• Los Angeles stop added to WSOPC schedule

    November 21, 2011, Jack McAdoo

    The World Series of Poker Circuit has added a new stop to the 2011-2012 schedule. For the first time, the WSOP Circuit will visit the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles. The added event will take place from Jan. 1 through 12, 2012, and it will feature 34 different poker tournaments, which include 12 official ring events that will culminate in a $1,500 Main Event.
    “With the WSOP Circuit Tour breaking records at every stop, it was finally the right time to come to LA for a signature mid-season event,” said Ty Stewart, executive director of the WSOP.
    “We’re pleased to enter a multi-year agreement with the Bicycle Casino for what is certain to be one of our largest annual events.”
    The Bike houses over 150 poker tables, and becomes the 17th stop on the 2011-2012 schedule. Mo Fathipour will serve as the event’s poker tournament operator. This is also the first time that the WSOP has offered a WSOP-branded event in the Los Angeles market.
    “The process of bringing the World Series of Poker to Los Angeles has been a long time in the making, and we are very pleased with the finalization of our partnership,” said Hashem Minaiy, the Bike’s managing partner and CEO.
    “Players have wanted to play a WSOP event in L.A. where poker has always been king, and the Bicycle Casino is considered a key venue for players worldwide.”
    This is another chance to qualify for the National Championship on the WSOP Circuit. And if you can’t get to L.A., there are still plenty of opportunities to play, at any of the remaining stops on the WSOP Circuit schedule.
