Sky Ute offers plenty of choices in poker



Often, poker rooms are faced with finding innovative ideas and promotions to ensure a steady stream of regular games are played. One of these rooms, Sky Ute Casino in Ignacio, Colo., has a smattering array of promotions and choices for its players.

The poker room boasts a high-hand jackpot that increases every three hours throughout the day on Wednesdays, a solid dealer’s choice Omaha game on Thursdays, a bevy of tournaments scattered throughout the weekends and a wildly popular bounty-rebuy tournament on Mondays.

GOLDEN GATES: As for the Eastern slope, the Heartland Poker Tour returns to the Golden Gates Casino in Blackhawk, Colo. I will update the winners in the next issue. Don’t expect to see many open seats in the Golden Gates room during the stretch between Feb. 13-23, but do expect many players salivating.
