The Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in Atlantic City will once again host the sixth annual United States Poker Championship.

The 18-day event is scheduled to begin Dec. 7. More than 2,500 players are expected to enter the tourney, with buy-ins ranging from $300 to $7,500.

Players will compete in a variety of games, including Seven Card Stud, Texas Hold’em and Omaha High-Low, to name a few.
