The $1 Million Guaranteed $500+$60 Deep Stack NLH Kickoff event of the 2017 Borgata Spring Poker Open begins tomorrow at 11am with Flight A, the first of four. Online registration is no longer available, but onsite registration opens today at 12 noon and will remain open until midnight for any early birds.
Experienced players know that registration lines can get long for the big events, so early registration is strongly recommended. For players who registered online, there will be a separate window (beginning Tuesday) for completing their entry, bypassing the long lines.
There is also a live NLH satellite running at 3pm in the Poker Room, allowing players a ~1 in 5 chance to earn their entry for only $125+$25.
Tuesday’s much-anticipated action begins at 11am in the Signature Room and you can follow the action right here in the blog. Also follow us on Twitter @BorgataPoker and use #BSPO2017 to share your tweets!
The 2017 Borgata Spring Poker Open is just one week away and players should be making plans for what will be a terrific series! There are $3.2 million in total guarantees and 18 trophy events spread across 18 action-packed days. Click here for the schedule of Main Events.
As always, the series begins with a huge Kickoff. The $1 million guaranteed $500+$60 NLH tournament begins Tuesday April 18th at 11am with the first of four starting flights. With unlimited re-entries, this best stack forward event will surely see more than enough entrants to crush the guarantee. Last year, Matt Mendez came out on top of the field of more than 2,500 entrants to take home $213,192.
All your favorite tournament will be returning including the Seniors, SixMax, Almighty Stack, Super Stack Elevator, and 40 Big Blinds. The pinnacle of the series is the $2,500 + $200 Championship, which also boasts a $1 million guarantee on total buy-ins.
In 2016, Paul Volpe etched his name in Borgata’s record books, winning the Spring Championship and $356,255 — his third-largest career cash. He was already one of the game’s most respected players, but he went on to follow that up with a WSOP bracelet win in June, then returned to Borgata for the Summer Open and almost repeated as Champion. His second-place finish in the Summer Open Championship was good for nearly $190,000.
