With the immediate future of live poker still cloudy as COVID-19 continues to put a damper on, the World Series of Poker Circuit has opted to shift things online for 2021.

Last year’s WSOP International Circuit schedule had 14 stops, though with the note that more stops are expected, one would think that the 2017-2018 schedule will end up topping that.

The 2018 - 19 International circuit begins August 23rd 2018, review the schedule to find out an international circuit stop in your country. Schedule is updated regularly. This applies to both WSOP events and for other venues that work with Bravo Poker Tournament software. (If you have previously registered for the WSOP or other events via Bravo Poker Live in 2016, 2017 or 2018, you will already have an account and can just log-in).

Rather than wait around and see if things clear up, the WSOP announced plans for monthly online Circuit events to take place throughout the year on, in a recent press release. They'll award more than 180 gold rings during these WSOP.com events, each featuring at least 12 and sometimes as many as 18 up for grabs. One has even been tentatively planned for a yet-to-be-revealed legalized market.

Additionally, things will build throughout the season toward a year-end championship event, in much the same manner the Circuit typically builds toward the Global Casino Championship. Small event-specific freerolls will also reward players on an immediate basis, increasing the value available.

Potential for 13 Series

The WSOP Circuit typically offers one or more series per month, and the online schedule will look much the same for 2021. Each month, at least one event will take place awarding either 12 or 18 rings depending on series length.

The series are open to players in Nevada and New Jersey — plus perhaps those in the mystery market hinted at in the presser.

In an effort to encourage out-of-market players to participate, the WSOP has opted to brand some of the tournaments with partnered Caesars properties, offering special room rates for those coming into town to fire off in the poker tournaments. For example, the May series will be 'hosted' by Caesars Atlantic City, while the August one will be at Rio in Las Vegas. Players who attend these properties can buy in and cash out winnings locally at the casino cashiers.

As for the unscheduled event, it's 'pending launch of the WSOP.com service in a newly regulated market,' according to the presser. Given that Michigan was the latest state to legalize online poker, it could be tabbed for a series, but online poker has yet to launch there and WSOP wasn't expected to be one of the brands available at the outset. The other main possibility is Pennsylvania, where WSOP.com has obtained a license but hasn't launched. The company owns a venue there — Harrah's Philadelphia — but the lack of player pooling with other states would seem to be an obstacle.

Added Value from Freerolls and $250K Championship

The normal live Circuit schedule awards 'rakeback' in the form of a huge end-of-season freeroll, and the online 2021 Circuit will have a similar system of rewarding loyal customers.

The biggest chunk will come from the $250,000 Year-End Championship, scheduled for Dec. 28.

Every ring winner during the season will automatically earn a ticket for the Championship. Monthly leaderboard winners — everyone who cashes a ring event will earn points, as usual — will also earn seats. Seats will also be awarded to winners of 'Second Chance Fast Forward' tournaments — anyone playing a minimum of four events during a given series will get a ticket to the Second Chance. Finally, the top 50 points earners who didn't otherwise win a seat during the course of the season will also be invited, in keeping with the Global Casino Championship's policy.

In total, the WSOP plans to seat 256 players for the Championship. Gambling in ok.

Those looking for more immediate rewards will get them in the form of a $25K freeroll to run following the conclusion of each series. Usually taking place just a few days after the last event has wrapped, the $25K will be awarded to a small group of players: ring winners from that series and the top 10 points earners from that series.

Those in the top 10 points standings in a given series will also divvy up $10,000 worth of WSOP.com tournament tickets.

According to the WSOP, more than $600K in total will be given back to the players through these mechanisms.

Building Off Expanded 2020 Online Circuit

Despite live poker slowly creeping back into place in the U.S. — a major piece will be back in place when the WPT returns to action in Florida soon — the advent of the monthly online Circuits would seem to indicate that there are no immediate plans for the return of live Circuit events. If they did return, it's not known at this time whether these online points would also count toward any live leaderboard as they do in a normal season.

Ultimately, those players located in regulated markets will be happy to get a selection of monthly tournaments with big prize pools, something that was only coming around once every few months in the pre-pandemic landscape. Players demonstrated their appetites for the the online Circuits when they build huge prize pools during 2020, including some six-figure windfalls.

“Players deserve great tournaments and great value year-round, and that’s what we aim to do with the 2021 WSOP Online Circuit Series,” said Ty Stewart, WSOP executive director. “We’ve been thrilled with the big prize pools for WSOP.COM events in 2020, and we only expect to see that grow with this new model.”

    World Series of Poker Circuit

Live poker may be a struggle at the moment, but the regulated US online poker market continues to grow. That received a significant boost Wednesday with the announcement of a packed World Series of PokerOnline Circuit schedule.

The first Online Circuit Series kicks off Jan. 14 with a total of 13 events in 2021 on WSOP.com. The online festival will be available for players in Nevada and New Jersey.

Some added good news for US online poker players? WSOP.com’s announcement hinted that a 13th series could be in a new market.

“An additional 13th online circuit event is earmarked pending launch of the WSOP.com service in a newly regulated market,” a news release announcing the circuit launch notes.

That location is likely Pennsylvania or Michigan. PA seems the most obvious as the platform has been approved in the Keystone State.

WSOP.com adds to US online poker offerings

Players can expect an experience as close as possible to traditional live WSOP Circuit events. The schedule includes an online festival each month throughout 2021.

All tournament series will feature at least 12 official WSOP gold ring events. Four special “Super Circuit” series come with an expanded slate of 18 ring events. Super Circuits also include $1,000 and $2,000 high rollers and a $500 Pot Limit Omaha tournament.

Some series will be co-branded with official WSOPC host casinos, highlighting “cash at the cage” buy-in and cash out availability. These events also offer out-of-market players special promotional rates to stay onsite.

“Players deserve great tournaments and great value year-round, and that’s what we aim to do with the 2021 WSOP Online Circuit Series,” WSOP executive director Ty Stewart said in a news release. “We’ve been thrilled with the big prize pools for WSOP.com events in 2020, and we only expect to see that grow with this new model.”

What else can players expect from WSOP.com?

In total, WSOP Online Series events feature over $600,000 in added prize money across a variety of promotions. That includes leaderboard points awarded for every gold ring event.

Players can earn eligibility for freeroll tournaments and other incentives. The entire schedule culminates with the WSOP Online Circuit Championship. This signature tournament comes with some extra incentive – an official WSOP gold bracelet.

The year-end Circuit Championship is capped at 256 players competing for a $250,000 prize pool. Players can qualify by winning a:

  • gold ring event during the 2021 season.
  • $10,000 Player of the Month leaderboard.
  • Second Chance Fast Forward.

Those who finish among the top 50 players on the cumulative circuit leaderboard also earn an entry. Here’s a look at the complete schedule:
