If only Schenectady could get the drug dealers and prostitutes to donate to support the community.

Rivers Casino to hold 1st major poker tournament
Prize totals will increase, depending on how many players sign up

Brett Samuels | May 11, 2017 2

SCHENECTADY — Rivers Casino & Resort is expecting a full house along the river later this month, during the area's largest poker event to date.

The Capital Region Classic Poker Tournament will take place from May 24-28 in the event space at Rivers, with at least $100,000 in prize money up for grabs. The tournament will be the first major gambling event at the facility since its Feb. 8 opening.

The casino has been hosting smaller tournaments since April. Poker tables will be set up in the facility’s 10,000-square-foot event center, and officials are expecting hundreds of players to attend from around the region.

Registration starts May 17 at the cashier cage on the gaming floor.

The tournament will be spread over five days, with top players advancing through flights each day, culminating on May 28.


The “Day One” no-limit buy-in is $260 for $25,000 worth of tournament chips, with unlimited re-entries. Players who wish to join “Day Two” of the tournament directly can buy-in for $1,100 and receive $100,000 worth of tournament chips.

“We wanted our first big poker tournament to be player-friendly and accessible to players at all levels of skill and experience,” said Rivers Casino & Resort Poker Manager David Grubb, in a prepared statement.

The prize pool will start at $100,000 but will increase, depending on the number of tournament participants. The money will be spread among top performers. A small portion of buy-in fees will go toward dealer tips and Rivers for hosting, officials said.

The tournament will not impede day-to-day activity in the 15-table poker room, located just off of the gaming floor, officials said.

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has been listed as one of five major sporting events "on the decline".

I hate when they call a game a sport .

The Grinch who stole Christmas!  It appears to some that because there is no cost to taxpayers for the casino, even a dollar return is better than nothing

Ha ha Schenectady, the Democrats stuck it up your a$$ again.  Enjoy your Casino.

Quoted Text
Schenectady City Council President Democrat Leesa Perazzo, who voted to support a casino, said the city included the revenue number in its June 2014 vote because the state provided it.

The resolution also said that the host municipality payment, "will be used exclusively for the reduction of real property taxes." However, city officials have already used casino revenue in settling fire and police contracts. Perazzo said a resolution is not a law, so city officials are not bound by the tax reduction promises made in it.

Yup.  Everyone got theirs:Fire,Police,Labor Unions,who built the casino complex and related bldgs.  (Large voting blocks you know must be catered to)   Next up waiting in the wings City employees contract.   Can a Council pay hike be far behind?   Merry Xmas city of Sch'dy taxpayers.   P.S.   On a somewhat related note. Not one shard/beam of steel was purchased from the steel company next door to the casino complex, in the construction of said complex,  Shop local?  That is the mantra preached to us.   But not at the Rivers complex.   Would of been a shot in the arm for that local company and it's employees.

Did anyone really expect anything different? I guess we should thank our lucky stars that our already high taxes didn't go higher.  Moonglow, you are spot on with the shop local deal.

Hold on, my total tax bill increased about 12 bucks due to city water and sewer rates up, on the county side the election fee increased.. one tiny positive,
equalization decreased from 121 to 118, gives me an extra 2500 or so in market value so says the city.

Daily gazette.com, front page, residents upset. City employees get the casino cash, all residents get the comforting "how the infrastructure is important talk" bill. Get used to it, on both the city and county ends.
