World Series circuit and promotions headed to Ohio



Ohio players are getting ready for the World Series of Poker Circuit at Horseshoe Cincinnati in September, but there’s still plenty of action around the state.

HOLLYWOOD TOLEDO: The poker room offers the largest selection of tournaments for less than $100 in the state. It also has many new promotions rolling out, so be sure to call the room for more details.

HORSESHOE CLEVELAND: With new management comes new things as manager Karen Kaegin will be introducing a broad range of tournament action and changes to the cash-game promotions and buy-ins.

Also, there likely will be ways for you to qualify for the WSOPC in Cincy.

HOLLYWOOD COLUMBUS: The tournament schedule has been revamped to have something for everyone, including $10K and $20K guarantees. The VIP program, which is on top of $1 comps, has seen some changes. The state has requested that food comps not be used in that program and thus we now have the state’s only rake-back program starting at 50 cents an hour for qualifying players.

HORSESHOE CINCINNATI: Poker room manager Jason Newman is gearing up for his 61-table WSOPC event this month. If you’re interested in playing in that series, Newman is making it easy for players to qualify for the $1,600 main event with special offers. Call the poker room for more info.
