The Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati expects more than 8,000 players as it hosts a stop on the popular World Series of Poker traveling tournament starting this week.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the action starting Thursday will include the new casino’s regular poker room and an event space converted into a 60-table poker room. An estimated $3 million in prize money will be up for grabs in the 12-day event in Cincinnati.

It’s one of 22 stops on the tour, which ends in Atlantic City with a national championship in May. The Horseshoe Casino Cleveland will host the competition in March.

Caesars Entertainment holds a stake in the two Ohio casinos and also owns the World Series of Poker.
