WSOP Circuit Already Back in Action in 2020

The World Series of Poker Circuit season started in the United States on July 17, 2019, the WSOP International Circuit kicked off in Russia just two days later.

The 2019-2020 season came together in April and May of 2019 when the first stops were announced, though the latter half of the international schedule came together more recently. Both, however, have been in action for many months.

As the second half of the season gets underway after the holidays, it provides a good opportunity to refresh and reiterate the remainder of the current season’s schedule.
