And there are plenty more satellites scheduled ahead of the headline tournament beginning on Thursday December 8.
Fresh from the recent Sydney Championships in August that attracted more than 2,000 players and a total prize pool of more than $2.5 million, the WSOP Circuit Series has guaranteed prize pools in four events. The largest of the four is the main event where there’s a $1,000,000 guarantee.
