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.

Like previous years, the 2014-2015 Circuit season boasts more than 20 stops set to take place across the country between now and May of next year. Each host property is slated to award 12 gold rings and two seats to the season-ending National Championship. Exact dates and location for the National Championship are to be announced at a later time.

As mentioned previously, this week’s opening stop is just the first of two series to be held at the Kennel Club. The other is slated for February of 2015. Also hosting two series this year is one of the Circuit’s newest properties, Harrah’s Cherokee. The venue, located outside of Atlanta, hosts stops in November of this year and in April of next.

Wayne Lovell Wins 1st Circuit Ring

Wayne Lovell winner$365 No Limit Hold’em

“Awesome…a definite thrill” is how Wayne Lovell described winning his first WSOP Circuit ring and $16,380 in the final event of the season at Harrah’s New Orleans. He’s been playing tournaments seriously for about two and a half years. This was his second cash of this series — he finished 7th Event 1.

At one point at the final table, Lovell had over 1 million chips, but doubled up another player five times. He held on to get heads-up but was way behind in chips. The heads-up match between Brandon Jackson and Wayne Lovell only lasted about 20 minutes. Jackson had the lead with about 1.7 million to Lovell’s 325k, but Lovell doubled up twice to take the lead. On the final hand, all the chips went on the flop. Lovell had top pair and was ahead of Jackson, who had straight and flush draws. He whiffed all his outs and Lovell had the win. Brandon Jackson leaves with $10,118 for second place.

There were 210 entrants in the final ring event of the series and the season. The total prize pool came to $63,000 and was shared among the final 21 players. There were no WSOP hardware owners at this final table. The event began at 3pm Sunday and at the end of 18 levels of play, only 14 players remained. They returned for Day 2

at 1pm on Sunday.

Notables cashing in this event were WSOP bracelet holder Robert ‘RCW’ Cheung, who finished 21st for $698, and November Niner and ring winner Dennis Phillips, who finished 15th for $984.

Sean Small entered the event with 125 points and in 59th place on the National Leaderboard. He needed at least an 11th place finish to gain a berth in the National Championships. He did even better than that, finishing 6th for 22.5 points bringing his total to 147.5 and locking up a seat in the $1 Million freeroll starting later this week.

“I took it one step at a time,” said the US Army Sergeant First Class of his journey to the win. Lovell has 24 years in the service and plans to retire later this year. He only made it to three stops on the Circuit this season, but after retiring, he hopes to spend more time traveling and playing poker.

Farewell To The Big Easy

Twelve rings in twelve days — that’s been the draw all season on the WSOP Circuit. Now the last of 22 stops on the 2013/2014 schedule has come to a close. Harrah’s New Orleans played host to their tenth Circuit series and now it is

time to turn out the lights.

Twelve rings were awarded and we saw many multiple-ring winners during this series. David Nicholson and Austin Apicella each picked up their fourth rings. Main Event winner Bryan Campanello picked up his third. Tim West and Jason Potter became two-time ring winners. Of course there were seven first-timers out there, happy to pick up their first bit of shiny WSOP gold.

Tim West became Casino Champion and is headed to the National Championship along with Main Event winner Bryan Campanello. Several other players waited until the last events at the last stop to punch their tickets, including Jamie Kerstetter, Stephen Hesse and Sean Small. They’ll be headed to Atlantic City for the $1 Million freeroll, which starts Thursday.

The Circuit season is over, but the grand finale, the National Championship, is coming up later this week. Be sure to tune in to WSOP.com’s Live Updates May 22-24 for coverage of the 2013/14 National Championship at Bally’s Atlantic City where 100 of the Circuit’s elite as well as any Player of the Year Points Qualifiers will do battle for a piece of the $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool.

Yo Eleven!

The eleventh day of the Harrah’s New Orleans Circuit series has finally come to an end.  It began with a bang at 12 noon with 111 players returning for Day 2 of the Main Event.  When they reached the end of level 25, only ten players remained.  They will return at noon Monday to finish up and see who walks away with a shiny gold WSOP Circuit ring and over $175,000.

By finishing in the money, Tim West secured the Casino Championship title with 100 points.  Jamie Kerstetter finished 11th and locked up her seat in the National Championship.

Also running today was the very final ring event of Season 10.  Event 12 saw 210 players enter for a prize pool of $63,000.  The final 21 got paid, including bracelet holder Robert Cheung (21st) and November Niner Dennis Phillips.  Phillips’ 15th place finish did not earn him enough points to reach the at-large seats in the National Championship.

At the end of 18 levels, only 14 players remained.  They will return at 1pm Monday for the finale.  Terrence Ridgely leads with 352,000.  The only player still in and chasing points is Sean Small.  He’s got 125 points coming in and is guaranteed to earn at least 5 more.  He needs at least 10 points (11th place or better) to reach the at-large seats for the National Championship.

Monday will bring the very last day of the series and the season and will be full of excitement as the last two rings are awarded and the points are finalized for the National Championship.  Keep your browser pointed to WSOP.com for all the action.

Good night from the Harrah’s New Orleans Theatre!
