With the Winter Poker Open just a few days away, some players will be descending on the East Coast’s preeminent poker destination over the next few hours, with many getting in more than a day early to settle in before the two and a half week long series.
Well, the Borgata Poker Room and BorgataPoker.com has added an extra incentive for players to arrive early, as there are two live qualifiers to be held on Monday January 12th, for two of the biggest WPO events of the series, the $2,000,000 GTD opening Event 1 and the Winter Poker Open WPT Championship, as well as additional online qualifiers for WPO events.
The first online qualifier offered will start today at 5:15 PM, with players able to qualify for Event 1 for just $60. Two seats are guaranteed for the $2,000,0000 event.
Furthermore, “step” qualifiers will be running daily until the WPT Championship, with more information about all online qualifiers at BorgataPoker.com.
The first live qualifier, for Event 1, will start at 12 PM and will boast a $110 + $20 entry fee, meaning close to 1 in 5 players will qualify for the opening WPO event.
The next qualifier, for the WPO WPT Championship, will start at 4 PM and will sport a $350 + $50 entry fee, putting 1 in 10 players into the $3,000,000 GTD Championship event.
Information about both live qualifiers can be found HERE.
All of these qualifiers offer players a chance to play in two of the biggest WPO events for a fraction of the price, perhaps parlaying a small buy-in qualifier into a piece of a multi-milllion dollar prize pool.
