Binion's Horseshoe Casino, now operated as "Binion's Gambling Hall and Hotel" was the home of modern tournament poker. It hosted big poker cash games in addition to the World Series of Poker which was hosted at the casino for more than 30 years. Every WSOP Main Event Champion has their picture hanging in the casino as homage to both the world champions and to the history between poker and the casino.
Poker is still going strong at Binion's with regular $1-$2 games going for No Limit Hold'em tables 24-hours a day. There are also three to four daily tournaments running that usually have a $90 buy-in that host fairly soft fields. Since being remodeled in 2008 the casino has drawn positive reviews for the newly upgraded downtown Las Vegas experience. All tables are equipped with auto-shufflers and there are now side tables for table-side food service. The design of the room is adorned with widescreen televisions and dark wood veneers to give a real "sports" flavor to what is an entertaining poker room experience.
