Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto to host Toronto's first WSOP Circuit event

27 Feb 2024

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Great Canadian Entertainment, Canada’s leader in gaming and hospitality, is pleased to announce that World Series of Poker, the richest, most prestigious, and longest-running poker series, is heading to Toronto for the first WSOP Circuit hosted at Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto at Woodbine Racetrack. The WSOP Circuit, in cooperation with GGPoker, will take place from 22 March – 1 April 2024.

Featuring eight Circuit Ring events in total, the WSOP Circuit at Great Canadian Toronto will be headlined by a total of $3.9 million in estimated prize pools, including a $2,000 Main Event, with a $2.1 million total prize pool, and $3,500 High Roller event, with more than a $850,000 prize pool. The new WSOP Circuit at Great Canadian Toronto builds on the momentum generated by the record-breaking 54th annual WSOP, which took place last summer.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with GGPoker to bring the World Series of Poker to Toronto for the first time. This is a fitting milestone that will create further momentum for our recently opened 30-table poker room at Great Canadian Toronto, Canada’s newest and largest casino resort,” stated Robert Katsavelos, General Manager, Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto. “We are excited to welcome tournament participants from across the North American poker community and from right here in the City of Toronto and are certain that this event is going to be a huge success,” Katsavelos added.

GGPoker, which sent 774 players to the Main Event at last summer’s WSOP, will be exclusively operating the online qualifying tournaments and will be hosting Brand Ambassadors at the WSOP Circuit at Great Canadian Toronto, including local poker hero Daniel Negreanu.

“I have been playing WSOP events around the world for over 25 years,” said Daniel Negreanu, GGPoker Global Brand Ambassador. “There is something quite special about being able to finally compete in one in my hometown.”

The full schedule of events at WSOP Circuit at Great Canadian Toronto will be announced soon, noting that both Great Canadian Toronto and WSOP reserve the right to cancel, change or modify the tournament or any tournament event, in part or in whole, without notice.
