One of the biggest poker series on the East Coast kicks off today as the Borgata Spring Open opens fire on the poker world with their massive $560 buy-in $1 Million Dollar Guarantee.
With new hi-tech chips in play, the Borgata has beefed up their on-table security in order to make sure there’s no jokers looking to repeat what happened during the Borgata Winter Open when counterfeit chips were introduced into play.
From the looks of it, with the announcement of increased security and chip spot checks made, players are making their way to the Borgata in droves. There’s roughly 358 runners so far according to PokerNews live reporting, and plenty more are likely to jump into one of the four starting flights for the first event.
The Borgata Spring Open boasts 17 events including the $1M Guarantee, the $2500 Borgata Spring Open Main Event, a $1k 6-max event and, of course, the World Poker Tour World Championship marking the first time the WPT has held this big-time event outside of the comfy confines of Las Vegas.
You can even satellite your way into the WPT Championship at BorgataPoker.com for little as 10 points or $1 if you buy into step 2!
