WSOP Releases 2023-2024 Circuit Schedule


The 19th season of the WSOP® Circuit will commence with 25 scheduled stops, with additional dates to be announced

LAS VEGAS (Jun. 29, 2023) – The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is excited to announce the return of its WSOP Circuit (WSOP-C). The highly anticipated regional poker tour returns for its 19th season beginning Wednesday, July 19 at Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma immediately following the conclusion of the 2023 World Series of Poker tournament in Las Vegas. 25 stops have been scheduled to date, with additional dates to be announced later this July on

The highly coveted $1 million freeroll will return featuring a similar format as the 2022-23 season. Kicking off with the Choctaw Circuit Event, official WSOP gold ring winners from either the live or online circuit events through May 2024 will qualify for the invitation-only “Tournament of Champions” event during the 2024 World Series of Poker tournament at Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas. 

“We are on pace to make history with the largest WSOP of all time this year and have already hosted ten record-breaking events so far at the 2023 WSOP,” said Senior Vice President and Executive Director of the World Series of Poker, Ty Stewart. “As the excitement around the game of poker continues to grow exponentially, we expect this energy to roll into the WSOP Circuit the summer, setting some records along the way as well.”

While many venues will be familiar during the 2022-23 season, there will be one new stop at the Graton Casino in Rohnert Park, California, and another new stop at a Caesars Entertainment destination, Horseshoe Hammond, in Hammond, Indiana on Oct. 5-16, 2023.

Harrah’s Cherokee will be WSOP-C’s second stop beginning on Thursday, Aug. 3 with the tour continuing virtually nonstop until the season-culminating stop at Caesars Southern Indiana on Thursday, May 9-20, 2024.

Most WSOP-C stops will begin on Thursdays, with the four-day Main Events beginning on the second Friday of the tournament. Each stop is encouraged to add Seniors and Ladies events, where the winners will qualify to participate in the “Tournament of Champions” in Las Vegas. WSOP-C stops will feature standardized tournament structures and payouts, ensuring players traveling to multiple stops will be treated in a consistent manner at each event, barring any regulatory or local law differences. All stops will release their series’ event schedules upon approval by their local regulatory body, with the guarantee that every stop will offer at least a dozen official WSOP gold ring events starting at a $250 buy-in level and will include a $1,700 Main Event. WSOP Online Circuit events on WSOP.COM will be scheduled monthly.

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) Circuit Events are a series of poker tournaments hosted throughout the United States and throughout the world beginning in late July each year and culminating the following June with a $1,000,000 Tournament of Champions where the victor earns a WSOP gold bracelet as well.  WSOP U.S. Circuit Events are designed to give the recreational and amateur player an opportunity to participate in the WSOP experience at a more affordable price point and with less of a time commitment than the traditional WSOP in Las Vegas.  Each stop typically features 12 official events in 12 days, including a $1,700 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Main Event. Official WSOP Circuit events range in buy-in from $250-$5,300 and award a prestigious WSOP gold ring to each victor.  These poker tournaments are designed to reach a winner within two playing days, with some events even structured to complete in one day.  A season-ending WSOP Tournament of champions is held each summer. All ring winners from each stop gains automatic entry into the season-ending WSOP Tournament of Champions. Players who finish within the top 15 percent of the field are typically awarded prize money on an escalating scale until there is one player who has captured all the chips.  That victor wins the largest share of the prize pool, a WSOP Circuit gold ring and entry into into the Tournament of Champions. The WSOP Circuit Events are a regional and international offshoot of the longest-running, largest, richest and most prestigious gaming event in the world, dating back 53 years to 1970 – the famous World Series of Poker. This marks the 18th year the WSOP Circuit Events have been held.  They were initially established by Caesars Entertainment (then Harrah’s Entertainment) after its purchase of the WSOP brand in 2004 as a way to bring the WSOP experience to Caesars-owned properties throughout the U.S. In the inaugural season (2004-05), the WSOP Circuit featured five stops – Atlantic City, Lake Tahoe, Las Vegas, San Diego and New Orleans. Now, with 25 stops domestically, the WSOP Circuit visits 10 U.S. states and cumulatively features more entrants than the Las Vegas version of the WSOP.  Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Inc., (CIE) owns the WSOP and the WSOP Circuit Events.  Visit us at or
