Winning a coveted World Series of Poker bracelet has always been an epitome of success in the field of poker with the industry’s most regarded professionals donning a few of the official gold. To date, claiming the prestigious award has become more attainable for players all over the world with the help of GGPoker’s online WSOP offerings. The past two editions have awarded a total of 50 bracelets for the year 2020, and a lesser 33 for last year’s events. While the annual live festival has resumed back to its original summer schedule and much of travel restrictions have loosened up, it remains to be good news for those who cannot make the flight as GGPoker is expected to bring in a third edition of its esteemed WSOP Online bracelet series.

The awaited festival is assumed to run through the months of August to September, similar to its previous events. The news broke out via response of the network’s representative to a player’s query on the site’s own Reddit community, noting that the dates/ schedule is still currently being worked out and that further details would be announced on the site when available. 

Last season’s buy-ins ranged from $50 to $25,000 across its classic events Millionaire Maker, Big 50, Big 500, Colossus and additional its share of GG signature tournaments. Its WSOP Online Main Event which boasted a grand prize guarantee of $20 million also fell short by over half a million dollars in value, having carried a price tag of $5,000 per entry. Considering the brand’s recorded history, a few changes may be made for this year’s festival with full details to be reported once the official announcement is out.
