Championship Event Results
All tournaments begin at noon unless otherwise noted.
Satellites, an optional preliminary stage, provide the chance to gain tournament entry at a greatly reduced price. The two types offered are Single Table and Super Satellite.
Single Table Satellites are held daily from 8am to 2am. Players outlasting the opponents at their table will receive tournament entry. These minature tournaments typically last about 90 minutes. There will be approximately 2,000 of the seat-producing freezouts over the course of the tournament.
Super satellites are multi-table tournaments staged nightly at 7:30pm. All players making the final table win a seat in the Championship Event, cash or both. As many as ten seats have been awarded on a single night, since rebuys are permitted during the first hour of play. The seats won in these events are non-transferable and non-negotiable. The normal charge for entry is $220.
Regular cash games are played around the clock with buy-ins ranging from $20 to $10,000 or more. In all, over 60 tables will be in play, with higher limit games located in the tournament area and smaller limit games in the main poker room.
Players bringing a cashier's check will want to allow one full banking day for verification. Customers
may place cash on deposit at either of the Horseshoe's two cashier's cages.
Many insiders are aware of the 30% tax on gross winnings of non-resident aliens that is
imposed according to U.S. tax laws. There is some good news here, however. A close examination
of the various tax treaties has revealed that a total of at least fifteen countries are
exempt from the normal 30% withholding required by tax codes. Tax treaties supersede tax code.
This means that residents of these countries will avoid all tax burden from any form of gaming while
in the United States merely by requesting treaty exemption on form 1001. A passport may be
requested for verification of residence.
The updates list of countries for which this option is available:
Each level will last 25 hands. Tables completing the current level will recess until all tables have played the required number of hands.
A fouled or improperly set hand forfeits the maximum loss to each active opponent.
For fields of under 50, the five place pay-out table will be used. For 50 or more, eight places will be paid.
