Calder Studz to try 15-minute high hands for one day

Ramping up the high-hand mania that has hit South Florida card rooms, Studz poker room at Calder is offering $100 high hands every 15 minutes on Tuesday, July 5.

The first High Hand payout will be at 10 a.m., and will continue every 15 minutes until midnight.

"We always listen to the requests and ideas of our guests when planning our promotions" said Chris Trabue, Director of Studz Poker Club. "Depending on the turnout and popularity of the 15-minute high hands, it may be something that we will look at continuing in the future."

South Florida poker has gone to high hands everywhere, prompting what some call "bingo poker." But it's proving popular, so, there you go...

Meanwhile, Studz will host a $25,000 Guaranteed Deepstack at 11 a.m. Saturday, July 2.

The buy-in is $225, and the tournament features the custom deepstack blind structure that Studz created based off of player requests, according to the poker room.

All other Saturdays in July, Studz will host its normal $10,000 guaranteed tournament with a $100 buy-in at 11 a.m. The $10K headliner at Studz usually draws a field of between 130-150 players, and all tournament players are eligible for the $500 high hands every 30 minutes on Fridays and Saturdays.

Meanwhile, Calder also has a free-play "stickie" on the front of Friday's Sun-Sentinel. New members who bring in the sticker between now and midnight Monday get $20 in free slot play.

Maybe you've made the right play, maybe you haven't. Your heart speeds up, your stomach rumbles.

That's why it's called gambling.

ACTION is a view of the numbers, the psychology and the flavor of gambling here in South Florida, through our lens.

We do have one sure bet. There's something here for you.

NICK SORTAL began playing 3-card "gut" and "Indian poker" on high school band trips, moved on to "night baseball" and "pass the trash" during a Dr. Pepper-infused midnight game in the 1980s at the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, and now play in a regular neighborhood Hold 'Em game in Plantation. I have been given the assignment of writing about the gambling life in South Florida casinos for the Sun-Sentinel...which means sitting around watching poker on TV now counts as research.
