POKER NIGHT IN AMERICA returns to Maryland Live!

12 June 2014

(PRESS RELEASE) -- By popular demand, the new television series POKER NIGHT IN AMERICA returns to Maryland Live! Casino to film another round of invitation-only cash game sessions set to air this fall on Comcast Sportsnet Mid Atlantic. Filming will take place over two days – July 28–29 – immediately following the Live! Summer Series of Poker, the next poker tournament series to be staged in The Poker Room.

“After the success of our last tournament, we’re thrilled to bring ‘Poker Night in America’ back to Maryland Live! Casino,” said Nolan Dalla, Creative Director, Poker Night in America. “The quality of our players, both professional and amateur, was outstanding. Three out of four players who participated in the high stakes cash games walked away as winners.”

The special, invitation-only cash games feature a mix of well-known poker pros and local players, including several notable names, such as local favorite Greg Merson, who won the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event. Merson was among an impressive roster of pros who participated during the previous filming in March. Buy-ins for these cash games range from $5,000 (minimum) to $20,000 (maximum). The public is welcome to view the filming in Rams Head Center Stage.

“Poker Night in America” and Maryland Live! Casino are once again offering poker enthusiasts an opportunity to play with the pros with an open casting call for players interested in attending this special event. Interested players are encouraged to send an email directly to Nolan Dalla via e-mail at Nolan@pokernight.com and explain why they should be chosen to compete. All players must be 21.

The televised poker tournament caps off an exciting month of Poker at Maryland Live!, which begins with the Live! Summer Series of Poker to be held July 7-28 in The Poker Room. The tournament series is comprised of 19 events over 21 days and features a prize pool of over $800,000, and a $2,200 Main Event with $250,000 Guaranteed Prize Money.
