World Series of Poker has announced the International Circuit for the 2020 portion of the poker tournament schedule. Seven additional stops have been added, with the series traveling to the Netherlands, Aruba, Australia and Uruguay. A new stop is on the schedule this time around, as the WSOPC heads to Casino Barcelona in Spain. In total, the WSOP International Circuit will include 16 different stops for the 2019-2020 season.
The WSOPC just finished a leg in Mexico, where a ton of poker action went down. The first event of the stop was successful, seeing 1,511 players competing. Just yesterday, the WSOP International Circuit kicked off three different stops in three different countries!
From November 14th until the 22nd, the Holland Casino in Rotterdam will play host to the WSOP. At the same time, the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino of Aruba will be offering gaming from the 14th until the 24th. The Star Sydney in Sydney, Australia also began a stop yesterday, offering poker tournament gaming until the 9th of December.
Starting on December 6th, the Enjoy Punta del Este Resort of Uruguay will be hosting the series through the 14th.
According to the WSOP…
Director Gregory Chochon stated: “We continue to see great interest and feedback in our International Circuit series. New markets have performed well and we-re continually searching for new locales to bring the WSOP experience to players in those regions.”
Global Casino Championship:
Just like the domestic circuit in the United States, the International Circuit will offer two qualifiers per stop for the WSOP Global Casino Championship. The winner of the Main Event of each stop and the Casino Champion automatically gain entry.
