WSOP.com Continues Online Summer Satellite Tournaments
The first online event at the 2018 World Series of Poker was held June 3 and has to be called a rousing success. The event marked the first time that online players from New Jersey could participate in the Nevada-based event under a player sharing agreement between the two states.
The total number of buy-ins for the event was 2,972 for a total prize pool of $974,816. The winner was William Reymond of Texas, who won just under $156,000. WSOP.com has not announced how many New Jersey online players were involved—online events usually attract a lot of players already in Nevada for live WSOP events—but New Jersey players pepper the final cash list.
Three more online events are scheduled:
• Event 47, a $565 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha tournament on June 22 at 6:30 p.m.
• Event 61 is the $1,000 online Championship with a $1 million prize pool guarantee. The event is scheduled for June 29 at 6 p.m.
• Event 63, a $3,200 buy-in high-roller event with another $1 million guaranteed prize pool. The event is scheduled for June 30 at 3:30 p.m.
While the World Series is underway, online players can also cash in on several special tournaments and promotions under what WSOP.com is calling its $15 million summer.
Along with its online events and satellites, WSOP.com is running its online championships, with more than 100 special tournaments running through July 1. The tournaments carry more than $3 million in prize pool guarantees and include an online championships leaderboard.
