Poker and Delaware Park go hand in hand with regards to offering the poker player everything they will ever need, whether they are someone who looks on poker as a recreational hobby or someone who is classed as a pro.

All it takes is a quick look at the monthly poker tournament schedules and you will see that you could literally be playing in tourneys every day throughout the month should you have the time and the inclination.

The poker room is open every day of the year except for a break at Christmas and Easter and when they say open every day, they also mean it is open for 24 hours each day, quite impressive you will surely agree and one of the many reasons why Delaware Poker commonly regarded as one of the best poker venues in the country.

In fact, on March 25th, 2013, Delaware Poker was officially included in the world famous Guinness Book Of Records as being the venue that hosted the Longest Continuous Poker Tournament which lasted for over 36 hours, this marvellous feat of endurance by all of the players involved well and truly cemented Delaware poker in the legendary poker hall of fame.

If you are someone who has not really had the pleasure of taking part in a poker tournament or perhaps don’t haven’t really played poker before then please don’t worry because Delaware Poker have that angle covered as well.

They have on their website a number of cutting edge training videos which are not only free to view but highly informative and guaranteed to teach you everything that you need to know about this wonderful game.
