Poker Author’s Challenge this Sunday at Binion’s

by Lou on January 19, 2007

I’m off to Las Vegas today for the Poker Author’s Challenge that will be held at Binion’s, this Sunday at noon. Earlier that day, at 10:00 AM there’s be a book signing by all the authors in attendance, so if you’re in the area, either bring a book and the author will sign it, or you can buy books by your favorite authors right in Binion’s poker room.

The Gambler’s Book Shop, a Las Vegas institution and a de riguer stop for many poker players and all poker authros whenever thye are in Vegas, will set up a temporary book store right in the poker room of Binion’s during this event.

While you’re at it, why not sit down and play against your favorite poker authors. The tournament is open to everyone and I’m told there will be a bounty on the head of each author. For $120 you can have a bang-up time, play some poker, meet and greet your favorite poker writers, get autographed copies of your favorite poker books, meet and greet the authors on hand, and have a wonderful time in the process.

The entire event will be broadcast live on, and many author interviews will be conducted that can be listened to on the station’s archives and as a podcast in i-Tunes. If I’m knocked out of the tournament, I’ll turn into a broadcaster and do some of the tournament play-by-play and auhtor interviews. That’s me over on the right, broadcasting at last year’s WSOP.

I’m hoping you’ll be there too. I f you are, please take the time to say hello and let me know that you heard about this event either on this blog on Holdemradio. We expect this event to be at least as enjoyable as the Poker Author’s Challenge held in March 2006 at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City.

Come on down and play some poker with us!
