The $100,000-guaranteed Delaware Poker Championship highlights a massive Championship Weekend of seven elite events at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino’s Poker Room from Aug. 31-Sept. 5. The $100,000 Delaware Poker Championship tournament runs Sept. 2-4.
For the first time, the $100,000-guaranteed Delaware Poker Championship, which has a buy-in of $560, will feature two Flights for the opening levels. Flight A is Friday, Sept. 2 at 10:15 a.m. and Flight B is Saturday, Sept. 3 at 10:15 a.m. Players who are knocked out in Flight A will have the option to re-buy for Flight B or another chance at earning some of the $100,000 prize pool.
The remaining players in the no-limit Texas Hold’em event following the two opening Flights come together on Sunday, Sept. 4 to conclude the $100,000-guaranteed tournament. Players receive 30,000 in tournament chips to start the event and blind levels rise every 30 minutes.
There are four satellite tournaments scheduled for the $100,000 Delaware Poker Championship, with entries of $65 and starting stacks of 7,500 tournament chips with 12-minute levels. One out of every 10 participants will win a seat into Flight A. Players who play multiple satellites and win more than one seat may use the second seat for Flight B. Only the larger of the two chip stacks earned from Flights A & B will move on to the second day of the tournament. The satellite schedule for the $100,000 Delaware Poker Championship is:
Monday, Aug. 29; Tuesday, Aug. 30 and Wednesday, Aug. 31, 7:15 p.m.
