Anyone who busts within the first hour can take advantage of a $40 re-buy that, along with the $5 gratuity, is good for another 9,500 chips. There is also a $20 add-on for 3,500 more chips at the end of the third round.

Friday costs $55 but has a $2,500 guarantee. Saturday’s guarantee is $1,500 for a $35 buy-in.
