Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. today announced the 5th annual MBA Poker Championship will be held January 15-17th at Caesars Palace Las Vegas. Interested MBA candidates can register at http://mbajungle.com/poker.

Harrah's will host MBA students from across the country for their chance to win thousands of dollars in prize money. This year's MBA Poker Tournament will again donate a portion of the proceeds to the Alzheimer's Association and Cleveland Clinic. In the first four years, the event generated $33,000 for the Alzheimer's Association.

The 2009 prize pool totaled over $65,000 in cash. Over 600 MBA students and alumni from some of the country's best universities -- including Duke, Harvard, Kellogg, Stanford GSB, UCLA, University of Chicago Booth School, and Wharton -- gathered at Caesars Palace. Harrah's Entertainment's MBA poker tournament offers MBA students and alumni alike the opportunity to test their poker skills and their school spirit against MBAs from top schools.

"This is an important networking and recruiting event for the MBA candidates and our recruiting team," said Brad Warga, vice president of talent acquisition, Harrah's Entertainment. "MBA poker players tend to think quickly on their feet and be quite quantitatively apt -- two attributes highly coveted by businesses."
