Venetian Extends Deep Stack II Through July 10

by Lou on July 2, 2007

People—poker players in particular—are voting with their feet this summer in Las Vegas. The World Series of Poker, which has set a number of attendance records this year, has added another Day One to their schedule, making four, first-days of play for the growing player flights that will compete in this year’s $10,000 buy-in, no-limit hold’em tournament.

Deep Stack II, the Venetian’s tournament series that began June 1 and was set to conclude on July 1, was extended through July 10, with $1,060 buy-in events every day. With a popularity factor beyond the expectations of the Venetian’s poker room manager, Kathy Raymond, it’s easy to see why they decided to extend their tournament series. I blogged about thie event earlier, dubbing it, Poker’s Little Engine That Could. I’m not sure what kind of attendance they expected for this tournament series, but it was enough to convince them them add ten days to the series!

Things are going great guns downtown too. Binion’s Poker Classic has been attracting record crowds for their low buy-in series that mirrors the events at the World Series of Poker.

Everyone loves poker, and people have crowded into Las Vegas this year in record numbers. There are still a few good weeks of poker remaining in the tournament season, and even if you don’t fancy tournament poker, there are plenty of side games all over town.
