The Ho-Ho Hold’em tournament series kicked off today at the Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens, California. The $100 no-limit hold’em tournament that began today is the first of 19 events that will take place between Thursday, Nov. 20 and Monday, Dec. 8. The no-limit hold’em championship event will take place on Saturday, Dec. 6, and it features a buy-in of $1,000. In addition to no-limit hold’em, the tournament series will also spread tournaments in pot-limit Omaha, limit hold’em, and Omaha eight-or-better. The tournament will also feature the Turkey Shoot $100 no-limit hold’em shootout on Thanksgiving. The Bicycle Casino has also added a number of guaranteed-prize-pool, deep-stack, and player-appreciation tournaments to the schedule that you can check out in the link below.

Pamela Rich won the $100 Queen of Queens no-limit hold’em tournament, and Rayna Davis won the Luck be a Lady special event. David Kim won the $300 Omaha eight-or-better tournament, and Peter Chou won the $1,000 no-limit hold’em championship for $72,800.
