The World Series of Poker Circuit returns to South Florida this week, but the scenery will be a bit different than usual. This time, players will have a new venue to explore.

Seminole Casino Coconut Creek is the new spot, set to play host to the Circuit for the first time.

“Coco” is a beautiful, villa-themed casino located north of Fort Lauderdale. It's owned and operated by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, who have exclusive rights to offer casino gambling in the state. The Coconut Creek property boasts more than 70 table games and 2,000 slot machines, along with a fine variety of food and drink options.

And a bustling poker scene. The Pavilion, Coco’s 10,000-square-foot entertainment venue, has plenty of space for the large crowds that the staff is anticipating throughout the series.

The 12-day WSOPC festival runs from Feb. 8-19, with 12 ring events and dozens more side events on the schedule. Buy-ins range from $365 up to $3,250, with satellites starting at just $65.

Here’s the schedule of ring events:

As is the case for all Circuit stops, two seats to the WSOP Global Casino Championship will also be awarded at Coco. One will go to the winner of the Main Event, while the other goes to the player who accumulates the most points — the Casino Champion.

All players who cash in ring events earn points that apply to both the venue and season-long points races.
