West Palm Beach, FL (July 28, 2014) — Fresh off the heels of an ultra successful World Series of Poker, the 11th season of the Circuit kicks off Wednesday at the Palm Beach Kennel Club in West Palm Beach, FL. A perennial attendance powerhouse, the Kennel Club hosts the first of its two stops during the season beginning this Wednesday and running through Monday, August 11.
Action opens with a five-starting-flight, $500,000-guarantee re-entry event that has become a staple on the Palm Beach schedule. In each of the three previous similar-structured events, the Kennel Club has seen fields of more than 2,500 entries contend for a six-figure first prize.
Other notable events on this year’s schedule include Event 6, a $365 six-handed tournament, Event 9, a $1,125 tournament and the Main Event, the $1,675 finale. The first of two starting flights in the championship tournament begins Friday, August 8. Those players eliminated in the opening session may re-enter in Flight B which begins the following day. Last year’s Main Event drew a stout field of 658 entries amassing a prize pool just shy of $1 million. Notables such as two-time bracelet winner Josh Arieh, Aaron Massey and Mukul Pahuja made a run at Circuit gold, but ultimately succumbed to first-time ring winner Ruslan Dykshteyn who pocketed $202,335.
