The World Series of Poker returns to the Rio in a little less than 100 days, but for those in Sin City who can’t wait to get their WSOP fix, they can get in on the action in less than 100 hours.

Beginning Thursday, February 20th, the WSOP Circuit will call Caesars Palace in the heart of the Las Vegas strip home for 12 days of poker tournament action across 12 ring events. This flagship city on the Circuit has always been a popular stop for Circuit grinders and one of the more star-powered stops on the tour as local pros take their stab at winning a ring.

Last season, tons of notables picked up rings, including bracelet winners Brent Hanks and Dan Heimiller and poker pros Justin Young, Tim West, and Joe Kuether. The Main Event proved to be one of the largest field Main Events of the season with 744 entries. The big turnout meant a big payday for eventual winner David Tuthill, who pocketed over $223,000 in addition to the ring and the seat to the WSOP National Championship.

This year, the series will once again feature a $365 buy-in re-entry event on the opening weekend of action. This event features two starting days on Friday the 21st and Saturday the 22nd. Players who bust during Flight A on Friday are able to re-enter on 1B on Saturday. Last year, this event drew 872 entries with Heimiller turning his $365 investment into a payday worth over $50,000.

Other notable events on the schedule include a $1,125 buy-in event on Monday, February 24th, a $365 Pot Limit Omaha event on the 26th, and non-ring Seniors and Ladies events. A full schedule of events is available on WSOP.com. Structure sheets for all the events can be found on the Caesars Palace Poker Room website.

This year’s $1,675 buy-in Main Event kicks off with the first of two starting days on Friday, February 28th. Like the $365 buy-in re-entry event, this tournament features a single re-entry option where players who bust on Friday are able to re-enter Flight B on Saturday.

The poker room at Caesars Palace will offer single table satellites to events beginning on the 20th as well as daily non-ring events at 9am, 7pm, and 10pm each day.

For Nevadans looking to play their way into the Main Event on a budget, WSOP.com will be offering nightly online satellites to the Main Event starting on the 19th. Every night at 8pm, the site will offer a $16.50 buy-in satellite event with rebuys and add-ons with one $1,675 seat guaranteed. This will be the first event players in Nevada can satellite into a Circuit event on the exclusive online satellite provider for WSOP live events, WSOP.com.
