WSOP Global Casino Championship heads for Harrah's Cherokee Casino

The World Series of Poker Circuit concludes its 14th season at Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee, North Carolina, this August with the 2018 Global Casino Championship.

The three-day tournament is scheduled for 7-9 August 2018. This will be the fourth 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.

The Global Casino Championship (previously known as the National Championship) is set to take place in the middle of the Harrah's Cherokee August Circuit series, which officially kicks off the 2018-19 WSOP Circuit season. The series is scheduled to start Thursday, 2 August and run through Monday, 13 August. The series will feature a $1,675 Main Event and a High Roller tournament.

The Global Casino Championship is the culminating event to the 2017-2018 Circuit season. It will include up to 128 automatic qualifiers. Of the potential 128 automatic qualifiers, up to 102 players will have qualified on the domestic tour and up to 26 on the International tour.

"Harrah's Cherokee is excited to continue to be a part of this summer tradition," said Regional Vice President and General Manager Brooks Robinson. "The Global Casino Championship is a truly special event for us to welcome players from around the country as well as from around the world!"

For both the domestic and International WSOP Circuit, the Main Event winner at each stop of the 2017-2018 season receives a free entry, as does the Casino Champion at each stop. In addition, the top 50 players on the seasonlong leader board for the domestic WSOP Circuit earn an automatic entry. Last season, the bubble for earning a season-long automatic entry was 147.5 points. It is expected to be higher this season since there are four more stops on the domestic Circuit than last season.

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