This new series is the 13th for the WSOP in 2020. This year has been a crazy one due to the coronavirus pandemic and while the virus has been hard to deal with, online poker has thrived. The WSOP has taken advantage of the number of people stuck in their homes and offered premium gaming action.
This series may not even be the last for 2020 as there is still a month and a half left in the year. So far, WSOP has dominated the industry, offering online poker players in the US continual series and events to keep things interesting during a crazy and uncertain time.
