WSOP.com Fall Online Championships Feature Big Guarantees, Kickoff Set For Oct. 6
Poker fans in New Jersey and Nevada will want to be all in this October. WSOP.com kicks off the site’s Fall Online Championships on Oct. 6.
The annual series features 37 events and runs through Oct. 20. With more than $1 million in total guaranteed prize pools, the series offers plenty of bang for the buck.
The $525 Main Event, set for Oct. 20, features a $175,000 guarantee and a championship belt to the winner.
WSOP.com is the only available online poker site in Nevada. It also leads New Jersey poker sites with shared liquidity available between the two states. That tends to lead to better prize pools and guarantees.
