The Ante Up Poker Tour (AUPT) has visited Arizona’s Gila River Hotels & Casinos – Vee Quiva, and now they’re headed to its sister property. From November 11-16, Wild Horse Pass will host its first AUPT stop.
“As this is our first tournament series at Wild Horse Pass, everyone here is extremely excited to host this event. We’ve put a lot of thought into creating this series because we want to keep true to what our room provides, as well as showcase the talents of our experienced dealers,” said poker room manager Susan Pendarvis.
She continued: “In creating the tournament series, we wanted to put together a structure that many tournament players desire. Here at Gila River Hotels & Casinos, we pride ourselves on listening to our players, and our players wanted more chips, more play, and longer levels. I feel that we meet all those goals with this tournament.”
The Ante Up Winter Poker Classic series consists of three events, culminating with a two-flight $400 buy-in Main Event with a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool. PokerNews will be on hand to live report the action from that tournament. Also, the winner of the Main Event will appear on the cover of Ante Up Magazine and get an entry in the 2020 Ante Up World Championship Main Event.
“For the Main Event, players start with 20,000 chips with 30-minute blind levels throughout the tournament and we have every level possible in the structure. We are also providing the big blind ante as well,” Pendarvis continued. “We wanted to keep the tournament at a price point that would be manageable for our everyday tournament players as well as a price point where the overlay was very enticing to more seasoned players to come and play. Our poker room is warm and friendly, and we look forward to highlighting what we have to offer at Wild Horse Pass.”
