This January, the Card Player Poker Tour will make its first ever trip to Black Hawk, Colorado to the Golden Gates Casino and Poker Parlour for a $600 buy-in event that runs from Jan. 19-21.

“Playing poker in the Golden Gates Blackhawk poker room is like playing in your best friend’s home game,” says Golden Gates poker room manager, Nathan “Cage” Yanchunis.

The Golden Gates Casino poker room under Yanchunis has turned Black Hawk into a premier poker destination by hosting poker series from the Mid-States Poker Tour, Heartland Poker Tour and now the CPPT. The Poker Parlour is also home to the Colorado Poker Championship, which just wrapped up this December.

CPPT players in this tournament will enjoy a healthy 30,000 starting stack and generous blind levels. There are two starting flights, Jan. 19 and Jan. 20, and the final table is Jan. 21.

Golden Gates’ 17-table room with expanded capability for tournaments affords their players a unique customer service experience. Yanchunis has implemented a series of daily and weekly promotions resulting in a loyal base which provides great action. The “high hand” promotions are attainable and thus keeps the frequent pay-offs in the room’s poker economy. A $1 – $100 spread limit mix Omaha high and Omaha eight-or-better is dealt daily along with traditional Hold ‘em games. The log-cabin design with exposed wood and stonework complement the leather chairs to bring a warmth to the spacious and bright room.

The poker room is open Monday through Thursday, 9a.m. – 4 a.m. and 24 hours a day Friday through Sunday. Players can earn cash back with the VIP rakeback program, which awards $100, $150 or $200 for playing 20, 30 or 40 hours in a given week. Players can use comp dollars in any of the casino’s bars, restaurants, cafes or even for table-side dining.

From David Chiu to Paul Wasicka to Jeremy Ausmus to 2016 WSOP Colossus winner Benjamin Keeline, Colorado has produced world class competitive poker players. Who’s next? Add your name to the list and suit up for the 2018 Card Player Poker Tour event coming soon at the Golden Gates Casino in Black Hawk.
