Welcome to Event #12: $500 The BIG 500 No-Limit Hold'em


It's going to be a "BIG" day on WSOP.com, as Event #12: $500 The BIG 500 No-Limit Hold'em kicks off at 3 p.m. PDT, and a huge field is expected to fire away.

Players will start with 20,000 in tournament chips for their $500 buy-in, and blind levels are 15 minutes in length. Late registration is open for three hours and fifty-five minutes, and players unfortunate enough to bust have the ability to re-enter up to three times during the late registration period. Re-entries have a thirty-second time limit, so players should make sure they have enough funds in their WSOP.com account prior to the tournament start. Tournament tickets may not be used for re-entry.

This is a single day event meaning the entire tournament will be played out online and the winner will take home a WSOP Gold Bracelet.

Chance "BingShiu" Kornuth was denied a second WSOP online bracelet (and third WSOP bracelet overall) by Raman "Acrogum" Afanasenka in yesterday's Event #11: $500 No-Limit Hold'em Turbo Deepstack 6-Max, and Afanasenka became the first international player to ship a bracelet during the WSOP Online series. Afanasenka, a native of Belarus, took home $128,601 and his first WSOP gold bracelet for his impressive performance.

The BIG 500 is expected to be a jam-packed affair, and Aaron "Aaronmermel" Mermelstein, Tony "Panoramic" Dunst, and Jason "GETVLOGGED" Abolsky have already signed up and will be firing from the start.

This is the twelfth of 85 bracelet events being held on WSOP.com (31 events – one each day for the month of July) and GG Poker (holding the remaining 54 events).

The former client will cater to players in Nevada and New Jersey (players in Delaware are NOT able to participate), while the latter will serve the international base.
