Deep Stack Challenge December 26-30 in the Borgata Poker Room

There are three basic approaches people take towards the day after Christmas.

For some it’s a day to lounge around, play with your new gifts and eat leftover Christmas ham. For others, it’s a day to just continue the holiday and visit some more family and binge on more egg nog and cookies.

And for others—namely poker players—it’s a day to find a little action.

The Borgata Poker Room wants to help that third group—the poker players—by holding a five-tournament Deep Stack’s Challenge event from December 26 – 30.

That’s five 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.
