There will also be opportunities to satellite into the main event, through two separate tournaments.

John Rochfort, Jamul Casino's Poker Innovator and Manager, said: "Jamul Casino has a very robust poker program and some of the best facilities in Southern California.

“The San Diego Poker Classic has helped boost the Casino's popularity and I'm anticipating the upcoming luxury, boutique hotel will kick-up our poker stakes even more.

"Good luck to our aspiring winners!"
