Prior to working for PNIA, Sartori worked as a poker room manager for the Palms, Morongo and Palace Station casinos. A hard worker from a small town, Joe was known throughout the industry as a good man who had a smile for all.
In addition to his work in the industry, he was, of course, a poker player and enthusiast as well. Here’s a nice bio write up done by Poker Player Magazine from back in 2006.
Condolences to Joe’s loved ones and the PNIA family.
