Shuffle up and deal!

There’s no shortage of great local tournaments for players with bankrolls ranging from "strictly on a budget" to "the sky’s the limit."

A good example of the former is the Beat the Pros event taking place this weekend at the Gold Coast. This is always an enjoyable tournament with the chance to pick up some bounties by knocking off the designated professionals.

It’s also a solid tournament that you don’t have to fight off 5,000 entries to hit the board.

Of course, a big tournament lands at Caesars in a few weeks, a World Series of Poker Circuit Event.

The high-stakes action of the World Series of Poker, the richest poker event on the planet, will ignite the Caesars Palace Poker Room, April 22 to May 2.

The World Series of Poker Circuit schedule for Caesars Palace will include nine tournament events, with buy-ins ranging from $175 up to $5,000 for the no-limit Texas Hold’Em finale. The winner of the $5,000 championship will receive cash plus a $10,000 buy-in to the World Series of Poker Main Event at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas next July.

"The energy and excitement that a World Series of Poker event brings to the Caesars Palace poker room is incredible," said Caesars Palace Poker Room Manager, Jim Pedulla. "We expect great poker action from the first day all the way through to the final table."

Registration begins April 22 for all events. All tournaments begin at noon unless otherwise noted. Single table satellites for all events will run everyday from 9 a.m. to 3 a.m. Media wishing to be credentialed to cover any of the events should contact Ken Langdon with Caesars Palace PR at the email listed above. Wireless Internet access will be available for journalists filing on deadline. The complete schedule of events is listed below.
