The fine folks at Wicked Chops Poker are reporting this morning that The Real Deal, the poker game show at the Venetian, has closed after an 8 week run. As the blog mentions, a combination of a poor economy and doing a poker show 3 years after the peak of the poker boom surely doomed this project from the start.

    My prediction in July was that it wouldn’t be running on January 1.
