WSOP Online Offers Satellites and Player Appreciation Event
As poker players pour into Nevada from around the world this weekend and in the coming days, they will be inundated with poker options. There will be tournaments available in nearly every poker room in Las Vegas, with the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino serving as ground zero. Of course, that is where the 50th Annual World Series of Poker will be held.
Most players who want to participate in the 2019 WSOP will be at the Rio, whether for any of the dozens of gold bracelet events on the schedule, the daily tournaments, or the cash games available around the clock. There will be a plethora of poker available from May 29 to July 16.
Of the 89 gold bracelet tournaments, it’s important to remember that nine of them will be online events at WSOP.com. Anyone in New Jersey can register for an account and play.
New Jersey participation is yet to be determined, though the first two online bracelet events will definitely be open to players in Nevada and New Jersey. Everything on the schedule after June 14, per a deadline set by the US Department of Justice, and should be determined before that date with a court ruling. That ruling from the US District Court is expected any day.
As for those in Nevada, the WSOP has revealed what to expect with regard to online events.
