Magic City Casino Owner Moves Forward With Poker Room Plan
Havenick and a group of partners own a gambling license to operate a poker room that is currently used to hold card games at Miami Jai-Alai during the summer. Libbin informed us that he'd like to work out a deal that would allow Havenick to run a poker tournament at the Miami Beach Convention Center in exchange for sharing the revenues with the city.
Havenick confirmed his meeting with Libbin, but he stressed that his company is not currently negotiating with the city. The casino executive says the license can be transferred from Miami Jai Alai to another venue. We're guessing if the parimutuel oversight agency grants its blessing, that negotiations would certainly intensify.
