The WSOP Circuit is set to return to the legendary Bicycle Hotel & Casino in Los Angeles from November 30 through December 15. The series features thirteen gold ring events, with the centerpiece of the whole affair being the 2019 WSOP Circuit Bicycle Casino $1,700 buy-in no-limit hold’em main event, which kicks off with the first of two starting flights beginning on Sunday, Dec. 8 at noon local time.
Players will begin with 30,000 in chips with initial blinds of 100-100. Blind levels will be 40 minutes long throughout the starting days but will increase to 60 minutes in length on day 2. Players can re-enter the event once per starting day, with registration remaining open until the start of level 13 on each starting day.
Those that survive day 2 will return at noon on Wednesday, Dec.11 to play down to a champion. The final table will be streamed on Live At The Bike.
