2021 World Series of Poker Online Starts Thursday, July 1

The US-Facing Segment Of The WSOPO Will Award 33 Gold Bracelets From July 1 - Aug. 1


The US-facing segment of the 2021 World Series of Poker Online kicks off today with the first of 33 gold bracelet events being held from July 1- Aug. 1 on, which is accessible for those in Nevada and New Jersey.

“Poker deserves a big finish to 2021 and we’re looking to heat things up this summer,” said Ty Stewart, WSOP Executive Director. “We expect to offer great value tournaments as well as comprehensive satellites to qualify for Las Vegas in the fall."

For those outside the U.S., the international segment of the WSOP Online will take place on GGPoker from Aug. 1 – Sept. 12. The schedule for that part of the series has not yet been released.

The inaugural WSOP Online, which also included ‘domestic’ and ‘international’ schedules, attracted over 283,983 entries. More than $174.5 million in prize money was paid out across 85 bracelet events.

The 2021 WSOPO is but one part of a three-pronged approach to this year’s WSOP, with the traditional live and in-person WSOP set to take place from Sept. 30 – Nov. 23 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, with 88 gold bracelets to be handed out along the way. The WSOP Europe is also set to return in 2021, with 15 bracelet events expected between Nov. 19 through Tuesday, Dec. 8 at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic.

The 2021 WSOP Online domestic schedule was broken down into several themed segments, starting off with ‘Premiere Week’. Highlights from the first seven days include
a pair of number-themed tournaments: the ‘Lucky Sevens’ $777 buy-in no-limit hold’em event running on July 7 and the ‘Crazy Eights’ $888 buy-in no-limit hold’em event the following day.

The second weekend of the schedule is dubbed ‘Micro Madness’, and features the only three tournaments on the schedule with buy-ins below $500. Next up on the agenda is ‘PLO Week’, which sports three of the four non-no-limit hold’em events on the schedule, with a pair of $600 pot-limit Omaha six-max events and a pot-limit Omaha version of the ‘Crazy Eights’ event.

‘Double Bracelet Day’ will take place on July 25, with the $7,777 buy-in high roller event and the 500 ‘Big500 Encore’ bein the only bracelet events scheduled for the same date throughout this 33-event series.

‘Championship Week’ will bring the series to its climax with a number of championship events, highlighted by the $500 buy-in no-limit hold’em ‘Grand Finale’ event, which will feature a $1,000,000 guarantee, the largest in history. That event will be the final tournament of the US-facing segment of the WSOP Online, and is set to kick off on Aug. 1. Check out the image below for a look at the complete schedule.
