World Poker Tour is headed to the DMV in Season XIV for the first-ever WPT Maryland. Held at the newly-minted Maryland Live! Casino, located fewer than 10 miles away from Baltimore-Washington International Airport, WPT Maryland kicks off on Sept. 25 and features a $3,500 buy-in and two starting flights.
Players are allowed one re-entry per starting flight, and if they bag chips at the end of both Day 1A and Day 1B, they will return for Day 2 with their largest stack. The final table concludes the six-event festival on Sept. 29.
Players who are unable to advance past Day 2 of WPT Maryland will have an opportunity to participate in a single re-entry, $7,500 buy-in high-roller event starting on Sept. 28. There are three other post-lim events on the schedule, including a $50,000 guaranteed, $575 buy-in tournament; a $575 buy-in pot-limit Omaha tournament; and a $100,000 guaranteed, $1,100 buy-in knockout bounty turbo.
Four mega-satellites to WPT Maryland are scheduled for Sept. 23, 24, and 25 at Maryland Live! Casino. “We’re thrilled to partner with the WPT to bring one of the biggest poker tours in the world to Maryland Live! Casino in September,” said Mike Smith, Director of Poker Operations at Maryland Live! Casino. “The sheer size of our Poker Room, with 52 tables, makes Maryland Live! the perfect location to host high-profile tournaments and events. We expect to attract poker enthusiasts from across the county to participate.”
