Almost-Final Numbers for 2009/10 WSOP-Circuit

Minor-league poker season comes to a close

Might not be fair to our pals at Heartland Poker Tour — or even the people we don’t know running low buy-in events across multiple US states — to allow WSOP schedules to determine when the sun does not rise on the Gregorian poker calendar as if all players were Chinese Hebrews … but hey, that’s how it works in poker. As much as the nation of Pokerstarzistan might want to go to war to establish their EPT/UKIPT-APPT/ANZPT-NAPT/LAPT(?) clock as the new global standard … the World Series of Poker still sets the international norm for how poker people are supposed to plan/keep track of our lives.

With that said, there are two more events at WSOP-NOLA this week … the ladies event and a seniors event … but leading up to those, WSOP clerics have released official “semi-final” statistics for the 2009-2010 WSOP-Circuit season … which awarded more than $20 million in prize money and 150 gold rings across 11 stops held in Hammond, Indiana (Chicago), Southern Indiana, Lake Tahoe, Atlantic City, Tunica, Council Bluffs, Caesars Atlantic City, San Diego (Rincon), St. Louis, Las Vegas, and New Orleans.

For those interested, that accounts for about 1/10 of overall WSOP prize money and more than 2/3 of annual WSOP hardware awarded. Seems Mark “Pegasus” from Georgetown, KY, took down the lion’s share for an unofficial title as Minor League Player of the Year.
