The World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) is fresh off winning the award for the best poker tour in the U.S. and continues to grow with the recently released schedule for its 14th season with a record 26 tour stops in 2017-18. All stops and events of the schedule are connected by a point system tied to the WSOP gold-bracelet awarding and the Global Casino Championship, which has a $1,000,000+ prize pool.
The calendar that was released this week revealed that the circuit will officially kick-off on August 2 with WSOPC Harrah’s Cherokee in western North Carolina and is slated to run non-stop until the season-ending stop at Harrah’s New Orleans that begins on May 10, 2018.
The schedule consists of three new stops this season with one venue hosting two events. The Thunder Valley Casino in Northern California near the Sacramento area will host the event twice first between September 14-25, 2017 and the next from January 11-22, 2018.
The third new stop will be at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Hollywood from September 21 - October 2, 2017.
The popular tour destination Choctaw Durant in Dallas/Oklahoma has added a second stop this season, with events now planned between November 2-13, 2017 and from January 4-15, 2018.
Harrah’s Cherokee will play host to three stops in August, November and the last stop in April.
Las Vegas too has three scheduled stops, two at Planet Hollywood on the Las Vegas Strip (November 9-20, 2017 & March 3-14, 2018) and one at the home of the WSOP i.e. the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino from February 15-26, 2018.
The International WSOP Circuit also has more than another dozen stops planned, with a future announcement of a finalized schedule expected to be released soon.
WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart stated that, “We are very proud of what the WSOP Circuit has become and how it has performed for our partner casinos who have come aboard. Players know they get a consistent structure and schedule at each stop, plus the opportunity to win big prizes as well as their seat into the million-dollar freeroll with a WSOP gold bracelet up for grabs.”
All stops will release their series’ schedules as they get closer and upon approval by the respective local regulatory bodies. However, two things are confirmed for every stop.
A. Each stop will offer a dozen official gold rings from events starting at the $365 buy-in.
B. Every stop will include a $1,675 Main Event.
Stewart also revealed that the season would once again culminate in the gold-bracelet-awarding Global Casino Championship, an event players must qualify for to take a shot at the $1 million added prize money.
