Gunning for pros!

Mar 12, 2007 3:25 AM

Coming up at the end of the month, the Gold Coast poker room will host its annual Beat the Pros No Limit Texas Hold’em tournament, March 30-April 1.

Not only is the tourney exciting with the bounties placed on the participating pros, but it’s affordable as well.

Buy-ins are $100 plus $20 on Friday and Saturday, and $150 plus $20 on Sunday. Overall, there should be 14 pros with a bounty of $300 each (six on Friday/Saturday and eight on Sunday).

Gold Coast regulars will also have a chance to win a seat by playing live action poker. Daily drawings are held this month (through March 29) at 5 a.m., 11 a.m., 5 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Drawing tickets are given away every hour on the hour. Players must be present to win.

Next week we’ll have more details as to which pros will be participating.

Complete details are in the Gold Coast poker room.

In other action, Caesars Palace now has a $330 Saturday afternoon No Limit Hold’em Tournament.

Players in the 3:30 tourney start with 7.500 in chips, and satellites are available.
