Turlock Poker Room & Casino will hold its 2015 Championship Series Oct. 1 to 11—nine tournaments highlighted by a Main Event with a $550 buy-in and $75,000 guaranteed.
“Patrons absolutely love our Championship Series; the player friendly structure, prize pools and bragging rights make our annual Championship Series unique,” said director of casino relations Mario Alvarez. “Becoming the series champion gives the winner a year in the life of a poker pro.”
The overall points winner of the series will also receive the series championship trophy, custom TPR jacket, professional photo shoot, a banner hanging inside the casino and complimentary TPR tournament entries from Nov. 1, 2015 to Oct. 31, 2016.
All of the events are no-limit Hold’em except Event 6 which is Omaha High-Low Split. Event 1 is a $180 bounty tournament on Oct. 1, followed by Event 2, a two-day contest for $230. Event 3 is a mega satellite to the Main Event. Event 4 is $75—a “Raise It” tournament where the first player to act must raise.
Event 5 is another bounty tournament for $100, then comes the $125 Omaha tournament. Event 7 is also a bounty tournament for $115 with $50 going to the prize pool and $50 towards the bounties.
Next up is the Main Event for $550 with Day 1s on Oct. 8, 9, and 10, culminating with Day 2 on Sunday, Oct. 11. Last up is Event 9, another 50/50 bounty tournament for $115.
“I’m really excited for our patrons to play in a fun and diverse series,” added Alvarez. “Tournament director & casino operations manager Adam Sanchez has developed an exciting 2015 Championship Series worth traveling for.”
