A live qualifier will be taking place on the 19th of May at Bally’s Atlantic City and then the last opportunity, a $1,125 last chance tournament will take place at Bally’s as well. Bally’s will be hosting each event in the new poker room.

The WSOP National Championship is set to have a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million but organizers believe the event could see as much as $2 million up for grabs. The event will take place over Memorial Day Weekend this May and will be run in the Bally’s poker room, a branded WSOP space.

Organizers explain that the event is held to celebrate the consistent and dedicated players who take part in WOSP events. These players have shown strong performances in the game of poker and this championship is a way to showcase what players can do. The tour currently has five more stops on the tour before moving to the Championship event.
