Earlier this month, WSOP.com launched in Pennsylvania as one of the latest online poker rooms in the state. Due to the timing of the opening — right around the start of the WSOP Online — many wondered if the state’s players would be able to participate in WSOP Online events this summer.
Now we know the answer.
2021 WSOP Online in PA details
Last week, the World Series of Poker announced that they would be holding eight bracelet events next month.
The schedule starts on August 8th and runs with daily events through August 15th. All eight bracelet events will be held at 5:30 PM ET. While all the events for this leg of the WSOP Online are No Limit Hold’em, they have variety in buy-in size ($400 – $3,200) and structure (PKO, High Roller, 6-Max, MonsterStack).
The series ends with the No-Limit Hold’em PA Championship, a $1,000 buy-in event on August 15th.

Just PA players for now
Players will still not be able to play the WSOP bracelets events that are available to players through Nevada and New Jersey, which are running through July. This is due to the fact that Pennsylvania has not yet entered into a multi-state agreement yet, which would allow players from across state lines to play against each other.
Instead, all of the events recently announced will be exclusive to players — either residents or visitors — that are physically located in Pennsylvania. The development will mean that players who are in PA and other neighboring states, who would have been inclined to travel to neighboring New Jersey to play, might settle for playing in PA instead.
With the WSOP bracelets events on Nevada and New Jersey finishing at the end of the month and PA events announced for August, it is looking though players will have to wait until a bit longer — next year is likely — to play WSOP bracelet events against each other in the three states.
