GGPoker has come to an end. For the first time, players outside of the United States were afforded the opportunity to compete in 18 different online WSOP Circuit gold ring events in a series that promised more than $100,000,000 in total prize money. If anyone had their doubts about the partnership of these “two like-minded global organizations” the numbers released by GGPoker this week indicate that not only did the series perform up to the hopes of the WSOP and GGPoker but it was incredibly popular with the players as well. The $100M Guarantee In addition to the WSOP brand, the $100,000,000 top-line total series guarantee was a big part of the initial marketing push. Billed as the largest guarantee ever placed on an online series, GGPoker looked to solidify itself as a major player when it comes to offering big-time online series. The WSOP Super Circuit smashed the $100M number by more than 30% (which was officially $102,365,000), delivering $134,706,274 in total prize money. GGPoker was able to get there by surrounding the 18 WSOP Circuit gold rings events in a massive schedule that offered a total of 516 tournaments which in turn drew in 485,851 entries. “Over 500 events, more than 485,000 tournament entries, and, of course, $134 million in prizes awarded. The GGPoker community fully embraced and supported the WSOP Super Circuit Series,” said Jean-Christophe Antoine, Head of Business Development for GGPoker. Gold Ring Events Outperform While there were literally hundreds of events taking place, the main focus of the series was clearly on the WSOP Circuit events. These 18 tournaments represented $28 million of the initially advertised guarantees. When all was said and done, the gold ring events ended up paying out a total of $46,881,552, besting the guarantees by just over 160%. Every single event surpassed its guarantee by a considerable amount. Event #17 ($5M Gtd Main Event) stood out above the rest when measuring the dollar amount exceeding the guarantee. It’s $4,290,050 overage allowed ‘schimmelgodx’ to turn their $1,000 buy-in into a $1.271 million score. Other tournaments including Event #2 ($50 KICK-OFF) and Event #18 ($500 The Closer) saw its $500K guarantee more than double. The closest any tournament came to missing a guarantee wasn’t really close at all. Event #11 ($210 Deepstack Bounty Hunters) drew 3,297 runners to generate a $659,400 prize pool, well abovt its $500K guarantee. While the 18 events represented just 3% of the total schedule, the 126,756 entries they generated was good for 26% of the total number of festival’s 485,851 entries. “The support of the gaming community for the WSOPC on GGPoker was insane,” said Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the World Series of Poker. “No guarantees were too big. Congratulations to all 18 ring event winners.” Incredible ROI’s As impressive as the prize pools and entrants have been, the numbers that really turned heads have been the first-place payouts. Of the 18 gold ring events, 13 paid the winner six-figures or more and eight of those tournaments had buy-ins of less than $1,000. In Event #2 ($50 KICK-OFF), ‘JuanMartinDelPotro54’ turned a $50 buy-in into a massive $137,120 score for a 2,742% ROI in that tournament. In Event #9 ($100 Mini Main Event), ‘miya111’ walked away with $278,361.52 for a $100 buy-in. For many, especially those who play at those stakes, that’s life-changing money. The only tournaments where players didn’t earn more than 100x on their investment was in the High Rollers where there are fewer eligible participants. In Event #8 ($25,000 High Roller Championship), ‘800-522-4700’ earned the biggest payday of the series from the largest prize pool of the series. With their victory, they took home $2,198,291.68, earning 87x on their money. While in Event #10 ($10,000 PLO High Roller Championship), after Pascal Lefrancois bested the 234-player field he turned his $10,000 buy-in into $442,040.69, which was the lowest return on investment for a winner at 44x. In total, the winners of the 18 WSOP Circuit online events hauled in $6,728,197.85. Or roughly 5% of the total amount awarded in the series. WSOP Online Circuit Ring Events [table id=48 /]
