The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has released the schedule for the 14th WSOP Circuit season, a season which consists of a record 26 stops. The first stop is at Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina this summer, August 2nd through August 14th. The season culminates with the Global Casino Championship, featuring a $1 million or more prize pool, late next spring.

Three venues will make their debut in the coming season: Thunder Valley Casino (Sacramento) twice, September 14th, 2017 through September 25th, 2017 and January 11th, 2018 through January 22nd, 2018, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (Hollywood, Florida) September 21st, 2017 through October 2nd, 2017, and Seminole Casino Coconut Creek (Florida), February 8th, 2018 through February 19th, 2018.

As usual, there will be twelve ring events at each stop with buy-ins starting at $365. The Main Event at each stop will cost $1,675.

Players will qualify for the Global Casino Championship by winning a stop’s Main Event, earning the most tournament points at a stop in the twelve ring events, or by finishing in the top 50 points earners across the entire season out of those who did not qualify one of the first two ways. Those who qualify in one of these three ways will get to enter the Global Championship for free. Players who win a ring event and don’t qualify otherwise can buy-in for $10,000, as can players who finished in the top 100 in the 2017 WSOP Player of the Year standings.

“We are very proud of what the WSOP Circuit has become and how it has performed for our partner casinos who have come aboard,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart in a press release. “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 free-roll with a WSOP gold bracelet up for grabs.”
