WSOP Circuit sets sights on Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort

The World Series of Poker Circuit concludes its 13th season at Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee, North Carolina this August with the 2017 Global Casino Championship. The three-day tournament is scheduled for 8-10 August 2017. This will be the third consecutive year Harrah's Cherokee will play host to the prestigious season-ending event. The tournament will feature a minimum $1 million guaranteed prize pool and award the winner a WSOP gold bracelet.

Following last year's model, the Global Casino Championship will be packed into the middle of the start of next season's first Circuit series. The 2017/2018 WSOP Circuit season kicks-off at Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort Wednesday, 2 August and will run through Wednesday, 16 August. The series will feature 12 gold ring events, including a $1,675 Main Event, in addition to the 2017 Global Casino Championship.

This year's Global Casino Championship (previously known as the National Championship) includes up to 122 automatic qualifiers. Of the potential 122 automatic qualifiers, up to 94 players will have qualified on the domestic tour and up to 28 on the International tour. The WSOP International Circuit is as big as it has ever been, featuring 14 WSOP Circuit stops on international soil this season.

For both the domestic and International WSOP Circuit, the Main Event winner at each stop of the 2016-2017 season receives a free entry, as does the Casino Champion at each stop. In addition, the top 50 season-long point earners on the domestic WSOP Circuit earn an automatic entry. Last season, the bubble for earning a season-long automatic entry was 125 points. It is expected to be higher this season since there are three more stops on the domestic Circuit than last season.

The standings of the season-long point's race can be found on the Circuit leader board.

All players who have earned an automatic entry will receive a $500 travel stipend and three nights at Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort, plus one additional night for anyone making the final table or for international participants.

The top 100 players in the GPI/WSOP Player of the Year rankings from 2016 also have the opportunity to buy into the Global Casino Championship directly for $10,000. The rankings are compiled based on players' performance in WSOP gold bracelet events in 2016.
