Pony up, Penn National Gaming invites you to participate in the qualifier and the guarantee tournaments of $10,000, $20,000, and $40,000, playing out in January, 2013. Blinds are thirty minutes. The first event (Friday, January 25th, with the $10,000 guarantee) has a buy-in of only $125, with the top 5 winning sets to the tournament the very next day. The following day, Saturday, the 26th has a pay-out of $20,000 with a buy in of only $225. Here the top 5 finishers will also win an entry into the tournament of the next day, Sunday, the 27th. The buyin is $335, and the pay-out is $40,000. In this event the top 2 finishers win seats to the big main event in June 2013. If you happen to stay at the four star M Resort Spa Casino, don’t worry about spoiling yourself as you indulge in the luxurious environment, since the world premier event returns to the M Resort in June. But in the meantime, to access more information on these January events at the M Resort, see www.themresort.com or telephone 702 797 1777.

The buy-in is $2500, but Penn National Gaming brings you every opportunity to win a seat.
