Hollywood Casino at Charles Town

Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races Poker Room Review

The Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races poker room, as with our recent visit to the Mount Airy poker room, was part of a larger venture to an out-of-the-way location.  We recently shared our trek through West Maryland including this short venture into West Virginia.  If you’re headed out to the Holywood Casino at Charles Town Races, you’ll likely want to plan some other activities along the way.

MGM National Harbor Outside

MGM National Harbor Poker Room Review

MGM National Harbor is one of two major poker rooms in the Baltimore-Washington area. While Maryland Live! sits beside BWI airport just minutes from Baltimore, MGM is on the Maryland-Virginia line, close to Washington, DC. The newest room in the Mid-Atlantic, MGM hasn’t lost that new casino shine and comes with all of the required amenities. There are upscale restaurants, a resort hotel, and a massive shopping mall just steps away.

MGM National Harbor is just off I-95 in Oxon Hill, Maryland. The immediate response we had when walking through the door was “Wow. Fancy!” The design of this casino is slick, fresh, and extremely clean. It feels very tech-forward and new. Both on the outside and the inside, MGM National Harbor is just a beautiful casino

Maryland Live!

Maryland Live! Poker Room Review

After playing the small, in-the-middle of-nowhere, scantly attended Mount Airy poker room the Maryland Live! poker room was bound to provide a substantial contrast. Long touted as one of the elite poker rooms on the East Coast, Maryland Live! does not disappoint. We had not been back since a short visit to play cash years ago before we started this website. We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit and are very excited about a return to play a Tag Team Switch tournament later this month. Long time readers will know how much we love a Tag Team Switch!

Maryland Live! is just off Route 100 in Glenn Burnie Maryland. It sports a massive adjacent Mall (Arundel Mills) and is a mere five minutes from BWI airport. It’s 15 minutes from Baltimore and about 40 from Washington DC. So if you have any business in the Baltimore-Washington Region, a visit to Maryland Live! will be shockingly convenient.

Mount Airy Poker Room

Mount Airy Poker Room Review

The Mount Airy poker room is likely not on many poker players’ radar. It’s not near a major city – unless you’re a big fan of The Office, and an admirer of Scranton PA. Mount Airy is a modest size room, with only 12 tables and does not currently offer tournaments. However, since we were in the area visiting a friend, we decided to drop by. We have previously visited the nearby Mohegan Sun Pocono, which has some similarities to Mount Airy.

Dover Poker Room

Dover Poker Room Review

The Dover Poker Room is one of the newest poker rooms on the New Hampshire poker scene. Despite being less than three years old, it has already gone through a substantial renovation. Dover is run by the same management group as several other prominent New Hampshire rooms (Filotimo (Manchester), Wonder Casino, and Lebanon). Clearly, the hope here was to bring back a well-rounded poker room close to the New Hampshire seacoast. We were eager to see if Dover would be a satisfactory tournament replacement to the now-defunct Hampton Falls and the cash-only Brook.
