THE DAILY SCOOP – The WSOP Online – Launch Weekend
WSOP Online Series 2022 – The Launch
The 3rd annual World Series of Poker Online (WSOP-O) is being hosted at GGPoker; the world’s most prestigious poker tournament at the world’s biggest poker room.
Scheduled to run from August 14th until September 27th, the WSOP Online Bracelet Series is hosting a total of 33 bracelet events with each of the 33 winners earning a coveted WSOP Championship Bracelet.
The 33 bracelet series consists of a variety of poker games with buy-ins ranging from as low as $100 for the FLIP & GO No Limit event #18 and up to $10,000 for the Heads Up NLH Championship Event #10 and the Super MILLION$ High Roller Event #12, which has a $5,000,000 guarantee.
The first WSOP bracelet available to be won as part of this poker tournament series is Event #2: Every 1 for War Relief on Sunday, August 14th. This World Series of Poker tournament will be donating $111 from the $1,111 buy in to the National Bank of Ukraine towards the war relief effort, to aid the victims from the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
The second weekend of the World Series of Poker Online is capped with a groundbreaking event. Event #7: Million Dollar Mystery Bounty is offering a $10,000,000 guarantee for a low buy-in of $210. However, what makes this event so unique, in addition to it being the only mystery bounty event of the poker tournament series, is the guaranteed $1,000,000 top bounty prize. One lucky player is going to walk away with a one million dollar bounty at random. This poker tournament will set the record for both the biggest guarantee in an online mystery bounty tournament and the single largest online bounty in the history of poker.
The World Series of Poker Online ends for the 3rd year with the running of Event #33: The WSOP Online Main Event. This $5,000 buy-in poker tournament is the same event that, in 2020, set the Guinness world record for largest prize pool for an online poker tournament. This centerpiece event of the World Series of Poker Online is guaranteeing a prize pool of $20,000,000 to go along with the WSOP Gold bracelet.
With 33 main events, daily side tournaments and a constant stream of direct entry satellites and step satellites, starting from just $1, there is no reason this cannot be your year to enter the annals of history, joining the legendary names, as a World Series of Poker Gold Bracelet champion.
