DAY 9 OF THE HAMMOND CIRCUIT SERIES

Hammond, Ind. (October 22, 2015) — The Main Event is here! The first of two starting flights in the Horseshoe Casino $1,676 Main Event begins at noon CT. Just two years ago, this tournament drew a record-setting field of 1,717 entries. Players begin this year’s champion with 20,000 starting chips and blinds of 25/50. In addition to a first prize that’s expected to be in the $350,000 range, the winner earns a seat in the first-ever season-ending WSOP Global Casino Championship.

Running alongside the Main Event will be Day 2 of Event #8, yesterday’s $365 Omaha 8 tournament. Leading the way 33 players remaining and only 18 finishing in the money is HORSE winner Jim Juvancic. If he’s able to make another deep run he’ll take a nice lead in the Casino Championship with just a few events remaining.
