Playing poker online at BorgataPoker.com is always a realistic experience. The sounds of the chips stacking. The table layout. The whole deal. But on September 17th, we’re taking things to a whole new level by blurring the lines between online poker and live tournament play.
On Saturday, September 17th, up to 64 players will take a seat at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City to play in a live heads-up tournament using their laptops or mobile devices. And now’s your chance to be one of them.
Just log in to your BorgataPoker.com account and register for the Borgata Poker Open – Event Center Online Heads Up Tournament NL Hold’em event (a $500+35 buy-in).
Then, make your way to the Event Center at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City on Saturday, September 17th. We’ll shuffle up and deal at 2pm, so you’ll want to make sure you’re sitting down and ready to play before then. Oh, and you’ll need your own device to play on.
The live tournament is a heads-up event and you’ll be sitting directly across from your opponent. But instead of physical cards and real chips, everything happens online using your BorgataPoker.com account. Don’t have a Borgata online account? Sign up for a free online account.
The tournament is bracket-style (yes, same format you’re used to seeing in basketball tournaments!) There are six rounds. Each round has players participating heads up sit-n-go against opponents (i.e., Round 1 has 32 matches; Round 2 has 16 matches; Round 3 has 8 matches; Round 4 is down to 4 matches; Round 5 has 2 matches; and Round 6 has the final match of the remaining two players).
The first player to win two sit-n-go games in their match (best 2 of 3 format) will move on to the next round to face another player. Top remaining eight players share in the prize pool, with first place winning the lion’s share of 40%.
This promises to be a fun event, but it’s limited to just 64 players. So if you want to play, register now.
See you online — and in Atlantic City.
