Downtown Grand to Host $30,000 Blackjack Tournament

In honor of our country’s finest presidents, the Downtown Grand will play host to the fairly sizable Red, White, and Blackjack tournament. The casino is touting a $30,000 prize pool, with $15,000 going to the winner. An OCD inducing buy-in of $199 will gain you access to the tournament, which runs from February 20th – 22nd. More details can be found on their promotions page.

Tournaments like these are a great way to enjoy some gambling while limiting the risk to your bankroll.  Keep in mind though, that when it comes to tournament success, you may have to modify your play and forgo basic strategy. I actually discussed slot and blackjack tournaments in episode 11 of the podcast.

Have you every played in a blackjack tournament? I’d love to hear about your experience.
