Sarasota poker room to open on Sundays

   One-Eyed Jacks, the poker room at the Sarasota Kennel Club, will from now on be open on Sundays.
   It's been closed on Sunday ever since it opened about seven years ago, so some local poker players figured that laws required that. Poker players from the Bradenton area have had to drive to Derby Lane in St. Petersburg, or to a poker room in Fort Myers or one of three poker rooms in Hillsborough County if they wanted to play on Sunday.
   Hours are being expanded on other days too. One-Eyed Jacks will now open every day at 10 a.m., and close at 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
   The Sarasota Kennel Club is at 5400 Bradenton Road. For information, call 941-355-7744 ext. 1054 or go to
