Strip Poker: Binion's Announces Poker Open Schedule

The 21-Event Series Begins Oct. 15


Binion'sThe legendary Binion’s Casino in downtown Las Vegas has announced the schedule for the Second-Annual Poker Open that starts on Wednesday, Oct. 15.

“More than 3,000 people participated in the inaugural Poker Open,” said Glenn Casale, director of casino operations in a press release. “The players were so pleased with the tournament ─ the way we ran the events, the reasonable buy-ins, the quality of our dealers, the level of competition─ they practically insisted we make it an annual event.”
The 21-event series runs through Nov. 3 and features buy-ins as low as $100 up to $500 for the preliminary tournaments. A number of variations are offered including no-limit hold’em, pot-limit Omaha eight-or-better, seven-card stud eight-or-better, H.O.R.S.E. and a ladies no-limit hold’em event. Super-satellites for $75 will run on Oct. 23 and Oct. 29 for the $500 buy-in events.

On Nov. 2, there will be Players Appreciation tournament. For a player to qualify, they must have at least one receipt to show proof of competing in an event. The buy-in is $100 which gets a player with one receipt 2,000 in chips. For a $10 add-on, an extra 2,000 chips is added. For every receipt present after that up to a maximum of four, 2,000 more in chips is awarded. Two percent from each previous event prize pool is withheld for the prize pool of the Player Appreciation tournament, along with the buy-ins. One seat to the $1,000 buy-in championship event will be awarded to every player who makes the final table.

The no-limit hold’em championship event will take place on Nov. 3. A $150 buy-in super-satellite will take place at 5 p.m. on Nov. 2 for players to get into the $1,000 buy-in for cheap.
