The WSOP summer series may be over in Las Vegas, but Pennsylvania poker players will have a chance to get some gold. This past week, the World Series of Poker announced it will offer an official bracelet event on Oct. 15.
“I can’t wait for this tournament. I am glad we get a chance to win a bracelet here in Pennsylvania,” Philadelphia poker player, Pat Jankowski, told PlayPennsylvania.
For players residing in the Keystone State, they can compete for a gold bracelet from the comfort of their living rooms through the WSOP PA app. The event will follow a Mystery Bounty format.
WSOP offers $150,000 Mystery Bounty bracelet event for Pennsylvania poker players
The Pennsylvania online poker competition for this event will be a Mystery Bounty tournament. It costs $1,100 to buy-in and will come equipped with a $150,000 guaranteed prize pool. The event will also be presented in Michigan as well, but will be a separate player pool than the Pennsylvania tournament.
Mystery bounties are a fun new take on the traditional-style poker tournament. This recent trend offers players a chance to win big by eliminating opponents and receiving a mystery bonus.
Generally, the mystery bonus can sometimes be as big as final table payouts. The thrill of the unknown adds an extra layer of excitement to the game, as players eagerly await the moment they can open their envelopes and discover their rewards.
The Mystery Bounty will award various prizes to players knocked out once level 18 begins. The top bounty of the event will be $21,000. Additional bounties include two worth $9,000, and four others at $3,000.
Players will start the event with 30,000 in chips. They will be allowed three reentries for the first 270 minutes of play. The winner of the event will not only get the cash and a bracelet, but will win a WSOP Paradise Package.
