Five win cruises in Dover Downs' Ante Up Set Sail Series

November 17, 2015, Scott Long  

Ellen M. Douras, Mercedis Blake, David Strittmatter, Michael Wilson and James Pickett were winners of Ante Up Poker Cruise packages in the recently concluded Ante Up Set Sail Series event at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Dover, Del.

Players earned a raffle ticket for each event in the Masters Poker Series event that they entered, with five names drawn on the final day, with each winner getting an Ante Up Poker Cruise package for the April 18 sailing out of Port Canaveral, Fla. In addition, all cashers in all events earned Ante Up Poker Tour Player of the Year points.

The Ante Up Set Sail Series designation is placed on any tournament series that awards at least five Ante Up Poker Cruise packages. Ante Up Poker Cruises transforms the conference centers aboard regularly scheduled Royal Caribbean and NCL sailings into a professionally staffed and equipped poker room, complete with cash games, tournaments, free poker classes and an open-bar cocktail party.
