Satellite qualifiers for the WSOP Online series run June 1-30
The most ambitious schedule in the history of U.S.-facing WSOP online bracelet events plays out this summer. A total of 33 bracelet events await U.S. players in the WSOP Online series, which runs July 1 through August 1 on WSOP.com in Nevada and New Jersey.
The buy-ins for those 33 tournaments range from $333 (Event #10: No-Limit Hold’em) to $7,777 (Event #25: No-Limit Hold’em Lucky 7s High Roller). U.S. players can get into WSOP Online events via satellite qualifiers, however, potentially spinning up a miniscule entry fee into WSOP bracelet glory.
WSOP.com revealed the satellite schedule for the 2021 WSOP Online series. Satellites run June 1-30, and include qualifiers for the $10,000 Main Event at the live 2021 World Series of Poker.
The satellites run on both WSOP.com Nevada and WSOP.com New Jersey throughout June.

WSOP.com running four $215 satellites to the $10,000 Main Event
Perhaps the most exciting satellite opportunity on the schedule comes in the form of qualifying tournaments for the 2021 World Series of Poker Main Event. While the other satellites on the schedule all award tickets to WSOP Online events, opportunities to qualify for poker’s biggest live tournament run every Sunday in June.
Starting on June 6, WSOP.com will host a $200+15 satellite qualifier to the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship. That tournament is better known as the WSOP Main Event, and is scheduled for Nov. 4-17 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
The $200+15 satellites will award one $10,000 Main Event seat for every 50 players that enter the qualifier. The Main Event satellites start at 6:30 EDT, with one running per day on June 6, June 13, June 20, and June 27.
Also included on the satellite schedule are qualifiers for $500 and $1,000 WSOP Online bracelet events. The WSOP Online schedule hosts nine different $500 bracelet tournaments, as well as five $1,000 bracelet events.
Winning a satellite ticket in a $500 or $1,000 qualifier awards entry into any WSOP Online event at the price point.
The “Main Event” of the WSOP Online series plays as a $1,000 buy-in, in the form of Event #32: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em Championship. Event #32 begins on Saturday, July 31, and will likely draw one of the biggest player pools across the WSOP Online series.
