Baltimore’s first full-blown casino is still a month or two from opening, and a February visit from the World Series of Poker circuit is already in the works.

Horseshoe Casino Baltimore will be put on the gambling map when it hosts a World Series of Poker stop from February 26 to March 9. Tournament buy-ins will range from $365 to $1,675. It will be one of 21 stops on the 2014-2015 WSOP tour.

If you win the main event, you won’t get a replica gold bracelet, but you will get an automatic spot at the World Series of Poker National Championship in Las Vegas.

As the Washington Post notes, Maryland was previously brought into the  national poker spotlight when Poker Night in America filmed a tournament and two invitation-only cash games at Maryland Live Casino in March.

Not only that, but Greg Merson, the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event champion, is a long-time resident of Laurel, Md.
