Delaware Park Poker Classic attracts nearly 10,000

April 23, 2012  

Adam Cook of Baltimore put the exclamation point on the three-week-long Delaware Park Poker Classic by taking home the championship title and $72,641. The three-day main event saw 312 players vying for $302,640.

The DPPC kicked off March 14 with a $230 no-limit hold’em event that drew 500 players for a prize pool of $97K. Camacho Harris, another Baltimore resident, captured the title and $22,789 for first place.

Overall, the DPPC attracted 9,223 players to generate $1,427,146 in prize money. Other highlights from the series included a heads-up championship and the Greg Raymer Invitational (565 players).

ANOTHER BAD BEAT: The Crown Royal Poker Room at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino hit its bad-beat jackpot again, netting $35,287. Dwayne Waller of Felton, Del., earned $17,643 for his “losing” hand of aces full of kings. The winning hand received $8,821. The table’s other eight players each received $1,102.

MANAGER NEWS: Delaware Park and Dover Downs each recently named new poker room managers. Kevin Castora, who had been running the Park room for months, got the official nod, while Pete McGuire has replaced Frank Foti at Dover. Foti returned to his Atlantic City roots to run the poker room at Revel. Next month we will take a closer look at Castora and McGuire.
