One of my favorite ways to relax on the weekend (apart from going to the salon) is to play tournaments. With the WSOP Circuit ending last month at the Bikes casino, the next big tournament series I’m looking forward to is the Cal State Poker Championship in Commerce starting later this month.
The best way to improve my tournament is at Hollywood Park Casino because it is the only casino in town where I can play Omaha tournaments in the afternoon and go straight to Unlimited tournaments at night every Saturday.
The Big O Omaha Tournament $ 2,500 Guarantee in Hollywood Park is a $ 60 purchase with one $ 60 buyback allowed. Players start with 10,000 chips, and can buy back for 15,000 chips visit KaptenPoker.
I thought by drawing seat 3 and table 3 (my favorite sign) I was ahead. I can’t wait to play.
I love it, so the fact that you get a $ 5 meal voucher for a meal during the tournament or $ 10 for a meal while you play cash games on the same day is a nice touch.
Players also get double share jackpot vouchers if they are lucky enough to hit one before 11:59 p.m., on tournament day. But what I especially liked was the group of regulars who played the game, including my husband. I’ve always liked friendly competitions, so I can laugh when I outlive him, like I did this Saturday.
I celebrated too early when I was eliminated in the final table bubble. Boo! But there’s always next week!
After I overcame the disappointment, I looked forward to playing in a $ 3,000 No-Limit Guarantee Hold’em tournament with a $ buy-in and a $ 60 buy-back.
I won all-in with only Ace-high and immediately doubled up to over 20,000 in chips (starting stack was 10,000). Unfortunately, I made up the last three tables, crashing out in 22nd place.
