Showboat Poker Tournament Sat. 9/8/07

Showboat in Atlantic City has announced a Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament to be Held on Saturday, September 9, 2007. It is a $20,000 guaranteed tournament. The buy-in is $225.

For $225 they need 89 people to make the tournament. It does not sound like they are risking much, but it does sound like they want to make a splash a big tournament location in AC. Oh, I missed that 1st place alone gets $20K, not the total pot.


Hosted by Alicia Lee, Philly's Hottest Sports Calendar Pinup and Poker Player. Saturday, September 15 starting at 11 a.m. First Place wins $20,000- Guaranteed! Tournament is in the New Orleans Ballroom and tournament play begins at 11 a.m. Register at the Showboat Poker Room now to September 14. You won't want to miss this tournament, and seats are limited.

Buy-in is $225+$25
Start with a $10,000 chip stack
Blinds start at 25/50

From what I have seen posted, you must register by the day before the tournament. I called the poker room (609-343-4686) and asked about this and Kellie said she had been getting a lot of this question and yes, you can register the day of the tournament, but it is limited to 423 players by fire code regulations.
