Gold Nugget to host film-inspired tournament

Timeless Wonder

Plenty of movies have mimicked the poker world, and plenty of today's poker players have been inspired by movies about the game, but now the Golden Nugget has created a tournament inspired by a movie.

The casino will host The Grand Poker Series June 6 through July 6 this summer. The tournament series is based on The Grand, a poker mockumentary filmed at the Golden Nugget which will be released to theaters this March.

The movie is a comedy that revolves around a poker tournament, and rather than following a script, the actors improvised based on what their characters are supposed to be like as they play a poker tournament.

The movie has several stars such as Woody Harrelson and Superhero Movie Writer to Make Poker Movie
