WSOP Circuit National Championship 2014 to be Held at Bally’s Atlantic City

The WSOP Circuit National Championship 2014 will be held at Bally’s in Atlantic City from May 22-24 it was announced this week.  This is the 10th season of the circuit.

With a total of 100 players eligible for qualification, the World Series of Poker today announces how the additional six remaining at-large seats will be awarded.

In May, WSOP.com websites in both Nevada and New Jersey will host an online freeroll tournament in their respective states, where the winner of each tournament will automatically qualify (2 seats total).

A live tournament freeroll will be held at Bally's on Monday May 19 at 6 pm with the winner of the event automatically earning a seat into the WSOP National Championship (1 seat).

The next day, Bally’s Atlantic City will then host a $1,125 “last-chance” two-day structured live No-Limit Hold’em tournament, with the winner taking home the lion’s share of the prize pool, but also the final seat awarded into the WSOP National Championship (1 seat).

“We look forward to welcoming the best poker players in the world to Atlantic City and our brand new poker room at Bally’s,” said Kevin Ortzman, general manager of the property. “We are dedicated to making our new room the best in New Jersey, and are excited for players to see all the great things happening in Atlantic City with the convergence of online and land-based gaming.”
