For several years there was a huge surge in interest in playing poker as more people began playing poker online which translated to more interest in playing poker in Las Vegas casinos; Many Las Vegas resorts in turn added or expanded their poker rooms but as interest has waned several resorts have closed or down scaled their poker rooms. The latest announced poker room closure on the Strip is of the 9-table poker room at the Luxor which is due to close on June 18th. Although the popularity of poker has waned since its peak and more poker rooms could close although there is still lots of people interested in poker so many will remain open.
