If you were told you have a chance to start your 2k17 with a good chunk of $40k in your pocket, what would you say? You’d probably ask yourself what do you have to do, and then, if you’re smart, you’d go to the Silks Poker Room at Tampa Bay Downs. Because, from January 19th through the 22nd, they will be hosting a Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament with a $40,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool!

Start Your 2k17 with a Chance to Win a Share of $40k!

It’s a two-day tournament with “Day 1” stretched out from the 19th until the 21st. Within that time there will be five flights. Like preliminaries in any other tournament, the only difference is the time they’re held. “Flight 1” will be at 6 PM, January 19th. “Flight 2” will be at 1 PM, January 20th, and “Flight 3” will be at 6 PM that same day. “Flight 4” and “Flight 5” will be on January 21st with the first at 1 PM and the second at 6 PM. Whichever one you choose to escape to, it’s a $300 buy-in, and you’re given 20,000 chips. 

The top 12% of each flight, or whoever makes it level 17 of that day, will automatically make it into “Day 2” and play at 1 PM on January 22nd. Playing with the chips won from “Day 1” play will continue until there is a champion, or until the table decides to split the pot! You can also sign up to play multiple flights (each at $300 buy-in) and if you make it to “Day 2” in other flights, move ahead with the biggest stack of chips.

Odds are good that person could be you! 

Come claim your chance to win, no matter what happens you’ll have a great time and a great story to start off 2017. Remember parking is always absolutely free at Silks Poker Room!
