Golden Nugget Las Vegas Hosts ‘Grand Fall Classic Poker Series’

The Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino announces it will host a new week-long poker series, Nov. 24-30, in its luxurious events center, The Grand.

The Grand Fall Classic Poker Series will primarily feature more than 30 tables of non-Hold ’em tournaments daily, including Omaha, Pot Limit Omaha, HORSE and a new Mixed Games Tournament with favorites like 2-7 Triple Draw, 7 Stud High/Low and Crazy Pineapple.

“The Golden Nugget, of course, loves No Limit Hold ’em, as many of our players do. However, there are other varieties of poker that are really re-gaining popularity,” said John Colville, director of poker at the property. “We pride ourselves in catering to our players’ wants and feel hosting these non-Hold ’em events do just that.”

Each tournament is a trophy event and begins at noon daily, with buy-ins of $230. Each features an 8,000 starting chip stack with additional 2,000 bonus chips available for $10 more at registration.

“With the addition of these non-Hold ’em tournaments to our great lineup, there will be plenty of options for our players to enjoy,” Colville added.

For those players still wanting a Hold ’em game, the series will also hold its very popular $125 No Limit Hold ’em Tournaments at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. daily. This tournament will start players at 8,000 in chips and feature 30 minute blind levels.

In addition to The Grand Fall Classic Poker Series, the Golden Nugget features $65 No Limit Hold ’em tournaments at 11 a.m., 3 p.m., 7 p.m. and 1 a.m. daily, where each buy-in gets 2,000 in chips and an opportunity for one $40 re-buy, for 3,000 more.

Registration for The Grand Fall Classic Poker Series is now open and seats can be secured by stopping by the Golden Nugget Poker Room or by contacting John Colville, director of Golden Nugget poker, at 702-386-8164 or e-mail at .
