Now that the dust has settled with establishing casinos in Ohio, the good ol’ player promotions are starting to show up, so here are the high points.
CINCINNATI: The Horseshoe offers daily events, and World Series of Poker Circuit seats are added to every one, with buy-ins starting at $110.
CLEVELAND: Horseshoe’s new poker room manager Karen Kaegin and assistant manager Martin Wendel are bringing many new cash-game promotions, increased comps ($1 per hour) and new tournaments. It has introduced a $2-$5-$10 no-cap game.
COLUMBUS: Hollywood Casino’s tournament schedule has the widest selection of buy-ins, times and play in the state, including Ohio’s first guaranteed prize pools.
TOLEDO: Hollywood Casino offers the state’s largest selection of tournaments for less than $100. There’s a full slate of twice-a-day action for grinders looking to build a bankroll.
CHARITY: A tournament benefiting cancer research and featuring several former Ohio State football and basketball stars will be Aug. 25 at the Blackwell on the Ohio State campus.
The event has a $150 suggested buy-in, with optional high-hand and bounty jackpots available, with a lunch buffet included. Tournament starts at 10:30 a.m. Players get 6K units, and get 1K more by registering before Aug. 24.
