WSOP Online 2020 – US & International

The 2020 Poker Gold bracelet event for the first official World Series of U.S. and international poker tournaments began online on July 1, which was officially postponed to April 20 due to the coronavirus. But, in early June, the World Series of Poker Online announced that the 85 gold-bracelet event series scheduled between two separate online poker sites would be held from July 1 to September.

WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart announced, “We are committed to running WSOP this year, but we need extra time to move forward on our traditional thematic scale while prioritizing guests and staff’s well-being.” He added, “In the interim, WSOP competitions are expected to be played online this summer, which will allow players to achieve WSOP glory outside the home.”

World Series of Poker 2020 online

Recognizing the reality, the World Series organizers last week increased the options for poker players, announcing “Poker Online World Series 2020” 85 poker tournaments that will give everyone a gold bracelet.

Similarly, players based in Nevada or New Jersey will be able to enter 31 U.S. tournaments at WSO.com, and international players from countries approved to operate the GGPoker network will have access to 54 more events.

However, of the record 187,298 entries drawn in the 2019 edition, 8,569 landed in Rio for the main event. Consequently, it’s a tournament that fills hundreds of poker tables together and creates shoulder-to-shoulder traffic on the hallway.

During, 2020 major event proposal the announcement of WSOP’s online series states that in line with MMA’s initial success and the removal of small-scale events within a hotel-casino “bubble” in Las Vegas, and the first event’s tradition can be perpetuated. Also, as has been the case in recent years, the final table can be played in person, after a 30-minute delay on ESPN.

Effects of coronavirus in WSOP 2020

Firstly, the 2020 World Series Poker was scheduled to run from May 26 to July 15 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. But the Covid-19 outbreak forced the series into suspension and possibly cancellation altogether. Las Vegas casinos reopened, but not in most poker rooms.

It’s a tournament that fills hundreds of poker tables at once and creates shoulder-to-shoulder traffic on the hallway, so it’s hard to think of a more appropriate casino activity to spread the virus than tournament jujube without taking part in crowded nightclubs – especially a huge toast like WSOP

The best poker tournaments

Firstly, when it comes to the best poker tournament in the world, the name of the annual World Series of Poker of USA United States comes first. During the 1970s historical series, which precedes the 1970s, attracts players from around the world. As a result, each poker in this series competes as a symbol of ultimate success – a WSOP gold bracelet.

In addition, every year thousands of insect tournaments are held around the world, many of which are local or regional events. During 2018, WSOP online lasted 50 days, and the average size of 78 event venues between the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas was 1,588 entries. As a result, it broke the attendance record by providing 123,865 entries for the sixth year in a row. Consequently, 18,105 players won prize money, of which 28 players earned $1 million or more.

However, read about another tournament: Party Poker Live

The world poker series history

That is to say, by the seventies, the top poker spread mostly with other gambling and casino games. It wasn’t until then that it began to change when Benny Binion, the owner of a Las Vegas casino, invited seven of the world’s best poker players to fight the “World Series of the Best Poker”. 

For example, Doyle Brunson, Puggy Pearson, Amarillo Slim, Sailor Roberts, Johnny Moss, Crandell Addington, and Carl Cannon took part in the series and were finally asked to vote for the winner. Likewise, each player cast their first vote, so they were asked to vote for their second-best player to decide the winner.

As a result, the title goes to Johnny Moss to return next year to win the WSOP online main event for the first time in the tournament. Consequently, the six players each bought for 10,000 10,000, which adds up to about 65,000 for today’s inflation. Certainly, Moss beat Puggy Pearson’s heads-up to win $30,000 in the remnant series.

The final verdict

Above all, there have been 18 online WSOP bracelet events in history since its first debut in 2015 before 2020. The 101 bracelets offered in the series this year before the suspension of this year’s Live WSOP were from a slate to 14 online events, the most in a single year. That is to say, bracelet leader Phil Helmuth tweeted on the first day of the 2020 WSOP online event that he headed to Las Vegas to take part in the poker tournament.
