The Commerce Poker Series is currently underway at the Commerce Casino. Tournament director and 2016 Poker Hall of Fame nominee Matt Savage has always put a good mix of play on his schedule, and this series is no different.
Last Monday, September 5, you could play $ 350 HORSE at 2pm, and if you get knocked out, you can sign up for the $ 240 Pot Limit Omaha 8 or Better at 6pm. You don’t usually see a schedule like that outside of the World Series of Poker.
Events like this one generate a steady stream of attendees, and Commerce does a great job profiling some of these players, such as actress Gina Hecht visiting dewapoker, two-time WSOP gold bracelet winner Frankie O’Dell and Poker-Babes.com founder Shirley Rosario, who ended up winning Event 9, $ 350 Omaha 8 or Better, the day after he was profiled.
