August Tournaments in the Borgata Poker Room

August is fast approaching and the Borgata Poker Room, along with BorgataPoker.com, has put together one of the best months of tournament play in a non-Borgata Open month.

By non-Borgata Open month, we mean a month that doesn’t include one of Borgata’s five seasonal open events such as the Borgata Poker Open scheduled for September 2-19.

Grinders getting ready for that event will have plenty of chances to sharpen their tournament skills in August.

First up are a series of summer tournaments on Sundays, which we’ve cleverly dubbed Sundays in August. A mix of four different tournaments will be offered at noon each Sunday during the month.

Poker TableHere’s the schedule:

H.O.R.S.E. – Sun. 8/3 – 12PM – $200 + $30 buy-in

NLH/PLO HIGH ONLY (RE-ENTRY) – Sun. 8/10 – 12PM – $200 + $30 buy-in

OE 8B – Sun. 8/24 – 12PM – $200 + $30 buy-in

PLO HIGH ONLY (RE-ENTRY) – Sun.  8/31 – 12PM – $200 + $30 buy-in.

Next up is Borgata’s $200,000 guaranteed Summer Heater Tournament Series from August 11-16. This $150 + $30 tournament carries seven different opening sessions.

Yes, seven opening sessions. Though the tournament is not a best stack forward tournament, players can re-enter each opening day and through level eight of each opening session if they bust out.

Players start with 20K in chips. Here’s the full schedule.

Also, check back with BorgataPoker.com for an announcement on online satellites for this event.

On August 17, Borgata and Cabot Creamery Cooperative present the annual Put a Bad Beat on Hunger Tournament to benefit the Community Food Bank of New Jersey.

This year, the $250 + $30 + $20 tournament (the extra $20 benefits the food bank) will award a $3,500 entry into the $3 million guaranteed Borgata Open Championship event September 14 – 20 to the tournament winner.

Again, check back with BorgataPoker.com for an announcement on online satellites for this event.

The Borgata Poker Room will offer another shot at a Borgata Open Championship seat with a $10,000 Borgata Poker Open Super Satellite on August 23.

The $1,000 + $80 tournament will award one in 10 players with a $10,000 prize package (for example, if 100 players buy-in, 10 prize packages will be awarded to the top finishers).

The prize package includes:

$3,500 Entry into WPT World Championship ($3 Million Guaranteed)

$560 Entry into Borgata Poker Open Opening Event ($2 Million Guaranteed)

$5,940 Cash

And you thought we took things slow here at the shore in August. Not at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
