Bay 101 Casino to Deal Faded Spade Cards as Shooting Star Returns
LONGWOOD, FLA (1/28/19) - Faded Spade® playing cards are set to make their Northern California debut as Bay 101 will become the first California casino customer to offer Faded Spade cards at its poker tables on a full-time basis. Faded Spade playing cards will be used in poker tournaments and cash games, and timing will closely align with the return of Bay 101 Casino’s famous Shooting Star tournament.
“After completing a test run with Faded Spade playing cards at our newly upgraded venue, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback from Bay 101 dealers and players, making the decision to switch to Faded Spade an easy one,” Sam Quinto, Casino Manager at Bay 101 Casino, said. “Faded Spade cards deliver exceptional quality you can truly see and feel at the poker tables, plus provide superior longevity compared to other brands.”
Matt Savage, Executive Director of the WPT and Tournament Director at Bay 101 Casino, added: “As one of California’s premier poker-playing venues, it is necessary that we continue to offer a world-class experience at Bay 101 Casino. Following the opening of Bay 101’s new venue and announcing the return of the Bay 101 Shooting Star tournament, it only made sense for us to continue to elevate our game with Faded Spade.”
“I had the pleasure of visiting Bay 101 Casino two years ago as a player and was blown away by the high level of customer service provided by all of their employees,” Tom Wheaton, CEO of Faded Spade, said. “Bay 101’s commitment to its players and the game of poker are clear the moment you enter the venue, and we are proud to call Bay 101 a Faded Spade card room.”
A flagship poker room in California, Bay 101 recently completed a $50 million expansion, elevating the venue with stylish, modern design, new dining options, and 49 action-packed gaming tables.
The famed Bay 101 Shooting Star poker tournament is set to return March 17-22, with three featured events. The schedule is headlined by the $5,200 buy-in Bay 101 Shooting Star tournament, taking place March 19-22, in which a select group of players, deemed “Shooting Stars,” carry a $2,000 bounty. Chip leaders at the end of Day 1 and Day 2 receive a $5,000 bonus prize, and the tournament moves to a six-handed format with 36 players remaining. For more on the event, visit www.Bay101.com.
