ISLETA RESORT & CASINO SINBAD • MARCH 22, 2019

Sinbad, the energetic comedian who rose to fame in the 1980’s and 1990’s with A Different World and The Sinbad Show, comes to Isleta Resort & Casino in March. Known as the “Crown Prince of Comedy,” he is not only hilarious, but his shows are typically without any profanity or graphic sexual references. People of all walks and ages in life find him naturally funny. As one fan recently put it, “We just attended our third live performance. It was a great intergenerational, diverse experience. From teenagers to senior citizens, the laughter was explosive.”

Born in 1956 in Benton Harbor, Michigan, Sinbad served in the U.S. Air Force before starting his comedy career. His career really took off after appearing on Star Search in the mid1980s. He soon landed TV roles on The Redd Foxx Show and A Different World. Sinbad also appeared in such films as 1996’s  Jingle All the Way. In 2011, he had his own reality show with Sinbad: It’s Just Family. In recent years, he enjoys performing live shows, many of which have been sold out. Come enjoy Sinbad at Isleta Resort & Casino on March 22. For more information, visit www.isleta.com.

WORLD SERIES OF POKER TO CELEBRATE ITS 50TH ANNIVERSARY

The dates have been announced for the 2019 World Series of Poker, the annual global championship of professional poker that attracts tens of thousands of players from around the world for a month and a half of tournament play. This year’s festival will run from May 28 to July 16, 2019 at its long-time home, the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. In celebration of its Golden Anniversary, a monumental event will be held on opening weekend, May 30 through June 2: “The Big 50”. This tournament will have a $500 buy-in with 50,000 chips, and 50-minute levels. It will offer a $5-million guaranteed prize pool and $1-million to the winner. The Big 50’s affordable buy-in will make it attractive to a broad spectrum of poker players, plus the fact that the WSOP is making everyone’s initial entry into the event rake-free. All $500 of the entry

will go directly into the prize pool. “We’re excited to commence our golden event,” said WSOP executive director Ty Stewart. “We expect our opening Big 50 event to be one of the largest in our history, and certainly one of the best value tournaments ever offered. This is part of our concerted plans to make the 2019 World Series of Poker a better value all-around.” The WSOP is coming off a record-breaking year. The 2018 festival attracted 123,865 entries for an all-time high $266,889,193 in prize money. The average gold bracelet event in 2018 featured a prize pool in excess of $3.4-million with an average of $655,337 to the winner. Buy-ins for the upcoming tournaments at the Rio will start as low as $70. Single table satellites and a variety of poker games featuring low, medium, and high-limit stakes will start on May 28 and run 24 hours a day throughout the seven-week festival.

Another new tournament on tap this year is the “Mini Main Event”, a two-day event scheduled for July 1. It’s a $1,000 buy-in, No Limit Hold’em event that is being held just two days before the championship Main Event and is designed as a great way for players preparing for the world championship to hone their skills to a razor’s edge. The Mini Main Event will start with 60,000 tournament chips and feature every level in its name-sake counterpart. The buy-in is one-tenth the cost of the $10,000 buy-in for the Main Event yet will give participants a good feel for stack size and blinds/antes that will be encountered for the “big one”. Room reservations are being accepted across Caesars’ Las Vegas properties with rates as low as $33 for Caesars Rewards player’s club members. Please visit www.wsop.com for a complete schedule and all the latest news.

March 2019

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 22)

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 23)

This is a very fast paced month with some minor glitches as Mercury retrogrades from the fifth to the twenty eighth. You may have to provide some extra paperwork or check records to close some old transactions. You have some so many plans, just keep your energy consistent.

You may be meeting some high-profile people this month. A social connection may prove helpful in business. The new Moon on the sixth ignites expansion regarding educational, financial transactions and licensing concerns. Take extra precaution with misplacing your valuables till 25th.

Self-improvement is highlighted now. Start looking for new computer equipment or consider taking some classes that will upgrade your skills or redo your resume. Empower yourself and stop letting people take you off track emotionally or financially. Your skills are in demand, consider consulting.

The fast-moving independent planet, Uranus moves into your sign on the sixth giving you a new-found independence. You will want to break away from any restrictions and feel more confident now. Many will be impressed by your charisma. Forge ahead with educational pursuits.

Don’t be in a rush to act on your feelings; instead, think things through and give them time. You maybe receiving good news about a loan, pending investment, job or even a legal matter. Career developments are positive. Don’t mix pleasure with business including socializing with coworkers.

Present aspects could end an uncomfortable situation in your home life that has weighed heavily on your heart for some time. Negotiate deals for large items or ventures right up until the 28th. Travel and socializing are on your agenda, so you can decompress. Much of your desires manifest now.

As your ruling planet Mercury retrogrades this month, you get set to change circumstances around your career or professional path. If you have any problems, they will pop up to either deal with them or start looking for a better position or salary. Take your time and avoid any knee-jerk reactions.

Dating and romance are high on your cosmic list this month. Give yourself a break and let your hair down. Business meetings and/or interviews lead to spectacular developments with lucky planets moving through your relationship zone. Real estate investments or remodeling proves rewarding.

Your heart is sensitive and open this month and prospects for love are favored especially with Jupiter in your sign. Avoid investing with people or ideas that you’re unfamiliar with as Neptune’s rays may cloud your judgement. Money is wisely spent securing a home or property for the future.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 19)

Family issues may require your time. Focus on what needs to be done immediately as well as in the future. Hidden matters come to light as the planet Mercury retrogrades. This cycle gives you objectivity to help put out fires and implement detailed changes in your life. Health improves now.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 - MARCH 20)
