Tournament Specs: $100 Horseshoe tournament buy-in, with a donation of $250 or more to EFF to sign up. Rebuys are unlimited to level 6, with each having a suggested donation of $100 on site. Levels will be fifteen minutes, and the blinds go up at each level. Attendees must be 21+.
Pre-Tournament Clinic: Have you played some poker before but could use a refresher on rules, strategy, table behavior, and general Vegas slang at the poker table? Tarah Wheeler will run a poker clinic from 11 am-11:45 am just before the tournament. Even if you know poker pretty well, come a bit early and help out. Just show up and donate anything to EFF. Make it over $50 and Tarah will teach you chip riffling, the three biggest tells, and how to stare blankly and intimidatingly through someone’s soul while they’re trying to decide if you’re bluffing.
