$300+$40+$10 Donation Mike Sica Memorial Seniors NLH
Level 1: Blinds 50/100
The fifth annual Mike ‘Little Man’ Sica Memorial Seniors NLH event leads off a trio of one-day trophy events today at Borgata. Each entry will include a $10 donation to Gilda’s Club of South Jersey, an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community.
This tournament is named in honor of Mike ‘Little Man’ Sica, who was a fixture here at Borgata for many years before he passed away in 2013. The Seniors event was always a favorite of his and win or lose, he always had a smile on his face.
The Seniors start with 20,000 chips and all levels are 30 minutes long. This is a one-day event, so they’ll play until a winner is determined. Late registration and unlimited re-entries are possible until the start of level 9 (about 2:20pm).
Before the start of play, Michele Sica Selesky, Mike’s daughter, said a few words in remembrance of her father, ending with his signature line, “God Bless.”
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.
