The Delaware Park Casino poker room will host its Winter Classic on Jan. 1-13. The series will have 21 events, kicking off with a deepstack $30K guarantee on Jan. 1. There will be a wide variety of events, including many double-stacks (30K starting chips), stud, HORSE, seniors and a ladies event. The main event is Jan. 11 with a $100K guarantee. Most events have satellites to make it cheaper to enter.

TOYS FOR TOTS: The Royal Crown Poker Room at Dover Downs Hotel and Casino hosted a charity event to benefit the Dover Toys for Tots campaign. The event had 57 entrants and more than 100 toys were donated by the players. This is another example of how Delaware players care about those less fortunate in the community.

MARYLAND LIVE: In addition to the daily tournament schedule, Maryland Live will host satellites for the Poker Players Championship worlds in Aruba in October. The poker room will hold $60 re-entry satellites to win a seat into a $520 satellite for PPC Aruba packages. The satellites will be Jan. 3-18 at 11:15 a.m. daily and Sundays at 7:15 will be the $520 satellite.

D.C. CHARITY CHAMPIONSHIP: All In Enterprises will host a series of charitable tournaments throughout Washington, D.C. Beginning Jan. 25-26, tournaments will benefit local charities and lead up to the main event Feb. 8-9.
