Thanks. Sun through Thurs $89. Fri $199 and Sat $279. Is that what you are seeing? Too pricey will have to check out some of the other nearby hotels.

If you win a first seat to the Main can you play for a second and get cash or tournament chips? Looking for the tournament Director's answer on this one as their seem to be just enough differences series to series that I'd like to be sure what the answer is. I know at Harrah's AC you had to use the first seat you won and then you could win a second and get paid one way or another.

I'm always on a budget but like staying right in the hotel. 89 a night mid week aint too bad. Promo code CHEPOKER

I would be stunned if the tournaments were capped.

See y'all there, I'm booked!

You don't want to drive back and forth from Gatlinburg the road is very curvy and difficult to drive on even if there are no problems along the way. Maggie Valley isn't bad and only about 20 minute from the casino. Asheville is a full one hour drive but it's mostly interstate so pretty easy except the 20 minutes between Maggie Valley and the casino which is a bit curvy.

There are a lot of rental cabins up in there for pretty reasonable rates so if you can get a group together I'd recommend renting one.

+1 on Gatlinburg. Road is closed due to rock slide. May or may not be open before series. Road from Maggie Valley is very curvy, slow moving also. Don't take Maggie Valley/Cherokee exit (103 I believe) stay on 74W take exit 74 to 441 only 4 miles to casino. Nice 4 lane highway.

I booked a small cabin at a campground for $45/night + tax. Less than 2mi away from casino plus gets me away from constant casino lifestyle.

I got last one at Indian Creek. Google Cherokee, NC campgrounds and most of them have cabins. However, the starting weekend is also start of trout season so most are booked since the campgrounds are on river.

You can also try VRBO.com there are lots of houses and cabins available through that site.

Thumbs up Re: WSOP Circuit - Harrahs Cherokee. April 4, 2013 - April 15, 2013

Harrah's Cherokee will be getting partial live dealers (in addition to the existing PokerPro tables) in about 4 weeks. This will start out mostly for higher limit games. They will keep their PokerPro tables (or at least most of them).

Obviously, the live dealers will be around for the cash games during the WSOP-C and beyond that. All the WSOP-C events will utilize live dealers and be held in the Event Center next to the Poker Room.

Just for those who who have never played on PokerPro tables, they are live games, and play very similar to games with live dealers (except no tipping of dealers,and 50 hands per hour).

Re: WSOP Circuit - Harrahs Cherokee. April 4, 2013 - April 15, 2013

I have no problem with Poker Pro tables, I've played a lot on them at Cherokee and due to the ability to play twice as many hands per hour and not having to tip the dealer I really like them. They run their nightly tournaments on them and I like that too.

Just booked my nights for the event, I was lucky I had comps and I was able to get 5 weeknights free at Harrahs. I'm staying across the street for the weekend.

Be aware that parking is horrendous at Harrahs. Even during the week it's really hard to find a place in either deck. There is a large lot out front for the overflow but it's a trek from the entrance. A few months ago they started charging for valet parking for hotel guests and it's $12 every time you pull your car out.
