Treasure Island poker room gets new digs

Treasure Island will move its poker room next to its sports book this week.

The TI poker room on Thursday will take over the old location of Canter's Deli, which had been limited to counter service during the renovation. The former deli counter, meanwhile, is being changed to Richie's Chicago-Style Beef and Dogs. No opening date has yet been set for the new hot dog stand.

The poker room will hold a "grand reopening" on Friday, featuring tournaments with $55 buy-ins. TI is also offering $1,000 house-funded guaranteed tournaments twice daily and static payouts of $250 for a royal flush and $100 for a straight flush.
