The new tournaments will include the 10K Deep Stack at noon on Saturday, Sept. 7, with a $125 buy-in and a $10,000 guarantee, along with the End of the Month 15K (up from 10K) Nooner Championship on Sunday, Sept. 29, with registration until 2 p.m. The 15K will have a $120 buy-in and a $15,000 guarantee with two, optional $25 re-buys or add-ons. The winner's name will be engraved on the Pala Signature Cup and the winner's photo will be published in Card Player Magazine.
The new promotions will include the Sunday/Wednesday High Hand Hour, which will be in play from 2-10 p.m. each Sunday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each Wednesday, except Sept. 25. On Sundays, winners will receive $100 for first place and $50 for second; on Wednesdays, $100 can be won each hour.
The second new promotion will be the Manic Monday Cash Drawings. Players can win $100 each hour from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Entries will be earned for poker hands ranging from a full house to a royal flush and players can earn double entries while playing from 6-10 a.m.
The ongoing cash promotions for September will include Pala's popular Chase for the Dough, which will be in play from midnight on Sept. 1, until midnight on Sept. 30, with a $10,000 prize pool.
