GGPoker is gearing up to host the WSOP Online Series starting July 19, and the operator just recently released the poker schedule. In total, GGPoker will offer up 54 events with each providing a gold bracelet to the winner. Players can compete in WSOP bracelet events via the platform for quite some time, as the series will run through September 6.
Major Events on the Schedule:
The WSOP Online Series via GGPoker is going to be massive. The most anticipated event will be the Main Event, which will have a buy-in of $5,000. The event will offer up a record-breaking $25 million in prize money, guaranteed. This will be the largest online poker tournament to ever take place when considering the total amount of money up for grabs.
The tournament will have several day 1s, so players will have plenty of time to compete. Day 1s will begin on August 16 and day 2 will begin on August 30.
Ty Stewart, the WSOP Executive Director, commented on the upcoming series by stating: “We knew GGPoker would be BIG on the WSOP Online Series, but this is ridiculous. The single biggest guarantee in the history of online poker is exactly what this once-in-a-lifetime event deserves.”
Additional Large Guaranteed Events:
While the schedule is large, there are plenty of events offering large guaranteed prize pools. Event #31 is the $500 Mini Main Event, offering a smaller version of the regular main event. This tournament will have a prize pool of $5 million. Event #52 will also offer $5 million in prize money. This is the $10,000 WSOP Super MILLION$.
For even more prize money, players need to watch out for Event #38. This is the $25,000 NLH Poker Players Championship. This event takes place on August 23 and will offer up a whopping $10 million in guaranteed prize money.
Players will find the operator will offer micro and low stake qualifying events that will lead up to the WSOP Online Series. This will allow players of every bankroll to compete.
Both brands will continue to work together to offer quality online poker gaming to players around the world. The two offered an online poker series back in May, with 18 headlining events. The series ran for three weeks and saw a solid turnout of players. This time around, the WSOP Online will be much larger, offering even more great events and massive prize pools.
