The 22nd and final stop of the 2013-2014 World Series of Poker Circuit season takes players to Harrah’s New Orleans from May 8-19. There are two automatic entries into the $1,000,000-added WSOP National Championship: – the winner of the $1,675 Main Event held May 16 through 19 along with the Casino Champion, the player earning the most points during the 12 ring event series. There are 50 at-large seats for the highest point earners during the WSOP-C, meaning several players are trying to play their way in or solidify their spot in the National Championship.
The last two players currently on the right side of the WSOP National Championship bubble are Arkadiy Tsinis and Jason Schwartz, who both sit at 127.5 points. Tsinis currently holds the 49th spot due to having more earnings than Schwartz. If multiple players occupy the final spot, then the tiebreaker is earnings during the WSOP-C season. There are currently 23 players within 15 points (the value of a ninth-place finish in WSOP-C ring events) with dozens of players within 50 points, the amount earned by the winner of any WSOP-C ring event outside of the Main Event.
This edition of Kevmath Approved highlights some of the players looking to earn their seats into the WSOP National Championship in Atlantic City.
Andrew Spears – 137.5 points (42nd place)
Seated right in between Kessler and @dude904 in the Chester main. Would anyone blame me if I punted my stack intentionally?

Wow. Trying to book rooms for Harrahs NOLA. My options are to sell a kidney or pay $1k to sleep in someone's bathtub. Why so 'spensive?!?!

Lance (Cord) Garcia – 80 points (130th place)
Back to Houston for a day or two before hitting this last circuit. Denver was a sick place to see but I didn't get done what I came here for
