Author: Vargoso Published: 16.08.19

Although the US live poker market is the undisputed leader in tournaments (for example, it has almost 10x more profits than England which has the second position, $7,698,379,00 vs. $783,410,568 respectively), it's undeniable that poker is a worldwide trend, and grinders from almost any country are always actively looking for massive events to join. That is why the World Series of Poker created the WSOP International Circuit, and in this article, we'll share all the stops scheduled for 2019.
