The World Series of Poker (WSOP) will soon organize the first online circuit series in Michigan. It will grant players an opportunity to win the prestigious WSOP gold ring on the WSOP MI application or from their homes.
The poker series will feature 12 rings and $500,000 that will be up for grabs. Thus, bettors will have 12 chances to win the ring. The new poker platform had already announced the number of its ring events and their dates.
Still, Pokerfuse recently unveiled the Series' total guarantees and buy-ins. The events will start on April 20 and have $500,000 prize pools, which exceeds what the operator had advertised by $150,000.
A ring event will take place each day, and it will have a WSOP gold ring champion. But, the buy-ins will be higher than usual as they range from $109 to $1,000.
Besides, higher buy-ins will have high guarantees that will match with each event having a five-figure prize pool except the Main Event, whose cash prize has six figures.
More About the Schedule
No-Limit Hold'em events dominate the WSOP MI's schedule. But, four-card enthusiasts can display their gaming skills in a Pot-Limit Omaha event.
The rest of the schedule will have different formats like a Deep Turbo event suitable for people who like fast, structured tournaments, a $215 buy-in Freezeout event in which each player will get one shot, a $1,000 buy-in Higher Roller for wealthy players, and Progressive Knockouts (PKOs).
The schedule also has a BIG 500 event that will occur on April 28 with a $50,000 guarantee. All the events' re-entries are between two to three times except the Freezeout event, which won't have rebuys.
The first ring event will be a $109 buy-in NLH PKO event with a $20,000 guarantee. Yet, the guarantees might increase drastically over the weekend.
Event No. 5 will be held on April 24. It will be a $215 buy-in Monster Stack tournament with a $75,000 guarantee. Players can assess their knockout prowess with a $215 buy-in bounty event with a $50,000 guarantee between the series' second and last days.
The Circuit Series' final day will be May 1, 2022, and it will feature a $525 buy-in Main Event with $100,000 prize money. Every ring event's champion will get a "_Tournament of Champions_" ticket besides receiving the prize money and WSOP jewelry.
The WSOP MI will hold the Main Event in the 2022 WSOP Las Vegas live series in the summer, and its winner will receive the WSOP gold bracelet. The poker provider will also run several online circuit series in other states.
Pennsylvania players will compete for $500,000; those in Nevada and New Jersey will share one player pool as they compete for more than a $1,000,000 guarantee in the one-ring events. So, WSOP will award about $2,000,000 to poker players in the four states.
Will This Be the Wolverine State's First and Last Online Circuit Series?
Michigan players will start playing multi-jurisdictional poker as the Wolverine State joined the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement (MSIGA). It allows gaming operators to merge player pools across states that joined the agreement.
Joseph "The Kid" Cada, the 2009 Main Event champion and WSOP MI's ambassador, states that Michigan players can now compete with those in other states.
