2020 WSOP International Circuit schedule solidified
 

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The WSOP International Circuit has confirmed seven additional stops for the 2020 portion of its schedule, including a new stop at the Casino Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain, and a return to Paris, France. The WSOP Circuit will be in central Paris, next to the famous Champs Elysees.

Additionally, four previous locations return including stops in Morocco, Czech Republic/Germany, St. Maarten and Cannes.

In all, the 2019-20 WSOP International Circuit will feature 16 different tournament stops this season.

Fresh off a very successful first-time foray into Mexico where the opening event attracted 1,511 entries and a $4.7 million-peso prize pool in Monterrey, the WSOP International Circuit enters a busy stretch with three stops starting on three different continents – tomorrow -- with a total of four stops scheduled over the next six weeks to conclude the 2019 portion of the season. Upcoming stops include:

- Holland Casino Rotterdam from 14 to 22 November

- Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino in Aruba from 14 to 24 November

- The Star - Sydney in Sydney, Australia from 14 November to 9 December

- Enjoy Punta del Este Resort & Casino in Uruguay from 6 to 14 December

“We continue to see great interest and feedback in our International Circuit series,” said WSOP Director Gregory Chochon, who leads the WSOP’s international efforts. “New markets have performed well and we’re continually searching for new locales to bring the WSOP experience to players in those regions.”

Like the U.S. domestic circuit, the International track features two qualifiers per stop for the WSOP Global Casino Championship. A Main Event winner and the Casino Champion each win automatic entry into the season-culminating event, in addition to the gold WSOP Circuit ring and prize money from that event. The International and U.S. tours collide in the season-culminating Global Casino Championship in August 2020 at Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort in North Carolina. There are no “at-large” qualifications on the International stops. The International portion is expected to contribute 32 qualifiers to the Global Casino Championship.

International stop players have two ways to qualify for the 2019-20 Global Casino Championship (1.) win a Circuit Main Event (2.) win a “Casino Championship,” which is defined as the player at each stop who accumulates the most points throughout the gold ring schedule at the international stop. Each of these players will receive a “free roll” seat into the culminating event and be combined with the U.S. Domestic circuit qualifiers, which includes 50 at large point qualifiers, plus the 70 qualifiers that garner a seat via automatic qualification methods.

The remaining schedule for the WSOP International Circuit is as follows:
