On March 3, the Ladies International Poker Series will hold its first tournament at Viejas Casino. The “Luck be a Lady” tournament will start at 10 a.m. The buy-in is $65, has 5K chips and levels will be 20 minutes.

PALA WINTER OPEN: This weeklong event was still running as we went to press, so results will be in our next issue. Pala is hosting its “$5K Nooner” tournament every Sunday. Though the tournament starts at noon, registration is open until 2 p.m. The buy-in is $65 with a $5K guarantee.

Players will start with 5K chips and there will be a $5 optional staff bonus for 2K more chips and a one-time $25 rebuy during the first four levels for 3K chips. Blinds will be 30 minutes for the first four levels and late and re-entries will be allowed for four levels. At the fifth level, blinds will be 20 minutes.
