Harveys still packs them in for WSOPC in Tahoe

Lake Tahoe was the place to be in November as the World Series of Poker Circuit visited Harveys, a charter member of the WSOPC that has hosted a stop during all eight seasons of the tour.

Players from across the country came to Tahoe to compete for their share of the prize money (Results are below).

The weather was great, allowing players to commute from Sacramento and the Bay Area. The scenery at the Lake is always beautiful, giving players an extra incentive to make the drive.
Poker room manager Vince Contaxis said, “The turnout was great; this has been one of our best years ever.”

The poker room at Harveys regularly spreads $2-$3 no-limit hold’em and $3-$6 limit games. During the tournament the cash games were playing as high as $3-$5 and $5-$10 NLHE. Players also enjoyed a rare $1-$2 pot-limit Omaha game that ran throughout the week.

Michael Rosenbach was named best all-around player for the series, making three final tables and winning two gold rings to earn a seat in the WSOPC national championship.

The $1,600 main event drew 326 players, generating a prize pool of nearly $500K for the three-day tournament. Brian Schultz, a 25-year-old from Chicago, was the big winner, pocketing $111,812.
Reno/Tahoe is redefining itself as one of the best destinations for tournament players to enjoy. With the recent expansion of poker rooms in the area, players have a variety of tournaments to choose from throughout the year. It seems every month a new series arises making Reno-Tahoe a great area for any poker player to visit or call home.

ATLANTIS HIGH STAKES: The $1,060 High Stakes Hold’em Main Event in early November at Atlantis Casino attracted 58 players as Dustin Fox captured the $20,816 top prize. He was followed by Mike Harvey ($13,502), Hank Czarnecki ($8,439), Robert McCormack ($5,626), Liz Jones ($4,501) and Douglas Smeltzer ($3,376).
