Player sharing brings NJ, Nevada to WSOP event via online satellites
The World Series of Poker starts May 29 and for most poker players, sitting down at the tables at the Rio in Las Vegas would be a dream come true. This year, however, online players in New Jersey and Nevada can live that dream without actually traveling to Vegas through four online WSOP events. Thanks to player sharing, East Coast players physically located in New Jersey and players anywhere in Nevada will be able to play through WSOP.com.
WSOP.com is still running satellites for both live and online events. Online satellites are daily and include satellites for the $10,000 WSOP Main Event on Sundays. Get the full online satellite schedule at our Promotions page.
Here’s a look at the four scheduled online events in this year’s World Series of Poker. Winners of the online events will receive WSOP gold bracelets.
The first is Event 10, a $500,000 guaranteed event scheduled for June 3 at 6:30 p.m. EDT. The event has a $365 buy-in and is a one-day tournament.
Satellites are running daily for the event. WSOP.com is also holding the Marquee 33 satellite, which guarantees 33 seats for the tournament. The satellite is scheduled for 5 p.m. EDT June 2.
Next up is Event 47, a $565 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha tournament on June 22 at 6:30 p.m. EDT. The tournament does allow for re-entry, but you’ll have to move quick as you’ll only have about 30 seconds to make up your mind if you want to get back in. Satellites for the event are on weekends.
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. EDT. Again, there is a 30-second shot at re-entry. Satellites for the event are running Tuesdays and Sundays.
The last online event is 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. EDT.
Satellites run daily for this event starting June 1 including the $75 direct entry satellites at 6:45 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. EDT. There will also be a special satellite guaranteeing five seats June 29 at 9:15 p.m. EDT for a $100 buy-in.
