Poker Author Challenge March 19 at the Taj in Atlantic City

by Lou on March 10, 2006

I’ll be at the Taj in Atlantic City next week, on March 19, to play in the first “Poker Author Challenge.” If you’r going to be in Atlantic City during that time, please stop by and say “hello.”

Poker Life, a hot new national poker lifestyle magazine from the publishers of Trump World, has gathered together the world’s leading poker authors for a one-day Texas Hold ‘em tournament extravaganza. “Poker Life’s ‘Poker Author Challenge’ is a unique event that lets the average player take on some of the biggest names in the game,” said Michael Jacobson, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Poker Life. “It gives everybody a chance to test their skills against poker greats and experience the action of the poker lifestyle firsthand.”

The tournament will be held on Sunday March 19th, in Atlantic City at Trump’s Taj Mahal Casino & Resort, and begins promptly at 6:15 PM in the casino’s legendary poker room. Preceding the tournament will be a special author meet-and-greet where players can speak with the experts and purchase autographed copies of the latest poker books. The featured book will be Secrets the Pros Won’t Tell You About Winning Hold’Em Poker by Lou Krieger and Sheree Bykofsky. Experts scheduled to attend include: Ashley Adams, Peter Alson, David Apostolico, Sheree Bykofsky, Mike Cappelletti, Gary Carson, Michael Craig, Greg Dinkin, Scott Harker, Anthony Holden, Susie Isaacs, Lou Krieger, Matt Lessinger, Neil D. Myers, Richard Sparks, Henry Stephenson, J. Phillip Vogel, and Kathy Watterson.

Unlike other major tournaments that cost thousands to enter, Poker Life has set the buy-in for this event at a reasonable $100 + $20. Not only will this attract more entrants—and increase the prize pool—but allow players of all levels to take part in the event. “We wanted to make sure that everybody has a chance to feel the thrill of playing against noted experts,” said Jacobson. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Players who would like to compete in the “Poker Author Challenge” may enter on March 19th, prior to the start of the tournament. For more information, players are encouraged to register early and to submit their name, address, and e-mail address to
