WSOP announces 2012/2013 Circuit Series schedule

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jul 23, 2012 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

The World Series of Poker Circuit Series is entering its ninth season, and even though the tour looks far different than it did when it was first launched, with $5k and $10k Man Events built up around mini-WSOP tournament series, but the WSOPC is still one of the most recognizable brands in tournament poker.

On Monday the WSOPC revealed its much anticipated schedule for the upcoming season, which will see 20 stops (an all-time high) on the WSOPC tour, as well as the $1,000,000 National Championship tournament which will be part of the WSOP tournament series for the third straight year, and for the third straight year the event will be a full-fledged WSOP bracelet tournament.

One of the biggest coups by the WSOP was the addition of Foxwoods, which is the largest poker room on the East Coast. Foxwoods recently ended its 10-year run as a WPT sponsored poker room, and will now join the WSOPC.

The WSOPC has also changed the rake structure for the tournament series (which have buy-ins ranging from $375 to $1,675) after some complaints over last year’s structure, most notably the elimination of the #5 add-on for tournament staff.
