Choctaw Casino Hosting World Series of Poker

Choctaw Casino in Idabel, Okla., is playing host to the World Series of Poker (WSOP) from Jan. 6 through Jan. 24—the Midwest region’s first World Series of Poker circuit event, reported KXII.com.

“This is a huge poker market that has clamored for high stakes tournament poker, and we’re ecstatic to be hosting a WSOP circuit in this gorgeous property in Durant,” said WSOP Vice President Ty Stewart, reported RoundersRadio.com.

Poker players from around the nation will compete at the event to qualify for the final tournament and grand prize of $500,000.

“It’s big, big money,” said T.J. Cloutier, member of the Poker Hall of Fame, to KXII.com.

Casino Director Steven Loyd told KXII.com that the casino, owned and operated by the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, will reap substantial economic benefits from the tournament, as will the entire community.

“I’m sure our local businesses in Durant, Okla.,  and the surrounding areas will see these people while they’re here, so the entire community will benefit as a whole,” Loyd told KXII.com.

The Choctaw Casino recently completed a 17,000-square-foot renovation and remodeling project, featuring a “unique cultural space that is indigenous to Idabel and inspired by the Choctaw tribe’s native origins, incorporating a rustic, Western mountain-forest theme,” reported Casino City Times.
