I really think that this is a very good idea and i think that it will prove extremely popular. This will see a load of entries and it will truly be a global event worthy of the name

I wonder if is capable of handling the kind of traffic this is sure to generate?

its would be nice payout for all players who will play some of this tournaments,but on other side its good buy in also!its not for all players!lot of players will try luck with satellites and who know,maybe some small player will have luck to win big amount!

I think this is a great idea ... many players can't come to the tournament for various reasons ... almost all people can play online .... so the idea of playing bracelets online seems to me very cool .... many will appear new people who won a bracelet for the first time

I personally think it is very interesting to play tournament in virtual room on computer and then get real bracelet if you win the tournament. of course cheapest tournament buyin is 400 dollars and not so small, but maybe try my luck of some cheap and good satellite is on good time to me

They took this fashion with gold bracelets in live tournaments and infiltrated it in online poker. It's a beautiful idea and this thing must to continue, at least for important games. Those who dreamed to winning a gold bracelet, but who did not play live, now they have the chance to win via the internet.

every year we have some different offer for any tournament,especially for WSOP,but this is something that is not so good for me!we all know how you can earn your bracelet and that is only at live tournament at las vegas,but now they give this kind of things for online players!
 pajalnick23/02/2019 18:00:23 GMT
as I noticed last year there were a lot of new bracelet holders .... And this year Judging because in online tournaments bracelets will be available there will be even more new bracelet holders ... It seems to me that the bracelet has depreciated relative to previous years ... maybe I'm wrong of course ... maybe

That is a nice number of online tournaments.
The buy ins, are not "suitable" for many, but they have given away almost
3k tickets for the events via satellites, which is a great number.
The lucky ones can walk away with a small fortune in the main events Smile

This kind of tournament is awaited by many players, but what i do not understand it's the fact that these poker rooms have few satellites for these games with a high buy. If they would make more satellites with reasonable buy in it's nice like after 3-4 qualifying sessions to win a entry into a major tournament. Smile

Hey it's their fiftieth anniversary, yet what I am seeing that both online and offline we get almost the same amount of tournaments like we used to do. They could have done or plan something special, kinda dissapointed they did not.
