MGM National Harbor is giving poker players from across the country a major reason to visit the nation’s capital in August.

The world-class casino will hold the 2018 Potomac Poker Open from Aug. 3-13. The series will feature 11 tournaments, including the $2,700 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Championship that guarantees a prize pool of $500,000. In 2017, David Israelite won the series’ flagship tournament for $175,000.
