Borgata Deep Stacks Challenge July 7-20

Borgata poker players have been left with an interesting choice since BorgataPoker.com went live last November.

Do I get dressed, hit the Borgata Poker Room and stare down the guys I’m going to be winning from? Or, do I just relax at home, order in some pizza and play online all night and stare down some avatars?

Deep Stacks ChallengeWell, here’s a chance at the best of both Borgata poker worlds. Introducing the Borgata Poker Deep Stacks Challenge, which combines live play in the Borgata Poker Room with online play at BorgataPoker.com.

Borgata is also bringing back the Leaderboard Promotion, new and improved. Players have a shot at a free $3,500 value seat to the Borgata Poker Open Championship in September to the leaderboard winner. The series includes 14 different tournaments from July 7 to July 20.

The first six tournaments (July 7 to July 12) will be live tournaments in the Borgata Poker Room. The remaining eight tournaments (July 13 to July 20) will be found online at BorgataPoker.com.

You want to score points by entering as many tournaments as you want, both in the live tournaments and online. Leaderboard positions are based on the number of events you enter, the event prize pool, and where you place. Here’s a look at the points formula for the leaderboard.

As Deep Stack events, the tournaments carry different chip counts to start. That includes deep (25,000 chips), deeper (35,000 chips) and deepest (40,000) chips. Event buy-ins range from $350 to $150 for the live events and $185 to $45 for online events. Here’s the full schedule and structures.

At stake are some amazing prizes including the seat to the Borgata Poker Open Championship and other Borgata Poker Open events as well as Borgata Gift Cards.

Here’s the prize list:

1ST         $3,500 SEAT INTO BORGATA POKER OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP

2ND        $560 SEAT INTO BORGATA POKER OPEN EVENT 1

3RD        $400 SEAT INTO POCKET FIVES TOURNAMENT

So it’s pretty easy. Get out of the house, play some live opponents and enjoy a few days in the Borgata Poker Room. Then, crash at home for a week, play in your pajamas and rack up some more points.

In the end, you could be playing with the best poker pros in the world in Atlantic City this September at the Borgata Poker Open Championship, a World Poker Tour event.

Like we said. It’s the best of both worlds.
