Vegas spring poker schedule taking shape

New Poker King Club Opens At The Venetian Macau

The World Series of Poker is always the biggest game in town in Las Vegas each spring and summer but its far from the only game in town.

Vegas poker rooms have cheaper events running alongside for poker players with smaller bankrolls, and those looking for action in between WSOP tourneys starting May 28.

Three well-known Las Vegas tournament series released their schedules lately, allowing poker players to plan their own schedules form May to July.
