Binion's Gambling Hall & Hotel in Downtown Las Vegas, the birthplace of the World Series of Poker, will return to international poker competition in Fall 2006 with a new tournament, Binion's Poker Classic.

At a news conference today at the historic hotel/casino, Binion's General Manager Brian Eby and Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman announced that the Binion's Poker Classic will be a major tournament for the world's top players.

"No single name has ever been more associated with the game of poker than Binion's. We will again host the world's best players in the exact place where it all started 35 years ago," Eby said.

"Binion's Poker Classic will re-establish Downtown Las Vegas as the poker center of the world. And, an event of this magnitude will continue to revitalize the growth of Downtown," Mayor Goodman said.

Eby said that specific details of the tournament such as the number of events and entries, buy-ins and cash prizes will be announced by August 1. "But, Binion's is definitely back in the game and poker players as well as our thousands of loyal customers and poker fans will feel that as soon as they walk in the room," he said.
