The start of the 2017 Borgata Summer Poker Open and it’s $1 Million Guaranteed kick-off event are just one week away! Online registration is available for all 21 Main Events (Events number 1 – 21) through Friday, July 7th. Onsite registration begins Monday, July 10th, at 12 noon and will remain open daily from 8am to midnight throughout the series.
The kickoff event and it’s $1 Million Guarantee will bring out big crowds, so there are four starting flights spread across the first three days of the series. Flight A begins Tuesday, July 11th, at 11am. Flight B runs Wednesday at 11am and Flights C & D are Thursday at 10am and 7pm, respectively. This event is a Best Stack Forward and Unlimited Re-Entry event, so players are encouraged to register early and register often!
Last year it was Scott Blumstein who bested the field of 2,368 entrants to claim the top prize of just under $200,000.
Joshua Gordon capped last summer’s series, snatching the Summer Open Championship title and more than $336,000 out from under the 2016 Spring Open Champion, Paul Volpe. Paul came very close to a repeat victory, taking the chip lead into a vicious four-hour heads-up battle with Joshua, who is primarily a cash game player.
This year’s Championship will again carry a $1 Million guarantee on total buy-ins and starts Sunday July 23rd with the first of two starting days. The final table will be live-streamed starting at 2pm Thursday, July 27th.
This summer’s series will have something for everyone with Seniors, Ladies, Bounties, Deep, Deeper, Deepest, Super, and Almighty Stack events. There are even Pot Limit Omaha (High) and Omaha/Stud High/Low mixed tournaments thrown in for a little variety. Check out the full main event schedule here.
‘Bricks-to-Bits’ is back, giving Summer Open tournament participants a free-roll in online tournaments with a chance to win seats in future Championship events as well as other prizes.
