Insiders reign at Livermore Casino

On May 8 Livermore Casino celebrated its 10th anniversary with a daylong party. Raffles were held hourly, with customers winning from $500 to $1,000. At noon there was a full lunch buffet, followed by another buffet in the evening for dinner.

Livermore Casino gave away over $15,000 cash and toasted in celebration with their loyal customers of 10 years.

The casino’s Insider Main Event was held June 23, where 40 finalists from the recent four-month qualifying series of tournaments battled it out to take home their share of over $15,000.

In the end, the last 14 players decided to chop, resulting in a larger number of winners (and happy tournament players). First and second place went to Carlos Aviles and Demsu Jemaneh.

The next series is already underway, so be sure to get in on the action.
