WSOPC Dallas

The World Series of Poker Circuit has added a Dallas-area stop to the tour.

The Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma – an hour north of Dallas, Texas - will host its first-ever WSOPC event from Jan. 6-25, 2011.

The 2010-11 WSOPC schedule now includes 13 official tour stops, with one more expected to be added.

Fresh off a $300 million expansion, the Choctaw Casino Resort WSOP Circuit event will feature 10 WSOP ring events and a total of 54 different events.

 “After visiting the property, it was a must that we brought a WSOP Circuit stop to Choctaw Casino Resort,” said WSOP Vice President Ty Stewart.  “This is a huge poker market that has clamored for high stakes tournament poker and we’re ecstatic to be hosting a WSOP Circuit in this gorgeous property in Durant come January.”

APPT Goes Down Under

On hold since a stop in Macau this past May, The PokerStars Asia Pacific Poker Tour is firing up again.

The tour is headed to Auckland, New Zealand, for a NZD $3,250 Main Event at the Sky City Casino Sep. 15-19.

Last season, 263 players entered the tournament with local Simon Watt banking the NZD $209,000 first-place prize.

This is the third stop on the APPT’s fourth season, already having been to Manila and Macau.
