The World Series of Poker Online Circuit series will have a version of its own in Pennsylvania to start the New Year. The Online Circuit Series runs from Jan. 5-16.
$500,000 will be up for grabs along with 12 championship WSOP rings. Players physically located in the Keystone State will be eligible to compete in these events at WSOP.com PA. And that goes for New Jersey residents as well.
“I would love to win a ring, so I am planning on heading to PA to play in a couple of these,” says Brandon Foster, a poker player from New Jersey. “ I am right over the bridge so I can stay at my friend’s house and jump in the tournaments from there.”
