The news for WSOP.com online poker players in Pennsylvania just seems to get better. The site officially launched on Monday and a new World Series of Poker bracelet series was announced on Thursday for the state.
Pennsylvania online poker players can expect eight bracelet events running from Aug. 8-15 with buy-ins ranging from $400 to $3,200.
Details on the WSOP PA bracelet series
The announcement is timed well with the current WSOP Online running in New Jersey and Nevada. Players in the US now have even more opportunities at an online bracelet.
“I personally would be really excited for it,” says Matt LoPresti of the opportunity to win a bracelet in PA. He lives in the city of Lititz and plays online poker recreationally. “Since PA is running solo, it’s a great opportunity to navigate smaller fields for a bracelet.”
Players in PA have offered mostly positive reviews of the new 888poker “Poker 8” software client in the state. 888 is the WSOP’s software partner in the US.
“The software is really smooth and the graphics are sweet too,” says LoPresti, who already won a $1,000 guaranteed tournament this week.
PA players soon have an opportunity to win some WSOP hardware. Players will find all events featuring No Limit Hold’em with the $500 Keystone Kickoff kicking off the action Aug. 8.
Players can also expect a $3,200 High Roller on Aug. 10. The $1,000 PA Championship wraps up the series on Aug. 15. Here’s a look at the complete schedule:
