The Vegas Grinder: Bellagio Prelims, Caesars Palace Classic and Venetian Deep Stack All Return This Month


There’s been some downtime for poker in Las Vegas since the World Series of Poker wrapped up a couple of months ago. Most of the tournament action has moved elsewhere around the world, but things will be heating back up in the desert as the November Nine inches closer and closer.

It's not all about tournaments in Las Vegas right now. If tournaments aren't your thing, head over to The Wynn to get in on some great cash game action and take part in their $50,000 October Giveaway. All you have to do is sign up for a Red Card and start playing at the tables. Everyday, five $500 cash drawings take place at 11:00 a.m, 2:00 p.m.. 5:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., and 11:00 p.m. When you start playing, you'll earn one raffle ticket for just sitting down plus one ticket for each hour played. If you jump into The Wynn's daily tournament, the entry will earn you three tickets. The promotion is running from October 4 through 29.

Check out all the details about the promotion on Wynn's website and call 702-770-7654.

One of the most prominent venues for poker in Las Vegas is the Bellagio and starting on October 8, the Festa al Lago tournament series kicks off. There are 13 events scheduled covering the games of Omaha hi/lo, pot-limit Omaha and no-limit hold’em. There should be plenty of action and big names mixing it up on the felt so if you're looking to take a few shots, these are your events.
