WSOP Circuit Schedule 2019-20 Released

2018 WSOP Schedule Announced

The WSOP Circuit released their new schedule for the 2019-20 season earlier this week.

The 16th season of the WSOP Circuit will include a record 35 events across the United States, including stops in six new venues. The season will once again conclude with the Global Casino Championship at Harrah’s Cherokee in August, 2020. The exact dates of the Global Casino Championship will be announced next year.

Not only are there six new venues on the schedule for the new season of the WSOP Circuit, there are also a couple rule changes. Starting in the 2019-20 season all WSOP Circuit tournaments will be played with the big blind ante format. This format was also added to this year’s World Series of Poker, so adding it to the Circuit as well should not be a surprise.

What changes are in WSOP Circuit Schedule 2019-20?

Also changing is the number of players that get paid in a tournament. Currently on the Circuit 10 per cent of the field in a tournament is in the money. Starting in the 2019-20 season that will increase to 15 per cent of the field.

“Changes in the past year were well received by both players and operators,” WSOP Vice President Jack Effel said in a release. “This year, we complete our enhancements with Big Blind Ante becoming standard throughout all our events and stops, plus the decision to give 50% more players a portion of the prize pool.”

The new season begins on July 17 at the first stop for the Circuit, the Choctaw Durant in Oklahoma. A few other mainstays returning to the Circuit schedule include Thunder Valley Casino in California, Harvey Lake Tahoe in Nevada, The Bicycle Casino in California and the Horseshoe Tunica in Mississippi.
