A legendary poker tournament deserves a legendary story.

According to local sources, Joe King won the rights to the land that is now Kings Beach in North Lake Tahoe in an all-night poker game in 1925. King took the winnings from that game to develop several buildings, some of which are still standing today.

In Joe’s honor, the winner of the tournament on February 20th will act as honorary mayor of Kings Beach in the Kings Beach SnowFest! parade on March 12, 2011. 

The Joe King Poker Tournament is slated for February 20, 7 p.m., at the Tahoe Biltmore’s Breeze Bar in Crystal Bay.

In legendary fashion, tourney participants and spectators are encouraged to dress in 1920s attire, and prizes will go to the best dressed man and woman. Attendees will also have the opportunity to compete for raffle prizes. All proceeds benefit the North Tahoe Business Association.

For those not in to Texas Hold-Em poker, there will also be a video poker tournament, live music, hors d’ouvres and no host bar throughout the evening.

Registration is limited.  Call 546-9000 or e-mail for details or to pay by credit card.
