Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races in West Virginia welcomes the Hollywood Poker Open (March 21-April 1), which will have 15 events. The series launches March 21 with the $50K guarantee $350 no-limit hold’em double-stack event. Many guarantee events should lead to a lot of action, and the $1,620 main event starts March 29 and runs until April 1.

DOVER DOWNS: Beginning March 6, each month you’ll have a chance to win an Ante Up Poker Cruise package for two, a personalized Ante Up league champion’s jacket and bragging rights. Every Wednesday at 7 p.m. the Ante Up Poker League takes place and has a $1K guarantee with a $75 buy-in. The league champion wins a Caribbean cruise and can play in the Ante Up Poker Room aboard the ship.

Dover Downs also is giving away a new car. On March 10, the winner of the 1 p.m. tournament ($199) will receive a Toyota Camry valued at more than $16K. There also will be more than $40,000 in cash and prizes. Top 20 will be paid.

The Crown Royal Poker Room also had its bad beat hit on Feb. 2 when quad aces beat quad kings. Dover Downs has paid more than $857K in bad-beat jackpots since opening in 2010.

DELAWARE PARK: From March 13-20, Delaware Park Poker Room will host a series of deepstack events, including NLHE, six-max, bracket challenge (shootout) and a few others. See the ad on the back inside cover of our March issue.

Also, congratulations to Travis Williams, pictured, for winning the Winter Classic main event, beating 212 players for the $49,581 prize. All of the winners are below.

MARYLAND LEGISLATURE: Maryland Del. Kirill Reznik introduced legislation that would allow Marylanders to play and host home poker games. House Bill 486 was referred to the Ways and Means Committee, where a hearing is scheduled for March 5.
