World Series of Poker Circuit Event Comes to the Bicycle Casino in January
Series Will Feature a $1,600 Buy-In Main Event Championship
The WSOP Circuit and the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles will welcome in the new year by hosing an official WSOP Circuit stop in Southern California Jan. 1-12, 2012.
The Bicycle Casino stop marks the first time the WSOP has offered a branded event in the Los Angeles market.
“The process of bringing the World Series of Poker to Los Angeles has been a long time in the making, and we are very pleased with the finalization of our partnership,” stated Hashem Minaiy, the Bike’s Managing Partner and CEO. “Players have wanted to play a WSOP event in L.A. where poker has always been king, and the Bicycle Casino is considered a key venue for players worldwide.”
Each stop on the circuit includes a $1,600 buy-in main event championship, featuring re-entries. Unique to this year’s LA WSOP Circuit Tour event, many of the events will be streamed live on www.liveatthebike.com.
“With the WSOP Circuit Tour breaking records at every stop, it was finally the right time to come to LA for a signature mid-season event,” said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “We’re pleased to enter a multi-year agreement with the Bicycle Casino for what is certain to be one of our largest annual events.”
The 2011-12 schedule now includes 17 official tour stops and they all count towards the $1 million national championship freeroll tournament, reserved to 100 qualifiers.
The WSOP National Championship will be part of the WSOP taking place at the Rio in Las Vegas in the summer of 2012.
