Once again the Second Saturday $220 Deep Stack no-limit Hold’em tournament was a hit at Capitol Casino. Fielding a total of 96 entries the prize pool totaled $19,200 for this monthly event. At the end of more than eight hours of play they were down to the final three when a chop was agreed upon.
The three tough Sacramento area players were led by Richard D. (Duff) who, after being down to 2,500 chips late in the game, went on a mad rush to chip up and take a commanding lead. He received $4,225 with Jim C. taking $4,050 and Charles rounded out the chop receiving $3,500.
The majority of the final table tournament players received their seat by winning a weekday $30 buy-in tournament at Capitol Casino in which the casino adds a $220 seat for the second Saturday event to the winner of the weekday tournament. The weekday tournaments at Capitol Casino are a great place to play, with first place averaging around $1,100 plus the free $220 seat added, making for a great tournament. The total prize pool for the weekday tournaments averages about $3,500 for a buy-in of only $30.
With the success of the Deep Stack event on the second Saturday of every month, Capitol Casino decided it was time to make other tournaments on the weekends more attractive to the customer. They added a Bounty Tournament on the third Saturday with a $150 buy-in and $50 bounties. The feedback on the bounty tournament has been very positive, with some players pulling in as many as six or seven bounties and there’s still enough left on the back end for a very lucrative prize pool.
