Philly/Baltimore feel New England's (ppd.) pain ...


The greater Philly and Baltimore areas are experiencing today what New England has for about the last two months - Mother Nature's wrath. Thus, the cancellations and closings are rolling in.

* Delaware Park: closed Wednesday night at midnight. According to an automated message, there is no timetable for its re-opening;

* SugarHouse: cancelled its 11am, 3k guaranteed tourney, but added that it is expecting to run its new Friday 3k tourney as scheduled (this weekly event was just added to the schedule on Tuesday morning);

* Parx: cancelled its 7pm tournament;

* Harrah's Philly (Chester): still open, hasn't cancelled either tournament but the floor supervisor who answered didn't expect the 11:30 am tourney to happen;

* Horseshoe Baltimore: cancelled the WSOPC satellite this morning (was scheduled for 9am start), ad moved today's Senior event to Saturday (3/7) at 5pm.

* Maryland Live: no reported closings or cancellations yet, but the casino (obviously) urged its patrons to be careful on the roads.

* Perryville: no poker-related cancellations or postponements.


  1. Hi Scooter,

    Just felt like leaving a personal note of appreciation for your keeping up with the east coast scene. For someone like myself from New England I'm glad to hear the news.

  2. @Swager Thanks so much Swager, I appreciate the kind words. As a fellow New Englander, I understand all too well the frustrations of cancelled and postponed events during the winter. It's not all that fun, but we certainly adapt to the ever-changing conditions as well as any area in the nation.
