2020 WSOP online bracelet events to begin July 1st
There may not be an official World Series of Poker this summer in Las Vegas but that is not stopping the WSOP from running online bracelet events. On Monday, it was revealed that a total of 85 online bracelet events would be split between GGPoker and WSOP.com.
For the first time, GG Poker will run at least 50 bracelet events on the network starting July 19th through September 6th for players outside of the United States. The announcement follows a successful run of WSOP Circuit events held on GG Poker last month. WSOP.com will once again host bracelet events for New Jersey and Nevada players, with a single bracelet event held every day of the month during July. PokerGo will stream some of the events online with a delay through PokerGo.
