Borgata Winter Open Kicks Off January 14
The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa will launch its annual Winter Poker Open January 14 at its Atlantic City casino. While the 25-event open is played live, Borgata and its partners BetMGM.com and PartyPoker.com offer online satellites through January 26.
For those new to Atlantic City poker, the Borgata offers four seasonal poker events each year along with its trademark Borgata Open in September. The opens attract the best east coast poker players—and players from all over—and includes some pretty impressive prize pool guarantees.
Event One of the Winter Poker Open, January 14-18, has a $2 million guarantee. The Championship Event, held January 26-30, has a $3 million guarantee. These two events are the focus of the online satellites.
You can start your journey through the qualifiers for as little as $5 through January 14. Four mini-satellites will be offered daily. Winners of these mini-satellites win a $45 entry to the next round of satellites.
Those satellites win a seat to the $600 Event One in Atlantic City. The satellites for Event One will be held daily at 7:30 p.m. EST through January 14. The satellites will award one entry to Event One for every 15 players in the field.
Borgata is also running $45 buy-in satellites to win entries to Super Satellites for the Championship Event. The championship has a $3,500 buy-in. These satellites will also be held Monday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. EST.
