Winstar Labor Day River Series 2018

Link is not posted to their site yet, but WinStar has the schedule out for their main River series. Biggest news is that they are only having two starting days for the Main, but keeping a $2M guarantee on it AND losing the $1M guarantee for first, very glad to see that. Will be interesting to see what fields they get with two starting days and few mega satellites. All events also will be in the poker room, no more Global Event Center.

$550 Mega Satellites - 12PM on 8/12, 8/19 and 8/21 and 7PM on 8/26 and 8/30. All Megas have 8 seats added to the prizepool.

8/17-18 from 11A-11P, $500 splash pots every hour

8/22 12 PM - $340 turbo bounty ($100 bounties)

$450 Monster Stack ($500K guarantee) has 3 starting days, 12PM 8/23,8/24,8/25, final day 8/26.

8/27 12 PM - $450 PLO

8/27 7 PM - $230 Super Turbo Bounty ($100 bounties)

8/28 12 PM - $340 NLHE

8/28 7 PM - $230 Super Turbo Bounty ($100 bounties)

8/29 12 PM - $560 Deep Stack (2 day tournament)

8/29 7 PM - $230 Super Turbo Bounty ($100 bounties)

8/31 12 PM - $1100 Super Turbo Bounty Survivor - This has $500 bounties, and pays $2500 River Lammers to the top 20% of the field. Also, WinStar is adding 8 lammers, so it will pay 20% + 8.

9/1 & 9/2 12 PM - $2500 Main Event (Re-Entry) with $2M guarantee. Interesting changes are only two starting flights, and playing down to 12% each day, with 12% making the money.

9/3 3 PM - $1100 Super Turbo Bounty - $500 bounties.

Re: Winstar Labor Day River Series 2018

I hope the numbers do not go down too much with only 2 starting days in main. Should be a good event as always. I will play the main and hope to play a mega or two as those are as good a value as you can find anywhere.

Re: Winstar Labor Day River Series 2018

Is there a group code or other code available for hotel reservations for people buying into The River? I'm hoping they have some rooms reserved for such folks...Thanks.

Re: Winstar Labor Day River Series 2018

Nope, and Labor Day weekend is hugely busy for them, so hotel prices are absurd unless you are a big gambler with them. Most Gainesville hotels are mediocre at best also.

Try the Red River Inn and Suites. They were totally sold out for 9/2 when I called and this place had rooms for a third of the price as Winstar and is a short walk away from the poker room.

Re: Winstar Labor Day River Series 2018

Confusingly, there are two Red River Inn hotels adjacent to Winstar, one is a Best Western and the other isn't. The BW one is nicer and more expensive. I've stayed at both. The non-BW one is a bit worn and meh, but paying $110 to stay there beats the hell out of paying $350 or something to stay at WinStar, and when I go with my fiancee, it's nice for us to be able to go back and forth easily without a car if needed, as opposed to driving to Gainesville and back.

Re: Winstar Labor Day River Series 2018

And maybe I’m particularly stupid today, but thought I saw that the River poker events are going to be in the poker room itself now? Main Event is still going to be in global event center, with cash games ongoing in the regular poker room, correct?

That's what Winstar's site says.

Re: Winstar Labor Day River Series 2018

I don't get how they will have both cash and tourney in the new room?

Wasn't the tournament always in the Global Events Center and cash in the main poker room?

Yes it was.

Cash games will have a long list until later in the day of the big field tournaments. I think they have 50-55 tables in the new room so the weekend tourney days should be the only times with space issues.

Re: Winstar Labor Day River Series 2018

The Winstar site says what the blinds start at and how many chips you get. The turbos usually skip a few levels, and the main usually has all of the standard levels.
