“No other local tournaments can even come close to comparing to the starting chip stack and gradual blind level progression that we have,” explained Michael Sweeney, Marketing Director for Stars Casino. “I’ve been playing poker for over 15 years, and I have witnessed how local casinos structure low-quality poker tournaments as a marketing ploy to just get people through their doors. Here at Stars Casino, we have structured our tournaments and cash games to the utmost level of quality—for the players and by the players!”
