Poker Author Challenges set for Binions and Taj Mahal

by Lou on December 5, 2006

I’m happy to announce that both Binions in Las Vegas and the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City are excited about hosting Poker Author Challenges early in 2007.

The dates selected are:

Sunday, January 21 at Binions, Las Vegas


Sunday, March 4th at Trump Taj Mahal, Atlantic City

Last year’s Poker Author Tournament last year at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City was a big success, and we think things will be even better in 2007.

Each event will feature a very affordable $120 buy-in, book bounties on the poker authors, a two hour time frame for an “author meet and greet book-signing event” (10 a.m. to noon), and an early start to the tournament (12:00 noon).

Super agent Sheree Bykofsky is still working out the details and seeking additional sponsors and added prizes, and many of the participating authors will be providing books and promotional items.

Hold’em Radio and the Gambler’s Bookshop are both on board for the Binion’s event. Hold’em Radio,, will do a live remote broadcast of the event and will interview a number of participating authors on site. Everything Hold’em Radio records will be available in the station archives and on i-Tunes as a podcast. Gambler’s Bookshop will be on hand to handle book sales.

Borders Books will take care of book sales and giveaways at the Taj event, as they did last year. There’s a good possibility that Hold’em radio will also be present at the Taj event if we can work out some details. Sheree Bykofsky and I also intend to launch our newest book, The Rules of Poker: Essentials For Every Game at the event.

As these events draw closer, you can look for more information right here on my blog.

For more information on this event, please contact Sheree Bykofsky, at
