The World Series of Poker Circuit announced its first ever online ring events for New Jersey and Nevada. It follows the first WSOP online bracelet events over the summer. The series begins September 18 and includes at least $700,000 in guaranteed prize pools. A total of 13 gold WSOP rings are up for grabs.
Poker players do not need to be permanent residents of New Jersey or Nevada to participate in the events. However, they must be located within the state borders of either state while competing. The WSOP Circuit passes through dozens of host locations throughout the year – the online version will function similar to any other circuit stop.
Like land-based stops scheduled for this year, there are 13 events on the online schedule. The buy-ins for the online stop are slightly lower, but not much. Where the lowest land-based WSOP Circuit event buy-in is set at $250, the online series this month offers a $215 buy-in for is $25,000 guaranteed Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Max event.
Slightly lower buy-ins online are to be expected. The online Main Event offers a $200,000 guarantee for a $525 buy-in, whereas the land-based version is typically a $1,700 buy-in. The price differences make this month’s rings the most affordable to obtain of the 2018 circuit.
The 2018 season kicked off in North Carolina at Harrah’s on August 2. This week, it moved on to Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln, California. The WSOP.com circuit series in Nevada and New Jersey this month is the only online stop on the schedule for this year.
