According to the latest news about poker and its tournaments, the 2020 WSOP Global Casino Championship will be hosted in a different way this year - online.
COVID-19 and its consequences made an impact on all events that were planned for this year. Many competitions have undergone some changes as well. For example, the WSOP event – the Global Casino Championship – will be organized in the online format because of the lockdown.
What to expect from the web format?
The WSOP Global Casino Championship organizers will provide access to the tournament in the online mode and they have a positive attitude to its new format. It had to take place in summer, namely August, but, later, it was postponed to September 13. The basic principles of this version are similar to a standard event: players will contend for the WSOP bracelet and a large sum of money – 1 million dollars.
Instead of the initially specified venue, participants will play on WSOP.com. Notwithstanding the fact that they will be competing on the website, they have to do it from such states, as Nevada or New Jersey.
