(pokernews.com)- The anticipation and waiting is finally over, as today, Wednesday, Sept. 16, the first-ever World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) events begin on at the Casino Campione in Campione d’Italia, an Italian exclave within the Swiss canton of Ticino.
The WSOPC Italy features nine exciting gold ring events from Sept. 16-30 as part of an action-packed schedule consisting of thirty-five different tournaments and ring games at a variety of stakes. The highlight of the poker festival is the WSOPC Italy €990 Main Event, which is sure to attract some of the top names in poker due to promises of a huge prize pool and a deep structure with one-hour blind levels. The Main Event kicks off on Sept. 24, with the first of its two opening flights as part of a seven-day tournament.

Buy-ins for the ring events should be suitable for both low-limit and high-limit players, ranging from €220 for the three-day €220 Super Bounty No-Limit Hold’em (Single Re-Entry) event all the way up to €2,200 for the four-day €2,200 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller. This is excluding the Poker Staff & Players Event, a ring event which kicks on Sept. 16 with a €125 buy-in.
The WSOP is understandably excited about gaining a foothold in Italy, and scheduled this poker festival just 10 days before the start of the next edition of the World Series of Poker Europe in Berlin, Germany. The timing is no coincidence, with Director of Events & Sponsorship at Caesars Interactive Entertainment Simone Ricci telling GiocoNews when the series was first announced that, “We hope to see some good numbers in Campione. The event will take place 10 days before the beginning of the WSOP Europe in Berlin, and this means that we will obviously run a number of satellites to the WSOPE event once in Campione.”
Ricci also hinted that a WSOPC stop in Italy may just be the beginning, with expansion potentially taking place in new locations all over the world, especially in Europe.
“Italy represents an important country for us, and right now, we are trying to finalize some deals with other European locations,” Ricci said.
