One of the most popular online poker tournaments at the moment is the World Series of Poker Super Circuit Online Series which started several days ago — on May 1 and will last until May 30. In other words, it will take place on identical dates as it did back in 2020. There will be a total of 18 ring events, but players will also have an opportunity to take part in cash games and win two more gold rings. This is the first time that a cash game comes with the final reward such as this one.
The entire series will feature the guaranteed prize pool of $100 million. This also includes all the side events that won’t feature gold rings as the main prize yet will offer lucrative cash prizes to the best players.
As for the 18 ring events, players will have an opportunity to grab a chunk of the $20 million in guaranteed prizes.
The most important event will definitely be the $525 Main Event that comes with $5 million guaranteed. Day 2 of the Main Event is scheduled for May 30, while the final table will be streamed on Tuesday after that.
