What About International Players?

Events for international players will be held on GGPoker, and they will take place from July 19th to September 6th. This will be the first time that poker players outside of the United States will be able to compete for a WSOP bracelet online.

The Poker Community Reacts

Poker pro Ryan Laplante polled his Twitter followers to find out what they think of the decision to bring the entirety of the 2020 World Series of Poker online. The reviews were mixed.

players react to WSOP online
There is a fairly even split among poker players, regarding their feelings towards an all-online World Series of Poker.

Some players are concerned that the WSOP is diluting bracelet value by making so many bracelet events available online.  There are significantly more bracelets this year than there have in previous years (for example, 2016 had 69, and 2018 had 78) – and, 2019 had 90 due to it being the 50th anniversary of the tournament. So, that issue is being heavily debated on forums and Twitter, as poker fans wonder if earning a bracelet in this year’s online WSOP will carry as much prestige as earning a live bracelet in previous years.

On the other hand, plenty of poker players are thrilled that they have the chance to play in the most prestigious tournament in the world – even if they can’t actually travel to Las Vegas. Previously, there were rumours that the WSOP wouldn’t take place at all this year, so it’s a pleasant surprise that bracelets will be awarded in 2020.
