Players Info - Day 1
The World Series of Poker $50,000 Poker Players Championship (PPC), which was created in 2006, is considered the tournament where the best of the best take on one another and duke it out in a variety of poker games, a reflection of all-around poker skill. Imagine playing the likes of Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, and Daniel Negreanu five days in a row in a short-handed mixed format.
Needless to say, the hefty price tag coupled with a small, elite field created a legacy for the PPC where champions are considered among the greatest overall poker players. A quick glance at its 14-year history shows nothing but greatness among champions, from John Hennigan to Mike Gorodinsky, and with the late David "Chip" Reese as perhaps the event's most fitting inaugural winner back in 2006.
Winning once is the poker professional's dream. Winning two? You're in a league of your own. But winning the toughest event with poker's best three times? Only one man achieved that improbable feat on this day back in 2018, after winning his first two titles in 2010 and 2012: Michael Mizrachi.
This summer, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) will hold 66 gold bracelet events online between WSOP.com and GG Poker.
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.
WSOP.com will hold 33 events – one each day for the month of July – while the other 33 will take place on GG Poker.
For players either in Nevada or New Jersey (remember, you must be 21+ to participate), or those planning to travel in, PokerNews put together all the information you need to know and also answered some lingering questions, which you can read here.
The first step in getting set up to play on WSOP.com is to download the client. You can do so for both mobile (Android and iOS) and desktop (Windows 7 or higher and Mac OS X 10.6.8).
Also, the WSOP.com client can only support playing one table at a time on mobile.
Finally, pot-limit Omaha (PLO) games and tournaments are not compatible on mobile and must be played via a computer.
Cards are in the air for Event #3: $500 NLH Turbo Deepstack!
Independence Day weekend may make it difficult to find time to fit poker in between the barbeques, fireworks, and celebrations that most of us are attending, but the WSOP.com Online Bracelet Series has a solution for you; two straight days of turbocharged action! Event #3: $500 NLH Turbo Deepstack gives players a chance to earn a coveted WSOP Gold Bracelet in rapid order, with accelerated blind levels and a shorter registration and rebuy period ensuring the action is fast and furious throughout. The tournament, like all others during the series this month, begins at 3 p.m. PST (or 6 p.m. EST).
Players in today's turbo tournament will start with 40,000 chips, and blinds will begin at 25/50. The levels will increase every 8 minutes, and late registration and two rebuys are allowed for the first two hours and fifty-five minutes of play.
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.
