Borgata Poker Player’s Series Tournaments in March

Borgata Poker Player's SeriesEven as the Borgata Deep Stacks Challenge is under way, Borgata Poker is already planning its next big event for March.

Introducing the Borgata Poker Player’s Series. It’s a three-tournament set of events designed to give poker players what they most want—plenty of long-term table action.

OK, maybe what players most want is to win it all, but after that it’s the long-term table action. The Borgata Poker Player’s Series features structures designed to give players the best experience: longer levels and bigger starting stacks.

The three tournaments start March 13, 20 and 27 respectively with buy-ins starting at $500 to $1,500. Each is a multiple day tournament with two starting days.

Here’s the schedule:

PLAYER’S SERIES 500 NLH DOUBLE PLAY $500 + $60

DAY 1A – FRI, 3/13 11am

DAY 1B – SAT, 3/14 11am

DAY 2 – SUN, 3/15 12pm

Borgata’s February Poker Promotions

feb-poker-eventsJanuary may have been the month for Borgata’s Winter Poker Open in the Borgata Poker Room, but just because one really big poker event is over, that hardly means Borgata’s poker play is calming down.

Like Deepstack Tournaments? Then we’ve got the event for you.

The Borgata Deepstacks Challenge returns February 15 to February 21. That’s a daily guaranteed Deepstack Tournament with prize pool guarantees of $10,000 to $50,000 for a total of $185,000 in guarantees. It’s seven tournaments where players start with either 25K (deep stack), 35K (deeper stack) or 40K (deepest stack) in starting chips. The winner of each tournament also gets a Borgata trophy.

WPO: A “Regular” That We’re Certainly Missing

deep stack summeropen2014Original Post by Will OC on the Winter Poker Open blog: http://winterpokeropen.blog.theborgata.com/2015/01/16/wpo-a-regular-that-were-certainly-missing/

Borgata “regulars” are the lifeblood of the Borgata Poker Room; the players that play in every series, grind the cash game tables daily and are constantly following the action, even when they’re not playing.

We’ve seen plenty of them throughout the first few days of the WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open, but one player we have yet to see and won’t throughout the rest of the series, is Pasquale Boffice of Manahawkin, NJ.

The 82-year-old former restaurateur, who owned and operated two family establishments in Toms River and Manahawkin/LBI, has been ill over the last few months and earlier this week, while most players on the East Coast were preparing for their trip to the Borgata, he was getting ready to go into surgery.

Thankfully, it was a successful procedure, but he’ll need to remain in the hospital for a few more days and then go through an extensive rehab regimen before he can get back to full health and the place he loves, the Borgata Poker Room.

Pasquale’s biggest tournament score at the Borgata came three years ago in this exact series, when he finished as the runner up in the WPO Senior’s Event, making just under $10,000.

His most recent “big” score came during the 2013 Fall Poker Open Championship event, as Pasquale battled through a field of close to 650 of the best players this region has to offer, to post a top 30 finish, making close to $8,000 for his deep championship run.
