The SugarHouse Casino is preparing to open their resplendent new poker room and it will be christened the Poker Night in America Poker Room.
The SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia is on the verge of cracking open a bottle of champagne on the side of their brand spanking new poker room, and when they do it will be christened the Poker Night in America Poker Room.
The room launches March 23, meaning as you read this, cards will be flying across the 6,000 square foot poker room with smiles on their faces. The new gaff contains 28 tables and all 252 seats contain built in phone chargers for people who have the attention span of a gnat.
The grand opening comes with some local pomp and circumstance. Former coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, Dick Vermeil, and his former wide receiver, Vince Papale, will be on hand with their selfie sticks to meet and greet the players.
Rush Street Gaming’s Matt Glantz will also be on hand. He has been a busy boy. He was hired as poker room advisor and talent tracker-downer and he has done an excellent job.
To celebrate the opening of the new card room Glantz has organised the inaugural “SugarHouse Poker Night Classic.” The 20-day event will run March 23 – April 11, will feature 35 tournaments, and the PNIA production team will be on hand to film the Main Event final table on April 11. All structures have been designed by Glantz.
There will also be a spicy cash game taking place April 9-10. The main atttraction will be the 2015 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event champion, Joe McKeehen, a Philadelphia sweetheart who has been on one hell of a roll since winning his nest egg last summer. McKeehen will be joined by Todd Brunson, Shaun Deeb and that man Glantz. The action will also be filmed an aired on the CBS Sports Network.
Here is the full schedule.
If you are a dealer, live in Philly, and are out of a job then look them up. It looks like they might need you.
