Live Tournies and Structures
I'm in SoCal, with many casino's around to play at. In my case I have Hollywood Park, Hustler, Hawaiian Gardens, Bicycle, and Commerce. There is another casino very very close to me, walking distance even, but the marketing folks there were unable to make poker work there and when I stopped in yesterday, they only had one cash poker table going. Baccarat
(or something similar), and Pai Gow are more popular there. Disappointing as the place has so much potential. Only place in town with a Metro Station in its back yard! I really wonder about them there.....
Anyway, I played, and enjoyed a tourney last Friday at the Hawaiian Gardens Casino that was a free buy-in with multiple rebuys and a bigger add-on. 3K guarantee. I FT'd it and covered my costs. It is a regular Friday game.
For Thursday, with essentially the same structure, except there is a $20 buy-in and increased guarantee is this game;
FWIW, all live games have terrible structure compared to Online Poker Tourneys.
