The 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) has been rather successful as we are now mid-ways through the live poker tournament. While the live poker tournament is taking place at the Rio, the WSOP is also running online bracelet events every weekend.
The WSOP initially did not have any online bracelet events on its schedule but suddenly decided to add 11 WSOP online bracelets just before the WSOP started. Given the fact that the WSOP suddenly decided to make it mandatory for players to be fully vaccinated, these online bracelet events give players who don’t want to be vaccinated a chance to still take part in the 2021 WSOP and have a crack at winning a WSOP bracelet.
Four Bracelets – $2.1 Million Raised
The WSOP is giving away these online bracelets to poker players in New Jersey, Nevada and Pennsylvania. Most of these WSOP online bracelet events are for players in NJ and NV. The WSOP has scheduled an online bracelet event during every weekend of the live poker tournament, with two weekends hosting two WSOP bracelet events.
One of those double bracelet weekends has already come to an end and as of now four WSOP online events have taken place. They have received quite a strong response from online poker players in NJ and NV brought in a total of 3,102 registrations and $2,166,270 in combined prize money. Stats show that 2,216 of these registrations were unique registrations while 886 registrations came via reentries.
The average guaranteed prize pool for each of these four WSOP online bracelet events came up to $541,568 with the winner of each even taking home an average of $119,464. Based on the four events, the event with the biggest buy-in ($5,300) which was the NL Hold’em Freezeout received the lowest response of 156 entries while the event with the lowest buy-in ($400) received the strongest response with 1,357 registrations that resulted in a total prize pool of $488,520.
Six Bracelets Left
There are six more WSOP online bracelet events waiting to be won at the 2021 WSOP and five of those bracelet events will once again cater to poker players in NJ and NV. The last bracelet event will focus on the Pennsylvania online poker market.
The next WSOP online bracelet event takes place on Oct 31 and is the 2x Re-entry which has a $666 buy-in. This is followed by the NL Hold’em High Roller 8-Max, which is event number 7 and takes place on Nov 7. The buy-in for this event is set at $3,200.
On Nov 14, you have a high stakes event that will attract the biggest high stakes players in NV and NJ. Event number 8 is the Lucky 7’s No Limit Hold’em High Roller event which comes with a $7777 buy-in and is followed on the same day by Event number 9.
Event number 9 is the Lucky 7’s No Limit Hold’em which has a $777 buy-in and is there for low stakes players. The final WSOP online event for NJ and NV players will take place on Nov 21 and is Event number 10 which is the Mini Main Event that has a $1,000 buy-in. The WSOP will also host a Mini Main Event on Nov 21 for players in Pennsylvania and will also carry a $1,000 buy-in.
The WSOP is expecting to close out its live poker tournament with a strong showing in the 2021 WSOP Main Event as there is a good chance international players will be able to take part as the WSOP has created additional flights for the Main Event.
