WSOP announced massive news on Monday that a total of 85 bracelets will be given out online this summer. This was in response to the global pandemic outbreak that caused the postponement of the live series that was due to take place from May 26.
The WSOP online bracelet events will be held across two platforms including the GGPoker network, making it the first time that players outside the US will be able to compete for WSOP gold bracelet events.
A total of 54 bracelet events will be held on the GGPoker network starting July 19, with at least one running every day until September 6.
The remaining 31 bracelet events will be awarded every day in July on the WSOP.com platform for players located within New Jersey and Nevada. Pennsylvania online poker players, along with those in Delaware will not be able to participate in this historic event.
“It wouldn’t be Summer without WSOP,” said Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the World Series of Poker. “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.”
