On December 24-25, 2013 Jews from around the world will gather in Las Vegas to determine who is the "World's Best Jewish Poker Player". Professionals, celebrities and novices will all collide and grind it out on the felt. In this tournament, "Mazel Tov Is Just Not Enough".
The tournament will take place in the Cantor Poker Room inside the Palms Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. A Jewish-themed environment will add visual excitement and tons of laughs for all of the participants. The Palms Resort, Hotel & Casino offers world class dining, accommodations, nightlife, gaming and a movie theater.
During the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day holidays, Jews have struggled to find things to do. After many years of eating Chinese food and renting movies the founders were shocked to learn how many Jews played poker. The combination of these two elements created the Jewish Poker Championships.
