Don't know much about southern Ms., but in Tunica there are daily tourneys at several casinos. If you can hold out until January, there is a WSOP circuit event at the Grand.

I am in Houma. I know that Cypress Bayou doesn't have any tourneys. They got a nice jackpot going right now. It's at about 150k.

I don't know about any regular tourneys like in Tunica. Tunica is probally to far for me to drive regularly, however, I could make the trip to Lake Charles or Baton Rouge if they got some nice tourneys. Thanks for any help.

Kenny,

Harrah's New Orleans has a Sunday early bird tournament.The buys in alternatte between $120 and $340 You get some play in the 340. The 120 isn't worth it, IMHO.

Everybody and their brother will be in Tunica in January for the two sets of tourneys going on at the Grand and Gold Strike.

If you're interested in live tourneys and are anywhere close it's worth the trip. but book your room ahead of time as the hotels will almost certainly be sold-out.

Lots of the 'famous' players such as Negreneau and Greenstein, etc are around for the $10k events for those who are interested in that kind of stuff too.

But there are many tourneys smaller than that going all the way down to the $175+$25 that is usually held at 5pm daily at the Grand during that stretch as well as 2nd chance tourneys at Gold Strike and all the SNG's and satellites.


It's 3 weeks of poker crazyness in Tunica and it really is a pretty fun time. Jan 4-25 I believe.



As for Tunica tourneys not in January....lots and lots of them. Horseshoe does a good job running their tourneys imo.
Gold Strike isn't bad either although sometimes their structure is faster.


msgaming.net looks like they keep their Tunica poker tourney schedule updated pretty well.

Im thinking of heading to Tunica in January and trying to decide between staying at the Horshoe or Gold Strike. Which place has more mid/high side action (ie $5/$10 - $25/$50 NLHE or PLO) Gold Strike or Horshoe? And if Im there without a car, how hard is it to get from one to the other?

It's about a 25 second walk form the GoldStrike to the Horseshoe maybe 5 mins from poker room to poker room.

I can't speak for January but when I there for the WSOP circut event a couple of weeks ago the grand had 2-5-10 on the button PLO that went off an on and all the bigger games were at the Horseshoe.

This all sounds great. Are all the PLO games 3 blinds? What about the NLHE games?
