Players in the bracelet mix

With so much gold on the line, there are numerous players heading to Nevada and New Jersey to get in the action. WSOP regulars Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth have already planned to play the entire series at WSOP.com and GGPoker.

Two-time WPT champion Brian Altman plans on playing after winning a Super Online Circuit Series event in March. He has two WSOP Circuit rings and is still looking for his first bracelet.

“I’m not sure of my exact schedule, but I plan on playing some of the events,” Altman says. “I think it’s great the WSOP is adapting to these unique times and running online events across two different sites.”

Three-time bracelet winner Ben Yu plans on playing as does 2019 WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic champion Dylan Linde. Shaun Deeb and Olivier Busquet spoke with the Las Vegas Review-Journal last week about the series. Both appear to be playing.

“Would I like to win a World Series of Poker bracelet?,” Busquet told the newspaper. “Of course. Yeah, sure. I’m not going to turn it down. It would be great. Would I view it any differently from a normal (live) bracelet? No, I don’t think so. It’s not easy to win these tournaments, no matter what the format is.”

 

There should be plenty of other well-known pros ready to get in the action. That includes GGPoker ambassadors Fedor Holz, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Felipe Ramos, and Brynn Kenney.

Four-time World Poker Tour champion Darren Elias will also be looking for his first bracelet.

“I plan on playing most of the bigger no limit events,” he says. “I’m really looking forward to some of the big guaranteed events on GG as well.”

Mum’s the word – no chatting allowed

Many players have wondered about the decision to curtail the WSOP.com chat box feature at tables. Some players have expressed frustration at not being able to talk at the tables during the WSOP Online.

 

Series officials tell USPoker that the decision was actually made before the WSOP Online. WSOP.com apparently decided it wasn’t necessary.

“The disabling of the chat box was a WSOP.com decision made independently of WSOP Online but in effect prior to the series,” WSOP executive director Ty Stewart says. “We feel it is a dated concept not beneficial to the customer experience.”
