The schedule for the 2014 Borgata Spring Open has been released. Taking place at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, the 51-event series will run from April 8 through 26. The series will be highlighted by the $15,400 World Poker Tour Championship with a guaranteed $5 million prize pool.
The WPT Championship joins the Jersey Shore event for the first time ever after spending its first 11 seasons at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. In another first, the buy-in for the tournament will be lowered from $25,000 to $15,400 and re-entries will be permitted on the second Day 1 flight if a player busts on Day 1a.
“With Borgata’s well-deserved reputation for running world-class tournaments and providing unparalleled service to its players, we believe this venue is perfectly suited to host our season-culminating event,” said WPT President Adam Pliska. “We look forward to working with the team at Borgata to bring the WPT World Championship to new heights.”
The Poker Spring Open kicks off April 8 with a huge $560 event with a $1 million guaranteed prize pool. The series-opening tournament will offer re-entries during the three starting flights. Last month’s $560 opening event at the Borgata Winter Poker Open attracted nearly 5,000 runners before it was canceled due to the discovery of counterfeit chips.
Other high-profile events on the Spring Open schedule include: a $2,700 BSO Championship Event ($1 million guaranteed), a $1,090 Six-Max No-Limit Hold’em Re-Entry ($100,000 guaranteed), and a $300 Big Stack No-Limit Hold’em Re-Entry ($100,000 guaranteed).
There are also more than a dozen qualifying events to the BSO Championship and WPT Championship on offer. Players have the chance to win a seat into the WPT Championship for as little as $360 and compete against the very best poker players in the world.
