Garden State Super Series IV is now underway and it’s proving to pay off massively for poker players in New Jersey. All five tournaments on Sunday’s opening day schedule featured more prize pools exceeding all guarantees.
Here’s a look at what happened in last night’s five big tournaments:
- GSSS #1 featured a final prize pool of $14,100, eclipsing the $7,500 that had been guaranteed. The NLH Slow Grind saw PunisherPete claim the first place prize of $2,820.
- GSSS #2, our biggest tournament of the night with $75,000 guaranteed, paid out an impressive $94,400. A four-way final table deal distributed $43,829 among ninjaG0 ($11K), ABH70 ($11K), floppynuts ($11K) and jakep474 ($10,829).
If the name ninjaG0 sounds familiar, it’s because he’s found significant success in a number of BorgataPoker.com tournaments, including several Sunday $50k Guaranteed tournaments and Daily $10K Guaranteed events. His total earnings prior to last night’s big win approached $18,000.
- GSSS #3 saw a final prize pool of $32,500, well above the $20,000 that was promised. A final table deal saw Big_Daddy and treetrap split $10,643 almost down the middle.
- GSSS #4, a $7,500 guarantee, got fairly close to doubling its guaranteed prize pool, paying out $13,750. Deezer took first place, adding $2,675 to his bankroll.
- GSSS #5 paid out $16,000—that’s $6,000 above the $10,000 that was guaranteed. Congrats to jmzit2u on his first place finish.
The Garden State Super Series IV runs through March 13th with several tournaments on the schedule each day. Head to the GSSS IV tournament page for all the info and discover which events you’ll conquer next. Remember, there is over $1 million in guaranteed prize pools for GSSS IV events!
For most of us, sugar is just something we keep in a bowl on the kitchen table. The extent of our creativity with it usually involves simply putting it on corn flakes or in our coffee.
For cooks and bakers, however, sugar is an ingredient and behind every decadent dessert and sweet treat there is. But it’s still pretty basic. Make dessert, add sugar.
Then there are master chefs, like Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Executive Pastry Chef Thaddeus DuBois. For him, sugar isn’t something you keep in a bowl or sprinkle on cereal. Well, maybe it is if he’s having a quick breakfast, but for DuBois, sugar is also a medium, a material that can make exquisite art and a substance of profound beauty.
What we’re talking about are sugar works or sugar sculpture. It’s the art of spinning sugar into exquisitely intricate and delicate creations. The techniques have been featured on about a gazillion cable TV food shows, yet for most of us they are still as mysterious as Kanye West’s Twitter feed.
On Saturday March 19, however, Dubois and the Savor Borgata Series present “Spring Sugar & Easter Sweets“ at 1pm in Studio 1 at the Event Center.

On February 28, all eyes will turn to the Academy Awards presentations in Los Angeles as the whole country goes on a “beautiful people” watching spree.
And as everyone knows, the most fun comes before the awards are even handed out. We’re talking, of course about the red carpet, where we can all say things like, “Gee, not sure Jennifer Lawrence should have gone with the taffeta,” and “Leo’s tux just looks soooo much nicer than Bryan Cranston’s (yeah, it’s the tux).”
Ah yes, the beautiful people. Now most people around the country will be watching this glamour extravaganza in plaid pajama bottoms while eating a pint of ice cream. But here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, we think the red carpet should be even more of a big deal. And most of all, we think you should be on a red carpet as well.
That’s why the Savor Borgata Culinary Series will present A Night on the Red Carpet at Wolfgang Puck American Grille starting at 6:30pm February 28, otherwise known as Oscar night.
Think about it. You get to watch the red carpet while taking in all the elegance of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa at one of our premier dining establishments, Wolfgang Puck American Grille.
By the way, guess who’s providing the food for the post Oscars Governors Ball? Just a chef named Wolfgang Puck. Which means you’ll be able to sample the same food the big shots will get after the awards—before the awards.
If you liked variety, you clearly weren’t disappointed at this past Saturday’s raucous evening of drag at Borgata’s Music Box featuring the talents of Sherry Vine, Katya, Pandora Boxx, and Ginger Minj. The queens presented what can best be described as a naughty variety show for Atlantic City audiences, featuring everything from a partying Elsa from Frozen to a stripping Adele.
Practice your mad bluffing skills because the one you’ve been waiting for is almost here. We’re just under one week away from the next installment of New Jersey’s biggest online poker tournament series.
Garden State Super Series IV gets underway on February 28th at BorgataPoker.com and jam-packs over $1 million in guaranteed prize pool money into two weeks of serious poker action.
The series kicks off in bold fashion with a massive $75,000 NLH tournament on Day 1. The following Sunday, there’s a $100K guarantee. And on the final Sunday of the series, you can look forward to the $150K Guaranteed Main Event.
Sandwiched in between those hallmark events are tournaments with hundreds of thousands in prize money. Throughout the schedule you’ll find all your favorites —No Limit Hold’em, PLO8, Fixed Limit Hold’em, High Rollers, Slow Grinds, Turbos, and more.
While the series doesn’t kick off until February 28th, satellites for many of the big tournaments are already live. You can check out the full tournament schedule on our promotions page, or open the BorgataPoker.com software to find a qualifier for your favorite events.
