The new Aladdin poker room has been packed since it opened last fall, and now it has added Texas Hold’em tournaments, Monday through Friday.

The action starts at 10 a.m. with The Breakfast Club Poker Shootout, followed at 1 p.m. by the No Limit Texas Hold’em tournament.

In addition, the 12-table poker room, which is located adjacent to the high limit slot area at Sinbbad’s Place, holds a No Limit Texas Hold’em tournament on Fridays at noon.

"Poker is the hottest demand in gaming right now and we understand the necessity to diversify the limits," said Edna Dalton, director of poker operations. "At the Aladdin poker room, we strive to bring our guests the best promotions, tournaments and service as well as provide a comfortable playing atmosphere."

Continental breakfast, free poker lessons and registration for the Breakfast Club Poker Shootout begin at 9 a.m. with a $35 buy-in.

Registration for the 1 p.m. poker tourney starts at 10 a.m. with a $50 buy-in and one optional $40 re-buy.

The breakfast tournament offers players a $5 add-on for 50 percent more gaming chips, which must be taken at registration while the 1 p.m. tournament offers a $10 add-on.

Friday’s noon tournament starts with a $100 buy-in and offers a $10 add-on.

In addition to the weekly tournaments, the Aladdin poker room deals a variety of classics including Omaha, Seven Card Stud and the popular, tournament-tested Texas Hold’em, both limit and no-limit games.

Playing 26 hands, the High Hand Jackpot promotion also offers guests the opportunity to win extra money.

The smoke-free poker room is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
