WSOP 2020 to be held online
The most popular and much-awaited poker championship – World Series of Poker – traditionally starts in Las Vegas in June, but not this year, as it has been rescheduled owing to the coronavirus outbreak. At first, rumors circulated that the WSOP 2020 would be rescheduled to autumn, but yesterday, it became clear that the World Series of Poker would be carried out online.
WSOP Online will become one of the greatest series of online tournaments on record. The festival will run for two months, and all interested players will be given an opportunity to win a coveted trophy on two different gaming platforms, such as WSOP.com and GGNetwork. Besides, the prize pool of the series is promised to be huge.
There will be 85 bracelet events played as part of the series: 31 events will take place on WSOP.com, and the other 52 tournaments are to be carried out in the poker rooms that belong to the GGNetwork (GGPoker, GGpokerok). It means that 31 gold bracelets will be raffled among American players, as online poker is on a reservation in the US. Thus, to play at WSOP.com people are required to remain within the boundaries of the following states: Delaware, New Jersey and Nevada.

The American part of the WSOP launches on July 1, and, taking into account the schedule introduced at WSOP.com, the competitions will be significantly cheaper than those, which took place in Las Vegas. Buy-ins of the WSOP 2020 at WSOP.com vary from $400 to $3 200, and the satellites will start from $1, that is, you can win the bracelet just for one dollar.
