Fun and games
Fun and games at the Horseshoe Casino for the next 10 days -- The Magnolia State Poker Tournament means poker, poker and more poker.
The first event is interesting. It has Friday as Day IA then Saturday as Day IB and the players who advance from each day combine on Sunday for the final. The prize pool is guaranteed to be $40,000 and there is a guaranteed seat to the Main Event at a tournament in January that is paid for by Horseshoe (i.e. does not come out of the prize pool). There's also a twist. If you play today and get knocked out, you can reenter tomorrow.
I notice there's a Senior Event on Thursday and the age is 40 or older. I need to check my driver's license, but I believe I qualify, so I'll be playing in that one as well as the one today (and maybe a few others).
