Borgata set to offer fun-filled poker weekend

If you’re in New Jersey this weekend with nothing to do, it will be a great time to head over to the Borgata Hotel & Casino. Several events are scheduled to be held in the casino’s poker room, offering a number of ways to pick up some extra spending money.

Borgata’s Memorial Day Weekend Deepstack tournament runs today, starting at 12:00 PM. It offers a starting chip stack of 25,000 and a guaranteed prize pool of $50,000. The same event last year attracted 196 players, raising the prize pool to $68,000. The top winner last year, Martin De Vylder, pocketed about $20,000. This year, the tournament has adopted the Big Blind Ante format, as have a number of Borgata’s poker tournaments.

The Borgata Poker Summer Kick Off Series gets underway tomorrow at 11:00 AM. It will be a $300 buy-in event with a guarantee of $250,000 with a starting stack of 25,000 chips. Players can take a seat at multiple flights, and carry their largest hand to Day 2, getting underway next Tuesday. Last year’s tournament saw 1.032 players descend upon the Borgata and pushed the guarantee to $268,000.

Borgata is always a favorite with the players, and this year won’t be any different. There’s no better time than the present to take to the felt.
