Much attention is drawn to the World Series of Poker right now as the biggest poker festival on the planet reaches boiling point, but that doesn't mean there aren't some incredible opportunities to be had online.
Some players argue that playing online during the WSOP is more +EV as the elite players are likely to be in 'Sin City' in a bid to make a name for themselves, underline their already strong reputation or grab one of the coveted bracelets.
Many of the online poker rooms benefit from the attention the WSOP brings to the online game. As the general media pick up on the results and the fortunes won (and lost), the enthusiastic, recreational players find themselves drawn to the online rooms. That fact alone makes for some very juicy and loose games right now.
Pokerstars would seem the obvious choice for RoW players, given their strong brand recognition, highest stakes and vast number of games and players.
PokerStars are running satellites to the Aussies Millions through mid July, with tournament fever in full swing there should be more fish online during WSOP looking to qualify for a major event.

If you're an experienced player then try to think about when you first started out. You were probably influenced by what you saw on TV or on YouTube. Perhaps a friend shared a video clip with you on social media?
What is almost certain is that you saw No Limit Holdem. Although other games such as Omaha and Stud have improved in popularity in recent years, the game which still draws in the crowds is Holdem.
While the fish are hopping into the Holdem ponds that is where you should concentrate your game, but be aware that you mid-high stakes players may have to move down a notch or two to take advantage of these lucrative waters. New players can be cautious with their stakes, if not their play. You'll find them from NL25 to NL200.
There are other games which attract the uninitiated after viewing the WSOP on TV. Once a championship event is aired many new players fire up their computers or tablets and jump straight into an unfamiliar game.
Keep a close eye on the WSOP TV schedule. After an Omaha championship event is aired then expect the PLO waters to be over flowing with new players, wondering why they've got four cards instead of two!?
Hop aboard whilst the WSOP is underway. This is one of the best times of the year for you to crank things up and play online heavily.
