The WSOP Tour announced the schedule for the 19th season of the World Series of Poker Circuit. Like other years, the 2023-24 Circuit will include 12 stops across the United States as well as some online and international venues. Currently, the schedule shows 25 confirmed stops, with the action that kicked off on July 19 set to continue well into May next year. Here is a look at the dates and venues and why Floridians will love this schedule.

Circuit Schedule

The previous Circuit season ended in May 2023, with Maurice Hawkins bagging a Circuit ring for a record-setting fifteenth time. The 2023-24 Circuit is the 19th installment of the series of events and will continue over a 10-month action-packed period. Kicking off on July 19 in Choctaw Durant, the Circuit has already been to Harrah’s Cherokee, North Carolina (August 3 to 14); Graton Casino, Northern California (August 10 to 21); Hard Rock, Tulsa (August 17 to 18); and recently Horseshoe Council Bluffs, Omaha/Iowa (September 7 to 18).

Circuit Events and Locations

Every stop of the Circuit will include at least 12 events with a WSOPC Gold Ring up for grabs. These will include the highly competitive $1,700 WSOPC Main Events. Like other years, buy-ins will start at $250, allowing more players, including novices, to compete in the events.

The WSOP has retained most of its famous locations. Many of the 25 stops already announced are stops WSOP fans and players are familiar with already. But, in addition to these, the Circuit will also stop at two new locations: Hammond, Indiana’s Horseshoe Hammond, and Rohnert Park, California’s Graton Casino. The Circuit will also visit some locations multiple times during the season.

Good News for Floridians

The Circuit will visit the Isle of Capri in Pompano Beach, Florida, between October 12 and 23 and again from February 1 to February 12, 2024. This is exciting news as the Sunshine State remains one of the most popular poker markets in the US, with over 400 active poker tables.

The WSOPC stopping in Florida is also good news for Floridians, who are accustomed to the brick-and-mortar poker presentation. The state does not currently have regulated online poker. In 2021, negotiations were underway on the Florida gaming compact, with legislators expected to pass new Florida online poker laws to legalize online poker in the state. These provisions were dropped, however.

While waiting for online pokter to be regulated in the state, residents can currently access countless offshore online providers legally servicing the area. Live poker is also a key part of entertainment in Florida, with the Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood being responsible for several of the largest World Poker Tour fields in history.

Floridian Poker Players Who Might Join the Action

And with the Circuit dropping by Florida twice, some of the biggest names in Florida live poker are expected to participate. Per the 2023 rankings, the top players in the state at the moment are Sean Winter ($23.6 million), Jason Mercier ($20.6 million), Sam Soverel ($20.2 million), and Michael Mizrachi ($17.4 million). Florida also boasts a rich crop of budding and novice players who should be quick to jump at the opportunity to win a WSOP Gold Ring.

Wrapping Up

The WSOP Circuit kicks off in late July every year, right before August’s $1,000,000 Global Casino Championship. Like other years, this season’s events are designed to allow amateur and recreational poker players a chance at international poker glory. The prices remain highly affordable, and the most popular locations are still in rotation. For Floridians, a chance to tussle for the Gold Ring will come twice, in October and February 2024.
