Harrah’s St. Louis, which hosts a World Series of Poker Circuit stop, is set to run a new tournament series Dec. 1-11 with three events each day. The tournament buy-ins will be $125-$565, though the main event will be $1,100. Single-table satellites will be run for several buy-ins and as many as 30 tables can be added to expand capacity.
Poker room manager Denise Taykowski hopes this will become an annual series. Each day will host three tournaments (noon, 5 and 7 p.m.). The noon events will be the bigger buy-in tournaments. Notable events in this group will be the six-max, seniors and ladies tournaments. The 5 p.m. events will be specialty games such as H.O.R.S.E., Omaha/8, PLO and PLO triple chance. Each 7 p.m. event will be a $125 NLHE tournament.
An interesting addition will be the Jack-n-Jill team event, which will consist of a male-female team. The first player will start with half of the starting chips. Players will change each level and the other player will add the second half of the starting chips to the common stack. This will assure both players get a chance to play.
All tournament details are pending final approval of the Missouri Gaming Commission and the schedule is subject to change. For the latest information check harrahsstlouis.com or call (314) 770-7600.
