The Borgata Poker Open is a much-anticipated poker tournament event that takes place each year at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa of Atlantic City, New Jersey. Players come from across the United States as well as internationally to be able to take part in the quality tournament. For 2016, the Borgata Poker Open will begin on the 6th of September and continue until the 23rd.
Included in the Borgata Poker Open schedule will be several events, with many offering large guaranteed prize pools, according to PokerNews. Some events will even have seven figure prize pools up for grabs. The top event on the schedule will be the World Poker Tour Borgata Poker Open Championship. This tournament will take place from the 18th to the 23rd of September with players paying $35,000 to compete. The guaranteed prize pool is set at $3 million for this event so players will be competing for at least this much cash if not more depending on the playing field.
The WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship will have two opening flights, one on the 18th and one on the 19th of September. The opening flights will offer unlimited reentries which will help to increase the prize pool. Those who make it to Day 1A will still have the option to compete during Day 1B, then taking their best chip stack to Day 2 and compete in the rest of the tournament.
BorgataPoker.com will soon begin offering qualifiers online allowing players to earn a seat to the championship event as well as others on the schedule. Players will be able to pay much less to take part in qualifiers in the hopes of earning a seat to this year’s Borgata Poker Open. BorgataPoker.com is open only to individuals who are located within the state of New Jersey, as online poker game play is restricted to within the state’s borders.
