Borgata Spring Poker Open tournament series
April 4 - 20, 2012

The 3rd annual Borgata Spring Poker Open tournament series starts off with a $300,000 Guaranteed Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em event on Wednesday, April 4, and concludes with the $1,000,000 Guaranteed Borgata Spring Poker Open Championship event (April 15-19). All tournament events will take place in the The Signature Room and Poker Room.  Cash games will continue to play in the Borgata Poker Room.

In addition to No Limit Hold'em (including Deep Stack, Six-Max, Survivor and Bounty) events, the 17-day series will offer H.O.R.S.E., Omaha H/L 8B, and Pot Limit Omaha (8B and High events).

Borgata's Double Play Re-Entry format for the Borgata Spring Poker Open Championship event allows players to register for either Day 1A (Sunday, April 15) or Day 1B (Monday, April 16) with the ability to Re-Enter the tournament if they bust out prior to Level 4.  If a player is eliminated on Day 1A, he/she will have the opportunity to register for Day 1B.

Borgata will also pay the Chip Leader at the end of Day 1A and the Chip Leader at the end of Day 1B $3,000 CASH.

The Borgata Spring Poker Open follows the highly-attended Borgata Winter Poker Open, and will be followed by the Borgata Summer Poker Open (June), Borgata Poker Open (including the WPT Championship in September) and Borgata Fall Poker Open (November).  That's a total of five major tournament series offered annually and further bolsters a poker program unrivaled on the East Coast!
