World Series of Poker Circuit to return to Palm Beach Kennel Club

3 February 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- For the seventh consecutive year, WSOP Circuit will call Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Room in West Palm Beach home from 9-20 February. PBKC also held WSOPC events 10-21 November 2016, making them one of only a few two-time stops on the circuit. There have been many poker pros who have played circuit events at PBKC including Jerry Yang, Greg Raymer, Lee Childs, Chad Brown, Harrison Gimbel, Josh Beckley and more.

"We're thrilled to be hosting the World Series of Poker Circuit event kicking off our season here at the Palm Beach Kennel Club. We look forward to seeing larger fields in all our events due to our favorable event dates," said Noah Carbone, Card Room Director. "The tournaments have brought people to PBKC from all over the country that hadn't experienced this facility before, and many were first-time visitors to beautiful Palm Beach County," he added.

PBKC was the first non-casino to earn the right to offer WSOP Circuit events and the only stop in the State of Florida beginning in February 2011. Players can also enjoy cash game promotions, live and simulcast racing in addition to the exciting poker games. From 2011 through November, 2016, PBKC has been one of the most successful WSOP Circuit stops. Altogether, 38,299 players have participated in the events and winnings have reached more than $19.3 million.

The 12 Rings in 12 Days begins with a $365 buy-in NL Hold'em Monster Stack on Thursday, 9 February and the fan favorite $365 NL Hold'em Re-Entry event 10-11 February. The $1,675 Main Event will be on Saturday, 18 February. Each WSOP Circuit stop Main Event winner will receive an automatic berth into the WSOP Circuit Global Casino Championship. Automatic bids will also go to the "Casino Champion" at each participating venue. A Casino Champion is defined as the player at each stop who accumulates the most points throughout the 12-event gold ring schedule.
