Poker Hall of Famers in Attendance
This year, fans will also get the chance to rub elbows with two stellar poker ambassadors in Linda Johnson and Jan Fisher on Friday, June 18. From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., the duo will be on hand to meet, greet, sign autographs, and take selfies with registered show visitors.
"Jan and I are very excited to be at the Casino Collectibles show," Johnson told PokerNews. "I have always been interested in anything poker-related. I haven't been to the show in many years and I'm sure there are lots of items available now that weren't available years ago. I'm looking forward to adding to my collection."
What’s more, Johnson and Fisher will put their poker experience to work in the Casino Collectibles Association’s members-only Poker Tournament that starts at 7 p.m. Friday evening, June 18th. The bounties will be on the pros, and they are providing autographed books they have co-authored as bounty awards. It’s not too late to join the CCA and get in on the tournament. Otherwise, railbirds will be welcome to watch the action.
Johnson and Fisher, co-owners of CardPlayer Cruises, are well-known in the poker world. The former is one of the founders of both the World Poker Tour (WPT) and Tournament Directors Association (TDA). The former publisher of Card Player Magazine, Johnson was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2011.
