Starting today, we will host a feature here at Poker Junkie that I'm dubbing "Flashback Friday. " Each week we will take a look back at a major poker confrontation, hopefully with a tie in to recent poker news. In this inaugural installment we take a look back at the 1999 United States Poker Championship Main Event. The Trump Taj Mahal poker room shut down this past Sunday for renovations but for many years the room was host to the USPC.

Trump Taj Closure Means So Long to My Home Poker Room

Taj Poker Room 400x300
If you've been following the news wires over the last few days, then you know that Trump Entertainment is filing bankruptcy and the Trump Taj Mahal could be closing in November. With that closure comes the shutdown of Trump Taj's Poker Room, a room that I personally consider my home poker room. Up until a couple years ago, Atlantic City was the closest place I could travel to and play live poker. From 2006 to 2008, I was up there almost every month and every few months from 2009 to around 2011.
