World Series of Poker Releases Complete Fall Schedule With 88 Events, Festival Returns Sept. 30

The World Series of Poker returns to the Rio in Las Vegas with 88 gold bracelet events running Sept. 30 to Nov. 23.

The World Series of Poker is back. Series officials released the official schedule on Tuesday and the festival becomes the biggest in the event’s history.

Players looking to make the trip to Las Vegas will find 88 gold bracelet events running Sept. 30 to Nov. 23 at the Rio. Organizers announced earlier this year that the series would move to the fall this year after running mostly online in 2020.

For international players, the WSOP also announced GGPoker as the exclusive partner offering online satellites outside the US. With just a bit over three months until action gets underway, many rounders will be ready to get back to the tables.

“We could not be more excited to welcome everyone back to Las Vegas and the Rio,” WSOP Vice President and tournament director Jack Effel said in a news release. “The entire WSOP team is hard at work to ensure players have the absolute best experience possible.”

What can players expect at this year’s WSOP?

The WSOP returns after live poker was basically non-existent for much of 2020. With vaccinations curtailing COVID-19 cases across the US, many major tournaments have returned.

That now includes the biggest spectacle in poker after a 26-month absence. A full slate of tournaments is on tap this fall.

“Make no mistake, the 2021 WSOP will be the real deal and we’re preparing for a full house,” WSOP’s executive director Ty Stewart said.

“Throughout the storied history of the WSOP, this year will be particularly memorable and we’re preparing for a poker reunion all players can celebrate. We’re beyond thrilled to offer a complete schedule of can’t-miss events including all our flagships and the variety players deserve.”

Favorite events back at the Rio

Those looking to get in the action will find plenty of old favorites. That includes several of the series’ signature events attracting huge fields and major prize pools.

Events like the Millionaire Maker, Monster Stack, Double Stack, Colossus, and The Closer will run Oct. 8 to Nov. 19. Those events will usher in the weekends throughout the series.

One of these tournaments will kick off each Friday and Saturday. Other popular events on the schedule include:

  • $25,000 Heads Up Championship (Oct. 5) – The buy-in is now $25,000 and capped at 64 players. Big names should be out in force for this one.
  • $1,000 Seniors Championship (Oct. 27 – 28) – This has become a highly anticipated event and is now a two-day event beginning this year. Players get one optional re-entry per flight. 
  • Freezeouts (Oct. 6, 13, 18, 21, and 24) – Those who don’t like unlimited re-entries, or re-entries at all, are in luck. Players will find plenty of freezeout action starting on Oct. 6. That includes popular buy-in levels ranging from $500 to $5,000.
  • 2-7 No Limit Single Draw – Lowball fans will once again find this game in the mix. This format has been added to the Poker Players’ Championship (PPC), now featuring nine games. A $2,500 version of the PPC also runs Oct. 28 with some 2-7 Single Draw action.

Organizers add some new events events

WSOP organizers freshen up the schedule every year with some new events and that includes 2021. With players getting back to the action, the WSOP launches “The Reunion” on Oct. 1. The $500 tournament features a $5 million guarantee.

Players can choose from three starting flights on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Some other new events include:

  • $1,979 Poker Hall of Fame Bounty (Nov. 17) – This event honors members of the Poker Hall of Fame, which was founded in 1979. Members earn a free buy-in and have a bounty on their heads corresponding to the year they were inducted.
  • $1,000 Flip and Go presented by GGPoker (Oct. 10) – Everyone’s all in on the first hand in this popular online format. Players receive three cards and choose two. One player wins the table, automatically moving into the money. The tournament then reverts to a traditional structure.
  • $50,000 Pot Limit Omaha (Nov. 19) – This is now the highest PLO buy-in ever at the WSOP. The tournament highlights a high roller series scheduled after the Main Event. Players will find major stakes including $50,000, $100,000 and $250,000 No Limit Hold’em events.

Non-bracelet Daily Deepstacks back at the Rio

Beyond the traditional bracelet events, the WSOP also runs daily events at bargain prices. Daily Deepstacks tournaments feature big fields and nice payouts for winners.

Tournaments run in the Pavilion and kick off on Sept. 30. Here’s a look at what to expect:

  • 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)

Players heading to Las Vegas can also play legal online poker at WSOP.com. That includes satellites for bracelet events.

Qualifiers are already underway on WSOP.com for players in Nevada and New Jersey. These run throughout the series and WSOP.com awarded over 1,000 seats in 2019. 

International players can also qualify for WSOP events via GGPoker.

More bracelets also up for grabs this summer

The WSOP may be in the fall, but rounders can also score a bracelet this summer. The WSOP Online runs July 1 to Aug. 1 with 33 bracelets on the line at WSOP.com.

The bracelet action then shifts to GGPoker for international players. Another 33 bracelet events are planned for players outside the US from Aug. 1 to Sept. 12. An official schedule hasn’t been released yet however.

What to know before heading to the 2021 WSOP

Along with a complete schedule, WSOP organizers have detailed things to remember before heading to Las Vegas. Here are some key reminders when booking that trip to Sin City.

International players

All international players are required to bring an additional form of identification. The ID must show a residential address, such as a signed lease agreement, utility bill, or a mobile phone bill.

Players from outside the US must also have a valid passport. Foreign players from non-tax treaty countries are also subject to up to 30 percent tax withholding. 

Online registration

To avoid lines and congestion, players are asked to utilize the online or mobile registration to pay and sign up for events. WSOP uses the Bravo Poker Live app for this process.

Players who register online will need to visit the Belize Ballroom and have their identification validated. Once verified, players can simply pick events online via the app or use the self-service kiosks located throughout the Convention Center. Registration opens in August.

In-person registration

The main registration area remains in the Tropical Ballroom, near the back end of the Rio Convention Center. More stations have been added to the main registration cage and the VIP cage.

The registration area opens Sept. 30 and remains open 24 hours a day through Nov. 23. Guests are required to present valid photo identification along with their Caesars Rewards card and payment to enter events. 

Caesars Rewards

This area remains in the Rio Rotunda as a central location for players to obtain loyalty cards. Caesars Rewards kiosks will also be available for players to reprint their card without having to visit a representative.

Methods of payment

To buy into an event, players can use cash, credit/debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express), wire transfers, cashier’s checks, Rio gaming chips, Rio or tournament buy-in chips or credits.

Also, players can use ACH transfers this year. Additional fees will be incurred on all ACH, credit, or debit card transactions.

WSOP tournament account

Players can wire in funds for WSOP events or place money on account when they arrive. After setting up an account at the WSOP Main Cage, players can register online or via mobile device.

A seat card can then be printed at a kiosk – avoiding the need to use the registration line.

Payouts now available in Palma Ballroom

For efficiency and reduced wait times, players can begin the payout process in Palma before collecting winnings in the Tropical Ballroom.

Players can request one of the following methods of payment:

  • cash
  • wire transfer
  • casino chips
  • check
  • tournament account deposit

Valid ID 

Players are reminded to bring a valid government-issued picture identification with current residential address. A secondary form of ID, such as a bill or statement confirming address, is also requested. 

Winners will be required to provide a valid picture ID. Tax forms will be completed for those with winnings in excess of $5,000 net of the buy-in.

Hotel specials

The Rio and all Caesars Entertainment resorts in Las Vegas will offer reduced hotel room rates for WSOP players. Players will need to use the special advanced booking code WSOPMwhen reserving rooms.

The Rio offers players rates on select dates as low as $47. Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Paris, Flamingo, Harrah’s, Bally’s, and The Linq also have discounted WSOP player rates.

Live WSOP Shifts to Fall This Year; Organizers Also Announce WSOP Europe, Summer Online Events

The World Series of Poker returns to live action this fall, running Sept. 30 to Nov. 23 at the Rio in Las Vegas.

The World Series of Poker announced the return to live action on Thursday, only now moving events to the fall. The series also announced an expanded summer online poker schedule and the return of WSOP Europe.

Many poker fans will be pleased to see the return of a live series. The summer poker festival now runs from Sept. 30 to Nov. 23 at the Rio in Las Vegas. A complete schedule hasn’t been released yet, but is expected to be available this summer.

“This year, more than ever, we embrace our role at the WSOP to deliver memorable experiences and bring this community of poker lovers back together,” WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said in a news release.

“In 2021, the theme is ‘get vaccinated and get back to Vegas.’”

Details on the live WSOP this fall

While a complete schedule isn’t available, there are a few events that WSOP officials released. That includes the $10,000 Main Event and here are some details:

  • Dates: Nov. 4-17
  • Starting flights: Nov. 4-7
  • Day 2 dates: Nov. 8 for players in first two starting flights (Nov. 4-5). Nov. 9 for players in final two starting flights (6-7) 
  • Day 3 and beyond: Players combine into one field on Nov. 10.

A few other events for the first weekend were also outlined on Thursday. A charity event benefiting frontline healthcare workers helps kick off the series. 

That same weekend, a $25,000 HORSE event offers some action for high rollers. A No Limit Hold‘em event billed as “The Reunion” also promises a $5 million guarantee.

WSOP officials plan extensive COVID-19 safety measures and to comply with all Nevada regulations. That includes social distancing and limits on player capacity.

WSOP Online returns this summer

After huge numbers in the WSOP Online bracelet events last summer, the series promised more at WSOP.com. In 2020, the series also ran international bracelet events at GGPoker.

The American side of the series awarded $27 million in 31 events. That made it the biggest series in US regulated online poker history.

At GG, the Main Event became the largest online tournament in history, paying out $27.5 million. The entire festival awarded $150 million with 45 events paying out more than $1 million.

This year, the WSOP confirmed to PokerScout that an international series is again in the works. Details on those plans haven’t been released yet however.

At WSOP.com this summer, players can again expect numerous WSOP Online bracelet events. All tournaments will be held on the site’s All-American Poker Network beginning July 1 for players in Nevada and New Jersey.

WSOP officials released a few details of what to expect. A $1,000 championship closes the series and qualifiers will run for as little as $1.

A complete WSOP Online schedule is expected to be available on April 15.

The series is subject to regulatory approval, but WSOP officials are pleased to return to Europe.

“We hope and anticipate travel restrictions will ease by the fall,” Stewart said. “It’s important to us that we have an excellent tournament schedule available to our European players.”

Only a few details have been released, but here’s a look at what is known so far:

  • 15 gold bracelet events
  • €10,000 Main Event
  • €50,000 High Roller

PokerScout will offer more details when they become available.

WSOP Main Event Shifts Online with Live Final Tables on Two Continents, $1M Heads-Up Battle

Most of this year's WSOP Main Event moves online at GGPoker.

There will be a World Series of Poker Main Event this year after all. Series officials announced on Friday the $10,000 championship will begin online with players around the world able to take part.

That’s not all. The specifics offer a completely revamped event because of the Coronavirus pandemic. That includes two separate live final tables at the Rio in Las Vegas and King’s Casino in the Czech Republic.

Winners of those events will play for the bracelet and an extra $1 million in a winner-take-all battle in Vegas. For international players, the Main Event begins Nov. 29 at GGPoker. US-based players get their half of the tournament started on Dec. 13 at WSOP.com.

“There must be a world champion in 2020,” WSOP executive director Ty Stewart said in a news release. “Poker’s history is too important. It’s a unique format for the Main Event, but this is a unique year. We want to keep players’ health and safety top of mind and still deliver a great televised showcase for the game we love.”

WSOP Main Event – 2 continents, 2 final tables, 1 heads-up champion

This year’s tournament may be the Main Event, but it certainly comes with some changes. How does it all work? Play globally and in the US begins online on WSOP.com or GGPoker.com. 

Players can expect the event’s usual freezeout format and players can enter once at either site. WSOP.com and GGPoker promise “the longest levels and deepest stacks ever offered on the online platform.”

Once play reaches nine players, the action moves to a live table and both sites will pay out winners independently. When one player is left at each, those two will head to Las Vegas to play in a heads-up duel.

Most of this year's WSOP Main Event moves online at GGPoker.

Additionally, Caesars and GGPoker are putting up $1 million in prize money but with no second place in this showdown. The two players will compete in a winner-take-all format for seven figures.

WSOP officials have promised play at live tables will be subject to special COVID rules and procedures. Players will also undergo health screenings prior to live play.

ESPN will once again air the 2020 Main Event with Lon McEachern and Norman Chad calling the action.

GGPoker adds to growing WSOP presence

For GGPoker, the event comes after a record-setting WSOP Online series this summer. The site now expands its relationship with the series, allowing players around the world to compete in the Main Event.

“We’re very happy to continue to deepen our relationship with WSOP,” GGPoker head of poker operations Steve Preiss said. “It was a huge summer of record-setting action on GGPoker and we’re excited to offer players access to the biggest tournament of all.”

For GG players, there will be three starting flights to take advantage of. Play will be paused each day after about 12 hours of play and when the final nine players are left.

That final table is then set to play out at King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic, and filmed for TV. Here’s how the complete international schedule looks: 

WSOP Main Event – international schedule

  • Day 1A – Sunday, Nov. 29
  • Day 1B – Saturday, Dec. 5
  • Day 1C – Sunday, Dec. 6
  • Day 2 – Play down to nine players on Monday, Dec. 7
  • Final table – Play continues to a winner on Tuesday, Dec.15 at King’s Casino in Czech Republic

American players in the legal states of New Jersey and Nevada can get in the action on WSOP.com. Play follows a similar schedule as in the international half of the tournament but with only a single starting flight.

WSOP Main Event – US schedule

  • Day 1 – Sunday, Dec. 13
  • Day 2 – Play down to nine players on Monday, Dec. 14
  • Final table – Play continues to a winner on Monday, Dec. 28, at the Rio in Las Vegas

Heads-up in Las Vegas for a million bucks

With US and international winners named, the action shifts to heads-up play at the Rio in Las Vegas. That duel is set for Dec. 30 with ESPN filming the event.

While everything looks firmed up now, COVID-19 has a way of changing that. Those types of issues could alter the live schedule. WSOP officials reserve the right to continue the event online or reschedule live play as needed.

Another issue could arise if a player under 21 won on the international side.  Players must be 21 to gamble in Nevada. The WSOP could alter the date and location for the heads-up final if needed.

GGPoker, WSOP ramp up satellite and promotional power

Players with lighter bankrolls aren’t going to be shut out of the WSOP Main Event at GG and WSOP.com. Both sites promise plenty of satellites starting at just $1 as well as weekly freerolls awarding $10,000 seats.

The new series adds to an already packed lineup of recent events for GG. The Battle of Malta has shifted online and runs through Nov. 22 with $30 million guaranteed.

The High Rollers Week series is also underway with $22 million guaranteed and runs through Nov. 15. The WSOP Main Event certainly becomes another nice online poker option for GG players.

WSOP Roundup: Mini Main Swells Prize Pool, Americans Score Gold, Negreanu Frustrated, & More

The action continues at the WSCP Online via GGPoker.

Less than a month of bracelet hunting remains for players in the World Series of Poker Online at GGPoker. However, plenty of action lies ahead and the last week saw some big names make waves in the series.

One of those is David Peters, who added a bracelet to his illustrious career. Chris Moorman also came close to poker’s biggest prize and Daniel Negreanu has experienced some frustration.

WSOP Online numbers stay strong with increasing prize pools and winner payouts

With 34 events at GGPoker now in the books, the numbers in the series continued to shine. In the last week, the average winner payout increased by more than $135,000.

The average prize pool rose by almost $14,000. The $500 Mini Main Event was a massive part of those increases. That tournament alone had 15,205 entries and a prize pool of $7.2 million. Croatia’s Ivan Zufic took the title for $843,460.

The WSOP and GGPoker have announced a new summer online bracelet series.

The Mini Main was one of the tournaments offering players a guarantee – $5 million. That total was destroyed and the event became the second-largest prize pool and winner of the series after the Millionaire Maker ($9 million and $1.5 million).

The $5,000 NLHE Six-Handed Championship also drew well with a $3.2 million prize pool. Israel scored its first bracelet winner of the series with Ravid Garbi winning $531,513.

Here’s a look at complete numbers, averages so far.

Tournament averages

  • Entries – 3,641
  • Prize pool – $2.1 million
  • Winner payout – $313,654

Series totals

  • Entries – 123,784
  • Prize pool – $72. 6 million
  • Winner payout – $10.7 million

‘Unknown’ players shine – and shine up new WSOP bracelets

A few “unknown” names came to the forefront over the last week. Ivan Zufic, winner of the Mini Main Event, leads the pack after winning the event for $843,460.

The Croatian had only one $571 score on his Hendon Mob profile before cashing in. Russia’s Anatoly Suvarov’s win in the $ 150 GGMasters WSOP Edition topped his entire live tournament earnings of $178,947.

Ravid Garbi now has eight cashes in the series but only $29,000 in live tournament winnings. He capped his series off by winning the $5,000 NLHE Championship for $531,513.

Alexander “MightyWarrior” Stacey, of the United Kingdom, also hit the poker scene in a big way last week. Despite only $1,100 in live tournament winnings, he showed some chops at the virtual tables.

Stacey won the $300 Monster Stack NLHE 6-Handed for $127,660. In this case, the warrior slayed the monster. 

Dmytro Bystrovzorov had just a single $555 live tournament cash before winning the $600 NLHE Deepstack for $227,906. His ironic GGPoker username is “Too Bad.” Insert your own joke here.

A few bigger names running deep

While several unknowns made some waves in the WSOP Online, a few heavyweights also checked in with nice scores. Chris Moorman battled for his first bracelet last week in the $5,000 NLHE Championship.

The English poker pro and Team 888poker ambassador came up just short, finishing runner-up for $398,393. He now has five cashes in the series and despite not winning the bracelet, Moorman was pleased.

In July he also had a fourth-place finish in a $500 PLO event at WSOP.com for $28,601. Moorman now has 15 cashes in the WSOP Online at both sites.

In the $10,000 Heads Up Championship, David Peters added the second bracelet of his career. No stranger to success on the felt, he’s now seventh on the all-time money list.

The win brought $360,480 and adds to a stellar career that includes $34 million in live tournament winnings.

Daniel Negreanu has also been finding plenty of deep runs. The GGPoker ambassador has been quite a grinder, totaling 15 cashes on WSOP.com and 12 on GG.

Despite that, it’s been frustrating for the Canadian six-time bracelet winner. His best finish came in the $10,000 Heads Up Championship, where he took 13th for $24,832.

“Constantly getting there,” he noted on Twitter. “Constantly on the outside looking in at the final table.”

That’s included several rough beats and this hand from Tuesday provides a good example.

Canadian tops series leaderboard

Daniel Dvoress remains in the top spot on the bracelet series leaderboard after winning the Millionaire Maker for $1.5 million. The Canadian remains just ahead of his fellow countryman Alek Stasiak.

Mini Main Event winner Ivan Zufic now vaults into the third-place spot.  Here’s a look at the complete leaderboard:

  • 1st – Daniel Dvoress (Canada), 6,185.90
  • 2nd – Alek Stasiak (Canada), 6,063.43
  • 3rd – Ivan Zufic (Croatia), 5,719.69
  • 4th – Ranno Sootla (Estonia), 5,021.13
  • 5th – Belarmino De Souza (Brazil), 4,912.17

US overtakes Canada in bracelet totals

In the race to see which country can collect the most hardware, the United States moved ahead with five bracelets. That comes after wins by Americans David Peters and Bradley Ruben. The latter won the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event for $220,160.

The Americans find the top spot despite not legally being able to play the series within their own borders.

Brazil also tied the Canadians with four bracelets after Leonardo Mattos took down the $2,500 Double Stack for $399,047. The United Kingdom sits behind those with three bracelets.

Looking at the week ahead

Some major action is planned for the week ahead. On Thursday and Saturday, players will find a pair of $500 bargain buy-ins. The deep stack is in the Asian time zone, but both should attract nice numbers.

Sunday, Aug. 23, brings big events as well. Look for big names in the $25,000 Poker Players Championship – with a $10 million guarantee.

The final day of the Big 50 also plays out on Sunday. That event comes with a $1 million guarantee for just $50. Here’s a look at the complete schedule remaining in the series.

WORLDWIDE SERIES OF POKER: GGPoker Releases WSOP Online Schedule With $25M Main Event

After the World Series of Poker announced a total of 85 online bracelet events in June, players got an idea of what to expect internationally from GGPoker. On Friday, the fast-growing operator released details of the schedule’s 54 bracelet events.

The series runs July 19 through Sept. 6 and is highlighted by the $5,000 Main Event. That boasts a record-breaking $25 million guarantee the biggest online poker tournament in history.

Players will find multiple Day 1 starting flights beginning on Aug. 16. Day 2 of the Main Event kicks off on Aug. 30.

“We knew GGPoker would go big on the WSOP Online Series, but this is ridiculous,” WSOP executive director Ty Stewart said in a news release. “The single biggest guarantee in the history of online poker is exactly what this once-in-a-lifetime event deserves.”

A look at the GG Poker WSOP Online schedule

The WSOP Online begins July 1 at WSOP.com, with 31 bracelets awarded each day throughout the month. Those events will be available for players in Nevada and New Jersey.

Series organizers hoped to offer an online bracelet schedule after the traditional summer WSOP was postponed to the fall. On July 19, GGPoker is added to the mix for international players.

The series is the first time players outside the US can win a bracelet online. Many players, including well-known players like Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth, have plans to play events on both sites.

Beyond the Main Event, GG players can expect a robust schedule. Buy-ins range from $50 to $25,000. The Big 50 will award a bracelet in an event featuring a buy-in of only fifty bucks.

Players will also find popular events like the Colossus, Millionaire Maker, and Poker Players Championship. Some highlights include:

  • WSOP Event #1: $100 The Opener – July 19 (Day 2), $2 million guarantee
  • WSOP Event #2: $1,111 Every 1 for COVID Relief  – July 19 ($111 from each entry goes to the Caesars Cares fund)
  • WSOP Event #10: $400 COLOSSUS – July 26 (Day 2), $3 million guarantee
  • WSOP Event #17: $1,500 MILLIONAIRE MAKER – Aug. 2 (Day 2), $1 million first prize guarantee
  • WSOP Event #25: $10,000 Heads Up NLHE Championship – Aug. 9 (limited to 128 players)
  • WSOP Event #31: $500 Mini Main Event – Aug. 16 (Day 2), $5 million guarantee 
  • WSOP Event #38: $25,000 NLHE Poker Players Championship –  Aug. 23, $10 million guarantee
  • WSOP Event #39: $50 BIG 50 – Aug. 23 (Day 2), $1 million guarantee
  • WSOP Event #52: $10,000 WSOP Super MILLION$ – September 6 – $5,000,000 prize pool guarantee 

Few guarantees, but plenty of big events

GGPoker players have become accustomed to massive guarantees. While the Main Event features a huge payout, only 12 events feature a guarantee.

“We wanted to keep to the format of the live WSOP as much as possible, where the glory of winning the WSOP bracelet was the real highlight,” GG spokesman Paul Burke told PokerScout. “They don’t put guarantees on the events, so barring some of the real standout events, neither are we.”

Players with lower bankrolls and looking to win their way into a bracelet event will have plenty of opportunities. GGPoker will run a series of micro and low-stakes qualifying events leading up to the series.

The site will also hold standard satellite tournaments beginning July 1. 

“This reminds me of poker’s boom years,” said Negreanu, a GGPoker ambassador.  “Anyone who has dreamed of winning a real WSOP bracelet can now do so across the globe. There’s no feeling like winning a WSOP bracelet, and GGPoker is opening that opportunity to the masses.”

Players will find several poker variations including Pot Limit Omaha and Short Deck. Organizers have also added a few other unique elements as well.

The Asia Championship will be held on Aug. 9 for players in that part of the world. There will also be four People’s Choice events from Sept. 1-5.

A $1,050 Beat the Pros Bounty is also planned for Sept. 5. Unlike the recent WSOP Online Circuit Super Series, however, there won’t be non-bracelet side events.

Real names at the table please

Along with the move to offering international WSOP bracelets, GG is adding another interesting element to the series. Players who make a final table will be required to play using their real names.

This is something new to the industry. Players will know who they’re up against and allows for better media coverage as well. It also allows final tables to mimic live WSOP final tables.

Viewers on the site’s Twitch stream, GGPoker.TV, and PokerCentral will be able to follow their favorite players. The real names of all players who earn cash prizes will also be made available.

“The ability to compete for WSOP bracelets – the ultimate prize in poker – from home is so amazing,” GGPoker ambassador Fedor Holz said. “The big events will be full of players from all over the world: Europe, Canada, South America, and everywhere else. The WSOP action will be scorching hot this summer.”

Here’s a look at the complete GGPoker WSOP Online schedule.

RAISING THE STAKES: World Series of Poker Offers Online Bracelets Via GGPoker, WSOP.com

The WSOP and GGPoker have announced a new summer online bracelet series.

Whether in Europe, Asia, or somewhere else around the world, poker players can compete for a World Series of Poker bracelet this summer. The series announced a partnership with GGPoker on Monday, offering 85 bracelet events internationally and on WSOP.com in the US.

The “WSOP Online” includes WSOP.com offering 31 events July 1-31 with GG events getting started on July 19. This becomes the first time players outside the US will be able to play for a bracelet online.

The annual live series in Las Vegas has been postponed until the fall because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Organizers hope the WSOP Online helps bridge a gap as players await the return of live tournament poker.

“It wouldn’t be summer without WSOP” series executive director Ty Stewart said in a news release.

“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.”

What to expect from GGPoker WSOP events

The Coronavirus pandemic has led to a mini-boom in online poker with massive prize pools around the world. That included the recent GGPoker WSOP Super Online Circuit Series.

That series was the first partnership between the two entities. The series awarded 18 championship rings and featured more than 500 events. Those offered buy-ins for every bankroll and numerous game variations.

The Super Series originally promised a massive guarantee of $102 million, but paid out almost $135 million. The series featured 485,851 entries including a Main Event of almost 10,000 entries with $1.2 million to the winner.

“With over $100 million in guarantees during the WSOPC Super Series in May and more than $134 million in awarded prizes, it’s clear that GGPoker and the WSOP make a good pair,” GG head of poker operations Steve Preiss said.

“We’re excited to create bracelet events that the worldwide poker community will embrace, as well as innovative programming with PokerGo.”

WSOP and GGPoker promise a similar schedule with numerous events, game types, and buy-ins. The GG events for international players kick off on July 19 and run through Sept. 6.

GGPoker plans to unveil its bracelet schedule on a rolling basis, WSOP officials said. GG hasn’t announced any events yet.

Players can expect numerous qualifiers and starting flights as seen in the Super Series. The WSOP Online should be another massive event for the site.

“There’s nothing in the world like winning a WSOP bracelet,” GGPoker ambassador Daniel Negreanu said. “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 also hosting online bracelet tournaments in the US

Players in the US have a lot to look forward to as part of the deal as well. WSOP.com will offer 31 events, one each day from July1-31.

In the US, WSOP.com is available in Nevada and New Jersey. The site is promising several special promotions with satellites starting as low as $1.

WSOP.com will also throw in an extra $100,000 for the series leaderboard awards. GGPoker may offer a similar leaderboard, but that hasn’t been announced yet.

Like the summer WSOP, the series plans on keeping events in the news. Poker Central, the series’ official production partner, plans to create original content around the festival utilizing its Las Vegas studio. That includes:

  • live streams
  • highlight packages
  • program episodes earmarked for traditional television distribution.

Poker Central also plans to stream virtual bracelet ceremonies and interviews with bracelet winners. There should be plenty of action and PokerScout will continue to track the series as well. Here’s a look at the complete WSOP.com schedule:

GGPoker WSOP Super Circuit Series Smashes Guarantee with $134 Million Awarded

The GGPoker WSOP Super Series smashed the $102 million guarantee.

The first international World Series of Poker online series proved to be a major success. After 500 events, including 18 championship ring tournaments, players in the WSOP Super Circuit Series took home $134.7 million.

That vastly exceeded the original $102 million guarantee. The series was held in partnership with GGPoker and wrapped up on March 31.

GG officials said the festival exceeded expectations and that certainly showed in the series’ prize and players pools.

GGPoker WSOP Super Series produces massive numbers

After the partnership announcement in April, the series became something new for both operators. The WSOP.com Super Series has proven popular with players in New Jersey and Nevada.

The GGPoker deal allowed the WSOP to offer the online series to an international audience. As one of the fastest-growing poker sites in the world, GG ramped up the action with massive events and player pools.

GG hosting the series ensured players throughout the globe could play in WSOPC ring events, satellites, and other events. This offered their first opportunity to play in a WSOP tournament.

Here’s a look at some statistics from the series:

  • Number of events – 516
  • Total guaranteed prize pool of all events – $102,365,000
  • Total prizes awarded – $134,706,274
  • Single biggest event prize pool – $12,372,500 (WSOPC Ring Event #8: High Roller Championship $10 million guaranteed)
  • Total number of entries – 485,851
  • Largest number of entries in a single event – 29,357 (WSOPC Ring Event #9: Mini Main Event)

The series also included a major charity tournament, which have been popular recently. The first ring event was a fundraiser for COVID-19 relief and raised $177,045.

“The support of the gaming community for the WSOPC on GGPoker was insane,” said Ty Stewart, WSOP executive director. “No guarantees were too big. Congratulations to all 18 ring event winners.”

GGPoker made the Super Series an even bigger spectacle

 With so many players at home during the Coronavirus pandemic, the Super Series proved a win-win for GG and WSOP. 

Much of the headline WSOPC Ring Event action was streamed live on Twitch via GGPoker TV. The channel offers an entertaining, podcast-style show hosted by Joe Stapleton.

The WSOP and GGPoker recently announced a partnership on the new Online Super Series.

GGPoker ambassadors Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Felipe Ramos, and Fedor Holz dropped in on the stream to comment on the action. Maria Ho, David Williams, Matt Berkey, Jesse Sylvia, and Marle Cordeiro also joined the mix.

“Over 500 events, more than 485,000 tournament entries and of course over $134 million in prizes awarded – the GGPoker community fully embraced and supported the WSOP Super Circuit Series,” GG head of business development Jean-Christophe Antoine said.

“It was thrilling to witness all of the action, and to see every single ring event guarantee exceeded was something all players could be happy about.”

The GGPoker action continues in June, with more than $2 million in extra prizes awarded through monthly promotions. The site offers numerous daily tournaments for bankrolls of every level.

Extending the WSOP brand

With so many players at home during the Coronavirus pandemic, numbers have been way up for online poker operators. That goes for WSOP.com in the US, and the GGPoker agreement allows the series to expand its reach internationally.

“GGPoker just seriously raised the bar,” WSOP executive director Ty Stewart said. “We’re tremendously proud to see that GGPoker’s first international WSOPC series will sit among the biggest online events of all time.”

Like traditional WSOP Circuit events, the Super Series offers two seats for the WSOP $1 million freeroll Global Casino Championship. The tournament is an official bracelet event and seats go to the Main Event and player of the series winners.

 

Players can qualify for all events via satellite tournaments for a shot at a ring for a low buy-in. The series offers plenty of action for players around the world.

The WSOP recently announced that the annual summer series in Las Vegas had been postponed to fall. However, series officials noted that online events would be run this summer. That could include even more international events as well with online partners.

A look at the GGPoker/WSOP Super Series

Players around the world will be pleased to see more major action coming online during the Coronavirus pandemic. The WSOP Circuit was forced to cancel several events because of the virus.

Online rounders now have a chance to battle online for a championship gold ring. The full tournament schedule will be announced at a later date.

WSOP officials were pleased with the deal and seeing the series launched on such a growing brand.

“We’re thrilled to partner with an operator on the rise who is both aggressive and passionate about growing poker engagement around the world,” WSOP executive director Ty Stewart said in a news release.

“It was unfortunate that we were forced to cancel so many offline WSOP Circuit events this spring, but with vast reach GGPoker plans to dwarf the prize pools of the suspended events all at once in one truly Super WSOP Circuit.”

What to expect from WSOP, GGPoker events

In March, WSOP.com held its own Online Super Series with a $1.24 million guarantee. That total was smashed, however, with more players at home and looking to play online. The series ended with more than $3.9 million awarded to players.

Numerous big-names also got in on the action. It’s a good bet that may continue with the GG series.

The GGPoker Super Series should easily shatter that US event total with players around the globe able to play. GG players can also qualify for events in satellites throughout the series.

Beyond that, the Super Circuit also offers a chance to qualify for the $1 million guaranteed WSOP Global Casino Championship. Winners of the Main Event and player of the series leaderboard earn free entries into the popular bracelet event.

GGPoker continues growing and making news

As a growing international site with significant reach, the new GG series brings more momentum for the site. GGPoker regularly ranks among the top five in the world in site traffic.

The Super Series also adds to its growing slate of events. The site is currently running the GGSeries through April 26, with a massive $50 million in guaranteed prize pool. 

The series includes an ongoing $300,000 leaderboard and features numerous daily events in four tiers:

  • Low
  • Mid
  • High 
  • High Rollers

GG also continues to offer huge Sunday GGMasters tournament guarantees. The events feature a $150 buy-in, a $300,000 guarantee, and a freezeout format.

In March, the site also restructured its Sunday lineup with 174 tournaments with $2 million in guarantees.

GG ambassador Daniel Negreanu comments on WSOP deal

Some of the biggest news for GGPoker came in November when it added six-time WSOP bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu. As the site’s ambassador, he sees the announcement as a huge opportunity for the brand.

“The WSOP is the most prestigious brand in poker dating back to 1970,” he told PokerScout. “Anytime you can be in a partnership with the WSOP, that’s a great opportunity and I was thrilled to see GGPoker partner with them.

“How does this help the WSOP? Well, I strongly believe that GGPoker offers the best software and player experience you’ll find anywhere online. Especially the mobile client which is in a league of its own.”

The poker star believes that quality software and efforts at keeping fun in the game add to GG’s growing popularity.

“Since signing with GGPoker I’ve had countless industry insiders, Twitch streamers, and casual players rave about the playing experience and the software,” Negreanu says.

“The goal was always to make the game fun and engaging with all the bells and whistles that help accomplish that. Whether it’s squeezing your cards or rabbit hunting, the focus is always on fun.”
