Bracelet Hunting Action Cranks Back Up With WSOP Online at GGPoker, WSOP.com

GGPoker is launching the WSOP Online in Ontario, Canada, and also partnering with Dusk Till Dawn for the UK Poker Championships.

Less than a month after events wrapped up at the World Series of Poker, the bracelet action returns for online poker players at GGPoker and WSOP.com.

The action runs at WSOP.com in the United States  and GGPoker for all international territories. This marks the third year of WSOP Online, which features plenty of side events at GG along with gold bracelet tournaments. The action runs at GGPoker from Aug. 14 – Sept. 27 and at WSOP.com from Sept. 10 – Oct. 18.

At GG, the $5,000 World Championship, also known as the WSOP Online Main Event, highlights the series. The championship event comes with a $20 million guarantee and features numerous Day 1 stages with Day 2 playing out Sept. 26.

“No one wanted to see this year’s WSOP come to an end,” WSOP Senior Vice President and executive director Ty Stewart said in a news release.

“However, in many ways, the return of WSOP Online is even more exciting. Together with GGPoker, we have a clear vision to make this festival annually the biggest deal in online poker so that the WSOP offers players the marquee event in both live and online poker each year.”

What to expect from WSOP Online at GGPoker

GGPoker will offer 33 bracelet events with buy-ins ranging from $100 to $10,000. The $500 Housewarming helps kick off the series on Aug. 15 with $2 million guaranteed. A Ukraine war charity event, the $1,111 Every 1 For War Relief, also helps get the action started on Aug. 14.

Another highlight is the $210 Million Dollar Mystery Bounty, featuring multiple starting flights and a  $10 million guarantee. As the name implies, players will find a $1 million top bounty prize with the second day beginning Aug. 22.

The $1,500 Millionaire Maker offers players $5 million guaranteed and $1 million for the winner. The final day of action is set for Aug. 29. Here’s a look at some other events that stand out on the schedule:

  • $10,000 Heads-up Championship – Aug. 27 (capped at 128 players)  
  • $10,000 Super MILLION$ High Roller, $5 million guaranteed – Aug. 28
  • $100 FLIP & Go, $1 million guaranteed – Sept. 5 (Go Stage)
  • $1,050 GGMasters High Roller Freezeout, $2 million guaranteed – Sept. 11
  • $400 Colossus, $3 million guaranteed – Sept. 19 (final day)

“Online bracelets are just as prestigious as live tournament bracelets,” GGPoker ambassador and six-time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu said. “I’m glad that we’re creating a new tradition to celebrate the online game, and I’m striving to add my first WSOP Online bracelet to my collection.”

GG plans numerous online satellites for all WSOP Online international bracelet events. This allows players of all bankrolls to win a tournament seat. Here’s a look at the entire bracelet schedule.

WSOP Roundup: Series Wraps Up With Big Wins from French, Canadian Players; TOC Continues

Gregory Teboul

With the Main Event now in the rearview mirror, most of the World Series of Poker has come to a close but there has been some big action over the last week. That includes big performances by some international competitors.

Players from France found the winner’s circle in the series’ final week including Julien Martini scoring bracelet No. 4. His countryman Gregory Teboul also won some gold and a massive payday as well.

The last week also produced winners from Canada, Latvia, Italy, the Netherlands, and more. Here’s a look at some of the action from last week.

Event #75: $777 Lucky 7s NLHE 7-Handed

This event kickstarted a nice run by French players. Gregory Teboul (pictured in lead image) captured his first bracelet in the Lucky 7s. That brought a huge score of $777,777 with the tournament drawing 6,891entries and a $4.7 million prize pool.

Just prior to this win, Teboul also won a $400 WSOP Daily Deepstack for $31,583 – not a bad few days in Sin City.

“I feel very, very well because it’s not nothing to win a tournament in Las Vegas,” he said after his bracelet win. “It’s my fifth year here and this was the good year.”

Event 78: $2,500 NLHE

Sebastien Aube, of Quebec City, Canada, made it to the top in this event for his first bracelet and $499,636. France’s Jilien Loire took second for $308,817. This was only Aube’s second WSOP cash and taking up the game again recently proved to be a nice decision.

“I played recreationally in my 20s and when I opened my last business in the pandemic, I came upon the MasterClass of Daniel Negreanu,” he said after the win. “I always liked the guy so was like, ‘Alright, let’s go.’ He really psyched me up. It’s the same recipe to succeed in poker as it is in business, so it really called to me.”

The tournament brought in 1,364 entries for a $3 million prize pool with France’s Axel Hallay finishing fourth for $162,627.

Event 79: $10,000 Razz Championship

It was another big day for a French player in this lowball championship. Julien Martini made his entry count, scoring his fourth bracelet for $328,906.

Martini’s previous WSOP titles came in Omaha Hi/Lo, Short Deck, and Eight-Game Mix. In 2018, he also  took third in the Razz Championship for $134,587. This year’s tournament produced 125 entries for a $1.2 million prize pool.

China’s Yueqi Zhu took third for $149,958 and 2021 Main Event winner Koray Aldemir, of Germany finished fourth for $111,991. Brazilian poker pro and GGPoker ambassador Felipe Ramos finished fifth for $84,683.

Online Event 10: $3,200 High Roller

Another Canadian found the top spot at the virtual WSOP tables.  Julien Perouse, of Toronto, won his first bracelet for $324,767 and his fourth series cash, which all came in online events. Israel’s Gabriel Nastasa found third place for $137,055.

Event 80: $600 Mixed NLHE; Pot Limit Omaha Deepstack

A field of 2,107 entries produced a $1.1 million prize pool in this mixed action. Romans Voitovs, of Latvia, brought home his first bracelet and $158,609. Brazilian Francisco Baruffi finished fourth for $54,172.

Online Event 12: $5,300 High Roller Freezeout Encore

Italy’s Gianluca “Inmyhouse” Speranza found success in the penultimate online event. He locked up his first bracelet and $324,625 in an event featuring 245 entries and a $2.1 million prize pool. Japan’s Kazuki “hyahhoo3” Ikeuchi scored a fourth-place finish for $83,300.

A look at other winners

Several other players made deep runs in the series’ final week. In Event 77: $1,500 Mixed NLHE; Pot Limit Omaha, Canada’s Vincent Lam was fourth for $91,800. The United Kingdom’s Richard Kellett finished fifth for $68,274.

Johannes Straver, of the Netherlands, made a huge run in Event 81: $5,000 Freezeout NLHE. He took runner-up for $411,279. Hungary’s Peter Turmezey took third for $292,665 and UK’s Toby Lewis finished fifth for $154,806.

In Event 82: $800 Eight-Handed NLHE Deepstack, another UK player found a nice finish. Gary Whitehead secured second place for $168,093 and Ireland’s Marc MacDonnell was fourth for $95,487.

Tomasz Gluszko, of Poland, reached third place in Event 84: $3,000 HORSE for $87,687. In Event 86: $10,000 Six-Handed NLHE Championship, the Czech Republic’s Pavel Plesuv took runner-up for $509,674. Israel’s Barak Wisbrod scored fifth for $164,304.

Espen Jørstad

The Main Event has now reached the “unofficial” final table with 10 players returning for Day 8 on Friday. Players have an off day and scheduled media interviews on Thursday.

Just 35 players returned on Wednesday and were scheduled to reach the final nine. After a long day that stretched into Thursday morning, however, tournament officials stopped play with 10 players remaining.

Event 74: $1,500 Bounty Pot Limit Omaha Eight-Handed

Canada’s Pei “Jerry” Li came out on top in this event for his first bracelet and $190,219. Florida’s Nolan King finished runner-up for $117,545 and the later stages of heads-up play saw an interesting scenario.

As pots shipped back and forth in a long battle, the two players agreed to skip two levels later in the action.

“He’s a very aggressive player, but so am I, so it made it a fun time heads up,” Li said afterward.

That seemed to go his way as he eventually closed out the event. This tournament attracted 1,390 entries, producing a prize pool of $1.9 million. Finland’s Eemil Tuominen took fourth for $63,231 and Belgium’s Eric Lescot finished sixth for $35,561.

Event #76: $1,979 Poker Hall of Fame Bounty

Members of the Poker Hall of Fame all received a freeroll into this event. Each of those also had a bounty on their head corresponding with the year in which he or she was inducted.

The event also was held in conjunction with the announcement of the latest addition to the Poker Hall of Fame. Layne Flack was named as the latest addition and will be inducted posthumously following his death last year.

In the action at the tables, South Korea’s Jinho Hong took home his first bracelet and $276,067 top prize. It’s been a nice few weeks for Hong, who also won the $3,500 NLHE Championship at the Wynn Poker Classic in late June for $696,011.

“The win at the Wynn Summer Classic was a bigger cash, but the bracelet is a lot more meaningful to me and hopefully in the future, a lot more Koreans keep on trying to get the bracelet and hopefully our country grows (in regards to poker),” he said afterward.

 The tournament produced a $1.5 million prize pool from 865 entries. Thailand’s Punnat Punsri finished runner-up for $170,615 with Germany’s Jakob Miegel taking third for $120,756.

Pavel Spirins, of Latvia, scored third for $63,225 and PartyPoker ambassador Yuri Dzivielevski continued a nice series run. The Brazilian finished sixth for $46,791 and also has a second, fourth, and fifth this summer.

Online Event 8: $7,777 Lucky 7s High Roller

England’s Harry “timexCNT” Lodge found the winner’s circle in this larger buy-in online poker event. He has produced several deep runs at the WSOP, but has always come up short of a bracelet.

That changed in this online event and he also took home $396,366. The event drew 161 entries for a $1.5 million prize pool.

 

A look at other winners

A few other players have also found some nice scores recently. In Online Event 9: $1,000 NLHE Online Bracelet Championship, Dragos “luxifer03” Trofimov, of Moldova, finished second for $147,585.

Event 73: $1,500 Razz saw Brazil’s Sergio Braga finish fifth for $25,198.

WSOP Update: Players from China, Canada, France, Austria Secure Bracelets; Neymar Jr. Joins Action

It was a nice few days for international players over the last week at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Several players scored bracelets including China’s Tong Li, who took home the largest of those scores for $1.5 million.

Canada’s Alex Livingston struck gold for the first time as well and then promptly lost his new bracelet along the way. Austria’s Stefan Lehner also was among the big winners, taking his first bracelet for $558,616.

Here’s a look at some players on the international poker scene scoring hardware and winning big on the Vegas Strip.

Event 9: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Livingston secured his first bracelet for $103,282 in this event. He now has $5.9 million in live tournament winnings.

Poker fans may recognize Livingston for finishing third in the Main Event in 2019 for $4 million. He made some news after winning the Stud event for actually losing his gold bracelet.

Another Canadian, Thomas Taylor,  finished third for $44,112.

Event 14: $1,500 Six-Handed NLHE

Vive la France! Frenchman Leo Soma scored not just his first career WSOP cash, but also his first bracelet in this event. 

The final day saw 16 players return and Soma was in the middle of the pack. He continued working his way back into contention throughout the day, eventually topping Thomas Schultz heads-up for the title and $456,889.

The tournament produced 2,392 entries for a $3.2 million prize pool. Schultz took home $282,358 for runner-up and Argentina’s Maximiliano Gallardo finished third for $203,451. 

Event 16: $3,000 NLHE

Most players would love winning a half-million dollars. Austria’s Stefan Lehner (pictured in lead image, courtesy WSOP) did just that in this event,  pocketing a nice $558,616.

This was his first bracelet and came after winning a WSOP Circuit ring in Aruba in December. Lehner detailed his road to victory, which included some major swings at the final table.

“I don’t have the words for it I think,” he told WSOP.com. “At the beginning I was second in chips but then I was short stacked all the time. So I played very well and I’m very happy that I have this [bracelet] now.”

The win came at a tough final table that included Alex Foxen, Joey Weissman, and David Miscikowski. Toby Boas scored runner-up for $345,244 in an event featuring 1,240 entries for a $3.3 million prize pool.

Event 19: $25,000 High Roller PLO

Omaha players with some big bankrolls found their way into this tournament with China’s Tong Li coming out as champion. This marked not just his WSOP cash, but also his first bracelet as well with a nice $1.5 million also headed his way.

The tournament brought in 264 for a $6.2 million prize pool. Fabian Brandes finished runner-up for $907,132 and 2021 WSOP player of the year Josh Arieh finished third for $644,365.

Event 20: $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw

Russia’s Denis Nesterenko took home the title and $108,250 in this lowball event. His previous best career cash was a win for $7,702.

This was Nesterenko’s first bracelet, but he also scored a WSOP Circuit ring in 202, also in 2-7 Triple Draw. The tournament saw 350 entries and a $467,250 prize pool. California’s Von Altizer took second place for $66,910.

A look at other players running deep at WSOP

Several other international players found some nice finishes over the last week as well. In Event 7:  $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, Brazil’s Murilo Figueredo finished fourth for $80,671.

Event 10: $10,000 Dealers Choice Six-Handed Championship saw Japan’s Naoya Kihara finish fifth for $73,453. Thailand’s Punnat Punsri also ran deep in Event 12: $25,000 High Roller Eight-Handed with a third-place finish for $593,481

In online action, Italy’s Gianluca “inmyhouse” Speranza notched third in the $400 Ultra Deepstack on Sunday for $50,218.

Brazilian soccer star Neymar Jr. also jumped in the WSOP action on Sunday as well.  A longtime poker player, he is also a PokerStars ambassador when not on the pitch.

Event 67: $10,000 Main Event

The Main Event is heating up as players move on to Day 4 on Friday. The bubble burst on Thursday and all players have now reached the money with 1,000 left in the field.

Those now hitting the rail will at least earn a min-cash of $15,000. The event brought in 6,650 players for a $62 million prize pool, bringing a winner payout of  $8 million. The runner-up takes $4.3 million with ninth-place even earning $1 million.

The series is seeing a bit of deja vu so far, with 2003 Main Event winner Chris Moneymaker among the top chip stacks returning to the Rio. Moneymaker took his seat at the ‘03 Main Event via an $86 PokerStars qualifier.

His win was captured on ESPN and helped kickstart the poker boom. Another big score would make for big news.

Florida’s Jessica Cai leads the field going into Day 4 with 1.8 million. She comes into the Main Event with only $78,454 in live tournament winnings.

“(It’s) surreal,” she told PokerGO’s Jeff Platt of her run so far. “I’m still in shock, but I’m definitely grateful to be here.”

International players running deep in Main Event

Those aren’t the only players making nice runs. Thailand’s Phachara Wongwichit finished second in chips with just under 1.8 million. A regular in Asian events, he has $1.5 million in live tournament winnings and is looking for his first bracelet.

Ehsan Amiri, of Australia, bagged 1.6 million for the fourth-place spot. He’s seeking his first bracelet and the best finish of his career.

Another player to watch is Italy’s Gianluca Speranza, who finished the day with 1.3 million. In 2017, he took runner-up in the WSOP Europe Main Event for €689,246.

Event 68: $1,111 Little One for One Drop

This event heads to the third day of action on Friday after three Days 1s to get things started. The tournament produced 3,797 entries for a $3.8 million prize pool with a winner’s haul of $396,445.

GGPoker qualifier Mathew Solitro, of Massachusetts, returns as chip leader with 228 players remaining. Chile’s Oscar Alache sits second in chips with a few other international players among the chip leaders as well.

Germany’s Jan Wagner checks in at fourth with France’s Idris Ambraisse sitting in fifth. Japan’s Masaki Nakamura returns ninth in chips.

Event 71: $1,500 Bounty Pot-Limit Omaha

This tournament began on Thursday with France’s Mourad Amokrane returning as chip leader.

He’s the only player to top 1 million chips so far and this could be a career-defining tournament for the Frenchman. Amokrane currently has only $21,244 in live tournament winnings.

Bulgaria’s Nikolay Yosifov is third in chips with Greece’s Miltiadis Kyriakides in fifth. Canada’s Kirk Dillon and Spain’s Paulo Villena are in sixth and seventh as well.

The tournament attracted 860 players with only 84 returning for Day 2. Others advancing to Day 2 include Calvin Anderson, Team GGPoker’s Felipe Ramos, and Dario Sammartino.

 Czech player scores first bracelet

The Czech Republic’s Dalibor Dula scored a nice win in Event 26: $1,000 Freezeout No Limit Hold’em. He topped a field of 1,358 entries for his first bracelet and $199,227. This marked Dula’s first trip to the WSOP and certainly came with some nice results.

“It hasn’t set in for me yet,” he told WSOP.com afterward. “I think in a week or so I will feel happy, right now I just feel shocked.”

The tournament attracted a $1.2 million prize pool with Cole Ferraro finishing second for $123,142. Dula now plans to play the rest of the WSOP as well as the WSOP Europe back in his home country in November.

Israelis finish 1st, 2nd; Lithuanian takes down Deepstack

The big finishes by Israeli players continued with two finishing in the top two spots in Event 33: $800 Eight-Handed NLHE Deepstack. Ran Koller took this title for his first bracelet and $269,478.

Another player from the country, Ran Ilani, took the runner-up position for $166,552. It’s believed to be the first time two players from Israel have played heads-up for a WSOP bracelet.

Some other players also fared well in this event with France’s Florian Guimond taking third for $124,671. Russian Oleg Titov finished fourth for $94,028 and Canada’s Kris Steinbach took fifth for $71,457. 

In Event 37: $1,500 Super Turbo Bounty, Lithuania’s Karolis Sereika won his first bracelet for $195,310. The win came in a fast-moving tournament that brought in 1,441 entries for a prize pool of $1.2 million.

He becomes the first Lithuanian player to win a bracelet in a live event. Sereika was active at the final table, knocking all but one player on his way to the title.

Addamo does it again

Michael Addamo (pictured in lead image) may be one of the hottest players on the high roller scene. After winning the Super High Roller Bowl in September for $5.4 million, he now adds another major score to his poker record.

The Australian won Event 38: $50,000 High Roller for another $1.1 million and his third bracelet. Being considered one of the best in the game keeps him motivated to continue working on his skills.

“It does put some pressure, because if you internalize and believe that, you can become complacent, and sometimes that might make you study less,” Addamo told PokerGO about being regarded by peers as one of the best players right now. “I just try and keep humble and try not to let it get to my head and just keep working and studying hard.”

Justin Bonomo finished in second for $700,228, just short of adding a fourth bracelet. The event brought in 81 entries for a $3.9 million prize pool.

Other players securing nice finishes

Beyond these winners, a few other players have made impressive finishes. In Event 25: $5,000 Six-Handed NLHE, Taiwan’s Tingyi Tsai took fourth for $161,756 in an event that featured 604 entries for a $2.7 million prize pool.

In Event 30: $1,500 Monster Stack, several players found big finishes for some nice prize money. Brazil’s Rafael Reis finished third for $288,101 with Sweden’s Christopher Andler taking fourth for $221,289.

Israel’s Mordechai Hazan took sixth for $132,812 and Belgian Johan Schumacher took eighth for $81,573.

In Event 29: $10,000 Short Deck Israel’s Moshe Gabay took fourth for $58,601. Portugal’s Joao Vieira finished one spot behind him for $42,885.

Tomorrow marks a full week of action at the World Series of Poker. The return of the live series has brought thousands of players to Las Vegas including many from outside the US.

Glaser, Benyamine run deep in $25,000 HORSE

Many in the poker world watched this event to see if 15-time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth could add a 16th. He didn’t quite get there and finished sixth for $95,329.

Well-regarded pros Benny Glaser, of the United Kingdom, and France’s David Benyamine were among the final three players.

Glaser was seeking his fourth bracelet and Benyamine looked for his second. Ultimately Benyamine bowed out in third for $236,626 and Glaser took runner-up for ​​$341,274.

In a final table full of poker stars, an unknown actually emerged as the champion. Jesse Klein owns a recruiting business in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and came into the event with only $23,000 in live tournament winnings. He seemingly came out of nowhere to secure the bracelet and $552,182.

Klein has been a high stakes cash game player, but doesn’t enter tournaments often. He had this event circled on his calendar however.

“If I was going to play something, I’d enjoy playing against the best of the best,” he told USPoker after his win. “The competition is great and it was just one of those things where it all came together.”

Glaser took the finish in stride with plenty of events ahead this fall..

 

Adrian Mateos gets close in $25,000 High Roller

Three-time bracelet winner Adrian Mateos seemed in a prime spot to add a fourth bracelet in the $25,000 NLHE High Roller. However, the Spanish superstar found himself on a short stack for much of the three-handed play.

Ultimately, California’s Tyler Cornell scored his first bracelet for $833,289. The Californian also finished eighth in the 2020 WSOP Online Main Event at GGPoker in 2020 for $328,305.

Mateos took third for $381,870 and Virginia’s Michael Liang finished runner-up for $515,014. This was the first event streamed on PokerGO this fall.

“It feels amazing,” Cornell told PokerGO after the win. “I’ve been trying to do this for a long time and I finally got a win.”

Canadian scores in $1,500 Dealers Choice

The seventh event of the series saw the first non-American win a bracelet. Jaswinder “Jesse” Lally topped a field of 307 for his first bracelet and $97,915. 

The tournament features 20 different games and Lally admitted to not knowing all of them when he got in the event.

“I was so excited to make the final table first of all, but now that my dream has come true, it’s just an amazing feeling,” the 58-year-old told WSOP.com afterward. “I learned a lot playing all these games. Some of these games I’ve never played like Badacey or Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Regular.”

Frenchman finishes runner-up in turbo event

In Event 10: $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty, a player from France just missed the winner’s circle in this quick tournament. Pierre Calamusa took runner-up for runner-up for $94,060 in an event that attracted 1,640 entries for a $1.5 million prize pool.

Calamusa now has $1.4 million in live tournament winnings and is sponsored by Winamax back in France. It’s been a nice week for the Winamax roster with Mateos also part of the company’s ambassador roster.

Michael Perrone, of Chicago, Illinois, took the top spot in the Super Turbo Bounty for his first bracelet and $152,173.

What’s ahead at this year’s WSOP

Players will once again find a packed schedule with buy-ins to suit every bankroll. The WSOP also regularly features poker variants not seen in many other tournaments as well.

The $500 “Reunion” is one of the events kicking off the series on the first weekend. The event features a $5 million guarantee and should produce a huge field.

Other massive-field favorites like the Millionaire Maker, Colossus, and Monster Stack are also back on the schedule. Those with bigger bankrolls will also find numerous $10,000 events as well as other nosebleed buy-in events like the $50,000 Poker Players Championship.

Again this year, the WSOP is also running several events in conjunction with the $10,000 Main Event, which runs from Nov. 4-17. That includes some high roller action, with a $100,000 No Limit Hold’em event set for Nov. 21. Here’s a look at the complete schedule.

Players ready to go

While uncertainty remains about the turnout for the series, numerous big names are ready to get back in the action. Players have been active on Twitter about their plans in getting back to Las Vegas.

Daniel Negreanu is promising to resume his popular vlogging from the series He’s also been selling some of his WSOP action recently.

Italy’s Max Pescatori, a four-time bracelet winner, also seems ready for action as well.

Poker legend Doyle Brunson has even said he may be coming back to play in the series again this year. He planned on making the 2019 series his last but it looks like he’ll be making his return at age 88.

Daily Deepstacks offer even more tournament action

Players with smaller bankrolls may also want to check out the Daily Deepstack tournaments. These non-bracelet events feature smaller buy-ins but can produce huge fields and nice payouts.

Most Daily Deepstacks are held daily in the Pavilion room and begin on Sept. 30. Here’s a look at those events:

  • 1 pm – $250 NLHE
  • 4 pm – $200 NLHE
  • 7 pm – $400 NLHE Turbo
  • 10 pm – $150 NLHE
  • Mondays, 5 pm – $250 HORSE (starting Oct. 4)
  • Wednesdays, 9 am – $250 NLHE Seniors (starting Oct. 6)

Vaccine mandates, travel restrictions may affect WSOP

WSOP organizers were hoping for the largest series in the history of the festival. However, that may now be a challenge.

Players are required to be vaccinated to play in the series. The WSOP is using CLEAR’s Health Pass free mobile app for players to offer proof of vaccination. Players will only have to provide vaccination proof once and can then head to the registration area to play.

The series will also have on-site vaccination proof registration, which may benefit international players. However, with travel restrictions to some degree still in force in many countries, international player turnout may be reduced.

A few big-name European pros recently told PokerScout that they wouldn’t be playing. Canada’s Kristen Bicknell isn’t playing because of the vaccine mandate. Neither is her fiancé Alex Foxen. Turnout will be interesting to watch.

Following the action at home

Those who can’t make it to Las Vegas can still check out some of the action via PokerGO. The streaming service will be showing 26 events. The live streaming begins with the $25,000 High Roller on Oct. 4 and runs through Nov. 23.

Viewers at home can also follow every day of the $10,000 Main Event. PokerGO will show the tournament from start to finish.

In total, the platform will stream 36 days of WSOP action. PokerScout will also offer regular updates as well. Here’s a look at the complete streaming schedule
