Players lucky enough to live in Pennsylvania, Michigan, New Jersey, and Nevada will have one last series of events to win both a World Series of Poker Circuit ring and a seat into the $1 million Tournament of Champions on May 30.
Last year was the first time the WSOP brought all the winners of it signature events together in a Tournament of Champions. But in 2022, the event took place at the end of the WSOP. That tournament featured 507 WSOP bracelet and Circuit ring winners of the 2021-22. Benjamin Kaupp, who got into the free roll by winning a $215 Circuit ring online in Pennsylvania last February, won it for $250,000.
Moving forward, it will kick-off the WSOP. Next year’s 2023 bracelet winners will play in the 2024 Tournament of Champions, if the WSOP chooses to continue the promotion.
The schedule is filled with its usual spread of mid-stake buy-in events. It kicked-off last night with its only PLO event, and will run until May 21 is all three markets.
Taking a guess, this will most likely be the last WSOP.com Circuit series in Michigan before its players are merged with players in the New Jersey/Nevada market.
