Correction: I mistakenly posted the wrong dates of the Wynn Classic in Issue 17, the correct dates are February 28-March 21. For more information on the Wynn Classic see their ad in this issue of Poker Player Newspaper [Read the PDF].
Correction: I also wrote about the new Graton Resort & Casino and inadvertently stated the casino was located in La Jolla, oops, Graton is located in Northern California near Rohnert Park and is expected to open by the end of 2013. They will soon be employing over 1,500 people and they need dealers. No experience is necessary; they are willing to train the right people through their free casino dealer school.
