September Packed with Poker Happenings at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino

Delaware Poker Championship V highlights a busy month.

Dover, DE, August 21, 2015 --( September is shaping up to be a busy, and potentially lucrative, month for poker players at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino. A variety of events are planned, headlined by the return of the fifth annual Delaware Poker Championship.

The Crown Royal Poker Room will play host to the event as part of the Delaware Championship Weekend on Saturday, Sept. 5 beginning at 11:15 a.m. The field will walk away with a guaranteed prize of at least $100,000, a unique trophy shaped like the state of Delaware, and bragging rights. Buy-in is $560.

The $100,000 event is the marquee game in the middle of championship week, which runs from Aug. 31 to Sept. 7. Four other guaranteed tournaments include the Thursday, Sept. 3 game with $5,000 in guaranteed prize money and a $125 buy-in. The Friday, Sept. 4 game is a $150 buy-in with $20,000 in guaranteed prize money. The Sunday, Sept. 6 game is a $120 buy-in with $15,000 in guaranteed prize money, and Monday, Sept. 7 is a $5,000 guaranteed game with just a $35 buy-in.

The two satellite tournaments are slated for Monday, Aug. 31 and Wednesday, Sept. 2 at 7:15 p.m. Buy-in for each is $65, and 1-in-10 will win a seat into the Delaware Poker Championship each night.

During each of the five tournaments (Sept. 3-7), a Royal Caribbean cruise for two to the Bahamas will be given away during the first break of each tournament. This is open to all active players in the Poker Room at the time of the drawing.

Additional fun is planned throughout the month:

- Five-card-Charlies: If the five cards on the board add up to 21 or less in your Texas Hold ’em game, the table receives $50 in splash pots.
- Winner Takes All: Beginning on Sunday, Sept. 13 at 11:15 a.m., a $500 guaranteed prize pool with a “winner takes all” game will be played with only a $20 buy-in.
- Featured games: Thursdays at 7:15 p.m. will feature $35 buy-ins and a $500 guaranteed prize pool. These Omaha games are available Sept. 10, 17 and 24.
