The poker tournament will hold 17 events for 13 days in February.

The Potomac Winter Poker Open will be back at the MGM National Harbor in Maryland next month. The regional poker tournament will run from February 14 through February 26.

This year’s tournament will offer players a chance to win more than $2m in prizes at its 17 major events.

The Potomac Winter Poker Open will have several feature events that include a $750,000 guarantee Opener, a $3,500 High Roller and a $1m guarantee Main Event. Players can get in on the action at additional events that include 5-Card Pot-Limit Omaha High, Seniors 50+, a Cakes Classic Bounty and a Rookie’s Event.

MGM National Harbor offers guests views of the Potomac River’s eastern shore. The resort is located close to Washington DC and to George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate.

Its two-level casino is home to more than 160,000 square feet of gaming space with slots, table games and poker. Guests can stay in the 24-story, 308-room resort and have access to local restaurants and a spa, as well as to 50,000 square feet of meeting space.

MGM National Harbor is owned and operated by MGM Resorts International. The company recently expanded its partnership with KultureCity to open two sensory pods in its T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Donated by John C. Kish Foundation, the pods will be equipped with bubble walls, bean bags, activity panels and visual light panels.

The rooms were designed by medical professionals to offer a quieter and secure space for those who need a break from the action.
