Accompanying Raghavan to the 2020 Global Casino Championship was Casino Champion Brian McDaniel who took down Event #6: $400 Monster Stack and accumulated 75 casino points to secure his seat.

The winner of the Main Event and the Casino Champion will earn a seat to the 2020 Global Casino Championship. There they will compete for a minimum $1 million prizepool, as well as a coveted gold bracelet. To become the Casino Champion a player must earn the most points at a given Circuit stop.
