WSOP Circuit Events History

If you haven’t ever heard about these tournaments, we will tell you what’s what. WSOP Circuit events is a special series of field tournaments organized by Harrah’s Entertainment, Inc. This company bought out all the rights to own the WSOP in 2004, and since then, they have arranged everything that concerns this series. All these tournaments are dedicated to one kind of poker game only: no-limit Texas Hold’em. The winners are not awarded with the traditional gold WSOP bracelets here. They receive the rings that have already become a very prestigious award in the poker world. This is a fairly prestigious series of tournaments, where stars and true poker professionals compete. Some of the prize positions in these tournaments can provide winners with an opportunity to participate in major events. Even the main event of the WSOP parent series can be achieved. It takes place every year in the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. ESPN, which is a media partner of the WSOP, broadcasts all the tournaments.

This additional series of tournaments dates back to 2005, when Harrah’s announced plans to host all the events of the main series of WSOP in various casinos. However, over time this intention has changed, and the traditional series has settled in a new home – Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. Instead, this new series of WSOP Circuit tournaments was created. It is a sub-brand of an already established series started in order to raise the Harrah’s popularity and prestige.

WSOP Circuit Reward

Initially, the plan was to reward the champions of this series with a traditional award – a gold bracelet. This decision, however, was soon changed. The champions of this series began to receive the WSOP Circuit gold rings. It became very prestigious among those who prefer to play poker at a professional level.
