The last Canadian to win the WSOP Main Event was Quebec’s Jonathan Duhamel in 2010.

WSOP 2024 Online Chances To Enter

There will again be online bracelet events for players, with chances to reach the Main Event. Last year, according to a news release, more than 450 players qualified for the $10,000 Main Event via tournaments.

“Last year, 774 players made the GGPoker Road to Vegas, cashing for over $5 Million in Main Event prizes,” Negreanu, a GGPoker Global Ambassador and six-time WSOP bracelet winner, told WSOP. “This summer, we aim to send 1,000 players to their WSOP dream.”

The World Series of Poker has established itself as the most famed event in the card-playing world, with a record of more than 10,000 entries joining in last year (during the event’s first decade in the 1970s, there were fewer than 100 entrants each year). In the 2023 Main Event, American Daniel Weinman won the title for the first time, raking in more than $12 million US in prize money.

When COVID-19 struck in 2020, shutting down countless events and affecting travel, the WSOP responded by changing its tournament format that year. One result was that online players could get more involved than ever. Play began online that year and online players have increasingly been able to participate since then.

Those who love poker at casino apps Ontario, and many other locales, suddenly saw their chances of playing against the best in the world open up more. The GGPoker app is a partner with the WSOP in Canada and now there are daily online bracelet satellite qualifier events on the WSOP schedule.
