Big poker month at Isle

The Isle Casino poker room has scheduled two days with $1,000 high hands, two inexpensive, high-payout tournaments and a $5,000 free-roll this month.

A big high-hand day is coming up first. It will award $1,000 every 30 minutes from 2 p.m. to midnight on May 24. The card room also will give out $500 every 15 minutes from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on May 12 and May 26, and $500 every 20 minutes from 9 a.m. to midnight May 17.

The month's deal in terms of tournaments is a $65 buy-in with a $15,000 guarantee. That's at 6 p.m. May 20.

The free-roll will begin at 11 a.m. May 24, with registration starting at 9 a.m. Players start with 2,500 units, get 2,500 more for a $10 dealer tip, can add 5,000 units for $20 if they drop below 5,000 and then can get a final 10,000 units for $20 after the rebuy period ends.
