As you all know by now, the world of live poker was stopped, and at least for the foreseeable future interrupted, by the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore the World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOP Circuit), canceled their events.
Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the World Series of Poker said “We want to do right by our players and see the promised prize money put up for grabs. Our Online Circuit events have been huge successes to date and WSOP.com is a viable alternative for the last qualification spots and this year’s championship. We look forward to returning to Harrah’s Cherokee in 2021 but until then, the show must go on… online.”
Because the number of affected live events, the WSOP chose to hold a special “Season Finale” Online Circuit Event from June 3-14, which will award a guaranteed 13 spots into the GCC. A dozen of those spots will be awarded to the winners of each event, while the final spot will go to the “Casino Champ” of the WSOP.com series.
