Lets hope the uniform structure is the one you used in Tunica and Rincon.

Talking to Jimmy is not like talking to a dead horse as he is one of the few TD's that listen to players.

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

Ditto!

Looking forward to it. Played 3 events last time. Will play more next time if structures are good. Hoping the $340 tournies use the better structure this time.

Looking forward to hearing the circuits too but Jimmy may be preoccupied as his father-inlaw just passed away.

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.

More details to come, but from AP reporter Oskar Garcia:

Here's Oskar's article:

Cliffs:

At least 12 Circuit events, 4 regional championships, $1,000,000 freeroll "national championship" at Caesars' Palace with the winner getting a bracelet.

Wow adding 4 televised 10k's is sooooo sick... Feel like this should be reposted somewhewre...

Edit: but I guess they lowered all the other Main Event buyins to 1500?

Already reposted over in MTTC.

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 for right now.

Now we need info on the standardized structures.

Pretty sweet. 1500 is a lot easier to put up than 5k and a chance for a nice freeroll too.

was hoping for 2500 or 3k, 1500 seems like a big dropoff

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.

Structures and payouts will be standardized, as noted in the announcement.

As to what the structures will actually be, that's not known yet.

I hope one of the "possible" new locations is South Florida, that would be a sick huge tournament.
