$10,000 extra planned for Planet Hollywood leaderboard

Each month, WSOP.com is also running a $10,000 monthly leaderboard for each online series event. The top 10 circuit grinders each month win WSOP.com tournament tickets.

The winner also wins a seat into the year-end WSOP Online Circuit Championship with a $250,000 guarantee.

That tournament is set for Dec. 28 and rewards the champion with a WSOP gold bracelet. There are four ways to qualify for the championship:

  • Win a WSOP gold ring event during the 2021 season
  • Win a $10,000 Player of the Month leaderboard
  • Win a Second Chance Freeroll
  • Be one of the top 50 players on the cumulative circuit leaderboard

As of January, New Jersey regular Daniel Buzgon is the current king of the mountain with 88.84 points. “GLDUDE” sits in second with 70.46.

Freerolls continue with Planet Hollywood Circuit Series

Planet Hollywood players also have a chance at a $25,000 freeroll scheduled for March. 2. Players can qualify for the freeroll tournament by:

  • winning a gold ring event during the monthly series
  • Finish in the top 10 on the monthly leaderboard

On the same day, WSOP.com hosts a winner-take-all Second Chance Freeroll. The winner earns a seat in the Online Circuit Championship.

To be eligible for the freeroll, players must have played in at least three ring events in February.

 A look at some January winners

The January Online Super Circuit consisted of 18 events. “Super” Circuits generally include six extra ring events. 

A few regular online poker grinders took home some hardware in January including New Jersey’s Katie Stone and Dan Lupo. The UK’s Toby Lewis also won a title.

The biggest story was England’s Chris Moorman going heads-up against his wife Katie Lindsay for a ring. Moorman took the win, but they netted over $34,000 as a household. 

WSOP.com adds more action with Winter Championships

If that weren’t enough, players will find even more action in February with the Winter Online Championships. The series runs Feb. 14-28 with $1.5 million guaranteed.

Players who may not have the bankroll for the Planet Hollywood series may find more options with this series. There are 47 events on the schedule with buy-ins ranging from $20 to $1,000 and at least three tournaments a day.

The $320 Main Event is set for Feb. 28 and comes with a $200,000 guarantee. The winner also picks up some nice hardware – a WSOP championship belt. Here’s a look at the complete schedule:
