cap Gazeue BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE mIDAY, JUNE19- MONDAY, JUNE 22, 2009 SS Poker at the Beach benefits local charities By Tom Walsh tomwalsh@capegazette.com Poker enthusiasts in the Cape Region may be excited to hear that a brand-new, deluxe card room, offering hours of action- packedio-limit Texas Hold 'em play, is now officially open to the public. Operated four days a week by a company called Charitable Games of Delaware, the first- class venue is already drawing quite a crowd. Attracted by the urge to be dealt a winning hand and reel in the big bucks, players from all over the county have assembled in the Rehoboth Beach location, hoping lady luck is on their side. Modeled on popular card rooms found in gambling hotspots like Las Vegas, Nev., and Atlantic City, N.J., Charitable Games' three owners say Poker at the Beach has the real deal look and feel. With six full-sized red felt poker tables, custom Poker at the Beach clay gambling chips and weekly tutorial ses- sions, players can take in the au- thentic poker experience, the owners say. "We have done everything to make sure people who come here are comfortable, safe and able to enjoy them- selves while they play," said co- owner AJ Hemphill. "We know that a lot of people have wanted to have a place to play cash games for a long time, and until now, there wasn't anything close to our area.,' Hemphill explained that while the idea of a card room has been used in New Castle County in the past and may soon be offered at local casinos, playing at Poker at the Beach is a completely unique experience. With five 50-inch plasma screen televisions, a full-service beverage and snack station, and comfortable lounging space in- side, the first-class environment is second to none, he said. Most important to the owners is that the card room that serves as a way to give back to the com- munity. Sponsored every evening by a new charitable or- ganization, the poker room rais- es money by collecting $4 from players every half hour. At end of the night, that money is donat- ed to the special cause, along with any additional funds raised by the company. Local artist Abraxas has joined in to support Charitable Games by displaying various art pieces at the location. Any art pur- chased by players or visitors to Poker at the Beach will result in 25 percent of the purchase being donated to the night's charity. "I think that the best part of [Poker at the Beach] is definitely the charitable aspect," said co- owner Chip Thompson. "When we first heard that Delaware law allows for a card room, provided you are giving back to nonprofit organizations, we knew the idea was for us." Organizations have been lin- ing up to host the events, said Thompson, so clearly the card room has been wel -received. This month's sponsors include the Leukemia & Lymphoma So- ciety, the Vietnam Veterans As- sociation and the Children's Beach House in Lewes. All char- ities are from Sussex County, he said, so money raised can go to immediate use in the Cape Re- gion. It is also important to note, said co-owner Clint Bunting, that Poker at the Beach encour- ages reasonable play. With a $150 a day maximum buy-in lim- it, players don't have to worry about the possibility of losing large sums of money. They can instead focus on having fun, he said. The card room is open from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m., Wednesday through Saturday, and state law requires players to be at least 18 years of age. Currently, games offered at Poker at the Beach in- clude $1 and $2 no-limit hold 'em but may soon be expanded to of- fer games such as limit poker, Omaha and seven card stud. The business is located at 19324 Lighthouse Plaza Blvd. For details, visit charitablegame- sofdelaware.com. TOM WALSH PHOTO CHARITABLE GAMES OF DELAWARE has opened Poker at the Beach.
