Chasing Points (or Not)

Three events into the series, some of the Circuit regulars have started to turn up to try and accumulate more points in the season-long race for seats in the WSOP Global Casino Championship. Greg Himmelbrand arrived yesterday for Event #2, and he's part of the Event #3 field this afternoon too. Himmelbrand won a Turbo event at Choctaw earlier this year, and his running total of 105 points puts him within reach with a handful of stops still remaining on the 2015/16 calendar.

A few tables over, Cory Waaland is making his debut at this Harrah's Atlantic City series. Waaland is a seven-time ring winner who has the luxury of ignoring the points for the remainder of the season. Waaland earned Casino Champion honors at Bally's Las Vegas, locking up his automatic berth and freeing up an extra at-large bid for the field.
