WSOP-C Brings $4m in Guarantees To Canada This August
The Playground Poker Club in Quebec, Canada will once again play host to the World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOP-C) which is set to take place on August 18 – September 2.
The latest edition features $4,000,000 in guaranteed prize pools, spread across seven events.
This year’s series will be among the most accessible WSOP-C events ever, with plenty of satellites to the Main Event, several online starting flights on partypoker, and a wide range of buy-ins for players. Winners will take home the much-coveted circuit ring, plus massive prizes.
The series kicks off with the $300 + $30 Colossus event, with a whopping $1 million guaranteed prize pool up for grabs. The event features a total of nine live starting flights, and four online Day 1s on partypoker. Players can take as many shots as they can as all of these flights feature allow for unlimited re-entries. Those who enter multiple Day 1s will be able to take the largest possible stack with them through to Day 2.
Among other events on the schedule are the $600 + $60 Monster Stack with $150,000 guaranteed, as well as Closer, PLO, High Roller and Super High Roller with prize pools ranging from $50,000 to $300,000.
Highly Anticipated Main Event
The main highlight of the WSOPC will be the highly anticipated $1,100 Main Event, offering massive value for players. The huge event is also set to introduce a new way for online players to take part. They can participate in an online flight for the Main Event that will combine Days 1 and 2. Qualifiers are guaranteed a minimum cash the moment they arrive at the Playground for the live battle. This is made possible through partypoker’s innovative approach.
Players should stay tuned to their partypoker client as the satellites to the combined online flight will run in the lead up to the event. The live starting flights begin with three Day 1s, featuring a single re-entry at any point in the flight.
Players will then move over into one of two Day 2 flights and they can re-enter once per flight during the first two levels of play. Those who are lucky enough to advance more than one qualifying stacks will be able to use the largest stack for Day 2.
Players can take part in six $110 + $10 unlimited re-entry satellites, giving them the opportunity to enter the Main Event at a cheaper price. A total of 170 Main Event seats can be won. For further information on the upcoming WSOP-C, check out the official website of the Playground Poker Club.
