The ninth season of the World Series of Poker Circuit presented by Southern Comfort 100 Proof begins Thursday, August 9th. This season starts in Biloxy, Mississippi at the IP Casino Resort and Spa, travel through a record 20 locations across America, and concludes with the National Championship on May 23, 2013 at Harrah’s New Orleans.
Although not as big or glamorous as the main World Series of Poker that leads to the Final Nine and takes place in just one venue — The Rio in Vegas — the WSOP Circuit Series still offers poker grinders a chance at honing their skills at the poker tables. It also awards the winner a gold bracelet, a prize purse of $1,000,000.00 and the title of National Champion. Plus, it’s a good bet that the winner ends up at the 2013 WSOP to compete against all other poker grinders from around the world for the ultimate title of “World Champion.”
