Lake Tahoe, NV (October 23, 2018) — The World Series of Poker Circuit tour continues on Thursday, October 25th after finishing up in Hammond, IN just a few day ago. Harvey's in Lake Tahoe represents the 8th of 28 stops in the 2018/2019 schedule. Once again, 13 World Series of Poker Circuit rings will be up for grabs over the course of the next week and a half. While Harvey's is one of the smaller stops on the circuit, there is no shortage of fun or action. Along with that, Lake Tahoe is widely touted as one of the most beautiful destinations on the U.S. circuit.

Action kicks off with a one day event, Event #1: $250 No-Limit Hold'em with Unlimited Re-Entries. The $250 buy in is a new price point on the WSOP Circuit allowing players to get in for cheaper than they ever have before for a chance to win a gold circuit ring. Immediately following that is Event #2: $400 No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry. This event will be one of the biggest of the series and features three starting flights. Two on Friday, October 26 at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. and one on Saturday, October 27 at 11 a.m. as well with Day 2 on Sunday, October 28 at 12 p.m. Last year's multi-day re-entry event drew out 513 players, creating a prizepool of $687,000. The eventual winner was Shane Gonzales who walked away with $30,814 and his first WSOP Circuit ring. 

The Harvey's Lake Tahoe Circuit Stop does not include a High Roller event, but there is still plenty of action to be had. On Thursday, November 1, Event #9: $600 No-Limit Hold'em with Big Blind Antes kicks off, which represents the second largest buy in of the series, outside of the Main Event. This event is another new feature of the circuit which is gradually introducing more and more event with the big blind ante format.

Along with that of course are some other regular staples of the circuit, such as Event #5: No-Limit Hold'em Six Handed on Monday, October 29 at 11 a.m., Event #6: $400 Pot-Limit Omaha on Monday, October 29 at 4 p.m. and Event #8: $400 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack on Wednesday, October 31st at 11 a.m. All of this of course culminates in Event #10: $1,700 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event. Last year's Main Event drew out 458 runners and created a prizepool of $687,000. The winner of that event was Maxwell Young of Seaside, OR who locked up his second circuit ring and the first place prize of $147,699. Young now has three circuit rings and has been spotted at several other stops on the circuit this year, such as Thunder Valley and Harrah's Cherokee, so he'll likely be back to defend his title. 

Two seats will also be given away for the Global Casino Championship at this stop. One for the eventual winner of the Main Event and one for the eventual "Casino Champion," which will be determined by which player accumulates the most points during the 13 gold ring events.The Global Casino Championship is an exclusive, invitation-only event.
