The Borgata Poker Room Does October Right

october-pokerSeptember may have belonged to the 2014 Borgata Poker Open, but there’s always something going on in the Borgata Poker Room and October is shaping up to be a monster month in its own right.

We got poker promotions. We got special tournaments. We got the Borgata Buffet (it’ll make sense in a minute).

In short, we’ve got the best poker action in Atlantic City this October.

The month starts with October Bonus Comp Dollars in effect for the entire month. October 1-31, play 60 hours in the poker room throughout the month and earn $50 in Bonus Comp Dollars. Play 90 hours and earn $75 of Bonus Comp Dollars.

Comp Dollars are good for food, drinks and entertainment. Check out the list of eligible games here.

This October also sees Borgata’s High Hand Challenge on Mondays and Thursdays all month long.

Here’s how it works:

The promotion will begin at noon and conclude at 10:00pm, or when a total of $2,000 has been awarded; whichever occurs first. Full house or better required for the initial High Hand. Initial and subsequent high hands that remain unbeaten for 60 minutes will receive $250. Initial and subsequent high hands that are beaten within 60 minutes will receive $50.

Darren Elias – 2014 Borgata Poker Open Champ

The 2014 Borgata Poker Open is in the books and once again Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa proved that it simply has the best poker room in Atlantic City and on the East Coast.

More than $6.6 million in prize money was awarded over 24 main events including the massive World Poker Tour Championship that drew more than 1,200 players. Darren Ellis of Cherry Hill won the event—which will be coming to a TV near you as part of the WPT’s TV schedule—and $843,744.

It was Elias’ biggest tournament cash since he took a fifth place at the 2011 BPO Championship and about $230,000. The win takes his career earnings over $2.5 million.

You can retrace Elias’ win at our tournament blog.
