Cincinnati casino expects 8,000 players at tourney

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati expects more than 8,000 players as it hosts a stop on the popular World Series of Poker traveling tournament starting this week.

The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1elxstu ) reports the action starting Thursday will include the new casino's regular poker room and an event space converted into a 60-table poker room. An estimated $3 million in prize money will be up for grabs in the 12-day event in Cincinnati.

It's one of 22 stops on the tour, which ends in Atlantic City with a national championship in May. The Horseshoe Casino Cleveland will host the competition in March.

Caesars Entertainment holds a stake in the two Ohio casinos and also owns the World Series of Poker.
