For years, the Borgata has been at the forefront of the poker community, with yearly World Poker Tour Championships, million dollar guaranteed tournaments and just recently, the introduction of two live streamed final tables to their seasonal Borgata Poker Open schedules.
Well, the Borgata is at it again, this time, pairing up with one of the fastest growing poker communities in the country. The Borgata has partnered with bar poker leagues from region to host the first annual Bar Poker Open, a five-day, ten-tournament series with over $100,000 in guaranteed prize pools; culminating with the Bar Poker Open Invitational National Championship, which will boast a live streamed final table, just like the WPT events hosted this past September.
So, what is the Bar Poker Open?
The Open is exactly what the bar poker community has been waiting for; an enormous community of bar poker players, a series of affordable buys-in events with great guarantees, fun parties, and a National Championship Invitational.
It without a doubt will be a “million dollar poker experience, at a fraction of the cost”.
Who can participate in the Bar Poker Open?
Anyone is eligible to participate in the opening main events, but the BPO National Championship is only for affiliated league winners, and is an invite only tournament.
