26 Nov

Uruguay is the place to be this December when the partypoker-sponsored WSOP-Circuit descends on Punta del Este for a festive showdown, a packed South American schedule of 18 events lined up for the highly anticipated series…

The showstopper will naturally be the Main Event, an $1100 buy-in NLHE tournament that many will be trying to satellite their way into, the third year in a row that Punta del Este will see the finest local players battling it out with inquisitive visitors to the iconic destination. 

Main Event

Beginning on December 6th, there will be three separate starting days for the Main Event, everyone trying to emulate Andre Sa’s run to the title last year – good for a whopping $144, 975 payday…

Side events

There is plenty to choose from outside of the series biggie, the list below a short selection of the best of the rest on offer at the sophisticated seaside resort in southeast Uruguay - an area often referred to as the St. Tropez of Uruguay.

  • $600 Double Stack
  • $3k High Roller
  • $330 Single Re-Entry
  • $400 Seniors Event
  • $200 Women’s Championship
  • $600 Turbo Knockout
