Bicycle Casino Hosts Legends of Poker Tournament

More than 3 weeks of Legends of Poker events at the Bicycle Casino have led to the poker event that every poker enthusiasts waits for-the world poker tour $10,000 Legends of Poker No-Limit Holdem poker main event. It started on August 23rd, 2008 and there are a lot of players who can claim to the 2006 Legend of Poker Title. The Legends of Poker 21 preliminary events attracted players from all over the world for the Legends of Poker 21 event which includes Holdem to Omaha poker events.

Over 5,500 players participated in the events and the top finishers took a part of the $3,082,647 cash pools. Two poker legends have made an impressive show on this year's event as Barbara Enright won the LIPS ladies event and Men Nguyen won two preliminary events. On August 21st, 2008, the Bicycle Casino was the host to two special annual poker events. The first one was the Legend of Legends and Media Invitational, a freeroll event that gives the media the chance to play alongside the poker legends. Out of 81 participants, Chris Dolan from NBC won the top prize of $2,500 in cash and $2,500 to be donated to the Dolan's charity of choice, the Lakers Youth Foundation.

The top finishing poker legend was long time pro Randy Holland, who won the buy-in to the Legends of Poker main event worth $10,000. The second of the two events was one that the Bicycle Casino is happy to host each year, the Mariani/Buss No Limit Holdem event to benefit the Lakers Youth Foundation. Poker players attended the event for a cocktail reception and the 7:00 p.m. $1,000 entry tournament.

There were 116 poker players and a total of forty-one rebuys to make a prize pool of $136,590 and $100 from each buy-in cost and rebuy will be given to the Lakers Youth Foundation.

All of the August festivities have led to the main event as the WPT comes to the Bicycle Casino for the $10,000 Legends of Poker Main Event. The second day will take place on the following day to accommodate all of the participants. Last year, a total of 485 players competed in the event to create a cash pool of $4,607,500 cash pool. Poker pro Dan Harrington claimed victory and won more than $1.6 million.
