Calling all poker players...you won't want to miss this one! The Trump Taj Mahal Casino will be the site of the largest cash poker game in Atlantic City. With 10 players buying into these high stakes games for at least $100,000 each, the expected money in play on the table each night is over $1 million.
This four-day series of events is sponsored by the Executive Poker Tour. The founder of the Executive Poker Tour, Rick Rahim, states "We're expecting a terrific mix of amateur poker players as well as many executives who desire to support our organization." Rahim elaborated that many professional poker players have committed to attending the tournaments and signing autographs.
Preliminary tournaments will be held Wednesday, October 24 and Thursday, October 25, with the first hand scheduled to be dealt at 7:00 PM. Play is expected to last until at least 2:00 AM.
The main event will begin Friday, October 26 and will be filmed for television broadcast at a later unspecified date. Players participating in the main event will be given equal exposure by being rotated through the Featured TV Table all day Friday.
Among the notable poker players who have been invited to play in the Million Dollar game is Rhett Butler, the 2006 World Series of Poker fifth place finisher. His lifetime tournament winnings are over $3.3 million. Also slated to attend the main event are Lee Childs, the 2007 World Series of Poker Final Table, and Steve Dannenmann, the 2005 World Series of Poker Final Table.
As you can imagine, with One Million Dollars in cash on the poker room table, security will be extremely tight but the games might be the loosest on the planet.
