GGPoker has finally released the full schedule of the international leg of the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Bracelet Series. The festival runs from August 1 to September 12, featuring 33 gold bracelets. The domestic portion of the festival is currently underway on WSOP.com, with 33 bracelets also up for grabs.
Let’s take a look at the highlights of the 2021 WSOP Online series on GGPoker.
The action gets underway with The Return No-Limit Hold’em event, which comes with a huge guarantee of $1 million. It is the lowest buy-in tournament on the schedule and offers massive value to players. The event features multiple Day 1s which will kick off on July 26. The finale takes place on August 1.
Another not-to-be-missed event during the opening week is the $1,500 buy-in MILLIONAIRE MAKER NLH. The popular tournament returns this year with a whopping $5 million guarantee. It’s a multi-flight event which runs from August 2-8.
Also taking place on the opening week of the festival is the $200 buy-in FLIP & GO No-Limit Hold’em event which offers $1 million in guaranteed prize pool. The event also features multiple starting flights which get underway on August 8.
The schedule includes other key events such as the $10,000 buy-in Heads Up NLH Championship on August 21; $1,050 buy-in, $2M GTD GGMasters HR Freezeout NLH on August 22; and the popular COLOSSUS event (August 23) which also returns this year with a buy-in of $400 and $3 million in guaranteed prize money.
Apart from that, there’s also a $25,000 Super High Roller Championship which sports a massive guarantee of $5 million. It gets underway on August 29.
2021 WSOP Online Main Event
The most highly-anticipated event on the schedule is the Main Event which kicks off on August 29. The tournament maintains its $5,000 buy-in, but now comes with a reduced guarantee of $20 million, down from last year’s $25 million.
Nevertheless, the event is still expected to be huge, and while it’s difficult to tell if it can match the record-breaking inaugural tournament in 2020, this year’s edition is still poised to leave a mark as one of the biggest tournaments in online poker history.
Last year, Bulgaria’s Stoyan Madanzhiev became the first-ever WSOP Online Main Event champion, taking home $3,904,685 in top prize after outclassing a field of 5,802 entries.
Whoever wins the 2021 Main Event will receive additional prizes and will become a member of GGPoker’s exclusive Team Champions. Check out the GGPoker website for the full schedule of the 2021 WSOP Online international edition.
