Southern California casino has 12 rings up for grabs from March 4 through March 15
Los Angeles, Ca. (March 2, 2017) - The last West Coast stop of the World Series of Poker Circuit season kicks off on Saturday afternoon at the Bicycle Casino. From March 4-15, the Los Angeles based casino will have 12 rings and two Global Casino Championship seats up for grabs.
This is the second stop of the season at the Bike and it kicks off with what should be a massive field and prizepool on Saturday afternoon. The $365 No-Limit Texas Hold’em Monster Stack event has four separate starting flights, unlimited re-entries, and a $300,000 guaranteed prizepool. There will be two starting flights on both Saturday and Sunday before the survivors merge into one field for Day 2 on Monday afternoon.
The action kicks off on Saturday, but the first ring of the series won’t be awarded until Tuesday with the Monster stack crowning a champion and the second event of the series, a $365 no-limit hold’em, both coming to a close.
The series is littered with no-limit hold’em events of all different buy-ins ranging from $365 all the way up to the $3,250 no-limit hold’em high roller event. The high roller events on the Circuit are steadily becoming more prevalent, but the Bike consistently has one of the bigger field sizes for their high rollers.
Along with the high roller event, the stop will feature the Circuit’s marquee event – the $1,675 no-limit hold’em Main Event. This stop’s Main Event kicks off on Saturday, March 11 and has two Day 1s, with a ring to be awarded on Tuesday, March 13. During last year’s stop, Antonio Esfandiari came out on top of a star-studded final table to defeat a 756-entry friend and best Jamie Gold heads-up to win $226,785 and his first Circuit title.
The winner of the Main Event and the Casino Champion will each earn an automatic entry into the 2017 Global Casino Championship, which will take place in Cherokee, North Carolina this August.
All of the events during this series have unlimited re-entry, except for the Main Event. The Main Event allows one re-entry per starting flight, which is good for up to four entries for the tournament. For Nevada players, you can win your way into the Circuit Main Event at the Bike by winning a satellite on WSOP.com. Satellites are running from March 5-9 with $30 direct satellites to the Main Event and $3 super satellites.
The only non no-limit hold’em event on tap for the Bike is its $365 Omaha Hi-Lo event. It is the fourth event of the series and gets cards in the air at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 7.
