The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is usually sitting right around the corner this time of year. It has been released that the live poker expected at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas has been changed to a World Series of Poker Online with 85 events listed across WSOP.com and GGPoker.

While WSOP has been hosting online events since 2015, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the entire series to online platforms in 2020.

July is the Start of Bracelet Events

The WSOP has created a new online-only series of tournaments starting on July 1 for players in both Nevada and New Jersey. Players in Delaware that use the sister site 888 Poker are not included in the contests.

The press release stated:

“Consistent with GGPoker’s terms of service, play on the platform is prohibited from the United States. Any player discovered to be attempting to play from inside the US border will be deemed ineligible and prize money subject to forfeiture.”

The 2020 WSOP Online features one bracelet event each day during July on WSOP.com, plus 54 events on GGPoker that run all the way through September 6.

Poker Styles for WSOP.com Events

As of now, only the US portion of the 2020 WSOP Online schedule is available. The WSOP stated, “GGPoker plans to unveil its bracelet schedule on a rolling basis.”

WSOP Online events on the US will all be either no-limit hold’em or a variant of Omaha. The majority of events will be NLH (No-Limit Hold’em). Buy-ins will range from $400 to $3,200.

According to the WSOP, the international series of events on GGPoker will have “a broad range of buy-ins and game formats.” It is expected there will be variants other than hold-em and Omaha as found on the GGPoker Network.

At the end of last month, WSOP announced it was moving the invite-only Global Casino Championship (GCC) online. It was originally scheduled for the GCC to take place at Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina.

The WSOP Season Finale Online Circuit series is also currently featuring 12 WSOPC ring events running through June 14.

Although the online additions have been established and scheduled, the 2020 WSOP remains postponed until further notice.
