The tournament finale is scheduled for May 22 through May 24.

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has released its 2024 Tournament of Champions Schedule, along with its 19th WSOP Circuit (WSOP-C) season concluding details.

The tournament began this season at Oklahoma’s Choctaw Casino Resort and included more than 25 stops. The matchup will wrap up this year with WSOP Circuit Los Angeles at The Commerce Casino & Hotel in Los Angeles.

The circuit will run from May 10 to May 24, with the Tournament of Champions scheduled from May 22 to May 24. This year’s event will offer players a chance to take home $1.75m in guarantees and 18 WSOP gold rings.

WSOP SVP & Executive Director Ty Stewart further commented on what the event will offer poker players by saying, “For years, the Commerce has been the home of poker in Los Angeles and one of the leading card rooms in the world.

“We look forward to kicking off our new strategic relationship with a special WSOP Circuit finale and the Tournament of Champions bracelet event. We also look forward to qualifying more players from Los Angeles for the WSOP Main Event than ever before.”

The Commerce Casino & Hotel Director of Guest Experience Spencer Villaseñor said that the company is eager to partner with WSOP.

He commented, “We are ecstatic to merge our strengths with the World Series of Poker. This collaboration marks the convergence of two giants in the poker world and presents endless possibilities.

“Together, we are committed to pushing boundaries and setting new standards of excellence in the industry.”
