Orlando Jai-Alai, unable to reach a deal with city or county officials that would allow it to open a poker room, told employees on Thursday that it will close on Dec. 27, the <a href="http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/seminole/orl-jai-alai-fronton-closing-102909,0,6902108.story">Orlando Sentinel</a> reports.

After Orlando Jai-Alai closes, Sanford Orlando Kennel Club will be the only parimutuel in Florida without local approval to open a poker room. That greyhound track has been fighting vigorously for approval.
