The Atlantis Casino Resort in Reno will be one of the major stops on the Card Player Poker Tour again in 2014. Other legs of the tour include the Bicycle Club in California, Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas Western Caribbean cruise, Foxwoods in Connecticut, and Best Bet in Florida.
Last year the Atlantis hosted the Card Player main event as part of their 3rd annual All-In Poker Tournament. This year, the 2014 event starts March 20 with a series of $50 satellites for the $50,000 guaranteed $340 buy-in No-limit Texas Hold’em bounty tournament. Other individual tournaments run as low as $120, culminating in the March 28, $125,000 guaranteed prize-money main event. Special room rates are available for tournament players who call the poker room at 775-825-4700. This year’s main event will be a three-day, $1,100 buy-in Texas Hold’em tournament to crown a new champion.
The Card Player Poker Tour (CPPT) is a series of live poker tournaments founded and supported by Card Player Media. The tour features live web broadcast of final table events, a players’ points system and, a season-ending CPPT Championship for the tour's best players.
The beauty of the Card Player Poker Tour is that each stop is part of an existing tournament that already have a following, and features buy-ins that many players can afford, unlike larger poker tournaments that demand $3,000 to $10,000 buy-ins for final events. Reno itself has produced more than its fair share of professional players like Freddie Deeb, Hans “Tuna” Lund and Jennifer Harman, so don’t be afraid to book time to be in Reno for the Atlantis All-In Poker Tournament in March. You just might be the next champion of the Card Player Poker Tour!
