A separate WPTDeepStacks festival is also set to kick off later this week. This one will be held in the beautiful South African city of Johannesburg, and Emperors Palace will be the venue to play host to it.

The WPTDeepStacks Johannesburg will be taking place from March 7 through March 18. The R11,000 Main Event is scheduled for March 16-18.

The R100,000 High Roller with a limited 24-entry field is another exciting event that will take place within the festival. It will run on March 7-9 at the host venue. Players will be able to join its field until the second level of Day 2.

WSOP Circuit – Atlantic City

Harrah’s Resort on the legendary Atlantic City Boardwalk will be the next stop of one of America’s most popular poker series. The next WSOP Circuit festival will be running from March 8 through March 19 at the above-mentioned casino.
