The impending release date of the shared liquidity on WSOP.com between Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey resulted in excitement across the markets. May is finally here and WSOP.com coronated the launch with a major online tournament series.

The shared liquidity agreement was announced on October 13 and anticipation has been high since then.

The shared player pools allow for larger prize pools, increased offering in live games and tournaments, and potential for legislation in other states.

Pennsylvania is expected to be the next state in the pecking order to join in the shared liquidity. The state signed online gaming into regulation in the fall of 2017 and is awaiting a formal date to commence the button clicking.

“It’s a monumental day for online poker in the United States,” WSOP.com Head of Online Poker Bill Rini said. “This is truly a game-changer for players and we hope is the model blueprint for additional states to join the fray.”

Starting the party with a bang

The Coast to Coast Classic opens on May 11 and boasts a staggering $1 million in prize pool guarantees across 32 events.

All three states are eligible to participate in the series with over a week of events scheduled. The guarantees in the Coast to Coast Classic range from $10,000 all the way up to the $200,001 Main Event on Sunday, May 20.

The $200,001 guarantee on the $500 buy-in is the largest prize pool ever offered in the history of regulated online poker in the United States.

Three tournaments take place each day of the series with the exception of the two Sundays on the schedule. Both May 13 and May 20 feature four MTTs.

Every tournament starts at the top of the hour between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. Eastern Time.

Any player who registers for at least one Coast to Coast Classic event earns a ticket to a satellite for the $365 WSOP bracelet event with 20 seats guaranteed.

Other notable events on the Coast to Coast Classic schedule include the $320 $100,000 guaranteed Sunday Special on May 13; $30 $25,000 guaranteed Little Monday on May 14; and the $1,000 $85,000 guaranteed Six Max High Roller.

Every event on the schedule is No Limit Hold’em with the exception of the $50 $10,000 guaranteed Pot Limit Omaha on Saturday, May 19.
