On May 31, the return of the World Series of Poker International Circuit was announced. Today, we are happy to introduce the official WSOP-C Playground schedule, boasting $4,000,000 in total guarantees! From August 18 to September 2, the seven traditional Circuit Events return to Playground to award another seven WSOP Circuit rings, and this year’s edition presents some important changes.
The $1,100 Main Event will follow partypoker LIVE’s new concept for online flights, which is to combine Online Day 1 with an Online Day 2 in a single flight, allowing players to play all the way to the money, in one stride, before making the trip to the event venue. partypoker, as always, will keep an ear out for player feedback and adjust if needed, but so far, no one could see a downside to this new format. Click here for more details on the Online Day 1 & 2.
Also new this year, the number of live flights for the Main Event was reduced to three, making way on the schedule for two Day 2s. Registration to the event will remain open until 2:20PM on both Day 2s – two 60-minute levels plus the break. On Day 3, players from Day 2A, Day 2B, and Online Day 1 & 2 will merge and battle it out through Day 3 and Day 4 for the Main Event title, ring… and a big pile of cash!
Of course, the WSOP-C Playground comes with the other awesome tournaments that attracted such big crowds last year. The Colossus, we remember, gathered 3,503 entries in 2018, living up to its name. The Closer, the Monster Stack and the $2,200 High Roller also made a bang. This year, we believe, will be no different, because pairing Playground’s poker experience with the iconic WSOP brand is the ultimate home run, and we want you to run the bases! Check the schedule!
