plo yes...stud or shootout no....stud not enough participation...shootout is a nightmare for tables as you do not combine tables. Hard to do in a circuit event enviroment. Structures will be uniform at all stops..Look for more news on the 12th . any thing else i say may get me FIRED!!!!
Lets hope the uniform structure is the one you used in Tunica and Rincon.
July 12th.....News conference. MAJOR CHANGES. All i can say, It is a very positive step in the right direction. I will respond as soon as I am allowed. Council Bluffs is in August. I will be the TD there. I will also be the TD at Lake Tahoe, IP, Tunica,St Louis and Rincon.
Look for my response on the 12th. Good luck to all in the Championship Event!
Read this and got excited, can't wait to hear the news on Monday.
Really looking forward the circuit events, seeing as how my hopes and dreams were crushed once again at the Rio
I understand Stud isn't the most popular game and can accept that.
doesn't mean we have to like it though...having discovered that I have even more of an aptitude for it (as an offshoot of my interest in HORSE) than I do NLHE, if it (stud) isn't on a schedule, I won't even consider the travel for the event.
But there is a $1m freeroll for 100 players (12 $1,500 Circuit winners, final nine at the 4 regional championships, the "casino champion at the 12 Circuit stops, top 36 overall in WSOP Circuit POY points).
That adds up to 96 though, unless there's something not mentioned yet.
I noticed in the press release it said that "planned to add a handful more stops", so maybe 4 more stops?
I'm really excited now. I don't really know how they worked the deal out with IP in Biloxi since its not a Harrah's-owned property, but that'll be a great stop. I won't get overly excited until I see this "standardized structure", but if it's like the structures in Tunica then it'll be great. If the $1500 main event structures will allow for a lot of play, I think we could see a TON of runners in each of those.
Overall, it's definitely a huge improvement in the circuit and a very fresh and innovative idea to bring out more players.
