The online events feature a variety of formats and price points, with buy-ins ranging from as low as $400 to as high as $3,200.

“Just like the land-based WSOP, the annual summer series is also the best time for online poker players in the U.S. to chase big prize pools and WSOP gold bracelets,” said Bill Rini, WSOP.com’s head of online poker. “WSOP.com is offering a consistent gold bracelet schedule this year, plus non-stop satellites to both the online and live events, giving players the best opportunity to participate in the 50th Annual WSOP.
