Although the official announcement has not been made, it appears that the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino has been sold to Boyd Gaming.  Harrah's has been looking to sell the property for months and it appears that they have finally unloaded the off-strip casino. For those of you that don't know, the Rio is the current home of the World Series of  Poker.  The WSOP moved there in 2004 after Binion's Horseshoe was purchased by Harrah's Entertainment.

WSOP 400x300
The World Series of Poker is just ONE DAY AWAY!  Players from all over are already beginning to descend upon Vegas and beginning their pre-WSOP preparations.   The poker media is in town having their pre-WSOP meetings and Harrah’s has been in meetings for the last couple of days in preparation. What have I been doing?  Playing video poker and watching Doctor Who mostly.   While that may not be the most exciting preparation for the WSOP, we have a long six weeks ahead of us.
