Coming right off Borgata Poker’s Deepstacks Challenge - currently underway (July 7-20) – comes the $150,000 guaranteed PocketFives Poker Tournament July 27 to July 29 in the Borgata Poker Room.
PocketFives.com is an online poker forum and news site and one of the best poker info sites in the country. PocketFives is partnering with Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa to offer up a $350 + $50 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em Tournament with opening days July 27 and again July 28. The tournament carries a $150,000 prize pool guarantee.
“I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to present an event like this for our members,” said PocketFives co-founder Adam Small. “As the market leading casino property in Atlantic City, Borgata is the perfect place for us to host a live poker tournament. The PocketFives New Jersey community has been incredible since the launch of internet gaming and this event, along with the party, will be a great way to show our appreciation and give back to them.”
Poker? Slots? Or table games? At Borgata, it doesn’t matter what you play for the next two months. As long as you play online at BorgataPoker.com or BorgataCasino.com, you’ll be able to take part in our Sizzlin Summer Sweepstakes, a promotion that’s handing out $100,000 in cash and prizes through weekly giveaways and two big monthly draws.
On the line this week? $2,500 in cash. And each week, the cash prize pool gets bigger, jumping up to $3,000 in week 2 and all the way up to $10,000 in week 9.
You don’t have to play online to enter. Just log in to your Borgata account, click the Promotions tab, and opt in to the promo. That gets you 5 entries to the weekly draw and you can opt in for 5 more entries every 24 hours – without playing at all.
Summer is always hot in New Jersey. But at Borgata, it’s downright on fire. We’re thrilled to bring you Sizzlin Summer, a $100,000 sweepstakes promotion that’s designed to make your summer incredible – week after week after week.
Sizzlin Summer begins this week with a whopping $100,000 in cash and prizes on the line at BorgataPoker.com and BorgataCasino.com. Over the next two months, we’re drawing for thousands of dollars in cash every week, and we’re holding two monthly draws for prizes that most people only dream about.

We know that you don’t necessarily live your entire poker world online. Sure, our $10K nightly and $50K weekly tournaments are big draws, but so is the incredible land-based action at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City. This month, we’re excited to combine online thrills and live-action adrenaline rushes to bring you Deepstacks Challenge and the $150K PocketFives Open.
Deepstacks Challenge Satellites Now Running
How deep are you willing to go to pocket your share of $50,000? With the Deepstacks Challenge satellite series, you won’t need to reach deep into your pockets at all. From now until July 10th, we’re running satellites for seats in the Deepstacks Challenge $50,000 Guaranteed tournament, set to get underway at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa on July 12th. Each satellite takes place nightly at 8pm and guarantees to pay out at least one seat in the live tournament.
When Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa promises grinders a Bad Beat Jackpot Frenzy, we aren’t kidding around.
Take the action on Wednesday, July 2, when Borgata’s Small Bad Beat Jackpot hit twice—in five minutes. That’s right, better than $95,000 paid out in just five minutes.
The first hit came in the Borgata Poker Room at 3:30pm in a hand that really proves how Borgata’s Bad Beat Frenzy—which lowers the minimum hand to win the small jackpot—has changed the landscape.
Player Steven Belly was holding pocket 10’s while Jasper Chan was sitting on pocket jacks. Then came a flop of three aces, giving each a full boat.
Belly’s lesser boat wins the Small Bad Beat Jackpot and $20K and Chan Took home 10K. Eight other players at the table get $2,500 each.
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?
Well, 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.
You many have heard that the winner of Event 1 of the 2014 Borgata Summer Poker Open will take home just north of $100,000.
For the Borgata Poker Room, that kind of money is all in a day’s work … Or make that two days.
This past Wednesday and Thursday, the Borgata Poker Room saw two Borgata Bad Beat Jackpot hits that together came in at just south of $100,000.
The first hit came June 11 at 12:30pm as the Borgata Bad Beat Frenzy hit yet again for $50,000. The hit came on a 3/6 Hold’em table when Thelma Young’s Aces full of Jacks lost to Frank Ciulla’s four jacks.
The 2014 Borgata Summer Poker Open is cementing its status as the East Coast alternative to the World Series of Poker, as it once again sets new Borgata records for players.
Event 1 of the Summer Poker Open, a $350 buy-in Deep Stack No limit Hold’em tournament brought out 1,436 entries, breaking the 2013 Borgata Summer Poker Open record of 1,383 entries.
That created a total buy-in of $487,522, easily smoking the event’s $300,000 prize-pool guarantee.
Day 2 of the event—after three separate opening sessions—saw 275 players advance and compete for the first place cash of $101,401. The event pays off the top 140 finishers.
The Summer Open also saw its first online satellite winners playing at BorgataPoker.com in the live field. Online satellites are continuing for Borgata Summer Open events through the weekend.
