The World Series of Poker 2020 starts in May and will last until mid-July. During that time, players will have an opportunity to go down to Rio and play a plethora of interesting events.
The biggest poker festival in the world also decided to pay attention to online events. That’s why players can apply for them as well, and even win gold bracelets if they’re successful. The WSOP officials announced a total of 14 events that will be available on the web this year.
Everyone who is inside the borders of Nevada or New Jersey will have an opportunity to take part in these events during the runtime of the tournament. You don’t actually have to be a resident of either of these states, but just need to be physically present in one of them to become part of the WSOP family.
All online events will start at 3:30 pm Pacific time. The only one that will have a different starting time is Super High Roller Championship, which will start at noon. Therefore, let’s take a quick overview of all 14 events and basic details about them.
