Who has Hold em Tournaments downtown I know the Nugget does put is there any more?
The only rooms running regular tournaments downtown are Binions and Golden Nugget. I find any of the ones at Binions to be too small and fast for my liking. I recommend the $100 Sunday at GN if you're there on a Sunday.
I did the Binions 2 p.m. tournament last November. Well, I tried to. Only one other person signed up.
Binions and Golden Nugget is it for downtown tournaments. In fact, that's it for downtown poker, save for the two tables of 1-3-6 spread limit hold 'em at the El Cortez. The highlight of that game is sitting at the same table with Jackie Gaughan himself.
the weekend 2pm tourney at binions are pretty good and normally have aminimum guarenteed payout - that attracts a lot of people. last time I was there the saturday 2pm was down to the final table at 10pm!!
GN is a $65 tourney w/ a $40 rebuy OR addon--so essentially a $105 tourney.
You start w/ $4500 chips + 4K addon. 20 min. blinds. It is decent; we have done well here--lots of tourists, drunks.
Binions 10AM & 8PM tourneys are $60, 6K chips but 15 min. blinds. The 2PM tourneys have excellent structure--20 min. blinds for first 3 levels then 30 min. blinds and you start w/ 20K in chips (and blinds start at 25/50). $80 M-F, $125 S/S. Tougher field, lots of locals.
