Besides, for the first time, an additional two WSOP Circuit rings will be awarded to cash game specialists No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha/Pot-Limit Omaha-5 leaderboards will determine the invitation list for these two final-table-only events.

WSOP gold bracelets will be up for grabs in the previously-announced WSOP 2021 Online series, which runs on WSOP.com for US players from July 1 through Aug. 1 and at GGPoker for international players from Aug. 1 through Sept. 12. A total of 33 bracelets will be won on WSOP.com, with the same number of bracelet tournaments at GGPoker.

Online satellite tournaments awarding tickets to the live World Series of Poker $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship, better known as “The Main Event”, expected to begin on Nov. 4 in Las Vegas at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, will also be hosted on WSOP.com and at GGPoker beginning Aug. 1. It has been held annually since 1970 and draws thousands of players from more than 100 countries.

GGPoker will also host the WSOP Winter Online Super Circuit later in the year, with dates to be confirmed.

Gregory Chochon, Director of the World Series of Poker said: “The bar has been set with last year’s record-breaking series, but we’re hoping to raise it even higher this year. One of our goals is to provide as many people the chance to become champions as possible. However, we know not everyone can or is comfortable traveling yet, so continuing a robust online bracelet offering in 2021 is a must.”

Steve Preiss GGPoker Head of Poker Operations added: “When GGPoker & WSOP partnered in 2020, we broke world records. Our plans for 2021 are to offer even more to our customers. With massive tournaments, WSOP gold bracelets & rings, and a route into the live WSOP Main Event in November, we hope players will love what we have in store for them.”

Full details on all online WSOP events will be released over the coming weeks and months and will include tournament dates, buy-ins, and other important information.
