Schedule Announced for WSOP Atlantic City Circuit Event



Most poker enthusiasts are currently thinking about their plans for World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) or the World Poker Tour (WPT) event currently running at the Borgata in Atlantic City.  However, those who like to plan ahead are already setting their sights on another upcoming Atlantic City tournament series, the World Series of Poker Circuit Event (WSOPC) at Harrah’s in December.

This week, WSOPC staff released the official schedule of events and the series will offer 17 different tournaments during its run from December 4th through 20th.  The tournaments will range in length from one to three days and feature buy-ins from $230 to $5,150.  That largest buy-in is for the WSOPC Atlantic City’s Three-Day Deep Stack Main Event taking place from the 13th to the 15th.

Those participating in the Main Event will receive 30,000 chips with the blinds beginning at 25/50.  Each level will last 60 minutes with a 15-minute break after every two levels and play extending to 90 minutes per level once the final table is reached.  The Main Event is not the only tournament featuring the deep-stacked structure, though.  There will also be $1,600 and $2,150 tournaments taking place after the start of the Main Event.  They will retain the same hour-long levels and blind structure of the Main Event with 20,000 and 25,000 chip starting stacks, respectively.

Whoever takes down the Main Event will join an impressive list of previous WSOPC winners who have found success in Atlantic City.  The WSOPC swings through Atlantic City twice every year with stops at Harrah’s and Caesars Palace.  Some of the former winners at both locations include John Racener, Eric “sheets” Haber, and Brent “Astrolux85″ Roberts.  Roberts is the defending Harrah’s Atlantic City WSOPC Main Event Champion and recently made online poker news when he took down PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) Event #36, a $530 buy-in No Limit Hold’em with Rebuys event.

The Harrah’s Atlantic City event will be the fourth stop on the WSOPC.  The latest season kicks off next month with a newly introduced series at the Horseshoe in Hammond, Indiana.  That series will run from October 16th to 25th. Then, the WSOPC will host events at Horseshoe Southern Indiana and Harveys Lake Tahoe before settling in for the December events at Harrah’s Atlantic City.

Here is the complete schedule of events for the upcoming WSOPC Harrah’s Atlantic City series (all events start at 11:00am local time unless stated otherwise):
