It has just been a few weeks since the Borgata Spring Poker Open wrapped up and now poker players in the east coast are about to be treated to the next tournament series over the summer by the same organizer. If you have been following Borgata’s events, then you will certainly be familiar with the Borgata Summer Poker Open – this is the third of the flagship live series held at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa every year.
Set to officially return on July 9, the Borgata Summer Poker Open will run for a little over two weeks and in that period, the participating poker players will be treated to some of the most exciting games in addition to being given the opportunity to compete to win life-changing amounts of money.
As it stands, the official schedule for the high-profile poker event has not been released but a few details have leaked. The poker series will reportedly kick off with the traditional $600 buy-in Open event on July 9 – this will have a guaranteed $500,000 guarantee and will run for a total of five days with three days of starting flights.
The most notable highlight of the Borgata Summer Poker Open is expected to be the Championship event which will go down as from July 21 to July 26 and will feature two days of Day 1 starting flights. Just like the previous Borgata tournament series, the Championship event is set to feature a $1 million guaranteed prize pool and a buy-in of $2,700.
To get in, poker players will have a shot at entry tickets through online qualifiers and satellites that will run on BorgataPoker.com as from June 23 to July 21. The players will be able to qualify for the events for as low as $5 in that period.
