Every Sunday, BorgataPoker.com presents the Sunday $50K Guaranteed poker tournament in conjunction with our partners at PartyPoker. And with Borgata’s online casinos now two years old, the word has really gotten out about the Sunday $50K.
For the week of November 9 through 15, we awarded another better than $10K win for the tournament to PocketProfits (a very cool screen name) for $11,712. He (or she) outlasted a field of 313 entries and took the top share of a $62,600 prize pool. 45 players cashed in the tournament. And don’t forget, Sunday November 29 we’re doubling the guarantee to $100K.
In all, our top winners at BorgataPoker.com for the week had about $80K in winnings.
What are you doing Sunday evening?
Here’s a look at the top online winners for November 9 – November 15:
– On November 11, Carolyn from Clifton, New Jersey, won a $4,186 jackpot after placing an $8 bet on the new Mayan Riches slot game.
– On November 13, Joseph from Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey, made a $5 bet on the Loot’EnKhamun slot game and won a $4,321 jackpot.
– On November 13, Peggy from Brick, New Jersey, made a $1.50 bet on the Angel’s Touch slot game and won $6,356.70.
There’s just something nice about the number 10,000. As in a $10,000 jackpot — like the jackpot won by Johnathan from Kenilworth on BorgataCasino.com’s Super Monopoly Money slots game.
Of course, GM-MitchMurphy—the biggest online winner at BorgataPoker.com for the week of November 2 – 8—might argue that an $11,250 tournament win is better.
Hey. We’re not arguing. Two at least $10,000 wins is fine with us.
Who’s going to win the next one?
Here’s a look at the big online winners for November 2 – 8:

Back in the *old* days during the poker boom there was a silly debate that raged in poker circles and circled around one question: Who’s better at poker, the east coast or the west coast? (Apparently the South and Midwest were automatically disqualified from contention.)
Even though I bought a house in Las Vegas in 2010, I’ve always been repping the east coast in this argument. I grew up in Bayonne, New Jersey and had been into card and board games including poker and chess my entire life. When I was 19 I became deeply engrossed (read: addicted) to poker during the 2003-2004 poker boom especially since I had just given up playing college hockey at that point and was in dire need of a competitive outlet to replace it.
I spent two years — much of which should have been spent studying my majors of business and psychology at The College of New Jersey — cutting my teeth in every game I could find around campus, and when that wasn’t enough I turned to online poker. After dumping a lot of money on $5-10 tournaments and spending a semester eating Easy Mac and ramen noodles, I decided to dedicate myself to improving my game because I’m a fan of meat and other foods that weren’t cheap, and being a broke college student who was losing money at online poker was pretty far from sustainable as far as business models go.
Within three months of turning 21 and becoming a fixture in Atlantic City tournaments, I had managed to scrape together just enough a bankroll to play the WSOP Circuit when it came to town. I busted the first $340 event but then won a $75 sit-and-go into the 2nd event, a $560 NL. That tournament changed my life forever, because I ended up chopping at the final table with Matt Glantz for $34K. I went on to win two seats to the $10K main event later that week in the only two $200+rebuys I played, sold one seat to Nicky Frangos, and played my first $10K. That’s when I was able to quiet the 20% of my brain that kept telling me I was out of my mind for wanting to try to make a living playing poker and I knew that I was going to pursue this dream that I still haven’t woken up from after 9 years.

Regular readers of Borgata’s online winner’s posts know that usually, the top prize in the Sunday $50K is $10,000, but an especially strong field turned out this week. Remember, the guarantees are for a minimum, not the maximum and the field can take the payouts as high as they want to go.
