“It’s been an exciting year for Hollywood. Our newly renovated room allows us to continue to offer the best live poker action and weekly tournaments in the region,” poker room manager Randy Kiefer said.
The poker room boasts eight weekly tournaments with new blind structures starting chips. Promotions include Full House Mondays, high hands and the Harley-Davidson Giveaway. Also, the bad beat hit on July 21 for nearly $441K.

DPC SEPT. 8: The winner of the Delaware Poker Championship II at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino on Sept. 8 will receive the spoils of victory with not only a guaranteed $50K prize pool and bracelet, but a mammoth trophy.

“We felt that while poker players play for the coveted bracelet the way professional football players play for the ring as a symbol of a championship, we wanted to commemorate the event with more flare. So we decided to complement it with a significant trophy to proudly be displayed,” Dover Downs director of table games Robert Westerfield said.

The Delaware Poker Championship main event has a $450 buy-in for 20K chips. There are 30-minute levels for this noon event and no add-ons or rebuys. Early registration has begun so get your seat today.
