Over the course of 10 weeks, Oaklawn is looking for qualifiers for the first Spa City Poker Open.
Beginning Monday, at 7 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday until Nov. 10, Oaklawn Racing and Gaming hosts a multi-table tournament. The top two finishers each night clinch a spot in the finals on November 17. The winner of that gets a seat at the World Poker Tour's Southern Poker Championship in Biloxi across from the likes of Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu. The seat's valued at $10,000 and Oaklawn's paying for airfare and lodging.
There's a $60 buy-in for all qualifying tourneys.
