The Ultimate Guide to the 2020 WSOP Online Bracelet Events

When the World Series of Poker kicks off in 2020 it will represent the 51st running of the most popular poker tournament series in the world.

Due to the pandemic, WSOP 2020 will be quite different from the 50 versions that preceded it. Most of the events will be played online with the traditional gathering of poker players in Las Vegas for live events postponed until the fall.

Also new for 2020 is the ability of players outside the US to compete in Online Bracelet Events. International players will be able to participate in Online Bracelet Events on the GGPoker platform. Players in the US states of New Jersey and Nevada will be able to play a different set of Online Bracelet Events on WSOP.com, like they have been able to do in recent years.

When is the 2020 WSOP?

In 2020, the vast majority of World Series of Poker (WSOP) events will take place on the internet between July 1 and September 6, 2020. The traditional summer festival of live events that normally takes place in Las Vegas in June and July has been postponed due to the pandemic. Organizers have indicated that they are aiming to have the live WSOP events take place this fall, although no dates have been announced.

A total of 85 online Bracelet Events will take place this year spread across 2 different online poker platforms.

Beginning on July 1, players in the US states of New Jersey and Nevada will be able to compete for a WSOP gold bracelet on WSOP.com. In all, there will be a total of 31 Bracelet Events available to US players with one bracelet event taking place each day during the month of July.

International players will get their first opportunity to play an online WSOP bracelet event on Sunday July 19 on one of the fastest-growing online poker networks, GGPoker. The schedule of events on GGPoker runs through September 6 (the full 2020 WSOP Schedule is available at the bottom of this page).

The GGPoker WSOP Bracelet Events represent the first time ever that an online bracelet can be won outside of the US.

Where Can You Play WSOP 2020 Online Bracelet Events?

The first online WSOP Bracelet Events of 2020 will take place on WSOP.com and will be available in the states of Nevada and New Jersey. One bracelet event will take place each day during the month of July for a total of 31 events.

Starting on July 19, players outside of the US will be able to try to win a 2020 WSOP bracelet on the GGPoker network. A total of 54 WSOP bracelet events will be hosted on GGPoker through September 6, 2020.

How Many WSOP Bracelet Events Are there in 2020?

Originally, the WSOP planned to offer 14 Online Bracelet Events, which would have been the most ever offered, but after the World Series of Poker summer festival in Las Vegas was postponed due to the pandemic, organizers decided to shift the focus to online poker.

As a result, there will be a total 85 WSOP online Bracelet Events running across WSOP.com and GGPoker. However, the total number of all 2020 WSOP events has not yet been determined.

Following the postponement of the live WSOP Bracelet Events in Las Vegas, organizers did announce that live events will take place during the fall of 2020, but so far, no firm schedule has been announced.

Can Players in Pennsylvania Play in the 2020 WSOP Online Bracelet Events?

No. Currently, the only online poker site available to players in Pennsylvania is PokerStars PA. And while WSOP PA is expected to launch in Pennsylvania in 2020, the state does not yet allow its operators to combine their player pools in Pennsylvania with those in other states the way that New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware do.

Pennsylvania has yet to join the MultiState Internet Gaming Agreement (MIGA) due to the potential for the US Department of Justice to pursue prosecution of online gaming operators that offer their services across state lines under the 1961 Wire Act.

A lawsuit that seeks to clarify that the Wire Act was intended to be limited to sports betting (which is no longer illegal under federal law) is currently ongoing in the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. Lower courts have sided against the DOJ and if the decision of the lower courts is upheld, Pennsylvania is expected to join MIGA and allow operators to share player liquidity with the other states that have legalized online poker.

However, such a decision (and the subsequent actions by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and gaming operators in the state) will not come in time to allow poker players in Pennsylvania to play in the 2020 WSOP Online Bracelet Events.

From What US States Can You Play WSOP Online Bracelet Events?

US players in the states of New Jersey and Nevada are eligible to play in the 2020 WSOP Online Bracelet Events. Players in other states that have legal regulated online poker including Delaware and Pennsylvania are not currently allowed to participate in the events.

Will Players From Outside of the US be Able to Compete for Online Bracelet Events?

Yes. For the first time ever, players outside the US will be eligible to compete in a WSOP Online Bracelet Event. GGPoker is the official partner Online Bracelet partner of the WSOP for international players.

Where Can I Watch WSOP 2020?

Fans have become accustomed to watching WSOP events unfold on television and over the internet via live streams, and despite the changes for 2020, they will still be able to that.

Extensive media coverage for WSOP 2020 is planned to include “significant original content” provided by the World Series of Poker’s official production partner, Poker Central.

Poker Central will be producing live streams, highlight packages, and pilot episodes at its Las Vegas studios for distribution to traditional television broadcasting stations. In addition, the company will schedule virtual bracelet ceremonies and interviews with the winner of each Bracelet Event.

Select Online Bracelet Events will be streamed on Poker Central’s PokerGO app. The events will be streamed on a delay with full cards up action. Long-time WSOP broadcasters Lon McEachern and Norman Chad are expected to take part in the live streams.

Streams will also be available on the GGPoker.TV Twitch Stream. The schedule of streams can be found below. Please Note: The date of the stream may not coincide with the date of the actual tournament.
