Note that the Main Event is listed in bold. However, do not confuse this Main Event as THE Main Event of the 2021 WSOP; it is the Main Event of this part of the series. The actual $10K buy-in World Championship Main Event with its traditional format will take place in Las Vegas in November.
Also, the initial flight information for Events 31-33 is not listed on the GGPoker schedule page but will hopefully appear soon.
Finally, remember that all final table players will use their full given names instead of screen names during final table play.

Several of the tournaments, mostly final tables of those events, will be streamed live (with a slight delay) on GGPoker.TV. Longstanding WSOP commentators Norman Chad and Lon McEachern will do the play-by-play for the online broadcasts.
Only two tournaments are scheduled for broadcast at this time:
Aug 26: Event 15 Heads-Up NLHE Championship recap and finals preview
Aug 28: Event 15 semi-finals and finals
Sept 9: Event 27 Online Main Event Championship recap and finals preview
Sept 11: Event 27 final table coverage
Become a Team Champion
The winner of the GGPoker-WSOP 2021 Online Main Event will walk away with an impressive sum of money. GGPoker will also offer that player a spot on GGTeam Champions.
Being on the team invokes certain privileges, not the least of which is the package of tournament entries worth $50K. (That prize package includes seats into the WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas, the WSOP Europe Main Event in Rozvadov, and the GGPoker Online Series Main Event.) Those players also receive a custom avatar, a special badge, unique affiliate code, and GGPlatinum Fish Buffet status.
The previous inductee to Team Champions was Niklas Astedt, who won the WSOP Circuit Main Event online at GGPoker in June.
Niklas Astedt Seals the Deal!
Congrats to Niklas who has conquered a Titanic field of 14,496 players and wins #18 WSOPC $525 Main Event!
