Cards are in the air on the virtual felt and play is now underway.
Welcome to the opening WSOP.com online bracelet event of the 2022 World Series of Poker. Event #1: $5,300 No-Limit Hold'em High Roller Freezeout is scheduled to get underway at 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time.
There are 13 online bracelets to be won on WSOP.com for players in Nevada and New Jersey between June 5 and July 17, in addition to the 88 live bracelet events in Las Vegas during the summer.
There’s already over 20 people registered for the tournament an hour before it begins, including Tony “Panoramic” Dunst, Jesse "Dangerous22" Lonis, Mitchell "franzia" Halverson, Katie "katelin" Lindsay, Thomas "HavanaClub" Boivin, and Ryan "Protential" Laplante.
Justin “Jsaliba2" Saliba took down this event during the WSOP online bracelet series in July 2021 for his first bracelet and $253,800. He was the last player standing in the tournament which saw a $940,000 prize pool from 188 entrants, and perhaps he’ll make an appearance today.
It also wouldn’t be surprising to see reigning WSOP.com Player of the Year Mike “BrockLesnar” Holtz in the mix as he’s a regular on the platform and has had many successful results in the past. He finished in ninth place in the previous running of this event, won a WSOP circuit ring in November 2021, and may be looking to add a bracelet to his jewelry collection in this event.
Players will begin with 25,000 chips, blinds will begin at 50/100 with a 10 ante, and levels will increase every 20 minutes. Late registration is open for four hours and only one entry is permitted, as this is a freezeout event.
Stay tuned for updates of this event on PokerNews until a champion is crowned, along with updates of WSOP Online Bracelet Event #2: $500 No-Limit Hold'em BIG500, which is slated to begin at 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time.
