2016-17 WSOP Circuit Schedule Reveals No Canadian Stops Yet

WSOP Circuit

As the 47th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) in Las Vegas enters its dusk, the schedule for the 2016-17 WSOP Circuit has been released to keep poker players excited for what’s coming up when action comes to an end at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

The 13th season of the WSOP Circuit will be the largest yet and kicks off at Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina on August 4. The tentative schedule has 22 stops in the United States plus the season-ending WSOP Global Casino Championship. There are also six international stops lined up, but nothing yet for Canada.

The schedule is still subject to change and there are up to eight more international events expected to be announced later in the season.

The WSOP Circuit returned to Canada last season for a stop in Montreal in April. It was a Canadian return after a two-and-a-half-year absence from our nation. The announcement of that stop didn’t come until late in 2015 and specific details weren’t released until early 2016, so there is still a chance that the WSOP Circuit will return to Canada in the new season if it is announced later as it was last year.

The signature format of 12 rings in 12 days will remain. Most stops will begin on a Thursday and the four-day Main Event will usually begin on the second Friday. All 12 events award WSOP Circuit rings and each of the stops will take place across 12 days. Each stop will also feature $365 opening events and a $1,675 Main Event.
