The bracelet events are set for Oct. 23 and 30. The three events act as the finale to this year’s WSOP Online.
“Winning authentic WSOP gold bracelets is one big reason to play on the licensed and regulated WSOP.ca site in Ontario,” WSOP executive director Ty Stewart said in a news release. “We’re expecting these tournaments will be some of the biggest of the year, therefore it’s a great way to celebrate a highly successful launch.”
Here’s a look at the schedule for the Ontario bracelet events.
- Event 1: BIG 150 Ontario MILLION$ – final stage, Oct. 23
- Event 2: $210 Omaholic Bounty MILLION$ – final stage, Oct. 30
- Event 3: $1,050 GGMasters Online Championship – final stage, Oct. 30
“Three WSOP bracelets will be won this month by Ontario-based players, and I’m thrilled to be the one to reveal this exciting news,” GG ambassador and six-time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu said.
“Poker is in a great place right now in my home province, and it’s so cool that Ontarian players can play for a WSOP bracelet from home. What a way to end WSOP Online 2022!”
