Friday was Day 20, the last off-day for the 2020 World Championship of Online Poker. We call it an “off-day,” though there were nine side events that featured close to 20K entries and in which more than $300K was awarded.

We’re still stubbornly calling it “Day 20,” too, because, well, it was another day. Besides, we are on a roll now when it comes to counting things.

Speaking of counting, as we head into the final weekend of WCOOP and the upcoming Main Events, take a look below at some of the eye-popping totals produced by the series thus far. Scrolling all the way to the bottom earns you an added bonus… the Saturday schedule!
