Last Chance at a Free Caesars Palace Classic $10,000 Seat

High Hand Promotion Ends Next Week


In this new "Strip Poker" series, Card Player covers the Las Vegas poker scene - on The Strip and around the city.

Caesars Palace Tournament RoomThe Caesars Palace Classic is only a couple weeks away, and the poker room has been buzzing with anticipation, especially on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. That is because the poker room has been giving away $10,000 seats in the Caesars Palace Classic main event (Oct. 22) for the high hand of the day on each of those days. Players still have a chance at a seat this week and next week, but the promotion ends Oct. 10.

The player who makes the highest hand using both holecards will receive a seat. Since there has been so much response to the promotion, the cash games have been filled, and on most days, the high hand is a royal flush. So far, $120,000 worth of seats have been given away.

The day after the high hand promotion ends, registration for the Caesars Palace Classic begins. The first preliminary event starts on Oct. 12 at noon PT and is a $550 buy-in no-limit hold'em tournament. For a complete schedule for the tournament series, click here.
