WSOP Starts Spring Online Championships in US

WSOP Starts Spring Online Championships in US

Poker players around the world are waiting for more information about the 2021 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, as well as the summer of online events and the WSOP Europe. This announcement, however, was not about that.

This is just for the small US market in which WSOP.com operates. It is, once again, offering the Spring Online Championships to players located within the Nevada and New Jersey state borders. And though Delaware players are often left out of WSOP Circuit ring and WSOP bracelet events despite sharing tables with the NJ and NV sites, Delaware is included in this Spring Online Championships series.

The numbers should be solid for the tournaments with players from three states, though the events compete (in Nevada and New Jersey) with the month WSOP Circuit events.

Spring Online Championships Schedule

The 2021 Spring Online Championships offers 75 tournaments in total, as well as more than $2M in guarantees and a WSOP championship belt.

WSOP.com announced the series on April 2, and it started on April 6. The tournaments thus far garnered impressive turnout.

-Event 1: $50 NLHE Deepstack R&A ($20K GTD) = 343 players, $39,949 prize pool

-Event 2: $500 NLHE Special Tuesday Showdown Reentry ($75K GTD) = 119 players, $88,263 prize pool

-Event 3: $75 NLHE Reentry Super Turbo ($20K GTD) = 264 players, $30,912 prize pool

The full schedule is listed on the WSOP promotions page and starts with three tournaments per day but revs up toward the last weekend. There will be six events on April 24, six on April 25, three on April 26, and four on April 27.

Spring OC Highlights

Players can compete in the Spring OC series for as little as $10 (Events 7 and 34) and $11 (Event 18). There are quite a few at the $20 and $30 buy-in levels. And there are satellites for everything.

Those looking for higher buy-ins have more opportunities, with Events 23, 40, 46, 66, and 73 offering $1K buy-in High Roller events. Those tournaments offer the biggest guarantees, too:

-Event 17 on April 11: $320 buy-in NLHE Sunday Special Reentry ($100K GTD)

-Event 23 on April 13: $1K buy-in NLHE High Roller Reentry 6-Max ($100K GTD)

-Event 38 on April 18: $215 buy-in NLHE Sunday Special Reentry ($100K GTD)

-Event 73 on April 27: $1K buy-in NLHE High Roller Reentry 6-Max ($125K GTD)

The largest guarantee belongs to the Main Event, the one that will offer a championship belt to the winner, along with the allocated prize money.

-Event 63 on April 25 at 5pm ET: $320 buy-in NLHE Main Event Reentry ($200K GTD)
