Caesars Palace Hosts Fourth Annual Caesars Classic Poker Tournament

October 22, 2010 by  



The fourth annual Caesars Classic poker tournament has commenced, hosting tournaments in the beautiful Caesars Palace Poker Room. Poker players of all skill levels, novice to professional, are invited to join in the daily events set to run from Oct. 21 – Nov. 7, 2010.

“We are excited to launch the fourth annual Caesars Classic Poker Tournament,” said Andy Rich, director of poker operations at Caesars Palace and Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. “Players travel from all over to join in the Classic. The feedback regarding our starting stack sizes, blind levels, double stack turbo tournaments, re-entry policy and extended length of play at the final tables has been overwhelmingly positive.”

The tournament kicked off at noon on Oct. 21, with a $230 buy-in. The first event of the Classic drew a field of 232 players including Filippo Candio, who will return to the Rio for the World Series of Poker Final Table on Nov. 6.  Players 21 years of age or older may register throughout the duration of the Classic. Tournament Buy-ins range from $150 – $1,070 with cash games running around the clock as well. Single table satellites for all events will run daily from 9 a.m. – 11 p.m. 

There are several special events scheduled as well, starting with the Oklahoma Johnny Hale Seniors Event on Sunday morning, Oct. 24 at 10am. Caesars Poker Room is a Charter Member of the Oklahoma Johnny Hale Seniors Poker Club. The champion of this special event will walk away with entry into the 2011 WSOP Seniors championship Event, along with the cash prize from the tournament. There is also a Ladies Event on Tuesday, Oct. 26 at 11am, and a very special Poker Hall of Fame Open Tournament which will be attended by some special guests, such as 2010 Poker Hall Of Fame inductee and 1995 WSOP Main Event champion Dan Harrington. Harrington will be inducted into the Poker Hall Of Fame on Nov. 8, 2010 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

The Caesars Palace Poker Room features a selection of the most popular poker games including Texas Hold’em, Stud and Omaha. With more than 14,000 square feet, including a 6,000 square foot tournament area and 33 tournament tables, it is the largest poker room on the Strip. More than 20 large-screen high-definition TV sets ornament the walls, along with original Leroy Neiman artwork and Neil Leifer photographs.  An extensive menu and dedicated cocktail service allow players to have food and beverage delivered directly to the tables during play.
