WSOP Circuit hits town this weekend

Friday kicks off another chapter with poker’s amazing journey to Chicago. Back in 1970 nobody expected the World Series of Poker to ever leave Fremont Street. When the cards hit air in 1971 Texas Holdem was only legal in the state of Nevada. It would have been beyond any poker player’s wildest dreams that someday the Horseshoe would be next door neighbors to the city of Chicago. I have always said “Chicago is a poker town”. Friday at high noon when the cards hit the air the Horseshoe will prove me right again.

Since 8/8/08 poker has only gotten bigger and better in the Chicago Area. On Monday 10/25 the Horseshoe will raise the bar again with Chicago’s first nationally televised Regional Championship. Now the big name pros have a reason to flock to Hammond Indiana. This tournament along with other tournaments will be part of the $1,000,000 WSOPC National Championship.
