Coushatta Casino Resort hosted the its Fall Classic on Sept. 24-28 in its 20-table poker room. The short series culminated with the multiday $1K main event, which drew 109 players, paying 12 spots. In the end, J.P. Kolb of Louisiana and Matt Beisner of Texas chopped for $19,665 each.
“I spoke with many of the tournament players and most seemed pleased with the series overall,” tournament director Danny Wade said. “This was a little different than our normal7 Clans Poker Series that Coushatta holds periodically, but I feel we met our goal of offering variety to our players. We are looking to host some bigger buy-in tournaments in December, so keep a lookout for that on our website and mobile app.”
Event 1 was a $300 Survivor with 173 entries. Eighteen players were set to win $2,517 each, but just before reaching the money bubble, the final 20 players opted to chop for $2,265.
Event 2 ($500) attracted 147 players as Texas rounder Au Ngo scored $14,758 for his dominant victory.
