Here are the events and the changes: 1) Ladies event - $500 buy-in +$50 entry fee - Any female who works in or directly for a public card room. Ladies may also play in one of the next three events, as qualified. Males may select only one of the next 3 events. 2) Dealer's Event - $1000 buy-in + $100 entry fee - Anyone who has dealt in a public card room in the 12 months prior to this event. Circuit dealers are eligible. 3) Supervisor's event, $1500 buy-in + $150 entry fee. Any employee who is NOT a dealer or a Card room manager or above, or an owner. (Dual rate employees may select either Event No. 2 or No. 3). 4) Manager's and Owner's event - $2000 buy-in + $200 entry fee. Card room managers and above, or, owners of card rooms.
