World Series of Poker returns March 13-25 to Hard Rock Casino
CATOOSA – The World Series of Poker is clocking back in on “Tulsa Time” March 13-25 and bringing its tour to the brand-new poker room at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.
The tournament consists of 52 events in 13 days, including the return of the $1 million guaranteed No Limit Hold’em Championship event beginning on March 22 and concluding March 25.
WSOP is also holding a $500,000 No Limit Re-Entry event on the first weekend, which features five flights over three days. This year, the stop features 13 official WSOP Circuit Ring events, as well as two Seniors No Limit Hold’em events and a ladies’ event.
Event buy-ins range from $135 to $3,250. Satellite qualifier buy-ins range from $65 to $250.
Players will be looking to follow the footsteps of last year’s circuit winner, Jonathan Poche. The Youngsville, Louisiana, resident won $216,307 in the main event, which featured 721 entrants competing for $1,081,500. The top 81 competitors finished in the money.
Players can qualify for the 2018-19 Global Casino Championship by winning a Circuit Main Event at any domestic or international stop; by winning a “Casino Championship,” which is defined as the player at each stop who accumulates the most points throughout the 12-event gold ring schedule at any domestic or international stop; or by being one of the top 50 cumulative point earners over the entire season who hasn’t otherwise qualified (domestic tour only).
WSOP Circuit Events are a series of poker tournaments hosted throughout the United States and throughout the world, beginning in early August each year and culminating the following summer, with a $1 million Global Casino Championship where the victor earns a WSOP gold bracelet.
Guests must be 21 years of age to play. Discounted hotel rooms are available starting at $89 with code WSOP2019.
