World Series of Poker comes to Tunica | Arts & Culture
The World Series of Poker will return to Tunica at the end of January for its eighth year.
Harrah’s Tunica will host the circuit event from January 24, 2013, through February 4.
There will be 12 gold ring events, but the main event starts on Friday, February 1.
Since 2005, Harrah’s officials say $32 million in prize money has been given out to winners.
In 2012, main event winner Kurt Jewell took home almost $200,000 from a field of more than 600 others.
Points from the events can qualify players for a seat at the national event in New Orleans.
