WSOP Circuit St. Louis Starts Strong (Relatively)
April 14, 2022
Big buy-in poker tournament stops, in areas not already known to be poker hubs, have been struggling as of late to attract what most would call stellar numbers, with many unable to even break 100; so in many respects it was nice to see that the World Series of Poker Circuit Series’ recent gamble to bring a major $5,000 buy-in event to the St. Louis area, was at least relatively rewarded, with 129 registered players and numerous established pros, choosing to show up and play.

Among the recognizable pros that decided to visit the “Gateway to the West” for this event were such big names as Jason Potter, Bernard Lee, “Captain” Tom Franklin, Thomas Fuller and EPT Scandinavian Open winner Tim Vance, all of whom made it through the day’s eliminations to advance to Day 2.

These five players, along with the 29 other Day 1 survivors, will now continue their quest for the all-important money and specifically for a top prize valued at $180,814, but it wont be easy; only 12 in total will earn a percentage of the event’s $625,650 prize pool, and the rest will be sent packing, forced to settle with just being able to say they took part in the first ever St. Louis based WSOP Circuit main event.
