Event 18 (Day 1A)
$3,300+$200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH
Level 1: Blinds 100/100
With 17 preliminary Main Events in the rear view, it’s time to focus ahead on the World Poker Tour Borgata Poker Open Championship! We’re getting underway here in the temporary Tournament Area with the first of two starting flights/days.
Players get 40,000 chips to start and the first 10 levels are one hour long. They’ll play eight of those levels today, then bag up for the night. Flight B will begin Monday at 11 am and follow the same format.
Re-entries are unlimited and this is also a Best Stack Forward event, so players who bag chips today can still play again Monday without automatically forfeiting the chips already bagged.
Registration remains open throughout both Day 1s and through the first two levels on Day 2, so players can still enter on Tuesday before the start of level 11.
The order to “Shuffle Up and Deal” has been given and cards are in the air!
As you may or may not have heard, the 2018 Borgata Poker Open will be running in a new temporary tournament area. Instead of the Event Center where we have been in the past, BPO tournaments will be running on tables in the Signature Room, the Poker Room, and a new Tournament Area in between.
The slot machines have been removed from this area and poker tables are in. This new setup is just for this series and in January we’ll be back in the Event Center for the 2019 Winter Poker Open.
This new tournament area is perfectly situated between Bread and Butter on one side and the escalator to the Marketplace Eatery on the other, giving players quick and easy access to refreshments. It’s also just a few steps to the Race and Sports Book for those who need to place a bet and the North Entrance, for those who need to step outside for some fresh air.
Online registration is closed, but on-site registration begins at 12 noon Monday, September 3rd and will remain open until midnight. Beginning Tuesday, registration will be open from 8am to midnight daily throughout the series at the Cashier windows across from the entrance to Bobby Flay’s.
