Thunder Valley Casino Resort hosts the 2016 World Poker Tour Rolling Thunder tournament March 9 to 16. The WPT Main Event final table will be streamed live in Pano Hall on Wednesday, March 16 starting at 12:00 p.m.
Satellites are already running for this eight event tournament series. The $3,500 Main Event March 12 to 16 will feature eight hour days of play during Day 1 and Day 2.
“This year we have really looked to improve player experience during WPT Rolling Thunder,” said Ben Erwin, Thunder Valley Casino Resort poker room director. “The eight hour play is a game changer. This shorter time of play takes into account that we are the third stop after the LAPC at Commerce Casino and the Shooting Star at Bay 101. The shorter day not only allows players to have additional time to rest and relax, but enjoy the amenities of our AAA 4-Diamond property that features a number of dining options, bars, and spa.”
