Cannery poker rooms combine for $10K freeroll

Jan 5, 2016 3:00 AM

The Cannery and Eastside Cannery poker rooms join forces for a $10,000 Mega Freeroll Poker Tournament to be held on April 17, starting at noon.

Players have from now through March 31 to qualify with a minimum of 60 hours needed. The $10K grand prize pool is based on 80 qualifiers (40 from each property) and will be adjusted to $125 per player with less than 80 qualifying. Details can be found in both poker rooms.

The Eastside Cannery poker room is located next to the casino’s sportsbook. It is a smoke free environment with a professional and courteous staff. The comp system is simple and easy to understand. Players get $1 for every hour of play logged with a players’ C.A.N. Club card with no limits.

Primarily, the Eastside Cannery poker room offers limit hold’em cash games with a small core of local players often joined by tourists. No-limit Texas Hold’em is also available on request and players are encouraged to ask management if wishing to start an Omaha or stud game. A $3 max rake applies to all cash games.
