WSOP 2023 Online Domestic Series Highlights
This marks the fourth consecutive year in which the WSOP has presented an extensive online bracelet lineup exclusively for US players.
33 bracelet events spanning more than a month will be on offer, with buy-ins ranging from $365 to $5300. The schedule begins on September 10 with a duo of bracelet events — a $400 buy-in Series “Kick-Off” No-Limit Hold’em (NLH) followed by a $2000 buy-in NLH tournament. After a brief hiatus on Monday, the series resumes on Tuesday with a $3200 NLH High Roller 6-Max event.
The schedule boasts standout events like the Crazy 8’s on September 17, a $365 buy-in NLH Monster Stack on September 24 (the most affordable bracelet event), and a $2500 buy-in NLH Freezeout on September 23.
Returning fan-favorite events include the $1000 NLH Online Championship and the $400 COLOSSUS. This year introduces new additions such as the $400 buy-in “PLOSSUS,” played 6-handed, and a $1500 buy-in Bounty NLH, also in a 6-max format.
Of the 33 scheduled events, 15 will feature buy-ins of $1000 or more, encompassing a $3200 High Roller Championship and a $5300 Super High Roller 6-Max Freezeout. Three out of the 33 events will be held in freezeout format, while the remaining events will allow players to re-enter between one to three times.
The average buy-in across the series stands at $1249.
The operator cautions players that they must be physically located within state borders to participate in these online bracelet events.
More Bracelets for US Online Poker Players
This will be the second time WSOP will be hosting online bracelet events for US players. The operator also hosted bracelet events alongside the WSOP 2023 live series, with 20 online bracelets up for grabs for players in NJ & NV, while MI & PA series saw 7 events with 7 bracelets.
The summer series produced stellar numbers, with the NJ/NV segment producing north of $20 million, while the MI & PA series combined generated $1.3 million.
Last year too, the officials ran an online-only bracelet series during this period. They generated $11.7 million in total prize money. The NJ/NV portion contributed $10.6 million across 33 events, averaging $321k per bracelet. The Pennsylvania and Michigan legs awarded $572.2k, and $537.6k prize pools, distributed over six bracelet events each.
The US segment of the 2023 WSOP Online campaign will overlap with the international online bracelet series that will be running on the GGPoker platform, which kicks off this Sunday, August 20 and will run through October 2, featuring 33 gold bracelets. The series is highlighted by a $25 million guaranteed WSOP Online Main Event carrying a $5000 buy-in.
In addition to the international events, through a partnership with the World Series brand, the GGPoker Ontario app will extend its offering to players in Canada’s largest province, where eight online bracelets will be up for grabs.
“We’re the “World” Series of Poker and backed by GGPoker, WSOP Online is where we can deliver a chance for glory to players across the world who might not otherwise travel to live events. Bling is the thing, and we’ll be looking forward to welcoming new members to poker’s most exclusive club,” Stewart added.
