Daniel Negreanu Delighted That the WSOP Circuit is Heading to Toronto

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) Circuit has visited dozens of fantastic cities during its time, but Toronto is not one of them. That is set to change on March 22 when the Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto hosts the WSOP Circuit Toronto festival.

The Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto has joined forces with online poker giant GGPoker to make the WSOP Circuit dream a reality for Torontonians. Although the schedule is yet to be announced, PokerNews is informed there will be eight WSOPC ring-awarding events, $3.9 million in estimated prize pools, including a $2,000 Main Event and a $3,500 High Roller.

Robert Katsavelos, the General Manager of Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto, is delighted to bring the WSOP Circuit to Toronto.

"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."

"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."

Eligible iGames conducted and managed by iGO are only available to those physically present in the Province of Ontario. GGPoker Ontario operates pursuant to an agreement with iGaming Ontario.

GGPoker To Run a Plethora of WSOP Circuit Toronto Satellites

Katsavelos is right in saying WSOP Circuit Toronto will be a huge success, not least because of the record-breaking 2024 WSOP in Las Vegas. Attendance records were smashed through the series, including the $10,000 Main Event that saw 10,043 entries.

GGPoker made a substantial contribution to the 2023 WSOP Main Event's figures thanks to sending 774 players to Las Vegas via its online satellites. As you would expect, GGPoker is running WSOP Toronto satellites, giving players of all bankroll and skill levels the opportunity to play for a coveted WSOP Circuit ring.

Canadian players on GGPoker's global platform will be able to enter WSOPC Toronto satellites, while Torontonians and other Ontarians can get in on the satellite action at GGPoker Ontario.

Daniel Negreanu Can't Wait to Play a WSOP Event in Toronto

Players heading to the inaugural WSOP Circuit Toronto will rub shoulders with some of GGPoker's ambassadors, including Daniel Negreanu, who grew up in Toronto.

"There is something special about being able to finally compete in one in my hometown."

"I have been playing WSOP events around the world for over 25 years," said Negreanu. "There is something special about being able to finally compete in one in my hometown."

Negreanu will be hoping to keep up his 100% record when he returns to Canadian soil. The six-time WSOP bracelet and one-time WSOPC ring winner is closing in on 500 live tournament cashes. However, only one of those in-the-money finishes was in Canada. Negreanu was one of 690 entrants in the $2,700 British Colombia Poker Championships in November 2008, and he was the last player standing. One cash, one victory; "Kid Poker" will be going all out to make it two from two.
