Caesars Palace launches new Winter Poker Classic

January 22, 2011 by Dan Brown in Poker News

The new Caesars Palace Winter Poker Classic Tournament is a series of 27 events that will take place from 17 January through 4 February in the famous casino’s Poker Room.

Buy-ins for the events will begin from an economical $120 and steadily rise to $550 for the No Limit Hold’em Championship event which will commence on 3 February. There are two special events in the new series: the Oklahoma Johnny Hale Seniors Event on 29 January which will send its winner to 2011 World Series of Poker Seniors Championship Event as well as please him or her with a large cash prize; and, the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship – a $230 buy-in tournament that is open to everyone in a traditional multi-table tournament for its first day but will convert to a play-off heads-up freezeout format once the number of players left in the competition reaches 16. The overall winner will receive a $20,000 seat for the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship in March; essentially the opportunity to play on national television against poker’s biggest names for a look in at taking home the $500,000 top prize that was won last year by Annie Duke.

The enormous Poker Room at Caesars Palace’s offers 24-hour poker action in both its main room and adjoining side room. There are numerous tournaments organized at different hours on a daily basis and cash games of all stakes. The new Winter Classic Poker Tournament is like a sister event to the Caesars Classic Tournament that is celebrated every autumn.
