2020 WSOP Online Event #31 heads-up

After a month of online poker at, the folks at the WSOP awarded its 31st and final bracelet of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online. It's been wild year and despite the lockdowns, quarantine, and shutdowns, the WSOP pivoted in a way to provide poker players with a chance to compete against pros, top players, and poker enthusiasts. The 2020 WSOP Online is far from perfect, but they tried their best to give Americans a shot at winning a bracelet (so long as they figured out a way to get within Nevada or New Jersey state lines). Heck, even one pro won a bracelet in the parking lot of a Whole Foods... which demonstrated his ferocious intent on shipping a bracelet, but it also revealed the absurdity of state-by-state online poker laws in America. Just legalize it already!
