Ray Kot Poker Open Tournament coming to the Taj
Jan. 24 was Kot's birthday.
Qualifying satellite tournaments will be held each hour from noon to midnight on Monday, Jan. 23.
Donations from the event will benefit the Ray Kot Memorial Fund. The memorial fund benefits Kot's only son Drew and will be used for his education and support.
Anyone can play in this tournament, including key-license Atlantic City employees.
The grand prize is an all-expense-paid trip to the 2010 Super Bowl on Feb. 7 in Miami, Fla., or the cash equivalent, which includes airfare, two nights of deluxe hotel accommodations, food credit of $250 per person and two tickets to the game.
Second place receives a 50-inch LCD TV and third gets a Super Bowl party for 10 in the Luxury Suite in the new Chairman Tower at the Taj. Additional prizes will be awarded to anyone that makes the final table of the championship round.
