Harrah’s Chester
Hosting WSOP Circuit

April 29, 2012 -

The World Series of Poker Circuit event at Harrah’s Chester is underway and will continue through May 7.

Like other WSOP Circuit series, the Harrah’s Chester tournament features 12 so-called ring events. Those are events where winners earn a WSOP Circuit ring, and players who make it to the money in events also earn points toward a National Championship being played in July at the Rio casino in Las Vegas as part of the World Series of Poker.

Here’s the schedule for the Harrah’s Chester WSOP Circuit tournament.

Because the top 66 point-earners for the entire WSOP Circuit season earn free seats in the $1 million guaranteed National Championship this summer, the Harrah’s Chester event has a bit more urgency for players hoping to win one of those seats. Harrah’s Chester is the next-to-last Circuit event of the season, with the tournament series at Harrah’s New Orleans in May being the final one.

In addition to the 66 point-leaders for the Circuit season, winners of each individual Circuit series main event and the highest point-earners for the Circuit events in a single casino also win freeroll seats in the National Championship.

Most of the buy-ins for Circuit events at Harrah’s Chester are in the $345 to $555 range, with a few higher. The Chester main event is a $1,600 buy-in. In addition to the 12 ring events at Harrah’s Chester, there’s a $1,100 satellite for the WSOP Main Event at the Rio beginning July 7. The WOP Main Event satellite is being played on May 7 and Harrah’s Chester has $190 mega-satellites scheduled to win entry into that satellite.
