HEADLINE: Venetian Poker Room Running Deep Stack Extravaganza II

This is a reminder to everyone that the Venetian Poker Room is running the Deep Stack Extravaganza II now! Designed to complement and run concurrently with the World Series of Poker®, a subsidiary of Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE:HET), the Deep Stack Extravaganza II began June 1, 2007, and ends July 1, 2007. The tournament, back by player demand, starts with a significant amount of chips, very generous blind structures and 40 or 60 minute levels. The month-long event includes No Limit Hold’em, Omaha 8 or Better, P.L.O. and H.O.R.S.E. tournaments.

The Venetian Poker Room “flopped” a winning hand with their first Deep Stack Extravaganza, held in the first quarter of 2007, hosting more than 4,700 entrants and a total prize pool of $1.6 million.

“The idea of hosting the Deep Stack Extravaganza II was proposed by an overwhelming number of players from our first Deep Stack Extravaganza. The players were so excited about the structure of our tournaments, that we had numerous requests to host another event,” stated Kathy Raymond, director of poker room operations. “Players enjoy our tournament format because it offers the feel and experience of playing in a major tournament without the major buy-ins.”

Placing in the money at the Deep Stack Extravaganza II not only earns players cash, but also awards points that could put many on their way to winning even more. The four players that accumulate the most player points throughout the entire event will be awarded Best Overall Player cash awards. One-half of one percent will be withheld from the prize pool of each daily tournament and added to the best overall player total prize pool. The standings will be updated daily and posted in The Venetian Poker Room. The winners will be announced on July 1st.

Kathy Raymond added that this is one tournament not to miss as she estimates the combined total prize pool from the entire tournament will be upwards of $5 million.

Additionally, promotional poker rates will be available to participants of the Deep Stack Extravaganza II. The following rates are valid June 1st – July 17th: Sunday – Thursday is $119 per night and Friday – Saturday is $189 per night. Promotional rates are based on availability and subject to tournament or cash game participation. Please call 1-877-444-5777 for reservations.

The Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino will be providing poker players with complimentary shuttle service to and from the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. A schedule will be posted at the World Series of Poker® and inside The Venetian Poker Room.

Registration for each event begins at 9am daily and tournament play begins at 12pm. All tournaments will be played through completion or until 2am; whichever comes first. Play will resume at 4pm and will continue until a winner has been declared.
