Binions: Is Poker In the Cards

Management at Binion's Gambling Hall and Hotel is offering more questions than answers about next year's Binion's Poker Classic, an inaugural tournament that would follow the 2006 World Series of Poker.

Binion's, which began devising its own poker tournament after Harrah's Entertainment Inc. bought the rights to the World Series of Poker in 2004, is still negotiating key aspects of the tournament, including television coverage and a prize pool.

The tournament will take place in fall 2006, though an exact date will likely take a few weeks to sort out as other poker tournaments finalize their schedules, Binion's General Manager Brian Eby said Friday.

Fall has emerged as an "optimal time" because a number of popular tournaments have emerged in the weeks leading up to summer's World Series of Poker, Eby said.
