It’s Gold Rush time once again at Colma’s Lucky Chances Casino with six big events on the docket Nov. 12 to 20.

They kick off on Sunday, Nov. 12 with a $600 buy-in event featuring a $40,000 first place guarantee. Players receive 15,000 chips and play 30-minute rounds. (Play begins at 9:30 a.m. in all of the tournaments unless otherwise noted.) The following day’s event has the same structure of chips and rounds, but the buy-in is $350 with $20,000 guaranteed to first place.

Tuesday is a $200 turbo tournament. Starting stacks are 15,000, rounds are 20 minutes, and first place is guaranteed $10,000. Wednesday has the same buy-in, structure, and guarantee as Monday.

The Main Event begins Saturday, Nov. 18 (Day 1A). The buy-in is $1,080 and first place is guaranteed $100,000. Everyone starts with 20,000 chips and they will play 40-minute rounds, until they get down to 11 percent of the field. Day 1B is Sunday and anyone who qualified on Day 1A can still enter to play for an even bigger stack.

Day 2 is Monday, Nov. 20 with a noon starting time. Play will resume from the lowest level finished on either Day 1A or 1B and will continue until a champion is crowned.
