Trop debuts poker

May 2, 2005 3:16 AM

The Tropicana Resort & Casino has tossed its green eye-shade into the poker ring with a new poker room on the casino floor.

Texas Hold’em poker, which has taken the nation by storm, is being played just like the tournament-style games seen on the Travel Channel, ESPN and Fox.

Various table limits are offered for novice to experienced players; $1-$3, $2-$6, and no limit Texas Hold’em.

The room is complete with six poker tables. Each wall displays historic Las Vegas photos, as well as a 42-inch plasma television with continuous sports feed.

The new poker room is near the escalator to the MGM Grand walkway and across from the Harbor bar.

The room is open from 10 a.m. to 4 a.m., daily.
