2008 World Series of Poker Set for May 30 through July 17

Harrah’s
Entertainment, Inc. announced today that the 39th annual World Series of Poker Presented
by

Milwaukee’s Best Light will be staged at the
Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in

Las
Vegas from May 30 through July 17, 2008.

“The
team is still hard at work on the schedule of events for next year, but we’ve
received so many requests for the dates that we decided to announce them
now,” said Jeffrey Pollack, WSOP Commissioner.

“We’ll
actually open the WSOP tournament room the week of May 26th for two special
events,” said Geno Iafrate, vice president and assistant general manager
of the

Rio. “This ‘soft opening’ will
give players a chance to register early and avoid the lines we had last year
during opening weekend — our busiest time.”
