Trump Plaza begins PokerTek Tournaments starting tonight!
I find it odd that Trump Plaza didn’t announce this sooner. Personally, I find it bad marketing that it was announced on the day that they started running it. However, the good news is that Trump Plaza is running free rolls, something you don’t often see in Atlantic City.
Nothing is given away free anymore, just listen to the slot players walking along the Boardwalk complaining about the lack of comps they receive. I read it in the paper, so it’s true.
Anyway, Trump Plaza started tournaments today on its PokerPro machines and will run tournaments through Sept. 5. According to the press release, players are invited to play in twice-daily $1000 free-rolls each day at noon and 8pm. Starting September 6th, a full tournament schedule will be in effect, with daily Hold'em tournaments at 11:30 am ($50+5) and 7:30 pm ($70+7 Friday and Saturday, $50+5 Sunday - Wednesday), and a $50+5 Omaha tournament every Thursday at 7:30pm. (I’ll update my tournament calendar eventually to include this along with the new Harrah’s tournament schedule).
