WSOP Circuit Going Strong

The WSOP Circuit events at Harrah’s Resort have been putting up some pretty good numbers for the early tournaments in a kind of sneaky fashion.

acw-WSOP-ring2The opening event of the circuit seemed to be off by a lot from a record 1,250 players in 2010’s opener, but as we cover in Poker Lowdown this week, the attendance for the circuit’s second event was up by the same amount.

So that kind of squares things.

The next three events that followed drew big, if not spectacular, fields and some decent prize pools.

Event 3 of the circuit stop was a $500 + $55 No Limit tournament that drew 288 players and a prize pool of $139,680. That’s not bad for one of the circuit’s higher buy-ins.

The winner was Michael Linster of Levittown NY who takes home $35,529. Linster now has about $150K in tournament winnings, all of which came in A.C. or Connecticut.

Event 4 was another $300 + $45 event that drew a healthy 555 players and a $161K prize pool. It was won by a true amateur, Dustin Manns of Media Pa., who registers his first win and takes home $33,922.

And Event 5, another $500 + $55 event that’s still underway drew 340 players.

Looking at the leader boards, most of the players are from New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York, but there’s a healthy showing from south of the area with players making the hike from Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.

That’s a positive sign since it means most players drove past some of the city’s new casino competitors to get here and play.

Gotta say, so far, this circuit events seems to be a success.

    I hope you won’t consider this spam (and if so, feel free to delete) but my wife and I run an online store specializing in pet strollers for dogs and cats. We carry the Happy Trails Plus Pink pet stroller for $60 less than the site you linked to, and we have free shipping to 48 states! You can find the same pet stroller at justpetstrollers.com/…lus_pink_pet_stroller.html
