Saturday Morning

Boulder Station Hotel & Casino has a $25 entry starting at 11am, 11:45am, and 12:30pm. Double deck dealt face down, two advance from the first round into semis and one from the semis into finals. First prize is $1,350.

Sunday Evening

Silverton Hotel & Casino only if you must since their staff can be down-right rude and their dealers are for the most part not the friendliest.
