The state of Delaware is small, but the prize pool isn’t. Nor is the 3 foot trophy shaped like the state of Delaware. The 3rd Delaware Park Poker Championship is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 7th. This is a one-day event, beginning at 11 am in the Crown Royal poker room. At least 200 players are expected to participate. The prize pool of $100,000 with a buy-in of $595 will garner 20,000 in chips, with 30 minute blinds and an excellent return for your investment. Single table satellite tournaments are available until the morning of the tournament, varying in price from $65 to $130, depending on the number of players. Super Satellite events will be on Sunday, Sept.1, Monday, and Tuesday the 2nd, at 7pm with a buy-in of only $35, and 3,000 in chips.
Thursday night on September 5th, at 7pm for only $130, you will have a good shot at winning a seat for the $100,000 guarantee main event with 5,000 chips in front of you. All players at the final table will receive a smaller version of the 3 foot trophy going to the winner; this will add some more fun and incentive for you.
