Commerce Casino Announces First Guaranteed Million Dollar Summer Tourney With 5-Day Entry

Enter or Re-Enter Any Day From July 20-24; Top 10% of Each Day's Field Will Cash; 27 Advance Daily to Final

COMMERCE, CA--(Marketwire - July 6, 2010) -  Commerce Casino is heating up the summer with a new Guaranteed Million Dollar Tournament featuring a five-day entry, slated to begin July 20. This $335 Buy-In No Limit Hold'em event gives players the option of entering or re-entering on any of the five days from July 20-July 24. That's five different shots at the final table!

Even better, approximately 10% of each day's field will take home a piece of the million-dollar prize pool, and the top 27 players every day will advance to the final on Sunday, July 25. The ultimate field competing for the guaranteed Commerce Casino payout will only number 135 players. Make it past your first day, and the prize money continues to grow on Sunday!

"With the phenomenal record-breaking attendance and huge popularity of these multiple entry-day tournaments that Commerce Casino has had with the L.A. Poker Classic and the Cal State Championship, we thought it would be great to offer a standalone $1 million tournament here in the summer," said Jeff Harris, Casino Manager. "We want to make sure in these lazy dog days of summer that players have a powerhouse tournament that will keep them excited."

The Guaranteed Million Dollar Tournament will begin at 2 p.m. each of the five entry days. Players may register on site or in advance at the Casino Services desk.
