Running on WSOP.com for players in Nevada and New Jersey only, the summer festival will run from July 1st to August 1st, and feature weeks dedicated to PLO and Championship events, as well as MicroMadness events, Super High Rollers and a $1million GTD Grand Finale.

Once again separated into “domestic” and “international” segments, with the latter running on GGPoker and its schedule due to be released later this month, the WSOP Online 2021 will start with The Big $500 Kick-Off.

Last year’s domestic version of the WSOP Online series generated prize pools totaling $26,871,265 across 31 bracelet events, and organisers are hoping this year will be even bigger and better.

It was April 1st when they revealed plans for live WSOP series in both Vegas and Europe in late Autumn, with the online version scheduled for the more traditional summer slot.

WSOP Executive Director, Ty Stewart, said: “Poker deserves a big finish to 2021 and we’re looking to heat things up this summer. We expect to offer great value tournaments as well as comprehensive satellites to qualify for Las Vegas in the Fall."

Those satellite plans are not yet part of the schedule, and it’s also possible other states might be included come July, “pending regulatory approval”.

This year, the domestic schedule will “embrace several themed weeks”, including the traditional “Crazy Eights”, a $888 buy-in NLHE event on July 8th.  

PLO Week runs from July 14th to 21st with two bracelet events (from a total of four four-card golds to be won, as well as daily side events with significant guarantees.

WSOP.COM’s first-ever Championship Week starts on Monday, July 26th with a $1,000 buy-in Online PLO Championship and features a $3,200 High Roller Championship.

The $1,000 buy-in No Limit  Championship runs on July 31st , last year’s event attracting 2,126 entries and paying out $2,019,700, the “largest online tournament in US regulated markets history”

The $500 NLHE Grand Finale closes out the series,  and the $1million GTD prizepool is the largest in the history of WSOP.COM.
