This past Friday marked the beginning of the World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOP-C) stop at the Enjoy Resort & Casino of this magnificent Uruguayan coastal resort. The festival, which will span through Saturday, December 10, will feature a guaranteed prize pool of $300,000 for its Main Event and an initial prize pool of $1,000,000 for the Millionaire Grand Final, the season’s most prestigious event.
After three years without this privilege, Uruguay welcomes the world’s poker elite.
The Enjoy Resort & Casino, situated in the lovely Uruguayan resort of Punta del Este, will host a stop of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) circuit beginning this Friday, for the first time since days before the Covid-19 outbreak (2019). The Main Event of the event, which will run through Sunday, December 10, will have a guaranteed prize pool of $300,000. However, this will not be the event with the largest beginning prize pool in the series sponsored by GGPoker, since the competition grid of the meeting will also include the return of the Millionaire Grand Final, an iconic tournament of this room that will give a prize pool of at least $1,000,000 USD.
Other outstanding parallel competitions in this charra stop of the World Series will be the Second Chance tournament, the High Roller, a tournament with payments by elimination (Knockout Bounty), and, as a great novelty, a contest with surprise prizes for the moves in which an opponent is forced to withdraw from the table (Mystery Bounty), a format that has been one of the most popular in recent international tournaments.
After the illustrious success of the season that ran on this same circuit in the big Brazilian city of Sao Paulo in October, it is anticipated that this amazing event at Enjoy will also attract a large number of spectators. To this end, GGPoker conducted hundreds of online satellites that awarded seats to the festival’s main event, as well as allowing players to register for the series’ other events using their platform balance.
With the establishment of the Seniors event, the first festival champion will be determined on the opening day. It will also mark the debut of the Knockout Bounty, which features a buy-in of US$660 and an enticing payout of US$300 for each knockout accomplished by any competitor. The PokerNews media crew is already there at the Enjoy and is prepared to provide via our media the most important happenings from each event of this WSOPC stop.
