Less than a week after going live in Pennsylvania, WSOP.com has introduced a Pennsylvania-only online bracelet series consisting of eight events, with buy-ins ranging from $400 to $3,200.
Pennsylvania players aren’t eligible to compete in the current WSOP online bracelet series — for players in Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware only — which started on July 1 and concludes on Aug. 1.
As the newest state with a legal online poker offering from WSOP.com, Pennsylvania has yet to approve a player-pooling agreement with other legal jurisdictions, despite early hopes that such compacts would be in place by now.
WSOP.com declared itself “officially live” in Pennsylvania today after a soft-launch period that began on Monday. After a successful field trial, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approved the World Series of Poker’s online offering for full real-money play.
The Pennsylvania series will run from Aug. 8 – 15, with digital cards in the air each day at 5:30 pm ET. All eight events are variations of No-Limit Hold’em.
- Event #1, Sunday, Aug. 8: NLH Keystone Kickoff ($500)
- Event #2, Monday, Aug. 9: NLH PKO [Progressive Knockout] ($500)
- Event #3, Tuesday, Aug. 10: NLH High Roller ($3,200)
- Event #4, Wednesday, Aug. 11: NLH 6-Max ($400)
- Event #5, Thursday, Aug. 12: NLH Lucky 7’s ($777)
- Event #6, Friday, Aug. 13: NLH PKO [Progressive Knockout] ($400)
- Event #7, Saturday, Aug. 14: NLH MonsterStack ($600)
- Event #8, Sunday, Aug. 15: NLH PA Championship ($1,000)
“We are thrilled to be opening up WSOP.com to the state of Pennsylvania,” said Ty Stewart, SVP of the World Series of Poker at Caesars Entertainment. “The real winners in this expansion are the players.”
The series is open only to players who are physically present in the state of Pennsylvania as a given event is being played. Players who have WSOP.com accounts in other states — in particular, Pennsylvania’s neighboring states of New Jersey and Delaware — are welcome to participate, but they must be physically present in Pennsylvania to do so.
WSOP.com is offering satellites to these events with entry fees as low as $1.
