WSOP Online to Offer Largest Spring OC Series in April
One could assume that the crew at WSOP.com is inspired by the recent success of its WSOP Online Super Circuit Series. It was a last-minute offering when the World Series of Poker was forced to cancel its WSOP Circuit stops domestically and internationally for several months. They very quickly put together an online series for players in New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware.
Every one of the 18 events surpassed its guarantee by quite a lot; most of the events tripled their guarantees. The series that originally guaranteed $1.24 million in prize pools ended out paying out a total of $3,945,350 in prize money.
Within days of that series ending, the World Series of Poker executives compiled the Spring Online Championships for April.
The series is nothing new for WSOP.com, but the schedule and its guarantees are higher than any series in the past. Chalk it up to being the only regulated online poker in Nevada and Delaware (and one of few in New Jersey) while every casino is closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

–Event 2: $215 NLHE Sunday Special Edition with reentry ($100K GTD)
–Event 3: $55 NLHE Sunday 50 with rebuy and add-on ($50K GTD)
And finally, on the last day, Sunday, May 3, there will be a Main Event, Player Appreciation Event, and more.
