Buffalo Thunder has two special no-limit hold’em bounty tournaments (Oct. 8 and Oct. 22) with $100 entry and $10 bounties. Also, a $100 Omaha/8 tournament on Oct. 12 will be sweetened with $100 added to each table. The $150 Last Saturday of the Month deepstack on Oct. 25 offers 15K chips.
SANTA ANA STAR CASINO: During Monday and Thursday night football, the poker room is giving away footballs and/or jerseys signed by Troy Aikman, John Elway and Peyton Manning.
ISLETA CASINO: Player Reward drawings on Thursday nights in October bring $200 for each winner. There’s also a 94 Rock tournament beginning Oct. 15, with a $25 buy-in and $100 bounty on a DJ from 94 Rock. Each weekly winner is awarded entry into the final on Nov. 19.
INN OF THE MOUNTAIN GODS: The popular Sunday hold’em tournament continues this month with a $75 buy-in. Last time I played, the three top winners chopped for nearly $800 each.
SANDIA RESORT AND CASINO: Look for Sunday and Tuesday $40 tournaments and Thursday $65 bounty events ($20 on each player). But Oct. 30 is the $125 Big Boo Mystery Bounty with $75 bounties and $100 in bounties on 10 random players.
