Precisely two weeks after dropping the tentative dates or a live annual WSOP stop in Las Vegas and confirming WSOP Online’s return, WSOP.com, on April 14, unveiled the complete schedule for the domestic leg (open only to players located in Nevada & New Jersey) of WSOP Online 2021.

The resounding success of the inaugural WSOP Online last year had all but confirmed a rerun this year. And since the health emergency is still far from over, WSOP Online was always on the cards.

The online series kicks off on the All-American Poker Network, WSOP.com, on July 1, 2021, and will award as many as 33 bracelets across its month-long run until August 1 – two more bracelets than the 31 WSOP.com handed out last year. Once again, only players geo-located in Nevada and New Jersey can play, although the press release by WSOP.com carries the caveat that new jurisdictions could be added pending regulatory approval.

The WSOP has branded the schedule into theme-based weeks. So, if Week #1 is the Premier Week (July 1 – 8), coming up next is the Micro Madness (July 8 – 11), PLO Week (July 12 – 21), Double Bracelet Day (July 25), and the closing chapter, i.e., the Championship Week (July 26 – August 1).

The series will wind down with the $1 Million GTD $500 NLHE Grand Finale on the series’ closing day, i.e., August 1.

Talking about the US schedule, WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said, “Poker deserves a big finish to 2021, and we’re looking to heat things up this summer. We expect to offer great value tournaments as well as comprehensive satellites to qualify for Las Vegas in the Fall.”

The WSOP tweeted the announcement.
