Dover Downs Hotel & Casino will award three Ante Up Poker Cruise packages in a tournament on Aug. 21.

The tournament at the casino in Dover, Del., will have a $45 buy-in and start at 2 p.m. Players will start with 7,500 units and levels will be 15 minutes long.

The final three players will each win an Ante Up Poker Cruise package for two for the Nov. 14 sailing aboard the Brilliance of the Seas, leaving from Tampa, Fla., and making stops in Cozumel, Mexico, and George Town, Grand Cayman.

This tournament replaces freeroll tournaments that had been scheduled for July 31, Aug. 7 and Aug. 21.

Ante Up Poker Cruises transforms the conference centers aboard regularly scheduled Royal Caribbean sailings into a professionally staffed and equipped poker room, complete with cash games, tournaments, free poker courses and an open-bar cocktail party.
