Hey all, definitely been a while since I checked in on the blog. I’m going to try and get a lot more of these out there from now on … I’m hoping to find a nice mix of writing about some things poker strategy-related, some things BorgataPoker.com-related (there are so many cool promotions being run by them right now, and some amazing new additions to the live casino as well!), and some things related to life traveling as a poker player. For now, I thought it would be smart to start with a quick recap of my recent World Series of Poker experience…

Labor Day is upon us and that means we’re all gearing up for the fall season after another long, luxurious summer in Atlantic City at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. That’s assuming, of course, you managed to get away this summer and enjoy a little down time.
Autumn is the season when we all seem to reboot. It’s back to school, back to work, back to the daily grind. Sure, there’s some good stuff like football season, new TV shows, fall foliage … but it also means shorter days, leaves to rake, driving the kids to soccer practice and an ever-shrinking amount of time for holiday shopping.
You know, just thinking about it makes you want to plan another getaway … a fall escape … a fall escape to Borgata. We are, after all, the getaway specialists and we’ll let you in on a little secret – autumn is a beautiful time of year in Atlantic City and along the Jersey Shore.
No doubt that if you’ve been to Borgata, you’ve noted the extravagant glass sculptures that seem to drip effortlessly from the ceiling and rise majestically from the resort’s floor. Those colorful works of art are none other than world-famous Chihuly glass, created by master craftsman Dale Chihuly, and some of our guests come to our resort just to take in the signature pieces by the American artist.
August is one of those months where things can get a little backed up during the lazy days of late summer. But that’s not true when it comes to the action at Borgata’s online sites BorgataPoker.com and BorgataCasino.com, where the big online winners come week after week!
So this week we’re bringing you two weeks of big winners, including one amazing win on August 23 when Gines from Union New Jersey, made a $60 bet on the Raging Rhino slot game and won $67,380.00.
It was a big bet with a big return. That’s how you get the most out of the hot days of August.
Here are the big online winners for the last two full weeks of August…
Comedian Jim Gaffigan may seem like he’s everywhere these days. He stars in a series of pretty funny commercials for Chrysler, was one of the revolving Colonel Sanders in KFC’s ongoing ad campaign and just completed a run of the second season of “The Jim Gaffigan Show” on TV Land.
But despite all this TV, when Gaffigan rolled his Fully Dressed Tour into the Borgata Event Center Saturday for two shows, it was pretty evident what got Gaffigan to where he is – namely killer stand-up. Playing before two packed houses, Gaffigan unleashed a solid hour of wide ranging stand-up which covered everything from the changing seasons, the differences between ordering steak and fish (guess which one Gaffigan prefers) to travelling with his kids…
Take a look at Michael Gagliano’s top five poker tournament cashes and you’ll quickly realize that there’s something special about Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
The New Jersey online poker pro’s second biggest career cash came back in 2013 at the Borgata Spring Poker Open in Atlantic City, where Gagliano pocketed $169,029 for a 2nd place finish. And most recently, this past April, Gagliano finished 3rd in a $2,500+200 NLH Championship event for $128,768.
It gets more impressive. Between 2009 and 2016, Gagliano has found success in 13 major Borgata Poker Open events in Atlantic City. He’s finished 2nd in two Borgata Poker Open tournaments — one in 2013 and one in 2014. And he’s notched a 3rd and 4th place finish at the famous Atlantic City casino. Gagliano is as much a fixture of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa as the boardwalk is a fixture of Atlantic City…
When you play with us from August 26th to August 30th, you’ll have a chance to win a piece of $5,000 in cash and prizes. You could score as much as $1,000 cash, just for depositing and playing slots online at BorgataCasino.com.
We’re talking about the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, of course, where the names of stars of radio, film, TV and every other kind of entertainment medium you can think of are emblazoned on Hollywood Boulevard’s sidewalk.
One form of entertainment, however, – that of the Celebrity Chef – is pretty new to the Walk of Fame, so it gives us great delight to announce that Borgata Chef Wolfgang Puck has been named as a recipient of a star on the Walk of Fame for 2017…
