Oklahoma Johnny Hale and Golden Nugget To Host Seniors Week In June

Tournaments Take Place During Grand Poker Series In Downtown Las Vegas


Oklahoma Johnny Hale and the Golden Nugget Las Vegas are proud to present the inaugural Seniors Week to be held June 18-26 as a featured part of the Grand Poker Series.

Hale, the creator of the Seniors World Championship of Poker, is gearing up to see everyone who has played in past seniors events with him during the past 30 years at the Golden Nugget.

These seniors-only poker tournaments will be priced from $240 all the way up to the $10,000 high roller event, which will be played on Sunday, June 26 shortly after the class of 2016 is inducted into the Seniors Poker Hall of Fame. There are even plans for this event to be filmed for TV as part of a documentary.

All the stars have been invited to attend and play in the events, and even those who aren’t seniors can play in the satellites to win seats for their senior friends and family. Players can also take advantage of a special hotel room rate by calling 1-800-634-3454 and mentioning the code POKER16.
