Pennsylvania Poker

Pennsylvania poker players recently launched a #GrowPAPoker campaign to urge the state to enter into a Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement (MSIGA). And while these players wait for shared liquidity, several major live events are taking place in which they can try their luck.

Philadelphia live! Poker Room is currently organizing the Live! Cup 3, a $600 buy-in event with six starting flights and a $1 million guarantee, while the Philadelphia Poker Championship takes place at Rivers Casino Philadelphia with a $2,200 buy-in Main Event with a guarantee of $200,000.
