For the first time ever, the World Series of Poker will host an event in Argentina.
Further expanding the cooperation between the WSOP and 888poker, the Casino Iguazu has been picked as the next new host casino for the WSOP Circuit.
The Iguazu Falls are located on the border between Argentina and Brazil and the most spectacular part of it is known as the “Devil’s Throat."
It’s going to be the most spectacular setting for a WSOP Circuit event and six championship rings will be awarded.
$1k Main Event + Side Events
The schedule is now in the making but what’s already known for sure is that there will be six Championship rings to win.
The famed Crazy Eights side event will make an appearance and the highlight of the week will once more be the $1,000 Main Event.
While the lineup itself will be enticing, the area in which the series will take place is truly breath-taking.
“Iguazu Casino provides a spectacular location for the first ever WSOP Circuit Event in Argentina," said Fernando Bianchi, Marketing Director at the Casino Iguazu.
"Located just minutes away from the Iguazu falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the famous casino will be organizing the event along with 888poker.”
“With a tropical environment where visitors are welcomed with warm temperatures throughout the year, Casino Iguazu has been one of the most well-known entertainment centres in South America for more than twenty years.”
“Widely acknowledged as one of the leaders of amusement and sophistication at an international level, the luxury facilities are already in motion to welcome players who will battle for this chapter of the most important Poker Series of the planet.”
The 5-Star Grand Resort and Spa is just 15 min away from Iguazu Falls and can be reached through two airports on the Argentinian and the Brazilian sides.
