Resort Overview

By Scott Long
I’ll never forget my first meeting with Ben Erwin.

I was on one of my many sales trips, and Erwin politely agreed to meet me for lunch at Thunder Valley Casino Resort, where he was director of poker operations, as I zig-zagged across Northern California.

Ben was was clear on the phone that he didn't have a budget for Ante Up, but something clicked over chicken pasta and Arnold Palmers and, not too much later, Thunder Valley was hosting the inaugural Ante Up Poker Tour event.

"It all started in 2012. We had really good success on our own as we starting building a name for ourselves in the region," Erwin said. "And then we partnered with Ante Up for the first Ante Up NorCal Classic and we got a great response. That was our first $1K event and it was just an amazing turnout. That really opened the door to a lot of things."

A lot of things indeed. Heartland Poker Tour stops. A World Poker Tour stop. An expanded poker room. And, of course, more Ante Up Poker Tour events.

"People are getting on planes now and flying to Sacramento to play poker," Erwin said.

I’m one of them. I’ve had great success playing at Thunder Valley, and I attribute it to the AAA Four-Diamond experience players enjoy when staying at Thunder Valley.

I start my day in the spa, where I enjoy an eucalyptus steam and computer-controlled rainforest shower, followed by hot tea and healthy snacks in the meditation lounge - all included in my room rate. It gets me relaxed and focused for the day’s tournaments.

After I cash, I never have to leave the resort to get a great meal with 14 bars and restaurants on property. If I’m in a hurry, a food court with several options is a quick walk from the poker room, as is a lavish buffet. If I’m not, you’ll find me at Red Lantern, deciding between pages and pages of delicious Asian dishes on the menu. And if I want to treat myself, I’m going to enjoy a tender steak and a Northern California red wine at High Steaks. (An added bonus for Main Event players is the ability to use their food comp not only for the buffet but also for a limited menu at High Steaks, designed to get them in and out during the dinner break.)

Then it’s on to the cash games. The resort offers four levels of no-limit - $1-$2 and $2-$5 daily and $5-$5 and $5-$10 on weekends. A $3-$6 limit game is always going, and $4-$8 limit and $4-$8 Omaha/8 break out on weekends, and pot-limit Omaha fires up during most major events. All feature terrific promotions. A full casino awaits for players who want to try their luck in other ways.

Late in the night, I grab a cold beer and enjoy live entertainment at one of the many bars, before retiring to my 535-square-foot suite, complete with an oversized bathroom, 320-thread-count linens, fast Internet and everything I need to wake up refreshed and ready for another day of exciting poker.

After, of course, a return visit to the eucalyptus steam room.

Event Overview

By Scott Long

At some point, Ben Erwin isn’t going to be able to make the Ante Up World Championship any bigger. That point isn’t here yet.

This year’s Ante Up Worlds, which run from July 6-28, will be the sixth held at Thunder Valley Casino Resort and for the first time will sport 30 events and nearly $1.5 million in guaranteed prize money.

“All the signature multi-day events return, and we are adding a variety of games including Big O, Omaha 8/Stud 8 and a PLO bounty event. These, along with HORSE, Omaha/8 and the only Heads Up bracket event offer our most diverse Ante Up Worlds schedule ever,” said Erwin, who is director of poker operations at Thunder Valley, a AAA Four Diamond resort near Sacramento, Calif. “As we went through the series last year, I looked for every opportunity to add to the already action-packed schedule and found some spots. The series now with 30 events and nearing $1.5 million in guarantees is like nothing else in our region.”

The highlight as always is the $1,650 two-flight Main Event with a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool that was far and away exceeded last year.

“This year, the championship will play to the money on Day 1,” Erwin said. “Players have shared across-the-board compliments about finishing the event on Sunday. I look forward to hearing from the players this year about playing to the money bubble on Day 1.”

Players who make the trek to Thunder Valley will have not one, but two, chances to be featured on the cover of Ante Up Magazine. The Main Event winner appears on the September cover, and the winner of the Ante Up NorCal Classic in the middle of the season earns the August cover. The NorCal, previously its own standalone series, was incorporated into The Worlds last year.

“The NorCal was our 1st tour event in 2012 and really began the rise of national popularity for the Thunder Valley Poker Room,” Erwin said. “The NorCal is scheduled at the halfway point of the series and its popularity brings a lot of attention to the series. The placement on the 2nd weekend has proven to give the series a surge of momentum at the halfway point.”

As he squeezed eight more events onto the calendar this year, Erwin also looked to innovate, making three of those new events, including one that will be played pot-limit Omaha, a concept he calls “Win Place Show Takes the Dough.” Only the top three players cash, but bounties on each player are significant and can add up quickly.

“Bounty events have always been popular here,” Erwin said. “This event is a small twist on the Winner Take All event Matt Savage put in our 2017 WPTDeepStacks Championship. This has proven to be fun event that definitely awards aggressive play.”

Speaking of the well-known and well-regarded WPT Executive Tour Director, Savage will back at The Worlds again this year, directing a WPTDS Championship satellite on July 25.

“Matt has been with us since the beginning,” Erwin said. “It’s always great to have him visit in the summer after the success of WPT Rolling Thunder and WPTDS Thunder Valley each year.”

The Ante Up World Championship has one of the most aggressive satellite schedules you’ll find, giving players of all bankrolls a shot of winning their way into not only the Main Event, but many of the multi-flight signature events throughout the schedule.

“The satellite schedule is aggressive, no doubt about that,” Erwin said. “This is a big part of success, growth, and excitement of the Ante Up Worlds. Players have come to expect big guarantees and a bunch of opportunities to win their way into our most popular events. This year definitely delivers with more than 100 Main Event entries guaranteed and 40 seats up for grabs on July 26 in a ‘One And Done” shootout concept that Matt Savage and Justin Hammer debuted at the WPT Los Angeles Poker Classic earlier this year.”

And, as always, Erwin looks for some really special extras for players to help spice up an already impressive series. The Player of the Series competition returns this year, with players earning points in the 26 events leading up to the Championship with the winner getting a $1,650 Championship entry and two complimentary hotel nights. Dan Ross of Hold’em Radio will provide live reporting on Thunder Valley’s popular poker blog all series long, and PokerNews will live report the Main Event on its website and social media outlets.

“We also will have 3bet event shirts for Main Event participants, trophies for the NorCal and Main Event and, of course, the Championship Reception in High Steaks Steakhouse the night before the Main Event.”

If you’ve never been to Thunder Valley Casino Resort, you are in for a treat at the poker tables and away from them. It is a AAA Four Diamond luxury resort that features a Las Vegas-style casino, more than 400 oversized and well-appointed guest rooms, a spa with complimentary steam room and sauna access for hotel guests, outdoor pool and a wide variety of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues, including the signature High Steaks Steakhouse.
