High hands are really high from 2 p.m. to midnight Saturday in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Room. It’s $1,000 every 30 minutes, with rollovers. A quick note, though: They also had $1,000 high hands last weekend and the room was packed. So you might have to wait for a table.

Hialeah Park doesn’t have a big monthly poker tournament booked for December – probably a good idea because of the holidays – but still has a $75 tournament that includes a free buffet at 6 p.m. Mondays. The event has a $5,000 guaranteed prize pool.
