The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa's massive $560 buy-in, $1 Million Guarantee that kicks off the Spring Poker Open continued on Wednesday bringing out even more of the East Coast elite to compete for, what is shaping up to be, a massive 1st place prize for the buy-in.
Day 1b is the second of third starting days, but only the 2nd starting flight (as there are two flights tomorrow), and it’s looking more and more like tomorrow’s double starting time will pack the house. With 469 additional runners seated today, some of the biggest names in poker find themselves in action. Spotted in the field was poker enthusiast and big-time actor, James Woods, Bellagio Cup Champion Amnon Filippi, John D’Agostino, World Series of Poker Bracelet Winners Chris Reslock and Kenneth Lind (busted) and EPT Berlin Cup Champion Micah Raskin.
As noted by PokerNews’ live updates team, the total entrants through the first two flights come to a total of 827, so it’s looking like – as players rush to enter on the final day tomorrow – that the guarantee may in fact be smashed.
For those of you livin’ it up in New Jersey, you can still satty your way into the World Poker Tour $15k Championship over at Borgata Poker.com. Sure, you can get in on the action for a little as a $1, but you know, you can take multiple shots at a bunch of buy-ins.
