The Card Player Poker Tour Season II is currently underway at bestbet Jacksonville, in Jacksonille, Florida giving both staff and players are good reason to get excited. The Poker Tour will have a number of unique events and is expected to draw a number of well known poker players.
In a statement, Jesse Hollander, Associate Director of Poker Operations at bestbet Jacksonville said
The players get very excited here when we have a major event. It creates a lot of buzz and we run tons of satellites. Our players want to be a part of the global poker market and they like the feeling that the town of Jacksonville in north Florida is now among the global poker market by having the Card Player Poker Tour and other major events.
The series will feature fourteen tournaments and the main event will be the $1,500 no-limit hold’em tournament that comes with a $300,000 guarantee. The main event is scheduled to take place on the 6th of September at 12 noon and will run on a daily basis, giving players the opportunity to book at seat at the table at a much lower buy in price.
There are also a number of satellite main events that have a buy in price of $185 and will be available till the 6th of September. Some of the other popular tournaments include H.O.R.S.E., no-limit hold’em turbo, Omaha eight or better and bounty tournaments.
The tour will also feature 2 tournaments are scheduled to take place after the main event is completed. The first is a innovative $240 no-limit hold’em all in or fold with $50 bounties that takes place on the 7th of September at 3 pm and a $240 no-limit hold’em which comes with $50 bounties and will take place on the 8th of September at 3 pm.
Hollander went on to say that
Day 1 of any multi-day event is always the least attended. People always go for the last day so we have a promotion to encourage people to play day 1a. We will have a drawing for one of every ten people in the field. We have event number one with a $100,000 guarantee and we hope to double it. We also hope to double the main event guarantee and get about 500 plus players in total. That would make it more than a $500,000 prize pool.

Ruth's Chris Steak House - DoubleTree Jacksonville Ratings and Reviews Overall Rating
We loved the steaks. Kevin was an excellent waiter. He was professional and friendly. He attended to the smallest of details. He never interrupted us once and yet took care to address our every need which is the mark of an excellent waiter. We had a great time.
Was Me and My wife's 22nd Anniversary.We had a great time and we will be dining there again in the near future.
Great for business dinner. Quality as expected from stand alone restaurant.
Top notch food and service!
Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Ruth's Chris with my friend. Cody our waiter was very efficient and friendly. The food, as usual, was fantastic.
My experience at Ruth's Chris was quite simply the best meal experience I have ever encountered. I understand how incredible aged beef is and the techniques employed by the culinary staff are an experience that everyone should enjoy whenever they have the ways and means to do so. If you love eating steak, you must experence it, save up and go.
It's always a great getaway to go and be pampered at Ruth's Chris. Our waiter and his support staff were excellent as usual. The food was great.
When we entered the restaurant the girl at the reception table was not friendly. Without even a slight smile she just asked, “Are you here to check in. name. be right with you.” She had the same expressionless look for other groups entering after us. It felt robotic and gave my wife and I the impression she didn’t want us to be there. For the amount of money we spent for the evening, I would have at least appreciated a greeter that made us feel as if YOU appreciated us being there!
Richard our server was outstanding, each course came out well staged and ambiance was great.
They are the best for birthdays and anniversaries!
Derek is the best waiter/server/host in Jacksonville. He makes you feel like you're his only customers. The food is always consistent, the ambience and downtown Jax location can't be beat, and it's our go-to place for every important meal, whether personal or business.
Great as always
My husband and I went to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. He ordered the petite filet with a lobster tail and I ordered the BBQ Shrimp. Everything was cooked to perfection. Our server, Anthony even set rose petals and gave us a card with all the servers signatures. It was sweet.
Eric and his Team have always and continue to a fabulous job! Best Ruth's Chris in the SE region!
Have gone to this Ruth's many times. We were disappointed in the food preparation and service.
Lovely view and setting. Slightly disappointed with filet - cooked beyond medium rare as requested. Very professional service - attentive but not overbearing.
Celebrating my daughter's birthday.
Exceptional service and meal. We've eaten at this location many times, and we are always extremely pleased with our experience. The servers are great and really make the meal that much better. Be sure to make reservations for Friday and Saturday nights!
We had an awesome time. I took my friend there for her birthday. She said it was the best birthday ever. Thanks, Ruth Chris.
Food was very good, the wait time wasn't very long fornthe meals.
We had a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary. The restaurant was packed but our waiter Blair took very good care of us. The food was delicious as always and our request for seating was just what we had hoped for.
Professional wait staff and great food. Nice views too!
Asked for medium steak and it was burnt more than well done. Our server was very helpful and he was the only good part. I would suggest 3 Forks restaurant if you are going to spend thia much for dinner. Ruth's Chris has now fallen victim to the food-chain industry. Very disappointed. The cut of meat was also just average.
Party of 4 - One party sent back the fish (sea bass) which was overcooked twice. The other parties enjoyed the meal and the customary good service.
We were celebrating our wedding anniversary, so our table was festively decorated. Our waiter took our picture and gave it to us in a card frame. Never had that before. We had a great window table with a view of the river. The best cocktails and the food is always delicious. Due to several large parties our entre was a little slow coming out. Highly unusual, and it won't keep me from coming back.
The large party next to us kind of put a damper on what was otherwise a wonderful anniversary dinner. I was very disappointed that people would be so obnoxiously loud in a quiet, fine dining restaurant. I should have asked to move but more importantly, maybe our waiter should have suggested that to us.
They also should get a better dessert menu. They don't offer much and what the do offer isn't good at all.
Les our waiter made our 33rd anniversary dinner very special. Rose petals on the table, great wine and excellent food. Could not have been a more lovely evening.
It was very nice a littte more than i like to spend but for a special occasion not bad
The table service, food and bar were outstanding. The best classic sidecar I've ever had.
The hostess and the maître d were not so great. The hostess was sure to inform us upon arrival at 9:45 that the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes BUT she could seat us. The maître d, just not friendly and not capable of a smile. Dined there twice over the past weekend 9:45 one night and 6:30 another night. Same attitudes. The wait staff, fantastic, the food, wonderful and consistent as usual and the bar, out of the park! Front of the house could use some work.
The petite steak and shrimp was absolutely delicious! Cooked exactly as I requested and seasoned to perfection.
Took my mother for a special dinner before a theatre event. Perfect as always.
My parents were super happy with the excellent service it made their anniversary dinner outstanding so much they want to go back! Thank you so much for making my parents night so special!
Food was exceptional. Jeremy did a fantastic job again.
Our waitress was exceptional - her focus on our needs and prompt attention to attention and timely service was impeccable. She made the special evening even more memorable.
Food and service were great. Always is at Ruth's Chris.
We have been here twice. Both times we had amazing service and food to match. Every single thing we ordered, it exceeded our expectations. The staff is VERY friendly and courteous. The same waiter served us this time as the first time. He even remembered what booth we sat at the very first time, 3 years ago.
Becoming to chain like. No attention to detail as before. Food disappoints.
Probably find another special occasion destination.
We had an amazing meal and everyone there helped to make our 25th Wedding Anniversary a wonderful one!Please sign in to record your input. Thanks! Report this review as inappropriate?
