It is less than a month since WSOP.com launched in Pennsylvania and they have wasted no time in bringing some prestigious tournaments to the Keystone State. From August 8 through August 16, there are eight coveted gold WSOP bracelets waiting to be won by players who call Pennsylvania home.
The world-leading PokerNews Live Reporting team will be on the ground throughout the inaugural WSOP.com Pennsylvania festival, bringing you exclusive coverage from each and every one of the eight bracelet-awarding events.
PokerNews picks up the action at 5:30 p.m. EST on August 8 with Day 1C of the $500 NLH Keystone Kickoff. This $500 buy-in event should attract a bumper crowd to the WSOP.com PA tables not least because it is the first-ever time a WSOP bracelet will be awarded in the state of Pennsylvania.
There is then one bracelet event taking place almost every day at the same time of 5:30 p.m. EST until August 15, which is when the final day 1 of the $1,000 NLH PA Championship, essentially the festival’s Main Event, shuffles up and deals. The Main Event runs through August 16, and PokerNews will be with you every step of the way.
