The Carson Valley Inn Poker Room features live-action and tournament-play poker plus a number of special promotions to sweeten the pot for players. Complimentary draft beer, juices, and deli snacks are provided for all players.
An opening Shootout Hold'em tournament is held every day when the room opens at noon. The buy in is just $16 + $4 ($20 total) and the winner takes the pot! No-limit Texas Hold'em tournaments are held every Tuesday and Thursday night at 6 p.m. The buy-in is $20 + $5 ($25 total) with one $20 re-buy. The top 3 - 5 places receive prize money each night. There's a 500-chip bonus for tournament participants who log an hour of play time between 3 and 6 p.m. The first place finisher in each tournament also receives his or her choice of a CVI "INN The Money" tee shirt, hat or travel mug.
Ladies-Only Poker Tournaments are every Sunday with sign ups from 5 to 6 p.m., a special Poker Tutorial (like clicking on "Help" for Poker) from 5 to 5:30 p.m., and no-limit Texas Hold'em tournament play starting at 6 p.m. The $25+$5 entry provides $25 to the prize fund which the top three finishers split each week at 50%, 30% and 20%.
The CVI Poker Room features an Omaha Hi-Lo Split game every Monday starting at 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays starting at 3 p.m. The buy-in is just $20 with a $2 - $6 limit. A 4 X 8 limit Texas Hold'em game is spread at 5 p.m. on Wednesdays.
Ongoing poker promotions at the Carson Valley Inn include a Free Bonus Payout that provides cash bonus payouts of $200 for any royal flush, $75 for any straight flush and $25 for any four-of–a-kind. The Inn's Bad Beat promotion pays a free $1,000 in cash whenever a hand of "4 of a Kind" or better is beaten by a higher hand. $500 goes to the beaten 4-of-a-kind hand, $300 to the pot winner and the remaining $200 is table split to the remaining players.
During the weekends of the three remaining golf "Majors" this summer (US Open, British Open, PGA Championship), the CVI Poker room holds a Putting Contest Thursday through Sunday. Any player who makes a full-house, and wins the pot, earns a chance to roll one putt and win $10 in poker chips - make the putt and the chips are yours!
