Commerce CasinoThere is $1.2 million in guaranteed prize money up for grabs at the 19-day Commerce Hold’em Series that will run between now and September 17. Buy-ins begin as low as $120 and for the first time, Commerce Casino in Los Angeles, CA has included two hugely popular multi-day start events on the tournament schedule.

One with a $500,000 guarantee and one with a $300,000 guarantee, that allow players to enter or re-enter on any of the opening days. Players can opt into the $300,000 event for just $120 and the winner will take home $100,000. The first multiple day entry event attracted 2,637 players and the champion was Jorge Lara, who took home $104,230 after investing just $220 for a buy-in.

“If you are a hold’em enthusiast, you can’t get better than this three-week tourney at Commerce Casino,” said Tournament Director Matt Savage. “There are no other diversions, just straight unadulterated hold’em action with low buy-ins and high guarantees. But we continue to mix up the format so it stays challenging and fun for our players. We look forward to our second straight Hold’em Series September success.”
