2018 World Series of Poker Circuit Bicycle Casino Main Event Starts Saturday

The World Series of Poker Circuit has returned to the legendary Bicycle Hotel and Casino near Los Angeles for their latest tour stop in 2018. The series features twelve gold ring events, with the centerpiece of the whole affair being the WSOP Circuit Bicycle Casino $1,675 buy-in no-limit hold’em main event, which kicks off on Saturday, March 10. The first of two starting flights will get underway at noon local time.

Players will begin with 20,000 in chips with initial blinds of 25-50. 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 day 2 at noon on Monday, Mar. 12.

Those that survive day 2 will return at noon on Tuesday, Mar. 13 to play down to a champion. The final table will be streamed on Live At The Bike.

The March running of the WSOP Circuit main event at the Bicycle Hotel and Casino in 2017 drew a total of 705 entries to create a $1,059,000 prize pool. In the end Dylan Wilkerson emerged victorious with the gold ring and the first-place prize of $216,790.

Other past champions of WSOPC main event at the Bike include the likes of Antonio Esfandiari ($226,785), Jared Jaffee ($211,220), and Freddy Deeb ($171,810), who won the first ever WSOP Circuit main event held at the Casino.
