The Golden Nugget in Atlantic City is at it again with promotions to try to set it apart from the rest of the city. With its successful $10K guarantee every Saturday, the Nugget is offering a $2K guarantee on its 10 a.m. weekday tournaments. For the $80, buy-in players can take their shot at a deepstacked, great-structured tournament.
Another great promotion that just kicked off is the King of Cash Player of the Month. The player that logs the most hours in a month at the cash tables will be that month’s King of Cash and the crown comes with a bevy of treats. The King will receive $500, one entry into the Saturday $10K guarantee, one entry into the Sunday $2,012 guarantee and a $100 restaurant gift card. Plus, any high-hand jackpot they win during that month will double the posted amount. Don’t worry if you fail to win the crown; if you log the second-most hours you’ll receive $200 and a tournament buy-in. Third gets $100 and a tournament buy-in. If the free food wasn’t bringing you into the room, the free money is sure to do the trick.
REVEL: On Aug. 18, Revel will be hosting the Justin Shronk Scholarship Fund Memorial Tournament. The buy-in is $215 with rebuys for the first three levels. The fund was established in 2009 after Shronk’s unexpected death. He was a Temple University grad and an integral and much-loved member of the poker media.

Big news out of the Keystone State this month comes from Bensalem as Parx and the World Poker Tour will collaborate in Season XI with the WPT Parx Open Poker Classic on Aug. 10-15. With a buy-in of $3,500, the televised event should draw a big number as poker is alive and well in the Eastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey area.
