Harrah's Atlantic City informed us that they will have 120 tables available during the WSOP Circuit tournament series. The exact line from their press release reads, "With more than 120 tables ready for poker action, this event should bring some of the very best poker talent to Harrah's Resort where table games action is king."

Zion, I'm a regular at Harrah's, they have 40 tables in the main poker room downstairs. During the Circuit Events they utilize the banquet/convention area on the 2nd floor. So... Yes, they have well over 120 tables.
