Prize money

The Coushatta Resort and Casino in Kinder, La., will host a poker tournament this December with a $1 million guaranteed prize pool.

The tournament, the Seven Clans Poker Cup Series, will take place Dec. 2-10, with the $3,100 main event starting Dec. 8. Players in the main event will be vying for at least a $1 million prize pool.

The schedule for the series is as follows:

  • Dec. 2 starting at noon, Poker cup Satellite Tournament
  • Dec. 3 starting at noon, $225 No-Limit Hold'em
  • Dec. 4 starting at noon, $335 Team Event

  • Dec. 7 starting at noon, $550 No-Limit Hold'em
  • Dec. 8-10 starting at noon, $3,100 main event

Play in all the events is limited to 400 people, and registration will be open only until an event is filled or up until an hour before the start of each tournament.

The Seven Clans Poker Cup's success in previous years has been attributed to the attractiveness of the venue and event to poker players.

"Coushatta offers its poker players an outstanding poker experience," said Randall Droddy, director of table games. "We have fast action games and a variety of limits. Our dealers are friendly and professional, and the staff works really hard. You just gotta come play poker at the Coushatta!"

The Coushatta features more than 2,800 slots and more than 70 table games in its 450,000 square foot building. According to a press release, the casino is designed for the player's delight, and the Seven Clans Poker Cup only adds to that atmosphere.

"Our Seven Clans Poker Cup has grown in popularity since our first tournament, and with the $1 million guarantee, it certainly ramps up the excitement level for any poker player," said Thomas Helo, table games tournament coordinator.
