More competition for Atlantic City card rooms

Delaware Park is getting table games ready for this summer. The casino executives hope to get moving and have hired Susan Ciboldi as Director of Tables Games.

In the press release announcing the appointment, COO Andrew Gentile said: "Initially, we expect to feature approximately 40 table games and a 20-table poker room."

He said other things in the release, but this was the only part I focused on. With Philadelphia and Delaware competing for poker players, Atlantic City will have stiff competition. The summertime won't be terrible because I still feel this is an area people will want to enjoy during the peak months.

But what will happen to rooms like the Showboat and Bally's on a Monday in February?

ATLARGE coming back to Atlantic City

ATLARGE originated between friends and Internet users who met on the newsgroup since 1996. The first event was held at Resorts.
