As the World Series of Poker continues to whittle the field down to a final table, Harrah’s Entertainment has announced its 2009-2010 WSOP Circuit schedule.

The coming Circuit of poker tournaments travels to 11 different Harrah’s-owned properties across the country, beginning with a return to the well-attended Horseshoe Hammond (Indiana) venue in suburban Chicago in October, 2009 and concluding with the traditional final WSOPC stop in New Orleans, in May of 2010.

Harrah’s owns the World Series of Poker, which it purchased in 2004.

The new WSOPC season introduces an all-new stop for the series – at Harrah’s St. Louis in April of 2010 – and stops at no single Harrah’s property more than once.

The only city to see the WSOPC visit twice will be Atlantic City, which serves much of the East Coast, with separate WSOPC stops at Harrah’s Atlantic City in December, 2009 and Caesars Atlantic City in March, 2010.

In addition, the 2009-2010 schedule features a compression of WSOPC stops in the spring months preceding the 2010 World Series of Poker, with the Circuit stops moving at times from one locale to another without even a day’s break in between.
