The higher-ups at the 2020 World Series of Poker released their schedule for 14 online bracelet events, which is an uptick from last year's virtual schedule. Buy-ins will range from as low as $400 all the way up to $10,000. Players are eligible to play within the state limits of Nevada and/or New Jersey. All 14 online events at WSOP.com are bracelet events.

Ready for some online bling? The WSOP decided to dole out online bracelets over at WSOP.com a couple of years ago and it's been a big success. Hey, the summers are probably the best time to play on the WSOP.com website because it's got lots of heavy volume with the WSOP running at the same time. Even if you're in Nevada or New Jersey this summer, make sure you bring your laptop and fire up WSOP.com for a shot at some online bling.

14 events doesn't sound like a lot but let's put it this way, the 1977 World Series of Poker at Binion's Horseshoe in downtown Las Vegas had 13 events on its schedule during May 1977. If you know your poker history, you know Texas Dolly shipped the $10K Main Event along with winning another bracelet in 10k Stud Split. Bobby Baldwin shipped a couple of events that year along with a guy named Fats Morgan. Damn, you gotta love old-school poker nicknames.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is than in a decade or more, there will be an entirely online version of the WSOP with probably 30-40 events. Heck, in twenty years there will be an equal amount of online events. Of course, this all hinges on the federal government finally legalizing online poker across all 50 states.

For now, the suits at the WSOP are throwing online grinders a bone. Well, 14 bones if you really want to be a nit about it. You really cannot complain with 14 chances at online bling without event leaving the confines of your home, condo, hotel room, or Air B n B. It's time to play pantsless, shirtless, or even Al Fresco. With online WSOP events, you can toke up as much as you want without worrying if your table mate will rat you out. You can pet your pets and have your cat curl up on your lap to help stave off the bad beats. You can eat as many snacks as you want without anyone giving you guff. Heck, you can even drop a deuce while flopping the nuts if you need to. After all, online bling is at stake.

The lowest buy-in is $400. Wow, talk about winning a bracelet on the cheap. There's two $400 events. There are a handful of $500 events including a pair of Deepstack events and a special Online Summer Saver on July 12.

There's a special $777 buy-in PLO event that's 7-handed. Oh yeah! Give me some of the PLO online bling. And yes, there's a 6-max online event with a $600 price tag.

Three online events were tagged as Freezeout events. That includes the $800 buy-in Freezeout KO Deepstack NL on June 9 that has 10 minute levels and a 40K starting stack. On June21, there's a $500 buy-in Online NL Freezeout that has 15 minutes levels and only a 20K starting stack. The WSOP Online Super High Roller takes place on July 2. The price tag is a juicy $10,000 with 20 minute levels and 30K starting stack. The 10K is the highest buy-in among the 14 events.

The Online NL Championship has a $1,000 buy0in and that's set to go down on June 28. There's a pair of online high roller affair. The first online High Roller has a $3,200 price tag and set to run on July 1. The balla Super High Roller online bracelet event is on July 2 and it's a freezeout.

The suits at the WSOP have been slowing revealing events on their schedule in bundles such as Freezeouts, Branded Events, Value Menu, $1,500 Events, $10K Championships, and High Rollers.
