NEXT ON THE CIRCUIT: HORSESHOE TUNICA

The 12-day Horseshoe Tunica series starts Thursday.

TUNICA, Mississippi (January 15, 2018) – The World Series of Poker Circuit is headed to Tunica, Mississippi Thursday for the 15th stop of the 2017-2018 season. The 12-day series will be hosted by Horseshoe Tunica Hotel & Casino and feature 12 gold ring events, including a $1,675 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event.

Tunica has been a mainstay on the tour and has been on the schedule at least once every year since the second season of the Circuit. The Circuit has been hosted by three different properties in Tunica since 2005, but has now found a home at the Horseshoe. The Horseshoe has been host since 2015.

The 12-day series features a variety of no-limit hold’em events, including a six-handed event, a monster stack event, two seniors events and a ladies event. The schedule also features a pot-limit omaha tournament on the opening day of the series. The series will wrap up with a $1,675 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event. Last year’s Main Event winner was Neil Patel. Patel defeated a 610-player field to earn his first WSOP Circuit gold ring and the top prize of $192,152. Patel also earned a free seat to the 2017 Global Casino Championship for his victory.

Every stop on tour awards two free seats to the 2018 Global Casino Championship. One seat goes to the winner of the Main Event and the other is awarded the Casino Champion. The Casino Champion is the player who accumulates the most points over the course of the series. Players earn points for every tournament they cash in. More information on the point system can be found here.
