WSOP Online Championships Highlights

The operator is looking to take full advantage of the new software platform now uniformly available to players in New Jersey, Michigan, and Nevada, so the latest series brings a great mix of regular tournaments, PKO events, and Mystery Bounties. For those who prefer four hole cards over two, there is a fair number of Pot Limit Omaha events in the mix as well.

The Main Event takes place on the last day of the series, featuring a $320 buy-in and a generous guarantee of $300,000. There are no satellites to this tournament showing in the lobby right now, but it’s very likely that WSOP Online will be hosting some in the coming weeks.

Beyond the Main Event, there are 18 events with guarantees of $100,000. The most affordable in this group are $100 Sunday Majors, which take place every Sunday until July 7.

As mentioned, the WSOP Online Championships series features a fair number of Mystery Bounty events, which many players in NJ and NV might be eager to try. Somewhat surprisingly, though, there are no MB tournaments under $55.

For those with big bankrolls, there are nine events with buy-ins of $1,000 on the docket. Six of these are Mystery Bounties, two are short-handed NLHE events, and there is one short-handed PLO tournament in the highest buy-in bracket.
