CEO Poker Tour event competes with WSOP

While you're in Las Vegas this summer for the World Series of Poker, there will be plenty of other poker action to check out with various tournaments going on. One of which is the CEO Poker Tour event at the Venetian Casino and Resort.

The CEO Poker Challenge will take place July 2-8, coinciding with the last few days before and leading into the WSOP Main Event, which begins July 6.

It may not be as prestigious as the WSOP, but the CEO Poker Challenge will see winners taking home a cash prize as well as a bracelet and trophy.

"We are the most inexpensive bracelet event in Las Vegas in July," says William Peraza, CEO Poker CEO. "We are offering players the ability to play poker for bracelets, trophies, and cash, while networking in the evening, all for buy-ins starting at $500 - $2,500."

Pre-registration for the CEO Poker Challenge events opened up Tuesday at CEOPokerTour.com.

The tournament is open to all players who want to play in a Texas Hold'em tournament and network with other companies at the same time.
