Twice the Guarantee in our Sunday Major

borgatapoker-203x185It’s holiday time and this Sunday we’re giving you the gift of bigger prize pools.

On Sunday, December 20th, we’re pumping up our $50K Sunday Major with $50K more. Come play for a piece of $100,000 in our No Limit Hold’em tournament at 5pm. The online poker tourney features one re-entry, so if you bust out you can jump back in with a fresh chip stack.

While the guarantee has changed, the buy-in hasn’t. You can still get in for $200+15 or through a low buy-in satellite, just like every Sunday.

If you need to boost your bankroll for the Sunday $100k, you can take advantage of a 100% bonus up to $300. Use bonus code RELOAD1215 by December 19th to earn the bonus.

2015 WSOP Final Table: Way to Represent, East Coast!

Matt StoutBack in the *old* days during the poker boom there was a silly debate that raged in poker circles and circled around one question: Who’s better at poker, the east coast or the west coast? (Apparently the South and Midwest were automatically disqualified from contention.)

Even though I bought a house in Las Vegas in 2010, I’ve always been repping the east coast in this argument. I grew up in Bayonne, New Jersey and had been into card and board games including poker and chess my entire life. When I was 19 I became deeply engrossed (read: addicted) to poker during the 2003-2004 poker boom especially since I had just given up playing college hockey at that point and was in dire need of a competitive outlet to replace it.

I spent two years — much of which should have been spent studying my majors of business and psychology at The College of New Jersey — cutting my teeth in every game I could find around campus, and when that wasn’t enough I turned to online poker. After dumping a lot of money on $5-10 tournaments and spending a semester eating Easy Mac and ramen noodles, I decided to dedicate myself to improving my game because I’m a fan of meat and other foods that weren’t cheap, and being a broke college student who was losing money at online poker was pretty far from sustainable as far as business models go.

Within three months of turning 21 and becoming a fixture in Atlantic City tournaments, I had managed to scrape together just enough a bankroll to play the WSOP Circuit when it came to town. I busted the first $340 event but then won a $75 sit-and-go into the 2nd event, a $560 NL. That tournament changed my life forever, because I ended up chopping at the final table with Matt Glantz for $34K. I went on to win two seats to the $10K main event later that week in the only two $200+rebuys I played, sold one seat to Nicky Frangos, and played my first $10K. That’s when I was able to quiet the 20% of my brain that kept telling me I was out of my mind for wanting to try to make a living playing poker and I knew that I was going to pursue this dream that I still haven’t woken up from after 9 years.
