by | Published: Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

The World Series of Poker has expanded its National Circuit Tour adding four new events including, for the first time, one outside the United States.

The 2012-2013 World Series of Poker Circuit will feature a record 20 stops with events added in: River Rock Casino in Vancouver, Canada; Horse Shoe Casino in Cleveland; Foxwood Resort Casino in Connecticut and Harrah’s Cherokee in Cherokee, North Carolina.

Each stop on the circuit will contain 12 tournaments held over 12 days and conclude with a three day $1,675 buy-in Main Event Championship.

The season will conclude with a National Championship held at Harrah’s New Orleans in which only the top 100 players from the Circuit Tour will qualify.

World Series of Poker Executive Director Ty Stewart was very positive about the future of the National Circuit Tour.

“We’re coming off the best year of participation in the history of the WSOP Circuit and the addition of these new markets really brings our vision to life,” said Ty Stewart in a press release. “We want to have the #1 regional tour to go alongside the number one super event in poker.  We believe we have the best offering in terms of value and ROI at these stakes and the most exciting championship format,” added Stewart.

The season will commence at IP Casino Resort in Biloxi, Mississippi on the 7th of August. You can follow all World Series of Poker news and results here on Poker.com.
