WSOP-C Finale Push Back

WSOP-C Finale Push Back

Tuesday, 12 March 2013

The World Series of Poker Circuit’s ninth season will now culminate on May 22nd according to a recent press release.

Originally scheduled to take place on May 21st, the season finale has been pushed back by a day to give each qualifier a chance to get to New Orleans.

Instead of starting the 21st, the WSOP will now put on a Welcome Party hosted by Southern Comfort 100 Proof. That date will also be used to handle pre-registrations ahead of the $1 million WSOP Circuit finale.

Indeed, this year the top 100 performing WSOP-C players will congregate in New Orleans and be joined by up to 100 other players in a race for the $1 million top prize. Currently leading the WSOP-C top 100 is Rex Clinkscales with 245 points, just ahead of Ari Engel who’s managed to cash 12 times ($114,221) this season and claim two titles.

Although predominately a series favoured by US players, two non-Americans (Nick Jivkov from Bulgaria and Nicolas Vaca-Rondon from Columbia) are currently in line for a place in the three day finale.
