The WSOP Online Circuit Series kicks off on Jan. 14 with the first in a slate of online tournaments marking the beginning of a new season of Circuit Events for 2021.
As live poker remains a challenge due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 season will be expanded online. With comprehensive leaderboards and ranking systems, the 13 online events will include added prize money and more than 180 WSOP Gold Rings.
WSOP.COM will be the official home for a comprehensive new season of WSOP Circuit Events in the US, with incentives and a championship model reminiscent of its live counterpart.
The WSOP Online Circuit Series will have an online festival monthly in 2021 in the Nevada and New Jersey markets. An additional 13th online circuit event is earmarked pending the launch of the WSOP.COM service in a newly regulated market.
All tournament series will feature 12 official WSOP gold ring events, with four special “Super Circuits” having an expanded slate of 18 gold ring events, including $1,000 and $2,000 high roller events and a $500 PLO tournament. New for 2021, some tournaments will be co-branded with official host casino venues, highlighting “cash at the cage” buy-in and cash out availability while offering its out-of-market players special promotional rates to stay onsite.
“Players deserve great tournaments and great value year-round, and that’s what we aim to do with the 2021 WSOP Online Circuit Series,” said Ty Stewart, WSOP Executive Director. “We’ve been thrilled with the big prize pools for WSOP.COM events in 2020, and we only expect to see that grow with this new model.”
In total, the WSOP Online Circuit Series will offer over $600,000 in added prize money across a variety of promotions and events. Each gold ring event will assign leaderboard points for “in the money” performances, which will be tracked to create eligibility for freeroll events and other incentives. Information on the WSOP Online Circuit Series rankings methodology is available at WSOP.COM.
