The remaining 2020 World Series of Poker Online schedule was released late last week.
Earlier this year the WSOP released the schedule of tournaments, 31 in total, to be played on WSOP.com starting July. These tournaments will only be open to players located in Nevada and New Jersey. That left another 54 events to be played on GGPoker, which will be open to players around the world.
The official WSOP bracelet events begin on GGPoker on July 19 and run until September 6. The mix of tournaments is quite substantial with buy-ins ranging from $50 to $25,000 and several varieties of poker represented including No Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha, Short Deck Hold’em, bounty tournaments, Deepstack tournaments and freezeouts.
The first tournament on the schedule on July 19 is The Opener with a $100 buy-in and a $2 million guaranteed prize pool. Some of the other standout tournaments on the schedule include the following.
On July 26 there are two tournaments with seven-figure guarantees. First up is the Colossus, a $400 No-Limit Hold’em tournament with a $3 million guarantees. There also the Plossus, so named because it’s a Pot-Limit Omaha tournament. It has a $400 buy-in and a $1 million guarantee.
For short deck hold’em players the dates to circle on your calendar are July 28 and August 2. On July 28 the first Short Deck tournament on the schedule is the $10,000 Short Deck Championship. If that’s out of your price range there’s a $1,000 Short Deck tournament on August 2.
On August 2 someone will begin their road to a million dollars in the Millionaire Maker. The online version of this WSOP staple has a $1,500 buy-in and the winner receives a $1 million.
Some of the cheaper buy-ins on the schedule include the $155 GGMasters Freezeout on August 9, the BIG 50 with a $50 buy-in which concludes on August 23 and, the $100 WSOP MILLION with a $2 million guarantee which concludes on September 6.
The main event is expected to be a record-breaker with a $25 million guarantee, the largest-ever guarantee for an online event. The main event has a $5,000 buy-in and multiple starting flights throughout the schedule. The three-day freezeout tournament is scheduled to finish up on September 5.
