WSOP Circuit series returns to IP Biloxi, on Mississippi's Gulf Coast

December 4, 2018 (Biloxi, MS) - The World Series of Poker Circuit returns on Thursday to Mississippi's Gulf Coast and the IP Casino Resort Spa.

Included among the stop's packed 12 days are a $400 buy-in, multi-flight event with a $150,000 guarantee, a $400 Monster Stack event, and the Circuit IP Biloxi $1,700 main event with its own $400,000 prizepool guarantee.

The first of the stop's 13 official ring events begins at 11 am on Thursday, in the turbo-paced "Double Stack" Event #1 Next up, and dominating the stop's first weekend, is Event #2, $400 No-Limit Hold'em. Event #2 offers three separate starting flights (two on Friday, one on Saturday), and offers a $150,000 guaranteed prize pool; action in this major preliminary event ends on Sunday.

The popular $400 Monster Stack tourney, Event #8, begins at 11 am on Wednesday, December 12 and offers a $75,000 guaranteed prizepool. And dominating the second weekend of the IP Biloxi stop is Event #10, the $1,700 Main Event, which has separate starting flights on Friday, December 14 and Saturday, December 15. Last year, Bartlett, TN's Kyle Cartright topped a 343-player field to win his seventh career Circuit ring, along with $118,332.

Two additional rings will be awarded in a pair of Seniors events that round out the Circuit IP Biloxi slate.

All that action serves to frame the WSOP Circuit Thunder Valley main event; Event #11, $1,700 No-Limit Hold'em, offers two separate starting flights. Flight 11A starts at noon on Friday, September 14, while Flight 11B begins at noon on Saturday, September 15.
