Being the state champion for any sport, whether wrestling, baseball, or football, would be sweet! But you may be past the weight allowance for wrestling, or maybe your knees can’t take any more football. If a sports championship doesn’t seem to be your destiny, there may be another game you can master. The Crown Royal Poker Room at Dover Downs will crown their new champion on Saturday, September 8th. The tournament will start at noon.
With 20,000 in starting chips, 30 minute levels, and a buy-in of $450.00, it can be you. The pay-out is a guarantee of $50,000. So, there is an even better reason to hold this title… money! While the trophy (shaped like the state of Delaware) and the fancy prize bracelet may seem to priceless, their actual value is over $1500. There are plenty of single table satellite’s being offered, for only $60. The bad beat as of this writing, is over $60,000, the highest in the state. Dover Downs Hotel & Casino is a luxurious Four Star Diamond hotel. The distinction of this prestigious award is bestowed upon only premier hotels.
There is so much to do while at Dover Downs. There is harness racing, boxing, entertainment, excellent restaurants, and plenty of cash action in the poker room. Pete McGuire is the man in charge of this poker room.
