The World Series of Poker Circuit returns to Horseshoe Council Bluffs between September 6 - 17.
Las Vegas, Nevada. (September 4, 2023) - The 2022/23 World Series of Poker Circuit tour continues Wednesday with the fifth stop of the Circuit season. In total, 15 gold ring events will be held during 12 days of poker action at the Horseshoe Council Bluffs.
The schedule is similar to previous WSOP Circuits at Council Bluffs, with a few exceptions. One newcomer is Event #10: $400 Ring & Seats. The winner of this brand-new event will receive a gold ring, an entry to the 2024 Main Event in Las Vegas, and a seat to the Circuit Main Event that will have cards in the air the following day. The remaining prizepool will go towards Circuit Main Event Seats.
The marquee event of the series will get underway on Friday, September 15th. The $1,700 Main Event has two starting flights: September 15 and 16 at 11:00 AM. Wisconsin's Josh Reichard took down the WSOP Circuit Main Event at Council Bluffs last September to earn the 16th gold ring of his career and will sit as the reigning champion until this year’s Main event concludes on September 18.
