I know in 83 it was at Ceaser's Palace as I was there and finished 16-32. They had 72 tables set up in a L shaped room. There were 40 practice tables and 32 tournament tables.

That was a classy tournament and Miller Lite did it right. Great setting, plenty of referees, nice venue, etc.
Yes, they used some special panoramic camera. I always wondered why the picture was never used. Did they never hear of cropping, dodging and shading.
