Online poker players, mark your calendar now for Sunday, August 30, so you don’t forget. To celebrate the last Sunday of the month, WSOP.com has just added a brand new tournament on that day only to its already packed lineup.
It’s the WSOP Last Sunday of August $200K Guaranteed Summer Sizzle!
What WSOP.com players love about Sundays
The 2020 WSOP Online Bracelet Tournaments for US players are over. But if you love online poker, it hardly matters. Surely you can find plenty of other reasons to play, and especially on WSOP.com, where the fun and excitement and opportunity to win big money never cease.
Sundays are always one of the most popular times to play not only because most of you have the day off from work, but also because of the standout tournament schedule.
For those with deep pockets, the highlight of the day is a $100K guaranteed tournament that gets underway at 6 p.m. But players who can’t afford the $320 price tag don’t have to sit on the sidelines. They can try to win their way in via freerolls and satellites or otherwise compete in a much less expensive tournament. No one who wants to play is shut out.
What’s different about this Last Sunday of the Month WSOP.com Summer Sizzle
On August 30, to celebrate the last Sunday of the month, WSOP.com will replace the 6 p.m. $100,000 guaranteed tournament with the Summer Sizzle. The buy-in is $320, just like it is for the $100,000 guaranteed tournaments on other Sundays. However, this time, the guaranteed prize pool will be doubled to $200,000!

The bottom line
$320 is a lot to pay for any poker tournament, but since it’s the same price as the regular weekly $100,000 GTD tournaments but with double the prize pool, you’re getting a great deal.
On the other hand, no tournament warrants risking more money than you can comfortably afford. So if paying $320 is not a viable option, but you have the time and the requisite poker skills, by all means, take advantage of the opportunities to possibly win your way in via freerolls and satellites.
See the WSOP.com for the schedule of qualifying games. Or if that doesn’t work out for you, maybe a low-cost guaranteed tournament will.
In short, if you already play on WSOP.com, as long as you can afford it, the Last Sunday of the Month Summer Sizzler is an event you definitely don’t want to miss.
Or, if you’re not yet registered with the site, what a great time this would be to join. On Sunday, you will have 200,000 reasons to play!
