Welcome to the first WSOP.com online bracelet event of the 2023 World Series of Poker. The action kicks off at 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time with Online Bracelet Event #1: $333 No-Limit Hold'em Triple Treys Summer Tip Off.
A total of 20 online bracelets will be won by WSOP.com players in Nevada and New Jersey between June 1 and July 16 in addition to the 95 live event bracelets that will be awarded at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas. Players in Pennsylvania and Michigan will also have seven online bracelet events.
In addition to being the first event of the online schedule, this tournament also has the smallest buy-in of the entire online series. There were no events at this buy-in amount last year. In 2021, Michael "njnj17" Leib took down $81,644.94 and a coveted gold bracelet by finishing first in Event #10: $333 No-Limit Hold'em.
Players begin with 15,000 chips and will play 15-minute levels starting with blinds at 25/50 with no ante. Three rebuys are allowed, and late registration will last until 8 p.m. Pacific Time. There will be a 5-minute break at 55 minutes past each hour.
