Joining the bandwagon of casinos reopening during the pandemic with live poker is Sahara Las Vegas that just made the big announcement about their live poker tournament. Furthermore, the facility has been preparing itself since June to reinstate poker, and the early measures have been a success.
The Poker room will be hosting No-Limit Hold’em Tournaments that will now run every Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. In all, the weekly event features 24 levels. The ante will be generated based on the big blind and it will be only pasted before the big blind as well. The small blind begins at 100 but will start going up as soon as the forth level. Each tournament player will begin with 20,000 tournament chips and a $100 buy-in, that will go directly to the prize pool.
