Play at the Borgara Winter Open $2 Million Guarantee has been halted overnight as tournament officials believe the tournament has been compromised by fake tournament chips. In fact, it looks like up to one million chips worth of bogus chips have masterfully been incorporated into the tournament.
PokerNews, who is covering the event, was on hand to break the story. According to them, Borgata Senior Vice President of Operation Joe Lupo said that Borgata officials are conducting a 24-hour investigation in conjunction with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement in which they hope to get the tournament back on track.
“We have reason to believe the tournament was compromised,” Lupo told PokerNews “There’s nothing more important than ensuring the integrity of the tournament. All other tournaments are moving forward with full confidence.”
