Las Vegas casino to match poker pros against patrons

Las Vegas casino to match poker pros against patrons Cashing in on the poker craze, the Venetian Casino in Las Vegas is preparing to run a promotion which will match the patrons with some of the biggest names in the poker world. The casino, located on the Las Vegas Strip, will let audience members test their poker skill by playing against poker stars like Doyle Brunson, Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth. The name of the show is "The Real Deal!" and will begin in the fall. Casino visitors will have the chance to match up with the professional poker players face-to-face or by using interactive devices on their seats. A large basket of prizes will be won by the best players, while the show is scheduled to run six night a week. "The Venetian sets the standard for entertainment in Las Vegas and we are excited to add The Real Deal! to our existing line-up of world-class shows. When looking for a new concept to add to our entertainment lineup, we searched for an entirely new experience that would promote audience participation while incorporating well-known personalities that shine beyond the bright lights of the Strip -- we found that in The Real Deal!," Jason Gastwirth, vice president of entertainment for Las Vegas Sands Corp said in a press release distributed by the casino.
