2 years ago ● Paul Seaton




Players heading to the WSOP Circuit Brazil 2018 later this year will get to play in an event of this most prestigious poker brand, now in one of the most iconic destinations in the world – Rio de Janeiro 


The beautiful and vibrant city was chosen to host the world cup of poker between 25th September and 2nd October, where players from Brazil and around the world can compete in a setting as unique and diverse as the tournament series they’re playing in.


"We always strive to bring to the Brazilian public a sensation that comes as close as possible to the WSOP Las Vegas, which this year goes to its 49th edition, which takes place at the Rio Resort, Rio de Janeiro's theme park. Again the WSOP Circuit Brazil has made its mark in the history of national poker," said André Feldman, Director of the WSOP Brazil.




The Main Event is confirmed as a R$4,000 buy-in, carrying a huge R$4,000,000 guarantee. The exact schedule and what is sure to be an impressive side event offering will be announced in the coming weeks.
