Kansas Star to open poker room this month

The Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane, Kansas, will open a five-table poker room this month.

The casino wasn't expected to open the poker room until construction on its permanent casino finished next January, but opened the poker room in advance because of player demand, Fred Mann of the Wichita Eagle reports.

The non-smoking room will offer tournaments and promotions, the Eagle reported.
