August is an exciting month for tournament players in Northern California as two of the premier rooms in the area are hosting annual tournament series. Thunder Valley Casino Resort (Lincoln) and Bay 101 (San Jose) are known for attracting players from all over the country.

Thunder Valley will host its Players Championship on Aug. 1-12 with various types of events, including no-limit hold’em, Omaha/8 and H.O.R.S.E.

The series culminates with a $250K guarantee main event ($1,100) with Day 1A, Aug. 8 (4 p.m.), Day 1B, Aug. 9 (4 p.m.) and Day 1C, Aug. 10 (11 a.m.).
