Only In Vegas: Weekly Topless Poker

The Best Part May Be the Tournaments Are Free to Enter

There's only one place in Las Vegas where the tournament poker dealers remove a piece of clothing with every blind level change, and here's a hint: It's not Binion's Horseshoe.

Sin Gentleman's Club launches the 2006 season of its Topless Poker League Feb. 7. The league meets every Tuesday at 9 p.m. for the duration of the year in the club's sports bar.

The tournaments are free. Players still have to pay for food, drink, and lap dances.

Acting as dealers, dancers remove a piece of clothing whenever a blind level ends. Also with each level change, dancers take to the stage to provide the players with a break in the action.

The winner of each tournament will get to play in a championship tournament in December. The grand prize of the season has yet to be determined.

Prizes vary from week to week, depending which sponsors step up and donate prizes for that week. Past prizes included iPods, TVs, poker chip sets, humidors, and wine baskets.

If interested in playing, management suggests phoning ahead to reserve a seat to the tournament. The club is opened 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
