CLEVELAND -- The popular World Series of Poker tour is making stops at the new casinos in Cincinnati and Cleveland.

The franchise's newly announced tour includes a Sept. 19-30 stop at the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, and then March 20-31, 2014, at the Horseshoe Casino Cleveland.

Now the casinos will have to figure out how to accommodate the players and the crowd.

The year-old Cleveland casino was bumped from the World Series of Poker tour this year after the Ohio Casino Control Commission rejected plans to play in the ballroom at the adjacent Renaissance Cleveland Hotel.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/184JSAg) reports that Caesars Entertainment, which manages and holds a stake in the two casinos, also owns the World Series of Poker.
