Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa – Rancho Mirage
April 1, 2023 to March 27, 2024

Here’s How It Works:  The Poker room at Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa Rancho Mirage (ACRM) will hold Poker Tournament Player’s Monthly Qualifier Tournaments for players who have qualified by playing at least three (3) poker tournament(s) during the month (any month, but each month is individual to qualify for). There will be (1) one $4,000-dollar monthly qualifier poker tournament to play each month. The starting time is 3pm. Players that finish in the top ten places on any of these Poker Tournament Player’s Monthly Qualifier Tournaments will be entered to play in our Poker Tournament Player’s Anniversary Qualifiers Tournament in March 2024. Below is how the money for these Poker Tournament Player’s Monthly Qualifier Tournaments are collected. We will collect $10 dollars from the buy-ins for all Daily Tournaments, Nightly Tournaments and Weekend Tournaments (Saturdays and Sundays).

Tournament Control Sheet(s):

The dollars allocated for the Prize Pool (i.e. portion of Tournament Buy-Ins along with Tournament Rebuys) along with dollars allocated for the house rake (i.e. what is allocated for the Poker Room Revenue along with what is allocated for the Dealers Tips) are listed on the Tournament Control Sheet. There will also be a separate box that will have the amount collected for the Poker Tournament Player’s Monthly Qualifier Tournaments. This money collected during each tournament will be sent to the main cage with a Cashier Voucher that will state this money is for the Poker Tournament Player’s Monthly Qualifier Tournaments.


We have limited seating in the Poker Room. There will be 4 tables or (40) seats available at the start of each tournament event. Players may sign up to play starting 2 hours before the start of each event. If we fill all 40 seats available we will use the alternate list format for players waiting to play to enter the tournament as other players get knocked out of the event. New players wanting to play will have up to (1) hour after the start of the tournament to sign up to play. All players waiting on the alternate list will get an opportunity to play. They will also start with the same amount of chips and have the same option to buy the “add on” chips to begin their play in these event(s).

The tournaments will be held on the last Wednesday of each month. A tournament schedule will be posted in the ACRM Poker Room. The Schedule is as follows:

To qualify for and participate in any one of these tournaments, a participant must have played at least three (3) times during the month (each month is separate one time play to qualify) in one of our (cash buy-in) poker tournaments to be eligible to participate in our end of the month Poker Tournament Player’s Monthly Qualifier Tournament. Their play will be recorded each time they play a cash Buy-in Tournament by the player having their ACE Players Club card swiped by the tournament cashier or above when they sign up to play in one of our tournaments during the month or if they do not have a player’s card we will keep track of all the names written down on the tournament control sheet for each tournament.

Prize Structure:  The prize pool consists of $4,000 for each month’s qualifier poker tournament. The top ten (10) players will receive $400 cash prizes each.

Participants must register in person with the Poker Room Cashier in the Poker Room on the day of the tournament. Our registration fee will be as follows: We will take $25 dollars from each Add-on for the house rake. This will be on the poker control sheets. The money from the poker bank does not comingle with the tournament bank box. All add-ons are kept in this separate tournament bank box. At the end of the tournament, the Poker Floor Supervisor will reconcile the paperwork with the tournament cashier. The dealers will receive $15 dollars from each poker tournament add-on. This tip money for the dealers will be collected at the cashier cage during the registration period and then dropped in a locked tip box at the end of the poker tournament by the tournament supervisor to be reconciled at the main cage per our poker room internal controls.
