ANCHORAGE - The annual Alaska Hold'em Poker Tournament hasn't folded yet.
Organizers said they've been given the green light to hold the tourney by the state attorney general's office.
Rondy board President Ernie Hall said the event was initially canceled because organizers didn't have time to clear up legal issues raised by the state Department of Revenue. Hall said the concern was over a pre-qualifying round planned for last fall in which entrants would pay $200 for a dinner and to play poker afterward. That event was canceled after it was questioned by the Revenue Department.
But on Friday, Hall told the Anchorage Daily News they have been cleared to hold the event Saturday at the Egan Center.
