If you think our weekly $50K Guarantee is big, wait until you see what’s happening at Borgata in Atlantic City on September 20th. That’s Day 1A of the televised $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship. It’s the big one in the Borgata Poker Open and lots of online poker players have already secured a spot in it.
The buy-in for the tournament is $3,500, and BorgataPoker.com is guaranteeing a minimum of one seat for each of the five remaining online satellites.
On the first weekend of online satellites, two players secured seats into the Championship. With five more chances this weekend to steamroll a $405 entry in an online Super Satellite into a coveted seat in the live tournament, there should be a lot of online action.
This weekend, you’ll find Super Satellites on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 5:45pm, with each one guaranteeing at least one seat for every 10 players in the tournament. Can’t make it for 5:45? There’s another Super Satellite at 7:30pm on Saturday and Sunday with the same 1 in 10 shot at moving on.
For all the important info, check out the Borgata Poker Open page.

We welcome Asher Conniff as a guest blogger to Borgata Poker Blog! Asher made Borgata history by winning Borgata Spring Poker Open Kickoff event and Borgata WPT World Championship, both of which he qualified for on BorgatPoker.com online satellite events.
Coming into Sunday, I had already had one of the best weeks of my life. Ten days before, I had turned a $60 satellite on BorgataPoker.com into a $560 seat in the Borgata Spring Poker Open $1 million guaranteed kick-off event, a seat which I then turned into the first place prize of $203,231. After years of grinding poker tournaments full-time, both live and online, it was wildly fulfilling to see the fruits of my labor. Needless to say, between the large sum of money I won and the sweet, sweet vindication of beating my good buddy Matt Stout heads up, I was pretty damn happy!!
Back to “that” Sunday. I was at my next-door neighbor’s apartment in Brigantine, NJ, a stones throw away from Borgata. As we often did, a group of 6 or so of us had gotten together that day to hang out while we all played online poker tournaments. Our ritual: we order food, watch sports and talk through hands on our breaks. Armed with a freshly renewed bankroll and sense of confidence, my levels of relaxation were extremely high, and how could they not be!? I also was overjoyed to be heading to Europe the next week with my mother and sister, a vacation that was to span over 2 weeks and had been planned over 6 months prior. Having never been to Europe, I was super excited, and this was obviously the ideal time to be going on vacation. I even skipped the $3500 buy-in Borgata Spring Poker Open Championship event in anticipation of this trip, knowing that if I was to win/nearly win the tournament I would miss my flight!
This is it. This is the land-based tournament series you’ve been waiting for. Millions of dollars are on the table in the upcoming Borgata Poker Open, set to get underway this September in Atlantic City. The journey to securing your seats in several events begins online at BorgataPoker.com.
The Borgata Poker Open 2015 is a 22-event live series that begins with a $2 million guaranteed Texas Hold’em tourney. Hallmark events include the Almighty Million and the much-anticipated televised WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship where $3 million is guaranteed.
It all kicks off at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa this September and we’ve got loads of online poker satellites on our schedule to help you secure seats for a fraction of the buy-ins.
Satellites to several events are available only at BorgataPoker.com beginning Saturday, August 29th for just $45. Starting Monday, August 24th, you can also win your way through qualifiers for a small $5 buy-in.
For the televised WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship event, you’ll find qualifiers for $45 that lead to Super Satellites, where ~ 1 in 10 players wins a $3,500 seat in the land-based Championship tourney.
There are tons of events worth playing in, so check it all out on our Borgata Poker Open promotion page.
We can’t wait to see you online – and in Atlantic City.
August is one of the months we live for here in Atlantic City and the Jersey Shore. Hot days and nights, everyone seems to be on vacation—even if they’re not—and a lot of action here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
This event features a $150 + $30 Big Stack (20,000 is starting chips) with seven opening flights. That’s right, seven opening flights going up to Day 1G on August 14.
Just keep in mind that the tournament is not a best stack forward event, so if you bag chips in one opening flight, you’ll forfeit them if you play in another flight. But if you bust, you have the opportunity to enter in multiple times throughout the week to make it the final day, August 15.
Here’s the structure for the tournament.
Other August tournament highlights include:
August 9 & 30
Borgata Poker Room at 12pm
Additional Tournaments to the Sunday Schedule
The Borgata Summer Poker Open is over—Congrats to the winners—and our daily tournament schedule resumes in the Borgata Poker Room. But as Borgata grinders know, cash play never stops in the Borgata Poker Room and a new month simply means we launch, or re-launch, our poker promotions for August.
Like say our $10,000 Ultimate High Hand every Friday. Win $500 if you have the highest hand that goes unbeaten for 30 minutes.
A total of $10,000 will be awarded starting at Noon each day. Full house or better qualifies for the initial High Hand.
So pretty cool, except again in August we’re offering the $15,000 Royal Flush Bonus. Every day in August—yes, every day—get paid for your Royal Flush. Hit a Royal on the flop and win $1,000. A Royal on the turn is worth $500, and for a Royal on the river, you’ll receive $250.
Up to $15,000 will be awarded throughout the month.
And, of course, August Bonus Comp Dollars are in play this month on all games with the following limits:
Players earned Tournament Leaderboard Points for participating in qualifying BorgataPoker.com online tournaments during the month of July; and earned Tournament Leaderboard Bonus Points based on cash placed finished, buy-in amount and total number of tournament entries. Congratulations! The top 30 place finishers won monthly leaderboard prizes, and the top 500 place finishers for the July…
