CHOCTAW DURANT CIRCUIT RETURNS

Choctaw Durant Circuit series returns with 16 ring events and $1,900,000 in guarantees.

4 January 2022 (Durant, Okla.) -- After completing three series during the tail end of 2021, the World Series of Poker Circuit is ready to take on the new year. 2022 kicks off with the highly anticipated Choctaw Durant Circuit stop.

Two years have passed since the last Choctaw Circuit series ran and the southern Oklahoma Casino is returning in a big way. Over the course of the next two weeks, Choctaw Durant will hand out 16 gold rings, including three unofficial gold ring events, and boasts $1,900,000 in guarantees, stemming from those ring events.

Action begins tomorrow, January 5th, with a WSOP signature, the Monster Stack. Cards will be in the air at 12:00 pm for Event #1: $250 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack where players with begin with twice the normal starting stack.

Following the Monster Stack, will be the multi-flight, re-entry ring event, newly coined "The Gargantuan" at Choctaw Durant. The Gargantuan entails three separate starting flights, which will run Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, consecutively. There is also a $500,000 guaranteed prizepool for Event #2: $600 No-Limit Hold'em The Gargantuan.

The only other ring event featuring multiple starting flights, and an event bigger guarantee, is the $1,700 buy-in Main Event. During the last Choctaw Circuit, back in 2020, it was Dustin Schoonover who topped a field of 1,065 entrants in the Main Event to win $272,846 and his first WSOP gold ring.

Each of the 16 ring event winners at Choctaw Durant will earn a seat to the new, invitation-only “Tournament of Champions." The $1,000,000 freeroll event will be held during the 2022 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. 2022 online and live bracelet winners will also be eligible to compete in this marquee tournament.
