LAS VEGAS (Jun. 29, 2022) – The World Series of Poker® is thrilled to announce the return of the WSOP Circuit (WSOP-C). The popular regional poker tour will return for its 18th season on Wednesday, Jul. 20 at Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, OK immediately following the conclusion of the 2022 World Series of Poker tournament in Las Vegas. Twenty-five stops have been scheduled to date, with 10 additional stops to be announced in the coming weeks on WSOP.com
The prestigious $1 million freeroll will return featuring a similar format as the 2021-22 season. Beginning with the Choctaw Circuit Event, any official gold ring winners from either the live or online circuit events through May 2023, will qualify for the invitation-only “Tournament of Champions” event during the 2023 World Series of Poker tournament in Las Vegas.
“The World Series of Poker is back with the Circuit returning in just short of a month,” said Senior Vice President and Executive Director of the World Series of Poker, Ty Stewart. “With record breaking attendance so far this summer, we expect a huge response to the full-scale return of our regional mid stakes tour.”
While many venues will be familiar during the 2022-23 season, there will be one new stop at the Grand Victoria Casino in Chicago, Illinois along with the return of two heritage stops:
Harrah’s Cherokee will be WSOP-C’s second stop beginning on Thursday, Aug. 4 with the tour continuing virtually non-stop until the season-culminating stop at Caesars Southern Indiana on Thursday, May 11 – 22. 2023
To qualify for the WSOP Challenge players will have to be in the top 24 in points on the Jack's Wild Poker leaderboard with a minimum of 60 games played.
The winner will receive a seat for the WSOP $1,000,000 main event.
The WSOP Challenge will be hold on April 8th 2023.
Jack's Wild Poker reserves the right to change any and all prizes and tournaments based on participation of players and venues.
