Scenic Rincon worth the drive

A little break for L.A. players.If you have the yearning for a change go to Rincon for the Circuit Event managed by Harrahs. The team are very experienced. Jimmy Somerfield, Bill Bruce and Nolan Dalla are all on hand, on the stage, to ensure the tournament runs smoothly. Judging by the snail like eliminations at the final table today I assume the structures are sound also.

Today the schedule was as follows: NLHE $300, Omaha8 $200, Crazy Pineapple $100.

After a conversation about Zenyatta with TD Jimmy Somerfield he asked if I wanted anything just ask. Unfortunately, the buffet is closed for renovation. Don’t despair buffet lovers as nearby Valley View has a comp buffet for first time visitors, of gambling age.

The tournament has its own room away from the groans of all the slot players.

Frankie O’Dell, Robert Durant and the two Todds Zachary and Lyons played the Omaha. Eileen from Burnley Lancashire played the NLHE and Vince Burgio was at the final table.Everyone else was a stranger to me.

Later in the week they have a $300 PLO8 and a $200 HORSE tournament.Everything else is NLHE. The ME is a $5k buy in and has attracted the likes of Chris Ferguson, Daniel Negreanu and Max Pescatori in the past.

Todays winner was Ethan Van Klavereen who collected $15k for his $300 buy in.
