John Colville, Poker Manager at the Golden Nugget, Las Vegas, reports the signing of another contract with Poker Player newspaper to sponsor their second annual tournament, the 2013 Poker Player of the Year. The event will be held on July 4th, Independence Day, at the Golden Nugget Casino in Las Vegas. The total Buy-in and Entry fee is to be $600, with no re-buys. Seating is limited to 600 players, so early sign-up (to guarantee your seat) is recommended. The event is scheduled before the main event of the WSOP begins, so a large number of poker tournament players will be in town. Last year’s event was won by John Parker of Auckland, New Zealand. Satellites are expected to be held for this event at the properties of various Poker Player advertisers, on dates leading up to the event. A schedule will be published in Poker Player newspaper as it develops. The winner of the event will be presented with a SOLID GOLD ring, called the “Golden Nugget” signaling the annual champion.
Stan Sludikoff, Poker Player Publisher, said: “We are delighted to again sponsor and host this event by request of John Colville. Come join the ‘fireworks’ at the Golden Nugget on Independence Day. This is something you won’t want to miss.”
