“We are thrilled to partner with GGPoker to bring the World Series of Poker to the city of Toronto for the very first time,” the General Manager for Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto, Robert Katsavelos, said. “This is a fitting milestone that will create further momentum for our 30-table poker room that recently opened at Great Canadian Casino Resort Toronto, Canada’s newest and largest casino resort. We are excited to welcome tournament participants from across the North American poker community and from right here in the city of Toronto.”
GGPoker, which sent 774 players to the main event at last summer’s WSOP and 1,000 players to WSOP Paradise, is launching satellites today across Ontario and Canada with buy-ins starting at only $1.
As well as online qualifiers, GGPoker will be represented at Toronto’s first-ever WSOP Circuit event by some of its brand ambassadors including local poker hero Daniel Negreanu.

The full schedule of events will be announced in the coming days. The WSOP reserves the right to cancel, change or modify the tournament or any tournament event, in part or in whole, without notice.
