Discuss the 30K Blackjack Tournament event at Scarlet Pearl Casino in D'Iberville, MS.
its on their web page.....for $500.00 buy in ...even shorter than Hard Rock
Wow... A $500 buy-in for a $30k tournament ($12,500 1st)? Unreal. That wasn't shown in my mailer... thanks to whomever added that important detail to the tournament listing.
Holy Bum Deal, Batman! $500 for a 30K prize fund and all prizes are paid in slot credits or table action except 1st???
Doesn't take long to rule that one out.
It's somewhat a mystery how they continue to have enough participation to keep this one going. Lots of comped in players, I assume. That, and unless they've gotten it much better organized than the first one, there is an additional reason to just being a terrible buy in vs. payout deal. I played the very first one. As I recall it was so disorganized that the final table finally played at after midnight........ Was planned to have been at 8:00 PM or so, as I recall. I won't call names but within the last year or so a contributor to this forum walked up to me at the Hard Rock after his first Scarlet Pearl "experience", and said: "Well, I just played my first Scarlet Pearl Blackjack tournament,...... And my last!'
