Mardi Gras casino in Cross Lanes, WV is running a "3-day" tournament next weekend, June 22-24th.Looks like their playing down to 60 players or to the 12th level. From what the tourney director has said below it looks like they might be paying out close to half the field? Would also think that 1st should be more than 20%, no? Think its worth playing? Any thoughts?15,000 chips for $230 plus $5 dealer add-on 3,000 chips!! Each preliminary round will seat the first 200. The round will seat the first 200. The top 60 (max) will advance from each round to the finals Sunday, June 24th.Mardi Gras Casino & Resort West Virginia @ Aaron, you are correct there are three qualifying rounds to come back for the Sunday final. Friday, June 22 at 6:00p.m., Saturday June 23 at noon or 6:00p.m. will all be qualifiers. Whatever you have at the end of each round will be your starting chips for the Sunday final. Top 50 will be paid with first prize being 20% of prize pool (projected $25,000 for first).Below is the payout for the tournament:1st 20%2nd 11%3rd 8%4th 7%5th 6%6th 4.5%7th 4%8th 3%9th 2.5%10th 2%11-15th 1.5%16-20th 1.2%21-30th .75%31-40th .6%41-50th .5%

The prize pool seems fairly flat, typical of a small casino trying to make sure lots of people cash. The biggest question when evaluting a structure is the size of the blinds and antes in relation to the starting stack and the time for each level. For me, I like a structure where you can play for a few hours before being forced to make all in preflop decisions.
