Poker professionals and non-professionals along with poker celebrities travel to each location to compete. Celebrity sports broadcaster Lon McEachern, the ambassador of the tour and the host of The World Series of Poker on ESPN, will be present and participating in the events on April 8 and 9.
The tournaments are open to both professional and novice players. Buy-in is $385 for the Paso Robles leg of the tour. Lower buy-in separate tournaments will be available the first two days, April 8 and 9. Buy-in amounts for those tournaments are $90 and $125.
