The bracelet bonanza never seems to end at WSOP.com and more is now in store for online poker players. The site announced another round of tournaments to coincide with the upcoming live World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
The series returns to the Rio on Sept. 30 after much of the 2020 festival was held online. On Friday, WSOP officials announced additional online gold bracelet events throughout the series from Oct. 3 to Nov. 21.
The pandemic showed the importance online poker plays in the industry. WSOP.com and GGPoker recently wrapped up the WSOP Online with 66 bracelets awarded between the two sites. The online bracelet action now continues throughout the series in US regulated markets.
“Online Poker is an important form of tournament poker in 2021,” WSOP/Caesars Entertainment Senior Vice President Ty Stewart said in a news release.
“Our philosophy has always been to provide players the most options of any poker festival in the world. WSOP.com online bracelets have a strong track record of significant prize pools, making them a great option for players who want to multi-table while in a live tournament, or play from the convenience of their home or hotel.”
