The Borgata Event Center is eerily quiet, with the only rumblings coming from various corners of the room as the final preparations for the Winter Poker Open are put into effect.
The silence will not last long though, as we are just over a half hour from the first starting flight of the $2,000,000 GTD Event 1, where we expect thousands of players to descend on the Event Center over the next few days to get a piece of this massive prize pool.
Over 90 tables are prepped and ready to be put into play in the Event Center and while they all might not be put into use today, they all certainly will make their way into circulation at some point this series, as there are 23 main events, boasting over $6,700,000 in guaranteed prize pools, as well as close to 20 “side events” including qualifiers, survivors and bounty tournaments.
Safe to say, there is something for everyone here at the Winter Poker Open and we are extremely excited to get started and the Borgata blog team, comprised of myself, Will OC, Drew Amato and _MaXelroD_ will be bringing you coverage of every WPO event in it’s entirety.
Players are still being quarantined to the lobby of the Event Center near the registration area, but with the start of Event 1 just a half hour away, players should be let in soon and will begin to take their seats to kick off the Winter Poker Open and the $2,000,000 GTD Event 1.
A full list of the Winter Poker Open schedule will be posted shortly, where we will highlight some “fan favorites” and new events added to the WPO schedule.
