Harrah's resort will host the World Series of Poker circuit event December 4-22 as it has for the several years, the Real Deal blog had on its website last week.
The super regional event is a $10,000 by-in ($9,700+$300).
I question the timing and the buy-in of the event. With the event being held right before Christmas and the amount of money it would cost to participate in this event, Harrah's is alienating many of its local players. I expect a small turnout for the super regional.
There could be some big name players, but the winter on the East Coast isn't really a favorite place to be especially considering how terrible the winter was last season.
