Wednesday, 3 December 2008

Second only to Vegas, Atlantic City is where it’s at; second only to the WSOP, the Borgata Poker Open is where it’s at. Hosted at the Borgata Hotel, Spa and Casino in (you guessed it) Atlantic City, the event this year promises a mighty $2,000,000 prize pool.

The fourth annual winter open, this event comes fresh after the success of their highly successful Poker Open in September. This event will run from January 13 and will culminate with the elite championship event from January 25-29.

"This year's Winter Poker Open will offer a broad range of events to appeal to our customers, and for the first time in a seasonal event, Borgata will offer players a guaranteed prize pool of $2 million in the Championship Event," said Ray Stefanelli, Director of Poker Marketing for Borgata. "We are confident that our 2009 WPO will attract both loyal and new players, and continue to position Borgata as the preeminent destination for poker on the East Coast."

The five-day Championship Event ($3,000 Buy-In + $200 Entry) features two starting days and 50,000 in chips. This year, Borgata will offer 46 distinctive events ranging from Deep Stack tournaments, Omaha High and Pot Limit tournaments to Ladies Limit, H.O.S.E. and Senior Events.
