WSOP CIRCUIT RETURNS WEDNESDAY AT CHOCTAW CASINO

DURANT, Okla. (7 January 2016) –  The second half of the 2016/2017 World Series of Poker Circuit season will kick off on Wednesday at Choctaw Casino in Durant Oklahoma. Choctaw has historically been one of the largest stops on the tour. Just last year, Choctaw beat the previous year's history-making and record-breaking re-entry event. The $365 No-Limit Hold’em re-entry event boasted a total of 4,249 entries, exceeding the previous year's total by 196 entries. Circuit regular John Holley emerged as the champion taking home his fourth ring and $203,944. This year's Re-Entry (Event #2) boasts a $1 million guarantee and is sure to see huge numbers once again.  

Last year, Laos refugee Andy 'Doc' Philachack won the Main Event at this stop. He defeated a field of 1,565 payers to earn $393,188 and his second career Circuit ring.

The $365 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack event will kick off this stop, beginning at noon on Wednesday January 11th. Other notable events at this stop include a $365 Congress 5-card Omaha High/Low event, A $365 six max event, the $1 million guarantee Re-Entry event, and a $580 No-Limit Hold'em One Day event.
