Almost five weeks into the 2014 World Series of Poker and Event #56 of the 65 scheduled tournaments this year gets underway shortly.
This is the last $1,000 event the summer at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, and with last year’s winner, Matt Waxman, walking away with $305,952 it is one of the few remaining chances for a bank roll booster before the Main Event begins les then a week away.
The fields have been consistently large so far this year with a few record breakers, and there is expected to be another decent turn out looking to top last year’s 1,837 entrants.
You should know the drill by now; cards are in the air at 12 p.m. for a scheduled eleven levels of one-hour play with a 90 minute dinner break after level six. Players receive 3,000 in Tournament Chips with blinds starting at 25-25.
