The World Series of Poker has announced that this week sees the start of its WSOP Fall Online Championships Series. Many states are now legislating and legalizing online gambling in some form or another. It is no surprise to see many new poker tournaments going live. At the same time as PokerStars launches a host of new competitions to its members. These tournaments are open to US online poker players.
A Smorgasbord of Poker Options Over Two Weeks
A total of thirty-seven events are set to appear in the WSOP’s Fall Online Championships Series. This smorgasbord of options kicked off on November 8. It is expected to last fifteen days, finally culminating in the Main Event. This takes place on November 22. That competition features a guaranteed prize pool of $175,000. In addition to a Champion’s Belt for whichever played is deemed to be the winner.
The competition is not limited to one type of poker tournament. While most of the games are No-Limit Hold’em matches, there are also turbo events and knockout tournaments, deep stack, Pot Limit Omaha, 4-Max, 6-Max and 9-Max tables and NLH competitions. Each day will bring a handful of competitions, but some stand out more than others.
