World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event at The Bike Kicks Off
CPTV Talks to Jack Effel, Jeff Madsen at Inaugural Bike Stop
The World Series of Poker Circuit kicked off the new year with its inaugural stop at The Bicycle Casino, getting started the very first day of 2012. The Bike will play host to 34 total events and 12 WSOP Circuit gold-ring events, including the $1,600 Main Event, which began at noon today.
A number of tournaments remain, but there have already been some notable winners. Michael Rosenbach won his third WSOPC ring in as many months when he won event no. 4, a $555 six-max no-limit hold’em event with 171 total entrants. The 29-year-old pro earned $22,035 for his victory.
Rosenbach was awarded his first two rings at the WSOP Circuit Lake Tahoe stop in November, securing him the title of “Player of the Series” and a spot in the WSOP Circuit National Championship in Las Vegas next summer.
Rosenbach was not the only player to win their third WSOP Circuit gold ring at The Bike. La Sengphet took down event no. 5, a $345 no-limit hold’em event, to become the very first female player to join that illustrious group, which includes 2010 player of the Year runner-up Dwyte Pilgrim, Kyle Cartwright and Mark Smith. Sengphet topped a field of 377 to earn the $25,242 first-place prize.
With the $1,600 WSOP Circuit Main Event kicking off today, Card Player TV caught up with WSOP Tournament Director Jack Effel and Los Angeles local Jeff Madsen to learn more about the event.
