One WSOPC wraps, another begins in A.C.

Atlantic City hosts its first World Series of Poker Circuit at Caesars on Feb. 28-March 11. The WSOPC includes 12 ring events and a two-step satellite event for July’s WSOP main event at the Rio in Las Vegas. With some skill and a little luck, a player could enter the WSOP main for as little as $150.

The WSOPC hits 20 casinos this season and its main events have been profitable in the past, building a lucrative first-place prize as much as $330K recently in Chicago. The AC Caesars WSOPC has proved over the years to be just as promising. With a Tournament Efficiency Rating of 13.4, the WSOPC at Caesars has excellent structures that bring players from around the world.

• In Philadelphia, more daily tournaments are available seven days a week. The daily tournaments at Parx and Harrah’s Philadelphia started at the beginning of the year, and the new schedule is steadily accumulating a respectable number of players. The field is usually soft with the exception of a handful of regular daily tournament players.

“Only having a few options per week led me to play elsewhere, not focusing on tournaments as much as I d like, said Chris Horter, frequent tournament player at Parx. “Now that more tournaments are offered, I believe a stronger following will develop.
