The World Series of Poker heads to Atlantic City, a long-standing Circuit destination.

Atlantic City, N.J. (March 7, 2017) -- The World Series of Poker Circuit has completed the first 15 of 22 stops for the 2016-2017 tour, and will mark another one off the list with the conclusion of the Bicycle (Los Angeles) series this coming Wednesday. The 17th stop on the Circuit schedule will be held at Harrah's Atlantic City Casino on the coast of New Jersey.

Cards will be in the air Thursday, March 9th at noon, with a $365 No-Limit Texas Hold'em, two-day tournament. The ever-popular No-Limit Hold'em Re-Entry event, with three starting flights, begins the following morning (Mar. 10th) with Flight A of the tournament. There will be 12 gold ring events total, including the $1,675 Main Event that commences Friday, March 17th. The Main Event will conclude Monday, March 20th, bringing the Harrah's Atlantic City Circuit to a close.

The winner of the Main Event and the Casino Champion will each earn a seat to the 2017 Global Casino Championship.
