The full schedule for the 2020 World Series of Poker Online Series has finally been released. When the decision to host 85 gold bracelet events online to help fill the void left by the postponement of the 2020 WSOP in Las Vegas, schedule information was only available for the 31 events being held on WSOP.com in Nevada and New Jersey.

The remaining 54 events will be held on international-facing online site GGPoker from July 19 through September 6. The centerpiece of the whole affair will be the$5,000 buy-in WSOP no-limit hold’em main event, which will feature a record-breaking $25,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. The largest prize pool in online poker tournament history thus far was for the 2018 partypoker MILLIONS, which paid out $21,780,000. That high-water mark is set to be surpassed when this event kicks off on August 16 with the first of several starting flights, according to the release.

“The single biggest guarantee in the history of online poker is exactly what this once-in-a-lifetime event deserves,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart in the press release detailing the schedule.

Players that make WSOP Online final tables will be required to play under their real names for the sake of poker fans following along with the action, which will be live-streamed. The real names of players that finish in the money will also be reported.

Some of the notable events announced included a $100 buy-in no-limit hold’em kickoff event called ‘The Opener’ that features a $2,000,000 guarantee, a $1,111 buy-in charity event title ‘Every 1 for Covid Relief’ that will award $111 from each entry to the Caesars Cares fund, the $400 buy-in ‘Colossus’ event with a $3,000,000 guarantee, and the $1,500 buy-in ‘Millionaire Maker’, which has a guaranteed $1,000,000 first-place prize. Another staple of the live WSOP that made the schedule was the $10,000 buy-in heads-up no-limit hold’em championship.

The largest guarantees outside of the main event belong to the $25,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em Poker Players Championship ($10 million guaranteed), the $500 buy-in mini main event ($5,000,000 guaranteed) and the aforementioned ‘Millionaire Maker’ ($5,000,000 guaranteed).

One of the surprising additions to the schedule were the four ’People’s Choice Bracelet Events’, events 47-50. The official schedule released doesn’t include much information about these events, their buy-in levels, or how participants will be chosen, but does indicate that this info is to be announced.
