Trump Cards: The U.S. Poker Championship

(continued from page 1)

CA: Did the first time out meet your expectations?

Trump: It far exceeded them. I had no idea this tournament would be as important as it turned out. I thought we would have a nice tournament, that we would have some of the big pros. But I had no idea we'd get this kind of tournament, with all the press coverage, the magnitude of the players.

CA: Steve Wynn is coming to Atlantic City. Any chance of Donald Trump going to Las Vegas?

Trump: Yes, I think will go to Las Vegas. Las Vegas is having a little rough time now. The Trump Taj Mahal is number one in Atlantic City and the Trump Plaza is number two. There seems to be not much more I can do to eclipse myself in Atlantic City. It's hard to be number one and number two. You're competing against yourself. We want to continue to do great with these places, but, yes, I will be going to Las Vegas, perhaps in the not too distant future. The company is geared up to do whatever we want to do there. --MK
