Taj Mahal Casino is closed, Atlantic City mourns
“Eighth wonder of the world”, as Donald Trump himself called Taj Mahal has officially closed its doors in the morning of October, 10th. The most favorable forecast predict its work renewal in spring, but the majority thinks this closure is permanent.
“I still remember the times when Taj used to be the most popular place for playing poker in the whole Atlantic City,” one of the players writes on 2+2 forums.
Really, in the end of 90s Taj Mahal prospered. The Casino opened in the 1990, right after gambling became legal in New Jersey. In 1996 U.S. Poker Championship tournament with $10,000 has become the first one which had buy-in equal to the one of World Series tournaments.
