One of the bigger surprises of the series has been the absence of Raminder Singh (Delray Beach, FL), a player who is in attendance for most every tournament during these seasonal series. At 6:00pm, the ever-popular Tuesday $10K begins, the final "daily" tournament for three weeks (as the Battle At The Beach begins tomorrow). The tournament action begins at 11:00am, as the cards get in the air for the $100 No Limit Hold'em "Monster Stack." The tournament carries with it a $3,000 guaranteed prize pool, and has been one of the most popular "afternoon" events on the daily schedule. The "Monster Stack" returns for the afternoon tournament, a $100 buy-in tournament that offers up a 25,000 starting stack, and a "major-ish" feeling structure with (20) minute levels. These tips and tricks are valuable for any player, but they’re especially valuable if you’re just starting out with the Beautiful Game. A black cat in the game meets you at the very beginning and the first thing you notice is his ruby eye.
Joseph Haigh (Pompano Beach, FL) was the declared winner, taking home the trophy, along with the $1,832 first place prize. Once again, it's an example of the Isle Casino Pompano Park setting itself apart from the "field." Players have the opportunity to enjoy the game for an extended period of time, while comfortably wagering any amount between $3-$300. So Raley, with his attorney, Todd Taylor of Greeley, wanted to argue that poker was a game of skill, not of chance. We were introduced to "Slum Donkey Poker" in one of the first every live blogged events here at the Isle Poker Room, and since then, we've seen great success from members of this group. It's shaping up to be another special event, and all of the action can be found here on the Isle Casino Poker blog. Hawkins took his talents to the Isle Casino Poker Room yesterday, winning his third ever Isle Poker event, taking home the Event 12 ($250 No Limit Hold'em $20,000 GTD) trophy.

Sitting with just over 70,000, Paula is looking to bag chips on one bullet for this event, and eventually add to an already impressive tournament resume. The man behind the creation of the group is currently seated in the field today, as Jack Sumner looks to bag chips with his second bullet fired into the tournament. Jack has over $40,000 in live tournament earnings, including a cash of his own during the most recent WSOPC series at Palm Beach Kennel Club (Event 5 $360 No Limit Hold'em Turbo - 14th Place $928). He then returned to the states to play in the WSOPC at Palm Beach Kennel Club, cashing in Event 10 ($365 No Limit Hold'em Turbo - 14th Place $789). Tournament: The Isle Casino Poker Room now shifts back to the "Daily Tournament Schedule," with one tournament for players this evening (6:00pm), the $100 No Limit Hold'em "Big Stack Turbo" w/ $25 Bounties $5,000 GTD.
The Isle Casino Poker Room takes a short hiatus from the "daily tournament schedule," as the "Battles At The Beach" stands front and center for the next three weeks. There were (16) players crowned "champion" during the 2017 Isle Poker Classic (January 2nd-22nd), an incredible amount of money won from the "Spin To Win" promotion, the introduction of new tournaments to the daily schedule, and that's just naming a few of the highlights to start the year. Because Wednesday's are for the "Money Wheel," and the "Spin To Win" Promotion, affording qualifying players the opportunity to win up to $25,000. The "jackpot" amount is normally $5,000, but if a player's qualifying hand is a "Royal Flush," the jackpot shifts to $25,000. That was just one highlight though, as Maurice added another WSOPC Main Event win later in the year (Palm Beach Kennel Club), getting his hand on an eighth WSOPC ring. It's very similar to the Texas Hold'em that's played in the neighboring poker room, with those at the table getting two cards (including a "dealers" hand), along with a flop, turn, and river (five-card community board). We watched half a row leave their seats and evacuate to the aisle just so two weak bladdered jerks could get through (twice).
