Thinking bout it... anyone has a link to the structures of all the tournaments? I can't find it on the beau website.

fyi to the Tourney director or other Beau poker room employees, when I go to this link on Chrome, the buyins are not properly set against the applicable tourneys, ie the 1500 event looks like a turbo!

Not to be outdone by the WSOPc stops at IP and Bossier City, there is yet another series for us Southerners. Schedule looks fun, with the Heads Up event being a unique event.

Hi all - I am going to head down to the Gulf Coast Poker Championship at the Beau over Labor Day. I'm planning to try to satellite in to the main event which is a $3,000 + 125. I do not have a structure sheet yet, but typically the Beau holds good deep structures. It's a two day event. I suspect 100 +/- entrants.

Anyway, I am looking for advice in how to best prepare. I'm a total book nerd so would love advice on good tournament books or other resources. I have some experience in these types of events and have played a couple of the Tunica WSOP Circuit events. I got 2nd down at the Beau in a ladies event recently, but am basically a pure amateur. I've been playing for about 5 years and mostly play $1/2 and $2/5 live with the occasional tourney when I get to a casino (live in bible belt Georgia where only local games).

Any tips, resources, etc. would be appreciated. I would really like to do what I can to prepare. I'm motivated to do the best I can.

You should get your hands on 'Kill Everyone.' One of the best tournament books out there (imo). Read it more than once if you have to. Good luck!

Hey guys!
Sorry about the late reply.... If you go to www.beaurivage.com, you can see the actual schedule. The 1500 is not a turbo.....LOL

I will have structures posted this week, but just a heads up, the 300's and 500's have increasing level times. They start with 10K in chips, 1st 10 levels are 30 min, next 10 are 45, everything after is 60.... Also, all FT levels are 60,

Funny.....there are two threads about this tourney and I posted in the other one.

Look forward to seeing Johnny, Eric, Mr. B, Shaun and everyone else in a couple of weeks.

Should be a great event. See you soon

We would have come for the weekend except there are only TURBOs on Saturday.... not coming for that crap...

sorry, lets do better next year please

I wish the turbos could have been avoided, but when we try to have a full event with a decent structure, we look like fools because players invariable ask "How are the people that go deep on Saturday supposed to play in the Main on Sunday"

What we call a turbo has 10K in chips, 30 minute levels, and has no levels missing:

25-50
50-100
75-150
100-200
100-200 25
150 300-25
200-400-50
250-500 50
300-600-75
400-800-75
etc

So it isnt a horribly strucutred tournament, and with 250 players it will likely last until 3 or 4 in the morning....

Johnny, when does registration for the HU event start? Any reason it's capped at 32 and not 64? Where are the structures for the other events?
