At this point, the Borgata Poker Open, scheduled for September 2 – 19, doesn’t need all that much of a publicity push.
If you play live poker, you know what the Borgata Poker Open is. It’s simply the biggest poker event on the East Coast, a record setter for the World Poker Tour and one of the most anticipated two and half weeks of poker anywhere.
For grinders, it’s really all about scheduling the tournaments you want to play.
Online registration is open for all main events, so let’s look at that schedule.
The Open begins September 2 with Event 1, a $2 million guaranteed, $500 + $60 opening event that includes five opening sessions split between September 2 – 4. The first event of the Borgata Poker Open is always the most well attended and the Borgata Poker Room has been adding opening sessions to accommodate the huge field for the last few years.
The opening event in 2013 brought out a record 3,871 entries, so you see what we mean.
Of course, the big event of the tournament is the $3 million guaranteed World Poker Tour Borgata Open Championship from September 14 – 19. The $3,300 + $200 event has two opening days, September 14 and 15 respectively. The Borgata Open Championship has historically hosted the biggest fields ever on the World Poker Tour.
In all, the Borgata Poker Open will offer 24 main events and 26 secondary evening tournaments and satellites. Along with the guarantees on the opening event and championship, eight other events carry more than $1.5 million in guarantees combined.
Of particular note is Event 10, a $1 million guaranteed Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em tournament from September 8 – 12. This $350 + $50 tournament also begins with five opening sessions from September 8 – 10.
As always, Borgata will offer a special drawing for a seat at the $3,500 buy-in Championship Event. The contest opens August 11 and runs to September 10. Click here to enter.
