For the previous year, the World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOP) in 2011-2012 has entertained seventeen stops across the whole United States of America. The PokerNews Reporting Team was everywhere Live except in one of the halts, and will also be available at Harrah’s New Orleans in this coming weekend. The last championship on the agenda before this year’s 1 dollar million National Championship is in the month of July.

In acknowledgement of the prosperous year, everyone asked members of the team to provide their view on their favored World Series of Poker Circuit’s stops. Donnie Peters who is the Global Live Reporting Manager says that everybody is aware that there is exactly no such better place for an event of poker event to be held than the hub of the world of poker, Las Vegas. Almost each year, the World Series of Poker Circuit halts in Sin City at Caesars Palace and it has never let anyone down. So even this year it was another fantastic year for the World Series of Poker Circuit events held in the charming city of Las Vegas and people loved to flock there.

The Caesars Palace stop in the city of Las Vegas is an excellent place purely because it is almost always the hub of events with the who’s who in the field of poker. With several players living in Las Vegas and not very often wandering to the other events, the halt in Las Vegas runs to be the only one they will play yearly. When one walks through the championship room, each and every table is full of 4, 5 even 6 known players. The field is undeniably one of the largest in the tour. It is also fabulous to see the individuals in the field and local Vegas grinders getting the scope to play with outstanding players. This makes the event great fun which is never ever short of excitement.
