WSOP Circuit goes online in 2021
The organizers of the World Series of Poker decided not to wait for the end of the coronavirus epidemic and announced the WSOP Circuit schedule for the entire 2021. We can note that in this schedule, every single tournament will be held online in the poker room Wsop.com.
The series was divided into several stages online, which will take place throughout the year at poker room Wsop.com. Last year, moving events in online became commonplace, and hundreds of thousands of poker players around the world rushed to win victories in online battles.
WSOP CEO Ty Stewart sees the situation as follows:
"Players deserve great tournaments, and that’s what we aim to do with the 2021 WSOP Online Circuit Series. We’ve been thrilled with the big prize pools for WSOP.COM events in 2020, and we only expect to see that grow with this new model".
The schedule of the series has appeared on the official WSOP website. Each month, players will experience a different stage named after the Las Vegas casino. In each of the Main Events there will be a raffle of gold rings and a total of 180 rings will be drawn for the whole year.
