The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City will be the place to be following the Labor Day holiday when the Borgata Poker Open kicks off on Tuesday, September 8 and runs through the 22nd.

Exciting tournament action gets underway with the first of 22 events on the 8th, the $2,000,000 million guaranteed Borgata 2 Million. Featuring a buy-in of $560, the opening event sets the stage for 15 days of tournament poker that includes the $3,000,000 guaranteed $3,500 WPT Borgata Poker Open that starts on Sept. 20.

“Borgata is thrilled to welcome back the World Poker Tour for what is sure to be an incredibly successful fourteenth season,”
said Borgata’s Senior VP of Operations, Joe Lupo.

Watch on TV or Twitch

While the last event on the Borgata Poker Open schedule will be on the 22nd, action will actually continue beyond that date with the Main Event final table set for Sept. 25. That final table will be televised, and for poker fans at home who don’t want to wait for the TV broadcast, subscribe to the WPT channel and watch a live stream of the final table via Twitch.

Players in New Jersey who would rather play in the Main Event instead of watch from the rail or over the Internet can enter satellites online at BorgataPoker NJ. Satellites to the $3,500 buy-in WPT Borgata Poker Open begin as low as $400!

“Borgata offers tremendous value to all players,” stated WPT President Adam Pliska, adding that the casino “has awarded more than $80 million in prizes since Season II.”

Qualifiers to Other Events

If a $400 online satellite is a bit too steep for your budget, Borgata Poker offers qualifiers starting as low as $5. Players who advance from a qualifier will move on to satellite events.

Those satellite tournaments will then award the winners a free entry to other live events at the Borgata Poker Open. Remember, there are almost two dozen tournaments on the BPO schedule!
