Plenty of leaderboard cash up for grabs
Each month as an added bonus, WSOP.com continues to run a $10,000 monthly leaderboard for each online series. 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 by winning:
- a gold ring event
- a $10,000 Player of the Month leaderboard
- a Second Chance Freeroll
Players can also qualify by being among the top 50 players on the cumulative circuit leaderboard
WSOP.com offering loads of freeroll cash
Along with championship rings, WSOP.com also offers players a shot at some free cash. All May ring winners receive entries into a $25,000 freeroll on May 27.
Those finishing among the top 10 on the monthly leaderboard also earn an entry.
WSOP.com will also host a Second Chance Freeroll on May 27. Any player who participated in at least three May ring events can play in the winner-take-all event.
The tournament rewards a seat into the $250,000 Online Circuit Championship.
A look at some April winners

A few regular online grinders scored some rings in April including New Jersey’s Ryan “sychoSid” Hohner, Yong Keun “LUCKYSPEWY1” Kwon, Christopher “Basile28” Basile, and Daniel “ st0neydanza” Dagostino.
New York native Roland Israelashvili took down the super high roller to collect an impressive seventh ring. Nevada regular Jerod Smith even called his shot before taking down the second event in April.
