2010-11 WSOP Circuit Cumulative Player Point System

Share this

WSOP Player of the Year format will be the basis for a national player point system, there are four ways to qualify and points vary by buy-in level.

•    The 2010-11 WSOP Circuit Event tour will use a Cumulative Player Point System to track player success in all official WSOP Circuit open gold ring events.

•    The point system is modeled after the WSOP Las Vegas Player of the Year format.

•    Players earn points at each WSOP Circuit stop in the United States.

•    You must cash in an event to earn points.

•    All buy-ins for official preliminary ring events (from $300-$1,000 buy-in) will awards points on a 0.5 times basis. (100 points x 0.5 = 50 points).

•    All buy-ins for official Main Event ($1,500 buy-in level) will award points on a 1.0 basis. (100 x 1.0 = 100 points).

•    All buy-ins for official Regional Championships ($10,000 buy-in level) will award points on a 5.0 basis. (100 x 5.0 = 500 points).

QUALIFICATION DETAILS

There are 4 different ways to qualify for the WSOP Circuit National Championship.  They are:

1.    Win the $1,500 Main Event at any WSOP Circuit event. (1 per stop; 12 players total)

2.    Be the “Casino Champion” accumulating the most points at any of the individual WSOP Circuit stops’ 10 official “ring” events. (1 per stop; 12 players total)

3.    Make the final table (9 players) at any of the four $10K buy-in “Regional Championships” [Horseshoe Hammond; Harrah’s Atlantic City; Harrah’s Rincon; Harrah’s New Orleans] (36 players total)

4.    Accumulate enough points between all the WSOP Circuit stops to be positioned in the Top 36 cumulative point standings at the end of the 2010-11 WSOP Circuit tour.*

*Note: There will likely be several duplicate names who automatically qualified.  Each player can only qualify once, therefore the duplicate names will be scrubbed and the next highest-point getters in the cumulative point rankings will qualify.
