The Poker Room at SAHARA Las Vegas is now home to an all-new No Limit Hold’em Tournament every Saturday at 1 p.m. The weekly tournament features a $120 buy-in and a $100 single rebuy offered until the beginning of the seventh level. Participants must be 21 or over and have a Club 52 card to participate.
Tournament players will receive 20,000 in tournament chips for every $120 buy-in with $100 of each buy-in going directly to the prize pool. Late entries and a single $100 rebuy for 20,000 chips will be allowed until the beginning of the seventh level with 100 percent of each rebuy added to the prize pool. Each level will last 20 minutes with a 10-minute break offered at the completion of every six levels.
The ante will come from the big blind only and will be posted before the big blind. The small blind begins at 100 and will go up beginning at the fourth level. The big blind begins at 100 and will go up each level. There will be 24 levels in total.
Winners will be paid in casino chips or cash. A complete list of rules is available at the Poker Room. To participate, guests must register in person at the Poker Room two hours prior to the tournament start time.
The recently unveiled poker room features seven tables, a 16-foot by nine-foot LED video wall and five additional screens throughout the space. The gaming hotspot is open Sunday through Friday from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. and on Saturdays from noon until 2 a.m. Players are encouraged to reserve their seats online.
Since welcoming back resort guests, SAHARA Las Vegas has followed a comprehensive outline of health and safety protocols under the resort’s SAHARA Cares program. Under this program, a number of contactless solutions were developed to assist with social distancing measures including “Take a Seat” table game reservations. This added feature allows guests to book a seat reservation in advance for select table games including blackjack, roulette and baccarat through the resort’s website. Additional games will be added in the future. This service will support households traveling together so they can make arrangements to play the same live game.
