Colonial’s first Pokerfest tourney of the summer season is tonight – Friday, June 26th, and $1,000 in betting vouchers will be up for grabs.

The tourney is free, and will be held in conjunction with the horse races at the New Kent track. Registration begins at 5 PM, horse races start at 6 PM and poker begins after the 4th race, at 7:30 PM.

We can accommodate up to 400 players, so there will be plenty of room for everyone. We’ll be playing on the first floor level of the air conditioned grandstand, right near concession areas, bars, betting windows and the track itself. We will have a reduced price beverage special until 9 PM.

The top 100 finishers from Friday’s contest will advance to the final round on Friday July 24th, where $2,500 in vouchers will be up for grabs. The 2nd qualifier is Friday July 10th.
