Let’s not forget that that WSOP Circuit is a special series of off-site tournaments organized by Harrah’s Entertainment, Inc. This began after this company bought out the WSOP in 2004. The tournaments included in this series are mostly dedicated to a single poker type – No-Limit Texas Hold’em. The winners of these tournaments are awarded not with the traditional gold bracelet, but rather with a unique ring, which has already become a very prestigious award in poker world. This is quite a prestigious tournament series, which many serious poker professionals enjoy participating in. Among other things, prizes include tickets to major tournaments, right up to the Main Event of the WSOP Mother Tour Series, which takes place every year at the Rio Casino. Every tournament is broadcast by ESPN, a media partner of WSOP.
According to the next season’s schedule, the first three stops of the WSOPC 2018/19 are going to be held at the Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas. Starting from November 14, until November 27, the poker tournaments are going to be hosted in this luxurious hotel. Thirteen of fourteen poker events will be dedicated to No Limit Hold’em; while the only Pot Limit Omaha tournament is scheduled for the twentieth of November being the sixth meeting of the established poker stars.
At Planet Hollywood poker players will have a chance to compete for the most important and valuable reward in poker – the WSOP ring.
