WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!

THE FIRST TIME Pamela Anderson played poker she lost $250,000 and confessed, “I paid off a poker debt with sexual favors.” Now we know the reason professional poker player Rick Salomon said “I do” so quickly is because Pammie is about to be a mommy from Ricky’s marker.

NOW THROUGH Dec. 8, tickets to “Hans Klok-The Beauty of Magic” with Pam and a cast of 20 international dancers are half price. Call (702) 474-4000 and use code “FAM241.”

ONLY IN LAS VEGAS can looking for a job turn you into a millionaire ...

THE ROADRUNNERS (not the Oceanic Cable ones) are former CIA and USAF who worked on top-secret spy planes at the Nevada military base known as Area 51. It’s been more than 52 years since the beginning of U-2, A-12 and SR-51 programs. Now that their work is no longer of the “If I tell you, I’ll have to kill you” classification, they get together regularly to document their top secret lives.

SIR RICHARD BRANSON is the colorful billionaire businessman who founded Virgin Records and Virgin Atlantic Airlines. He kicked off the airlines’ new services between San Francisco and Las Vegas with a party that included Carmen Electra (actress) and Kyla Ebbert (the Hooters waitress who was kicked off a Southwest flight), showgirls, champagne and a wedding on the inaugural flight performed by the boss, who wore a black priest’s cassock and a large bejeweled silver cross.

Later he swapped his white collar for a full body harness and dropped from the Moon Nightclub at the Palms Fantasy Tower (407 feet high) at 80 feet per second, just like Spiderman. Gusty winds ripped the dare-devil knight’s pants and cut his hand.

THE FIRST POKER room to close after the game’s resurgence is at the Hilton Las Vegas. However, a video poker royal flush or $1,000 jackpot will get you a free logo sweatshirt.

THE KAHUKU High School Class of ‘73 is planning its 35th reunion (I wonder if they’ll recognize each other) in Las Vegas next year. To get in on the action, just e-mail classmate Larry Leong at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
