Rivers Casino Schenectady hosting Electric City Poker Series

10 April 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Poker fans are in for a treat when Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady hosts its first-ever Electric City Poker Series starting 13 April and running until Sunday, 23 April. The Electric City Poker Series includes 11 tournaments in 11 days and will take place in the River Casino Event Center and Poker Room. Every event has a guaranteed prize pool, with $290,000 in total guarantees, and every event champion will be awarded a winner's trophy.

The opening event from Thursday, 13 April until Sunday, 16 April, is the $400 buy-in Mystery Bounty No-Limit Hold 'em with a $75,000 guaranteed prize pool. Every player in this event will have a chance to win up to $10,000 just by knocking someone out of the tournament on Day 2. This will be the first Mystery Bounty tournament to be held in New York state.

The Electric City Poker Series Main Event is an $800 buy-in No-Limit Hold 'em tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $150,000. Mega Satellites will also be available for the 1st and 10th events. Parlay a smaller buy-in into a chance at a bigger payout.

Other events unique to the area are the Rivers Revival and the Uber Stack Turbo. In the Rivers Revival event, any player yet to be eliminated may “Revive” upon their first elimination and get right back in the action with 20 Big Blinds. The Uber Stack Turbo will have everyone start off with 60,000 in tournament chips and play with a faster clock. Also on the schedule are a Ladies Championship and a Seniors Championship for players 55 and above.

Registration for all events is at the Rivers Casino Poker Room. Registration for the Mystery Bounty event and the Main Event begins Tuesday, 11 April. For all other events registration will be open on the scheduled day two hours prior to the event start time.

Guests participating in the Electric City Poker Series are also eligible to receive a discount booking code for a room rate of $88 at The Landing Hotel. Guests must pre-register for the tournament at the Rivers Poker Room to receive their booking code.
