The biggest poker game in Tampa this month is at the Silks Poker Room at Tampa Bay Downs! From April 20-22, Silks will hold a no-limit Texas hold'em tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $40,000!

Action gets underway with four "Day 1s", starting at 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Friday, April 20, and Saturday, April 21. The buy-in is $340, and each competitor begins with 20,000 in chips. Everyone who still has chips left at the end of any "Day 1" flight moves on to Day 2 on Sunday, April 22. From there, the remaining players face off until only one player is left standing with all the chips. Players who finish in the money will split a prize pool of at least $40,000 -- it could be even higher depending on how many players enter the tournament.

Whether you're playing in a big-money tournament, joining one of their daily tournaments, or looking for a relaxed cash game, Silks Poker Room is the place to be for any card player. Silks offers an array of limit and no-limit Texas hold 'em games with a variety of stakes and buy-ins, plus Omaha and stud poker tables. Plasma TVs throughout the room air live sporting events and simulcasted horse racing from around the country, and nearly every table has a view of the finish line outside for added thrills when you're not in a hand.

Silks pays out high hand bonuses throughout the day. In fact, if you have the highest hand out of all winning hands between 10:00 a.m - 1:00 p.m. or 10:00 p.m. - 1:00 a.m. between now and April 19, you win a free entry into the next weekend's tournament! Silks also has a full bar and grill with happy-hour specials, free soft drinks, and even tableside massages available.
