word type: noun
- A poker tournament held each spring at the Bay 101 casino in San Jose, California.
What Makes This Tournament Different from All Others?
The most unique aspect of the Bay 101 Shooting Stars event is the "pro bounties" that are places on 50 of the high-profile poker players who enter. Busting out any of these players earns the winner of the hand $5,000.
Coinciding with the "poker celebrity" aspect of the event, the local players in San Jose are known for their passionate fandom of poker, and many come out in search of autographs and to meet their favorite players.
