May is shaping up to be a huge month for tournament events in the Borgata Poker Room. Or should we say a deep month, as in deep stacks?
All grinders like to see a big stack of chips in front of them, especially at the start of a tournament (and even more so at the end of a tournament).
Well, next week, starting Monday, May 12, your greatest deep-stack dreams will be answered as Borgata presents a six-day, Deep Stacks Challenge. That’s six days of deep stacks (25,000 in tournament chips), deeper stacks (35,000 in chips) and deepest stacks (40,000 in chips).
Here’s the schedule:
May 12 – $125 + $25 Deep Stack NLH RE
May 13 – $150 + $30 Deep Stack NLH RE
May 14 – $170 + $30 Deeper Stack NLH RE
May 15 – $200 + $30 Deeper Stack NLH RE
May 16 – $260 + $40 Deepest Stack NLH RE
May 17 – $350 + $50 Deepest Stack NLH RE
Meanwhile, this weekend also marks the return of Borgata’s popular Saturday Series on May 10, a $100,000 guaranteed $350 + $50 NLH RE tournament that is a mainstay on the Borgata schedule. Play starts at 11am with on-site registration starting Friday, May 9 from 6pm to midnight and reopening at 8am Saturday.
The Saturday Series events are held in months without a Borgata Poker Open and have become one of the most popular events in the Borgata Poker Room. Our last Saturday Series event in March attracted 442 entries and a $150,000 total buy-in.
In upcoming weeks, Borgata also offers these tournament events:
May 17: Omaha Stud Tournament – $350 + $50
May 24: $10,000 Super Survivor Tournament – $1,000 + $80
June 10 to 27: Borgata Summer Poker Open ($500,000 guaranteed championship June 21-25).
