Not to be outdone, however, is BorgataPoker, which is holding its Fall Garden State Super Series (GSSS) October 14 to 21. The series has more than $450,000 in guarantees spread over 24 events.
The series starts off with a $215 buy-in, $65,000 guranteed event and ends with a $100,000 guranteed main event on October 21 (buy-in $320). The 24 events offer an impressive mix of games, including bounty tournaments and turbo tournaments. There are also qualifiers for the first event and the main event.
Borgata also has a high roller tournament on October 21 with a $50,000 guarantee and a $1,060 buy-in.
The Garden State Super Series has become BorgataPoker‘s trademark online event, and they’re celebrating the fall installment by offering a leaderboard for players. The leaderboard runs for all events and awards tournament tickets and entries into major GSSS events.
