The ultimate goal of most poker tournament aficionados is laying claim to a WSOP Gold Bracelet. For 2021, the quest to earn a bracelet begins today, with the WSOP.com Online Bracelet Event series kicking off with Event #1: $500 NLH The Big 500 Kick-Off set to begin at 3 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (or 6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time for New Jersey residents).
33 bracelets are set to be given out on WSOP.com over the next month, with another 33 to be handed out on GGPoker in August. Players looking to win a bracelet on WSOP.com must be physically located in Nevada or New Jersey to participate in the series, while the GGPoker version of the WSOP online will cater to international players.
"The bar has been set with last year’s record-breaking series, but we’re hoping to raise it even higher this year," WSOP Director Gregory Chochon told PokerNews earlier 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."
Event #1 Overview
The opening event of the 2021 WSOP.com Online Bracelet Series gives players 20,000 in starting chips, with blinds starting at 25/50 and increasing every 15 minutes. Players who bust the tournament may re-enter up to three times.
Re-entry and late registration for this tournament will remain open for three hours and fifty-five minutes, or until 6:55 p.m. PST (or 9:55 p.m. EST). This is a one-day event, meaning the tournament will play down to a winner in a single session. The winner will be awarded a WSOP Gold Bracelet.
