Bay 101 Open series coming in August

Poker action at the Bay 101 Casino, “San Jose’s Place to Play,” has been lively and competitive as usual. Whether playing limit or no-limit, the cash games are always full of non-stop action.

Limit games from $3/6 to $80/160, and no-limit games of $1/2/2, $2/3/5 and $5/10/10 are spread daily.

Bay 101’s Summer Madness series just finished up, with all events showing an increased turnout from last year. The $550 main event showed the biggest increase, going from 209 players last year to 292 players this year, creating a prize pool of $146,000. The Summer Madness winner took home more than $40,000.

Players are already looking forward to this year’s Bay 101 Open which will take place Aug. 12 to 19.

This year the tournament series has events for all types of players, with buy-ins ranging from $120 to $1,080. The highly anticipated Omaha High/Low 8-or-Better is on the schedule again this year, and should produce a great turnout once again. Bay 101 will also have a partners tournament, which is one of their most popular tournaments every year.

The Bay 101 Open Main Event is again a $1,080 buy-in with two starting days. Players who get eliminated on Day 1A have the option to play again on Day 1B. Last year this event drew 491 players, creating a prize pool of $491,000.
