What cities will be covered?

All the biggest cities in America will be hit with poker-fever as the circuit winds through the country, but there are also a couple of surprises on the schedule, and some might even get a second chance to see the action up close.

Like California, which just wrapped up a circuit stop at The Bicycle Casino on December 15th, but if you missed it don’t worry. Just keep a calendar space open between Jan 13th and 24th for the stop at the Thunder Valley Casino.

North Carolina will also make two stops, one in February (17th-28th) and again in April (7th – 18th), both in the Harrah’s Cherokee casino. Anyone near Mississippi that can’t get to the Horseshoe Tunica venue between the 20th and 31st of January can return to visit between April 21st and May 2nd.

And in between the WSOP will hit Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and – for the first time ever – Florida. Florida fans can head to the Isle of Pompano casino on Pompano Beach between Feb 3rd and 14th for all the poker fun.

Canadian and Caribbean poker fans will be happy to find out that they won’t miss out on the fun either. The biggest event in poker will now reach the Deerfoot Inn and Casino in Calgary, Alberta, between Jan 12th and 23rd and the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort and Casino throughout December 9th and the 19th.

If online poker is more your thing, check out the WSOP Winter Online Circuit schedule at https://ggpoker.co.uk, where less experienced players can pit their wits against seasoned players.

What events will occur?

Each one of the WSOP Circuit cities will get to enjoy a main event that will last four days, which will begin on the second Friday of the tournament.

Amongst the usual high rollers and no-limit hold’em games you are expecting will be Seniors and Ladies events to make sure that everyone can get involved and add an extra bit of spice to the games. The winners of these events will then get to compete in the Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas.

The prestigious $1 million freeroll will also return, with a new qualification to keep players on their toes. It has been rejigged alongside every event in the WSOP circuit to become a pathway to the much-coveted WSOP gold bracelet. If you win yourself an official gold ring, you too will be invited to the Tournament of Champions.

New Orleans’ chance to shine

The closure of the circuit is always the biggest event, and Louisiana doesn’t look set to let us down with the events of the last city on the WSOP circuit.

The Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel will quickly be filled with poker fans and professionals alike at the kickoff of May 5th, all the way until the closure on May 16th when the WSOP Circuit will hibernate until the next tour.

There is no set schedule for the New Orleans stop yet, but if it’s anything like the first confirmed event schedule, the Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina, it will include around a dozen events including No-Limit Hold’ems and pot-limit games with a variety of buy-in prices, plus the highlight of the tour: the main event.
